For the past few years, once the worst of the frost has gone and our week of British summertime looked like it might be imminent, I’ve organised a “Nude In The Landscape” workshop at my friend’s beautiful riverside smallholding in rural Warwickshire. Even the rain hasn’t been able to spoil these lovely art nude photo-shoots.
And I’ve done it again. This year’s event takes place on Sunday 25th June starting at 10:30am and I’m delighted to announce that the model on this occasion will be the stunning Cally, a wonderful model who has previously featured in other location art nude events for me.
Here are a couple of images from the last event featuring the superb Rosa Brighid to give you an idea of the setting…
Looking through old hard drives for individual images for a client is a tedious business but occasionally leads to rediscovery of images you’d almost forgotten. In this case, the lovely Hannah was photographed as part of one of my “Portfolio Booster” courses. The original image was very pleasant as it was but Hannah’s very “classical” look inspired me to re-edit it with a more “painterly” look.
And once I’d found one, I was on a roll and couldn’t resist doing a second along the same lines…
Even during some involuntary free time over the Easter period, I can’t resist playing with various editing software. This is how the following images of the amazing Tanya Atherton came about. I like them, anyway.
Tanya Atherton is a force of nature. I was exhausted just watching her rapidly go through her repertoire of several million poses during the FOTO-CLUB “Special Studio Evening“. I don’t anyone would suggest you don’t get value for money with Tanya – she’s a photographer’s dream! Whether working at the wall, on the floor, or using the paper backgrounds, she was unbelievably creative, utilising every item of clothing and every inch of her body to provide a seemingly infinite range of looks.
We’ve booked some amazing models for the “Special Studio Evenings” (including Amber Tutton, Ivory Flame, Stephanie Dubois, Salleh Sparrow, Valis Volkova, Natalia Fox etc) and Tanya certainly earned her place among them. A great fun shoot.
Here are a few of my own images of the fabulous Rosa Brighid that I took at the “Nude In The Urban Landscape” shoot that I organised a week or so. The location is actually the same space that I used a couple of years ago for a similar event.
I’ll post more soon…
