I can’t believe I’ve just got around to editing the images from this shoot with the wonderful Holly Alexander at Strangetown Studio from August 2019! But editing images from late summer, with some lovely afternoon sunshine, is exactly what’s needed on a day when my home town is facing yet more floods.
This was a really enjoyable grouo shoot in which we were able to utilise not only the studio (and its lighting) but also the corridors and lifts within the studio building and the streets nearby.
And here’s our merry little group on the day (excluding me, as I’m taking the photograph)…
I haven’t posted any of my boxing photography for a while so here’s a selection from the last “white collar” event, superbly organized as ever by Henrietta Street Gym at Pryzm Nightclub in Birmingham. White Collar Boxing events don’t come any more spectacular than these shows that I’ve been privileged to photograph for… erm… many years now.
This really is just a sample from the evening (I delivered over 650 images of this event) but hopefully it gives a flavour of the show.
If you’re interested in taking part in one of these shows, and perhaps raise some money for charity whilst learning a new skill and getting fit, get in touch with Henrietta Street Gym for superb training by top trainers and well-matched, safety-first bouts in superb surroundings.
Just to show it’s not all snazzy cars and beautiful models, here are a few images from a recent conference shoot. The theme was “Beyond Brexit” and luckily the participants were a bit more animated on the subject than I might have been. Good job I was just the photographer really.
If you read my previous post, you’ll have seen Dominic, the brother of this young man – Aaron. Aaron really only came along to support his (slightly more nervous) brother but proved to be extremely comfortable in front of the camera. All of these images were shot in my studio (Strangetown Studio) and in the rest of the Telsen building.
And finally, a shot of the two brothers together…
Sometimes, others’ loss is your gain. On this occasion, I’d booked lovely model Elena to pose for a short, fairly casual, studio lighting demonstration for two clients but despite having paid in advance, they failed to turn up. This meant that Elena and I could either call it a day and go home or make the most of the opportunity for a quick shoot in my studio and around the building. We went for the latter option and I was chuffed with some of the results. It was a cold wintry evening and I was in the mood for some noirish filmic images. Good job I took my camera!
