Growl & Grandeur Summer 2012 Shoot
In March I had the pleasure of photographing Growl & Grandeur’s Spring/Summer 2012 range. The Growl team secured a location deep in the heart of East London — the F block roof of the old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane. An absolutely stunning spot with a pretty unique 360º backdrop of the London skyline & enough urban architecture, pipes, steel & brickwork to keep any photographer happy for a months worth of shoots. On top of the rad location I also got to shoot Font covergirl Mellisa Clarke & Fuel Girl Charlotte Moran — fuck yes!
Tokyo Shoot Two
With a new outfit & new location in Tokyo I wanted to create a shot with a completely different feel to the previous — something that was more appropriate to the classy new look. I took advantage of the large amount of ambient light from the skylight above & two chandeliers behind. I then added a single strobe to the left side in a softbox which added depth to the model & a little separation from the background.
Tokyo Shoot One
Last Saturday I headed to Tokyo to do a shoot for a friend, & by a shoot I mean four. This is the first of the four. Unfortunately our original model let us down & we had to find a back up model at very short notice. Still manage to get some good shots out of the day. This first set up needed to be super dramatic so I had 2 softboxes on the left, one high one low, & a light behind on to some very cool skull wallpaper. You probably worked it out but the image on the right has been mirrored for the diptych composition.
Droplet Series 2 Launch
Yesterday me and the crew made the 3 hour drive south to the fair city of Bristol for the launch of the 2nd series of the Jam Factory & Crazy Label Droplets. It was a really awesome day, Gav let me get in early to take some shots of the customs, the quality of work was unbelievable! There is no way I could pick a favourite! I even did a few portrait shots with the man him self & the GIANT droplet.
