I’ve had blissful week off to enjoy autumn, my favourite season, and allow myself to be inspired by the world around me. I took my Fuji XT1 to Camber with me – I’m really starting to feel comfortable with the camera now after a few months of not being sure it as the one for me.
It was December last year when I first visited Sugardough with my camera for my (neglected) personal blog. I returned a few weeks back with my camera and a brief from the guys from Sugardough – to capture the interior, exterior and general atmosphere of their new shop in Market St, Brighton and to head back to their Hove shop to get some colour shots.
Last week I was out in Ibiza shooting a new body of work for a new food and lifestyle site/blog that launches next month. More news on that when it comes but in the meantime here’s a few stills I shot between shooting time. I hope you enjoy them.
It’s always a great honour when another photographer contacts you wanting to hire your services! Mi is a successful photographer and runs a video and photography business True North Vision as well as teaching workshops on vlogging, The Vlog Acadamy.
We shot a series of portraits in her home and work space.
Some simple portraits for Brighton singer Rachael shot in a short session at the cottage. Rachael just needed a few headshots for bios, her website and social media – short portrait shoots are available on short notice and are an affordable way to get professional photos onto your websites.
I was hunting around earlier for a new desktop image and was reminded of this set of scans – the last roll of film before I sold my Contax camera to raise the funds to buy the Fuji XT-1. The jury’s still out on that one!
Lila and I knew of each other online and have been meaning to get together for a shoot for ages! It was well overdue so we opted for a quick, informal shoot at home and I loved shooting with her – she’s so versatile and it’s amazing how she falls into each look like a different person. A natural model.
Ali embarked on a whole year of No Meet No Treat – she wouldn’t buy any clothes from anyone she hadn’t met. No mean feat and she was so inspired she launched her own clothing range alongside her rather amazing silk scarves under the Age of Reason brand.
I had the honour of shooting some food recently for talented and humble team The Pickled Kitchen. They needed a bulk of images for their website, showcasing them at work and the food for both the in-house menu at The Park Crescent and their catering side of the business. We aimed for a more in situ look for these images rather than styled with props to fit with the down to earth ethos of the team.
I’ve been off work for a few months following an operation but on my return I’ve been really busy shooting all sorts for the people of Sussex and London! I’m so grateful for everyone’s patience and really happy to be busy again.
I adore working with Alexis, she’s fun, driven and a good egg. I was honoured to shoot with her for super exciting clothing brand Atterley Road on a piece for their ‘The Road’ series documenting how Alexis juggles a home life with 3 boys and manages to run a business as well as the blog. And manages to look so crazy good. We shot some outfit posts, some interior stuff, some lifestyle and some street style.
I was down in the New Forest recently for work and I fell in love with Lymington all over again. I’ve never actually been to the sea wall – an expanse of coastal heathland, grazed by animals and littered with wanderers that I cycled along just as the last of the light teetered out. Loved it there so much.
Just a few bits I shot on film during August – in Brighton/London/Leicester/The New Forest.
