3 actors/male models visited the studio in the last couple of months and we produced some exciting character and costume shoots – ‘The Bard’ as a medieval knight, Tyler as a Tommy Shelby style gangster and Darren as a 40s film noir sleuth. Actor headshots and costume shoots with our many props and accessories are always available at our studio near Manchester Airport, please contact to make a booking.
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
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.
Paige got in contact after our street shoot earlier in the year to arrange a shoot to give her a set of shots for publicity, social media and modelling. She bought along lot of bright branded outfits and we created loads of bright, fun, energetic images.
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.
Another retro shoot highlighting late 50s/early 60s high-end fashion with ‘Jobless mermaid’ who supplies all her own retro outfits. Fans, fascinators, faux-fur all came together to create some glamour from yesteryear!
Samuel has worked with us on a number of shoots over the last few years and after returning to Manchester contacted us to book some shoots to update his portfolio.We chose 2 contrasting themes – steam punk followed by all-white semi-formal fashion!!
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.
