This is just AWESOME! This was a very very special shoot with so many opportunities in Monmouth town centre of all places!

I love the emotion in this image … It was taken shortly after all the flood water had started to subside in early February. (yeh, I know – I’m only blogging it now which shows how busy I am!).

With many book shoots we have actually really struggled to choose the one, defining image to include in the book. This shoot was the most difficult and was in the end, referred to my facebook followers for their opinion!

Chloe can only be described as a bit of a ‘TomBoy’ which made her book photo shoot even more special because she brought with her a scooter that emits sparks when it is slowed with the brake! The graffiti backdrop to this image is just amazing and sets the scene for a very urban portrait full of colour and movement.

We had an overcast and drizzly day which meant I got wet rolling around on the floor of the tunnel (part of the O/S Welsh coastal walk). We used two artifical lighting sources to capture this shot which was almost in complete darkness due to the weather and time of year.

Congratulations to Nikki Bowen, My book project assistant for making her debut on this shoot!

Rain CAN be beautiful! At 4pm on a wet and blustery afternoon, I met up with Molly and her Mum at the wetlands centre. When Molly’s Mum said “ooh .. and there’s a lighthouse!” I practically jumped for joy!

Because of the rain and overcast clouds the light was very soft and beautiful. The rain had given a lushness to the grasses and flowers. We are loving the lighthouse and the signpost – giving a sea & land grounding to the image. Molly is a born model! So happy and bouyant – even in the drizzle!

This image has remained in colour to emphasize the soft blue/greys of the sky and the umbrella.

A beautiful summers day at the Kymin. At 9am on the morning of the shoot I decided to make a newspaper kite for use in making this image. The girls were stars! The light was very contrasty but with cloud patterns in the sky I decided to take the opportunity of silhouetting the trio against the skyline.

The resulting image has stolen my heart! I have chosen a ‘chocolate’ treatment of the image for that nostalgic feel… this is my version of sepia, but without the yellow. Very rich in tone and much more contemporary than traditional sepia.
