Published Work – Gorgeous Freaks Magazine

We were recently approached by alternative model – Frankie Lou to collaborate on a magazine cover shoot for alternative fashion magazine Gorgeous Freaks. We’re always up for a challenge and even though this was a little outside my usual comfort zone I thought this would be a great chance to try out some new ideas and maybe get some exposure through the magazine.

There was no real theme for the shoot so we had a chat about possible setups and looks and worked out three separate sets with the make-up artist (the fantastic Bambii Riiot). For the final set I went out on the scrounge and managed to borrow a motorbike from one of our neighbors and brought it into the studio!

Here are the tearsheets from the magazine that was published this month:

Professional Property Photography – Staffordshire Windmill

We were recently contacted by AirBNB (whom we have worked with on a number of occasions previously) for a very special project to provide commercial photography for an amazing B&B location. AirBNB are a company that really value professional imagery and have been able to monitor the uplift of having professional photographs advertising rental properties and B&B businesses through their vast network of hosts and customers.

This particular B&B (hosted by the really friendly Kate & Chris) is located in a converted windmill deep in the countryside of rural Staffordshire. With fantastic views, unique architecture and stunning character, this property was a pleasure to photograph. The unusual shape of some of the rooms required some unorthodox shooting positions but overall the shoot was a realy enjoyable one (even with all those stairs!).

Here are some of the images we captured on the project:

For more images and information about staying at the windmill please head over to Kate & Chris’ page on AirBNB.

Cheshire Automotive Photography – Land Rover Shoot

There are a number of different channels through which we get new clients for commercial and automotive photography but by far the most satisfying is when we are hired after being recommended by another of our clients. Last year we did some work for Auto Pro-Motorsports which they were really pleased with and as well as giving us a great testimonial, they had also personally recommended us to another motor industry service provider, Spectrum Motor Centre (SMC).

SMC were looking to expand their business and were setting up a specialist division customising and selling specialist Land Rovers. To support this they were looking for some stunning automotive photography of one of their show vehicles to use to promote the new business online and in print.

The brief for the shoot was to create one main image of the vehicle (and was to include a model standing beside it) and several other detail shots of the various custom features. Here are the finished shots that we produced as part of this commercial photography project:
