Hollywood Glamour, 70s leather and Steam Punk duo shoot with Poppy and Darren

Poppy (IG @poppy_valentines) got in touch to arrange a duo shoot with Darren (IG @darrensmodel) to boost her portfolio with some duo retro and cosplay images. Our first theme was a 50s Hollywood starlet scenario, followed by some 70s alt rocker images. The duo then transformed themselves into a Steam Punk couple for the last set.  The many costumes and props available at our studio  were combined with the models costumes to give extra authenticity to all the themes.

Surreal apocalyptic shoot at Antwerp Mansion with actor and model Darren

Darren is a very dedicated and versatile model and actor who I have worked with on a number of occasions. He owns an extensive personal wardrobe as well as a huge variety of props that he can supply to give extra authenticity and excitement to any shoot. We booked a morning at Antwerp mansions, a dedicated run-down and urban photography space in Rusholme, Manchester. Using the grungy and dilapidated interior, we worked on several scenarios to produce some surreal, steampunk, alternative and sci-fi shots.
