The Beauty of Summer

After working with Emilee I had rediscovered a taste for shooting and although I still had a hefty backlog of images (still do actually!) I was anxious to get another shoot in soon before the summer was over. I had booked a week off work covering my birthday in July and felt this presented the … Continue reading The Beauty of Summer

Emilee Kim in Dawlish Warren

The Kimono

After such a fun shoot in 2018, I knew I wanted to work with Emilee again as soon as I was able to. Fast forward to early summer 2019 and after bouncing some ideas off each other we realised we had a small window to shoot as Emilee returned to Bristol from a few days … Continue reading The Kimono

Those Winter Streets

Back to the beginning of 2019 and my first images of the year. I'd been contacted by my friend Abz who was planning a video for his You Tube channel.  He'd been planning a '5 minute portrait' series and the first shoot he had scheduled in was with Jaime.  Abz asked me to come along … Continue reading Those Winter Streets

Linda

I'm going to jump ahead a few months from the last post now into the summer of 2019.  Hang on, that's only last year!  I'm catching up on myself! I'd found Linda on Instagram as a recommended person to follow, so I did. Linda didn't post all that much, but when she did it was … Continue reading Linda

Ploy

Ploy in Chinatown

After having such an enjoyable shoot with Ploy the previous year I was excited at the opportunity to work with her again.  We messaged occasionally via either Facebook or PurplePort and when she learned I was heading back to Thailand she immediately proposed a street shoot in Chinatown. I'd visited Chinatown with Nelly the year … Continue reading Ploy in Chinatown

God Save Queens

You might think that being on lockdown I'd be able to spend more time working on my photo backlog and blog posts.  It turns out that's not been the case so far at all.  In fact, working from home equals even more hours spent in the working week than usual! I've managed to get some … Continue reading God Save Queens

Dragon

It seemed no sooner had we finished one shoot, then Jaime had an idea for another.  As the summer progressed I found myself falling further and further behind with my processing - but we were having so much fun and I knew I'd only have the opportunity of a few more weeks before Jaime would … Continue reading Dragon

Fairground Attractions

The next shoot of the summer of 2018 with Jaime-Lee was another of her own desire and vision. Jaime had become aware of a indoor fairground operating near the western border of Devon, had seen a few photos from other people shooting there and was taken with the place.  By this point Jaime had grown … Continue reading Fairground Attractions

Dea Dicapria

Streets of Soho

I always try to take a week off work if I can around my birthday and as it happened, that's the week that fell when I had my first shoot with Jaime.  That wasn't the only shoot planned for that week however. Dea Dicapria and I had stayed loosely in contact since our shoot in … Continue reading Streets of Soho

The Cheongsam

For this third post in a row, I'm showing the results of a shoot with Jaime-Lee.  We really did shoot a whole bunch in the summer of 2018! If the last shoot was all Jaime's idea, then this one was mine.  For a couple of year's now I'd thought about how good it would be … Continue reading The Cheongsam
