A ‘Couple’ Of Models…

… get it?

Pun totally intended.

Ok nobody is laughing, I’ll move right along shall I.

It’s not often that I photograph multiple people together, unless of course I’m shooting a wedding or an event. So working with two models in the studio together was really refreshing. One day a few months back now, I photographed both Jimmy and Dayana for their folios. Whilst they were there, we thought we would do a few shots with both of them in the frame. This is how they turned out…

Fun fact: both of them prefer being camera right. Banter and face-blocking ensued…

Incase you didn’t realise, these two are an actual couple. So funny to watch, and such a great energy on set. Here are a few more out-takes.

Finally Getting To Work With Jimmy

I’ve been meaning to work with James Ford for a while now, but our schedules have never aligned and he is often out of the country. But last week I had the pleasure of having him come into the studio for a test shoot. I’ve worked with Jimmy’s sister Peggy a few times, and we had spoken via social media, but it was great to finally be able to meet in the flesh.

I could tell right from the beginning that Jimmy was a seasoned professional. He knew his poses, had great expressions, and got straight into it without needing to warm up at all. The frame above on the right was literally the second frame I took all day.

I got all of my garments from H&M this time, so we had a few different outfits to work with. I find it hard to source quirky, interesting pieces for males, as there seems to be a lot less available (on the mainstream market) than for females. Luckily Jimmy’s strong expressions and great posing easily carried the frames. Because of this, the shoot was over really quickly. Thanks Jimmy for finally getting in front of my camera, and good luck in Asia!
