Back in October of 2015 I was invited to take part in a last minute shoot in Torquay with the amazing Amie Boulton and fellow photographer, Eleanor Stobbart.
It was a murky, freezing cold day and at this stage I was pretty new to portrait photography. I wasn’t holding out much hope for getting decent images, but figured it’d be a great opportunity to learn from two people I admired. Both Eleanor and Amie are super friendly and easy going and within 5 minutes of sitting down with our pre-shoot coffees we were laughing away and I knew we’d have a great day.
First location was Torquay Pier, which is a really cool structure. On such a cold day out of season, it was really quiet so we could shoot away without any distractions. For our second location we spotted some lobster pots around the harbour. These easily turned into my favourite images of the day. The colour and textures here were unreal. The final location was a little rocky cove we found around the back of Living Coast. We shot here until it got dark and poor Amie was shaking. That was followed up by some good old fish and chips in order to refuel and warm up!
Here’s a bunch of my images from the shoot. Amie is amazing and if you’re looking for a stunning fashion model then I highly recommend her.
PS. Big thanks to Steven Chapman for his reflector bouncing skills!
