Kianis returned for another shoot but this time to re-create an authentic 30s P G Woodhouse character complete with tails coat top hat monocle and many other props that we have available at our studio.

Euan is an upcoming model and Instagrammer (@euanthum) who got in touch to arrange a studio shoot, which he hadn’t experienced before, his previous experience being outdoor and travel shoots for his Instagram account. We covered black and white portraits with leather jackets using some of the extensive wardrobe of costumes in our studio, formalwear shots, some arty fantasy shots with candelabra and decanter and ended with some spiky steam punk images!
Kes’s second shoot took full advantage of all the props, furniture, costumes and make-up we have to offer. We started off with boudoir style images with the chaise long and chiffon, then experimented with a ‘gold’ theme with glitter and our newly acquired gilt frame and finished off with semi-formal all-white fashion shots.
Paige got in contact after our street shoot earlier in the year to arrange a shoot to give her a set of shots for publicity, social media and modelling. She bought along lot of bright branded outfits and we created loads of bright, fun, energetic images.

Paige contacted us on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/jbdi_photos/ to book a model portfolio shoot to add some images to her portfolio and for some photos for her new modelling agent.
