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.

Wolfwear Athletics Sports wear

I thought I had placed photographs taken for Wolfwear Athletics  in the blog before now, but on checking it has dawned on me that I have not. Wolfwear Athletics has been a project under taken this year which has been so rewarding for me personally. It all started out one day in the gym when I over heard a conversation with Teresa who I have photographed with a lad. He had or was in the process of designing his own sports range and was looking to get a photographer. I approached Ryan, introduced myself and offered to help him if he wanted by shooting his range for him.

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.
