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!

Harley Visits The Studio

It’s not often that I photograph animals, but recently this very handsome pooch visited my studio for a portrait sitting (owner in tow, of course.) The aim was to capture some shots of Harley, for her owner to keep as a memento.

Harely was very excited to come in to the studio, but not so keen to go on the background paper.

Here are some of the shots that we captured. What a cute pup!

If you would like me to photograph your pup too, don’t hesitate to send me an email.
