After arranging a shoot with male model, Leon, he was very keen to try out a boxing theme. Luckily, we have a punchbag, boxing gloves and retro boxing shorts on hand art the studio, so all we needed was Leon to provide the action and drama. We experimented with some atmospheric back lighting, smoke, water spray and stage blood to create some gritty and powerful shots.
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.
Model and actor extraordinaire ‘The Bard’ visited the studio for a ‘ Johnny Depp’ themed shoot. he bought his own pirate costume and we combined his acting and characterisation skills with the many props available at the studio to create some inspired theatrical images with a real feel for the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ films
Marco got in contact wanting to add some character shots to his port. We worked on some 30s style Peaky Blinders and formal wear themes. Marcus got straight into character and we obtained some atmospheric period shots.
Jiri arranged a shoot to boost his port – we covered several different looks from formal fashion through retro beachwear to American football to give him some more striking images to enhance his modelling career.
Mark got in contact to expand his portfolio with some new fitness shots with a twist – again using some of the amazing array of the studio’s costume, props and make-up. We provided blood, sweat and tears as well as smoke for him to spice up his port.
Tom visited the studio to create new costume images and enlarge his portfolio by taking advantage of the amazing variety of costumes and props available in our studio near Manchester Airport. We used a ceremonial sword and the peaky blinders outfit that is available to all models booking shoots with us.
Callum who is now represented by Maverick models contacted me to fix up another shoot to add some more fashion and editorial images to his portfolio. Now much more experience, Callum was able to take full advantage of the costumes and props available at the studio to pose for some striking images. I was really impressed how he is much more at ease and able to produce more interesting and creative poses.
Budding actor Ross got in touch to arrange a character and costume shoot. After some discussion we settled on the idea of using the props in the studio to improvise a steam punk stage set and compliment it with a combination of way-out costume accessories. Harnessing Ross’s acting skills, some coloured gels, backlighting and stage smoke we achieved a really atmospheric set of images.
Up-and-coming model, Callum, already signed with Maverick models in Manchester, wanted more images to diversify his port, so we worked on some fashion shots, formalwear, fitness and some more casual outdoor images.
