Creative Art project with Rebecca Durran MUA

A month or so ago I placed a castling call up on my Model Mayhem site asking for stylists, make up artist and hair designers. I have been taking part in model photography for almost 2 years now and want to progress into a more polished and professional image. That can not be done with photography alone but needs a good group of stylists, mua and hair designers all working together to produce work they can all take pride in.

A couple of weeks ago Rebecca Durran contacted me and we met up in a cafe in Portadown to discuss ideas about make up. Rebecca was looking to collaborate with me on a creative art project. Rebecca was already aware of the models I had photographed on Model Mayhem and  after contacting them about this, they all wanted to take part.

The hardest part of any collaboration is planning lol. Rebecca, model, studio and myself all have to have free time all at once. After giving Rebecca my work schedule, she mentioned Thursday last week and a day when she would be free. It just so happened that Vitalij had also said he had Thursday free too also. So I was on the ball with the studio to get it booked which worked out for an evening shoot.

Below are some of the images produced from that shoot.

You may recognise Vitalij from a shoot I did with him last year.
Vitalij is an androgynous model which gives the visual concept of neither male or female. This look can be misunderstood, but it is a very respected aspect in the model world.

When I mentioned the creative art project to Vitalij he was very excited to be a part of it and both Rebecca and myself were equally exciting to be given the opportunity to to work with someone like Vitalij.

When Vitalij arrived he wanted  to try and push his androgynous look a bit further than he had before with a full female look.

Rebecca was more than eager to oblige and I left them to the make up while I got the lighting studio set up to give a bright fashion look.

Below is the first shoot that is not as far into the creative art look as we would have liked, but it did give both Rebecca and myself our first opportunity to see how we worked together. We both agreed to call Carlos in for a shoot to fully try a full blown creative art look. Today we meet up in the studio, and for 3 hours we all worked together, each giving input and have got some incredible images.

But for now. Below are some of the images from the first shoot with Vitalij.

Monica's Model Photography Session at Brownlow House

Welcome to another post. A while back, Monica contacted me looking to know if I could shot a Gothic Style themed session with her. Of course it didn't take long to think about the answer! It was a resounding yes.
Not only would Monica's choice of clothes be critical, but the location and the post production editing. Last August I photographed a wedding at Brownlow House in Lurgan, Northern Ireland and the place really stuck in my head for an excellent location for the right shoot. With Monica focused on a Gothic style model  shoot, it was just crying out to be used for it. So we meet up and within about 10 minutes the rain started!! There was so much we wanted to try and do, but the rain pushed us for time and thought, and before we knew it we were inside and  seeking a few indoor shoots.
Brownlow House did not disappoint though and with a bit of post production touch up we were able to capture that atmospheric feel to some of the image. So below is a selection of the images …

Wolfwear 2019 new Range of Ladies wear

It was a joy again to be asked to photograph Wolfwear's new range of sports wear.

After doing the first shoot for Ryan, and training in the same gym, it has been nice to now have Ryan as a friend.
