Model : Phil Thomas
Location: Jewellery Quarter
Yesterday I met up with Phil Thomas also a photographer located in Birmingham looking instead of capturing a shoot but to be the one being photographed for a change!
We met in Birmingham, and travelled down to the Jewellery Quarter weather was lovely and sunny so I knew this was going to be a good shoot!
I’ve recently started using Jewellery Quarter more as a location for my portrait work, I love the modern buildings and especially the different colours and textures I have found to use as backgrounds in my shoots.
For this particular shoot, I found a nice grey toned brick building that I used, I felt it really contrasted well with what Phil was wearing, having a dark background with his light tone clothing he was wearing such as he’s beanie hat and Jacket.
I am really happy with how this shoot turned out and love how all the colours contrasted well together to create the finishing photos!
Here are a few images from the shoot!
Flash Fitness shoot
Model - Samuel Gordon
Location - Black Country Barbell
Last week, I went and met up with Samuel Gordon, a personal trainer and nutritionist for his business Flash Fitness.
He was looking to have a photoshoot done capturing a range of different shots of himself doing different exercises which show his strength and definition as a personal trainer, but it also shows to his clients what he can do and his knowledge as someone who does this for a living.
As a location we decided to use the Black Country Barbell, an up and coming gym based in Stourbridge with a great range of equipment and space to work with perfect for this shoot, I was also a fan of the colours with this gym red and black tones which gave it a nice dark and gloomy look to work with whilst it being well lit with a lot of natural light coming through.
Here are a range of shots I captured from this shoot, capturing Flash Fitness at what he does best!
DJ - Spacejumpsalute - Marcus
Studio - Boxed Studios
Last week I got asked to do a shoot from an up and coming DJ into the music scene Space Jump Salute.
He came to me with the idea of getting some press shots done for his music, Marcus had previously seen work I have done with other shoots and chose me as his photographer to capture his shoot in my style.
He was exceptionally fond of my double exposure work I had created.
We did a couple hours shoot using a range of backdrops, I went for colours which I felt stood out and reflected on his social media pages such as instagram and facebook and his music style.
I went for a rustic orange and a sage green, the lighting I decided to use was an Octabox which lights up my subject perfectly with a nice soft light for the majority of the shoot as well as using a singular soft box to create different light and tones onto my subject from different angles.
He brought along a wardrobe of colourful clothing to suit the idea of the shoot and blended well with the backdrops chosen.
Overall I felt the shoot was a success and happy with the outcome of what I got out of the shoot.
Below are a few shots I had taken from this shoot.
