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
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.
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.
Debut male model Jonathan contacted us to start his modelling portfolio. During a concentrated shoot we covered many different looks and Jonathan soon warmed up, producing some great poses.
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.
Male model Callum booked a shoot to broaden his port with some character portraits and costume shots working with many of the props and costumes available in our well-equipped studio.
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.
Mervyn got in contact to arrange a shoot to build his portfolio. Our studio session was very productive and we produced some dark and atmospheric character shots with low key lighting and a few of the many props available in the studio.
