Cosplay, Wild West and Gangsters

Ciaron, an actor, armourer and costumier for theatre and cinema, is a regular visitor to the studio. Here’s a compilation from 3 shoots during 2023 including Ganster, Steam Punk, Jason from Friday 13th, Wizard and Wild West themes – all costumes supplied by Cairon, plus props available in our studio.

Kianis – Character and Cosplay shoot

After Kianis’s first shoot , we very promptly arranged a follow-up session to pursue themes that we did not have time to cover during our initial meeting. The first theme was a ‘

30s working class/peaky blinders costume combination, we then changed to a more outlandish steam punk alt fashion outfit and finished the shoot with some colourful male fusion images.

Classic Art Nude and Cosplay with Phil

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.

 

Mythical ‘Ariadne’ Shoot with female model Helen Diaz

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!

New portfolio boost shoot for male model Matthew

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!

Portfolio building for actor Louis Tappenden

Up and coming actor Louis visited the studio to update his actor headshots and to start a portfolio with a view to getting more bookings as a male model. We manages to cover a wide range of styles and poses in a relatively short space of time.
