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.

Joined 500px

Hi all, just a note to say I have joined the 500px community.

I have joined here with the purpose to have a portfolio of exclusive fine art images.

At the minute there are some fine art body scape images available for sale in print, canvas and acrylic.

Over the summer I hope to get a lot more variety there for something unique.


Photo Portrait session in Tannaghmore Gardens with Barbara and Tim

Finally!! lol I contacted Tim quite a while ago to ask if he would be interested in modelling for a photography session for me. With work being extremely busy it got pushed on the back burner with both Tim and myself.

But it was a joy to meet up with him several weeks ago and arranged to meet up for a studio session. Unfortunately the studio was not available on the day that suited him, so we had to settle for a locational shoot. He also asked if I could photograph his girlfriend Barbara, a beautiful girl from Brazil, which I was more than happy to include.

So I'm just back from the shoot and it was a real joy to meet them both and  capture some images for both of them.

Here are a few from that session that I hope you like. Neither of them ad ever stood for model photography before and it can feel un-natural or posy but I think they both managed well on their first time.
