Ulorin Vex (NSFW)


I had decided I wanted to shoot some nudes against the black seamless paper. The nude set was shot using a single light (the large gridded, rectangular softbox) in a variety of positions (including hung overhead on a boom)

This one was actually shot using a lensbaby - it's not always easy to get the right composition/effect with the lensbaby, but when I do I really like the result:

Our make-up artist, Lorraine Brown, joined us after lunch and we shot some latex in the afternoon. Again, these are all shot using the lensbaby.

Don't take my Kodachrome away ... Madame Bink with styling by Nikita Sablier


This was my second shoot with Madame Bink - she had offered the opportunity to shoot with Nikita Sablier as stylist, so I flew down to Bristol and drove into deepest darkest Wiltshire on a very wet night to spend a day shooting with them at Team Binkerston HQ. Getting to meet the dogs (Dillan, Ruby and Major), Adam Robertson and Stefano Brunesci was a nice bonus too :D

I've processed these using the X-Equals Kodachrome Lightroom Presets - these just felt really appropriate for this style of retro pin-up.

This last shot is rather different from my usual work - this was taken using a Lensbaby Composer - it's one of our favourites of the day.

Billie Lister #2


Billie Lister and I have been trying to arrange a shoot for a while. After postponing from before Christmas we got this date with Lorraine Brown as MUA.

It has been slightly more than a year since I had worked with Billie - we had produced some stunning headshots in the first session and we nailed it again with this set too.
