Inspired 04 : Big Cats


Fourth installment from my set of blog posts showcasing some inspiring images I've found over the last week. 
This weeks theme is big cats! I've done a lot of wildlife photographs lately so wanted to showcase some wonderful wildlife images I've found from other people. 

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do and that they can provide you with inspiration too

Please show the artists some love if you get a minute
Enjoy

It was too hard to choose just one image from Eltasia so here is a selection of photos from her gallery. She is consistently producing fantastic images of wild animals and anyone who has taken photographs at a zoo knows just how hard it can be to capture a moment. Kudos to Eltasia for mastering this skill!

Inspired 03 : Painted

Third installment of my new set of blog posts showcasing some inspiring images I've found over the last week. Todays theme is Painted. I love the make-up can be so versatile and used in so many different ways. 
I'm planning a new shoot, which will involved some elaborate makeup so I've been hunting for inspirational images such as these.

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do and hopefully they can provide you with some inspiration too

Please show the artists some love if you get a minute

Recent shoots- Look books, tests and agency models!

May 2011 Fashion Tests - Elke Bonner @ Bookings

This shoot was with model Elke Bonner @ Bookings model agency. It was styled by Bonnie Carr, who also designed these lovely outfits. Having good quality clothes to work with makes such a big difference and Elke posed wonderfully in Bonnie's clothes. The makeup artist was Lesley Vye, who did a great job of creating a natural, low key look.

As we know, fashion shots are all about the clothes - I know a lot of people try to style shoots themselves but honestly having someone on the shoot that knows about the clothes; how they move, how the material falls and how the outfits should best be worn makes a huge difference and I hope to work with stylists a lot more often!

We were blessed with good weather and able to shoot in Lesley's friends garden. The feel for the shoot was girly, feminine and clean to compliment the floral patterns on the clothing and the pretty garden made the perfect setting for this.


Here are some of the final images from the shoot 
(NB: the colours are much better quality on the versions on my site!)
