Celtic Warrior shoot with Ciaron

Ciaron (The Bard) is an actor, costumier and theatrical armourer. Periodically we arrange a shoot to showcase a new costume. For this shoot Cairon brought a Celtic warrior outfit complete with leather jerkin, cloak, leather arm bands and a very stylish long sword. I experimented with various dramatic lighting styles to maximise the visual impact of Ciaron’s amazing costum.e

Alex Wright Shoot

Alex is an emerging male model with a growing Instagram following @alex_wright_official and a fast developing catalogue of shoots. He visited the studio while in Manchester working with other photographers. We covered a number of different shoot styles, including gritty black and white portraits, formalwear shots, a sportswear theme and we also included some images of Killer Whale clothing, a brand that Alex is currently promoting.

Euan – Fashion, Formalwear and Editorial shoot

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!

Portfolio Shoot with fitness model Dexter

Dexter got in contact to arrange an underwear, fitness and physique shoot to boost his male modelling portfolio. We covered a range of themes from portrait through topless and underwear to some more revealing physique shots to give him a great choice of images to use for his online and agency portfolios.

Another Retro, Surreal, Creative Shoot with Darren

Darren and I had been planning a return shoot at Antwerp Mansion in Manchester for some time and finally managed to arrange a date. The venue is a deliberately run-down Victorian mansion that has had a spell as a nightclub in recent years. The space is full of weird and characterful areas. We chose the dilapidated grand piano to create a scenario involving a virtuoso pianist in ‘film noir’ style, then moved on to some surreal images in front of one of the windows and some dark, surreal ideas in the cellar!

Actor headshots for Harley

Actor and model Harley got in touch to update his port with some portraits, headshots and costume shots using the props and outfits we have in our studio. We started with some gritty black and white portraits and then progressed onto a Dickensian/cosplay theme with top hat and tuxedo and ended the shoot with a sports and casual theme.
