Poppy (IG @poppy_valentines) got in touch to arrange a duo shoot with Darren (IG @darrensmodel) to boost her portfolio with some duo retro and cosplay images. Our first theme was a 50s Hollywood starlet scenario, followed by some 70s alt rocker images. The duo then transformed themselves into a Steam Punk couple for the last set. The many costumes and props available at our studio were combined with the models costumes to give extra authenticity to all the themes.
Lauren booked a shoot to spice her port up with some alt fashion, gothic and glamour shots. We created some fantasy gothic images using a mini stage set that I constructed in the studio and moved on to some retro glamour shots. Lauren supplied some great costumes and we ended up with some amazing images.
A model of great ability and experience, Helen Diaz visited the studio to shoot a scenario dedicated to ‘Ariadne’ the wife of ‘Dionysus’. We constructed a special set to evoke the classical mythology and to pay homage to classical and renaissance art. Just for a touch of variety we finished the shoot with some ‘Film Noir’ shots!
Princess Bee booked a shoot to take advantage of some of the amazing props we have at the studio. We shot some weird and whacky steam punk themed images and rounded the shoot off with a few 70s inspired 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.
Another retro shoot highlighting late 50s/early 60s high-end fashion with ‘Jobless mermaid’ who supplies all her own retro outfits. Fans, fascinators, faux-fur all came together to create some glamour from yesteryear!
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. We met in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and chose a few suitable urban backdrops to capture some street fashion shots. She’s the first model we’ve worked with whose done the splits during a shoot! This was also the first shoot featuring a new addition to our kit, the Fuji XT 3
Having worked with male model Brenden previously, he suggested we did a duo shoot with his partner Emily to include fitness, casual and fashion shots for both of them. We managed to cover an amazing wide range of styles in a short space of time resulting in a great variety of shots for all our portfolios.
Young, recently graduated actor and male model, Dale Brendan, visited the studio to update his actor headshots and also expand his male modelling portfolio images. We shot some classic headshots and also played around with some more varied fashion styles to give him a wider variety of shots for his portfolio.
Having collaborated several times with JM, we decided to evolve our retro fashion portfolio to pay homage to Puccini’s Madame Butterfly with some geisha shots. We also experimented with an ornamental back head dress with some stylish all black images
