My photographic journey

Editorial shoot with birds of prey

This is the second time I had the opportunity to collaborate with Pete Hurst of Falconry South East. We headed to Quex Park, where Pete is based, for a day of "wildlife photography", but me being me, I had a different kind of wildlife on my mind :-)

The line up of birds was quite impressive: from the relatively common Barn Owl and Kestrel to rarities like, Snowy Owl, Eagle Owl, Buzzard, not to mention the fabulous models Madge and Tamara.

As always the ever so unpredictable British weather threw a little curve ball, and it was VERY foggy throughout the day. In retrospect, it turned out to be a good thing and allowed for an element of mystery in the photos.

Here are a couple of my favorite shots from the day.

Sports Editorial Shoot with Elle Beth

I've shot with Elle a few times before, mixing fashion and artistic nude themes, but she recently contacted me to collaborate on some lifestyle-editorial images, as she is looking to expand her work into this genre. We've bounced ideas on Pintrest and set a few dates to shoot some portfolio work for both of us.
Today was the first session, focused around fitness and sport. Here are a few of the first edits. All natural light.

Promo shoot - Yada Academy

Team Yada! invited me back to the IOD, to shoot their new initiative - the Yada Academy, an internship project for students interested in business and marketing. I must say I didn't expect the level of passion and involvement everybody had at the event. I was really impressed!
