Actor, Costumier, Fight director and male model Ciaron @ciarondavies booked another shoot to showcase his latest outfits which he uses and hires out in his professional acting career. We shot a diverse selection of images featuring the two outfits Ciaron provided which resulted in some dramatic imagery.
Actor Phill, who was visiting from London, got in touch to arrange a shoot to take advantage of the many props available in our studio near Manchester Airport. Luckily, I had just added some new classic Greek antique props which we were able to utilise for the first time. Keen to show off his great physique, Phill posed nude for most of the images. This is the first shoot in a series of classic or renaissance inspired collaborations that I planning, in which I’m hoping to feature contemporary models interacting with antique props.
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!
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
After our Peaky Blinders style shoot over a year ago, Matthew contacted me again to arrange a portfolio booster for his male model portfolio. We covered a number of creative scenarios from 60s James Dean shots with leather jacket, 60s retro selfies with Milford Sportsman camers, through a cabaret costume with topcoat and stick to a ‘JR’ cowboy theme!
Darren contacted me to arrange a shoot to add some more dramatic images to his portfolio. We set up a ‘steam punk’ style stage set in the studio and Darren wore some outfits from his extensive leatherwear wardrobe. We ended the shoot with some moody portrait shots.
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.
I arranged a shoot with up and coming model and actor Matthew for a ‘Peaky Blinders’ themed shoot complete with retro costume and a specially constructed studio set to experiment with lighting and gels. We also managed to fit a few formalwear shots into the session.
