1950's Style Fashion Shoot in Bristol

Last Sunday I had the enormous pleasure of going to Bristol to meet up with Marie Man for a 1950's style fashion shoot that she had arranged.

I love meeting up with other photographers for Tweet-ups and Shoot Swaps and this was an excellent one as it was quite small. Marie had also invited Andrew Gosling, Kristy Field, Alex Beckett and Eddy Gammon.

Marie had arranged for model Siobhan Marie to come along and model some 1950's style dresses. 

The first dress, the red/pink one, was designed by Marie's friend Amy Simpson. The fur coat was supplied by Kristy Field.
I first met Marie in London last year at a shoot swap organised by Alex Beadon and jumped at the chance to work with her again, especially in Bristol.

The location Marie had chosen was pretty cool. It was a couple of derelict buildings in the middle of a roundabout. Unfortunately, we couldn't get into them (despite my best efforts being thwarted by a passing Police car!), so we used the run-down exterior as a back drop.

I really love how these came out. I hope you do too. Enjoy!

This second dress, coat and accessories were supplied by Clifton Vintage Boutique (open Wed to Sat)
(Clifton Arcade, Boyces Avenue, Clifton Village, Bristol

Thank you all so much for reading (if you've made it this far!), I would love to hear your thoughts on the shoot. 

A final thank you to Marie for arranging the shoot and to the other photographers I met. I hope to see you all again soon.

Take care,

Happy New Year and Some Spooky Fog...

Just a quick first update of 2011 because I wanted to share this shot with you.
We had some serious fog in Bournemouth just after Christmas & I shot this one evening. I quite like it, hope you do too.
I've got some really exciting things planned for 2011, so I'm really looking forward to this year. I hope you all had a really good Christmas and a very Merry New Year and that 2011 is a really good year for everyone.
