Nostell priory wedding

Today was a pre-wedding meeting with  Alice and Richard who are tying the knot at Nostell Priory on 24th July. I headed over to Alice’s family home in Hillam for the meeting and it also gave me a chance to scope out the setting for the big day as this is where she will travel from. The extensive gardens were great for our engagement shoot, a great way of us all getting to know each other and have a practice  session with the camera. Not everyone is comfortable with being centre of attention in front of a camera but Alice and Richard had no problems and we captured some great relaxed images. The rose garden at Nostell should make a fine setting for the photos with the roses probably at their best at the end of July. The wedding will take place in the upper hall at the house then we will make our way over to the rose garden for the formals and the wedding party photos. So long as the weather holds, we’ll have a great time I’m sure.

Product photography: Bridget’s Boutique

Online retailer, Bridget’s Boutique, were looking for some product photography as part of a revamp of their website and to promote their own brand of underwear and accessories. They brought along a range of sports underwear and beach cover-ups as well as a few different styles of sunglasses. I suggested shooting the product images on a neutral grey background as this tends to suit most styles of fashion regardless of the colours of the outfits. I love the soft dove grey that I get by using a white infinity sweep and choking back the amount of light that hits it. As well as the standard product shots, I created a few impact shots for the opening page banner. The clothes were all pretty much straight forward but sunglasses are a different matter all together. The highly reflective lenses and plastic frames are very prone to specular highlights and large white reflections from the studio lights, but as an experienced product photographer, I managed to get around this problem.

If you are looking for a product photographer, either for a whole range of goods or just a few pack shots, just call the studio on 01924 229800 to discuss your requirements.

Yorkshire fashion photographer: Gemma’s portfolio boost

Gemma found my website while looking for a Yorkshire fashion photographer as she’s been looking to update her portfolio for a while. After a quick phone call to arrange a session, she was over in the studio for the shoot. We did a good selection of outfits from casual through to lingerie but I did like this set from inside the dinning room section of the studio. Lots of natural light coming in through the huge glass doors and just given a lovely boost from a Profoto B1 in a shoot through brolly.

Yorkshire fashion photographer: Concept fashion shoot

Yorkshire fashion photrographer

I love my job as a Yorkshire fashion photographer; I get to work with some great creatives and today was no exception. I was shooting a concept fashion set for local designer, Debbie Bosco, which included a dress made entirely from party ribbons, a dress made from a few thin leather straps, a fabulous coat and a dress made for dyed voile! I decided to shoot much of the shots on a neutral grey background, (it’s a white background actually, I just light it to 20% grey) as this tends too suit most fashion styles and I can easily colour shift it in post. I also shot a some low key stuff on a black background and used a few gels for different looks and effects. My friend Willima Barrington-Binns was there too with his 100mp Phase 1 which I just had to have a go with! However, all these images are taken on my trusty Nikon D810 which is outstanding in the studio. All the liughting was done with just three Profoto B1 heads into softboxes, strip boxes, grids or a giant parabolic umbrella.

Wildlife photography in Spain: Bonelli’s and golden eagles

Some of you will know that I got interested in photography through my love for wildlife and birds and I still go off with the big telephoto lens whenever I can to indulge my passion for wildlife photography. I’ve just returned from a nature photography trip to Spain where I have been photographing golden eagle, Bonelli’s eagle and great bustard. These are all iconic species found in Spain and it was an incredible experience, as ever, to be close to such magnificent birds. There’s a much more detailed post over on my nature photography website, Wildscenes, where you will find many more photographs from the trip.
