Billie Lister 29/11/09


Billie Lister had been taking a break from modeling, but got in touch on Facebook because she wanted some updated headshots. These were shot in the EPS studio, with Ruth Evans performing make-up duties. The black and white conversions were done in Photoshop using the Totally Rad Lith-E-Yum! action. Post-processing is a mixture of Photoshop and Lightroom.

Charlie Banks 21/11/09


This shoot with Charlie Banks is the last of my three confirmed shoots with the models in the Hot Sauce video. This time we didn't have good weather and we just shot in the studio. Taiyyibah Bashir was on hand for make-up and she was all prepared to shoot some period work - wig and all (even brought some wallpaper as a background!).

We followed that with something much more modern and Charlie wearing my suit and one of my shirts - we tried, but the end results just don't work as well as we'd hoped. Probably my first obvious failure in a shoot, but the period shots more than make up for that.

Desiree Worth 15/11/09


Desiree is another Hot Sauce video model. Again, she wanted some outdoors shots with the autumn colours. Also taken locally in Livingston and again we were blessed with blue skies and sunshine (but not warmth) - also shot with the 70-200mm and a little fill flash.

Slightly more appropriate for mid-November:

This was followed by some studio work with Ruth Evans joining us to handle the make-up.

Haz Still 8/11/09


I'd met Haz Still at the Hot Sauce video shoot and she was keen to get some new portfolio material. This was our first time working with Ruth Evans for make-up. The autumnal outdoors shots were taken in the middle of Livingston and we got surprisingly nice weather for the start of November (though it was still pretty chilly with traces of frost).

These all shot with the 70-200mm. A little bit of fill flash was used on the later outdoors shots (we lost a little bit too much of the sun).

The outdoors stuff was followed up with a couple of hours in the home studio - still with the 70-200mm.
