Evangeline Elizabeth

Full Blog : http://ideasandimages.co.uk/afternoon-evangeline-elizabeth-v-nsfw-erotica/ Evangeline Elizabeth invited me up to Gate 38 in Leicester. The location was aviation themed bar and pretty damn amazing. We thought that some lingerie / light erotica with a deep contrast black and white finish would look amazing.

Fashion Noir with Akari

A few months ago I felt like I needed something new in my photography, this shot was just that. In many ways this shoot was never going to be blogged, it was never really meant to be on the Ideas & Images website at all. This shoot was all about self learning and pushing my own limits as regards to nudity and shooting more explicit content. Akari was just amazing to work with and we ended up with some very powerful images. These images are in some way inspired by Steven Meisel's strong black and white portraits mixed with the more provocative nature of Newton (VNSFW) Full link here: http://wp.me/p59IM8-4bj

Peliroja

Over the years I have met so many amazing people yet my afternoon with Peliroja I think will remain with me for a long time. We had such a laugh and I think we created some amazing images. http://ideasandimages.co.uk/afternoon-peliroja-vnsfw-erotica/ http://purpleport.com/portfolio/peliroja/

Jammy Lou

Lingerie shoot with Masion Close & Something Wicked for Lingerie Insight Magazine. I got on the phone and a couple of hours later Masion Close and Something Wicked were happy and Fed-Ex’ing over some stunning garments for out shoot. Masion Close had sent some prototypes for their SS14 collection and Something Wicked had sent some classic garments from 2013.

Racheal Bowler

Thank you to Rachel for another amazing shoot and the above photo of me and the lighting set up that we used to create all the images in this blog – which is quite image heavy, you can also find the rest of the images here. http://ideasandimages.co.uk/another-afternoon-rachel-bowler-16-55mm/

Full Blog : http://ideasandimages.co.uk/afternoon-evangeline-elizabeth-v-nsfw-erotica/ Evangeline Elizabeth invited me up to Gate 38 in Leicester. The location was aviation themed bar and pretty damn amazing. We thought that some lingerie / light erotica with a deep contrast black and white finish would look amazing. Everything was lit with the 180cm softbox which had the grid fitted, then I used my Lee Filter kit to add the shadows and extra contrast. Styling was mix of both of us with most of the lingerie coming come Asos & Agent P.

Peliroja & Fuji X-Pro

Something Peliroja and I made up last night mid shoot. We thought it would be fun to play around with some 'concept' style images based around what Helmut Newton would of shot if he had been commissioned to create a Fuji advert.

Joanna

It was over a year ago that Joanna and I got in touch, it was over Facebook or some other social networking site. It was then almost a year later that we both found a moment to shoot. I was in London and just happened to have a cancelled date, so Joanna got in contact with the amazing Dorota Wójcik Sułkowska who was super kind to drop things at last moment and come and do the hair and make up for us. http://ideasandimages.co.uk/evening-joanna-mazur-portrait-lingerie-nsfw-2/

Lauren Brock

One of the many wonderful things about my job is the people I meet and places I go. Last week I had a late booking to shoot a lookbook for Tempest just outside outside of Cardiff which meant that I had drop in and shoot with Lauren too. As is would almost be rude not too. The last time Lauren and I shot we didn’t shoot any portraits.. why I am not sure but that gave us the perfect thing to do this time. Everything here was shot on the D800 & Sigma 105mm lens which is one of my go-to lenses for this type of portrait. Black and White photography is arguably one of impactful genres. There is just something about the simple tones that invites a viewer to begin to unravel and interpret the images. At the very bottom of the blog I have linked to a blog about the monochrome conversion used. http://ideasandimages.co.uk/lauren-brock-black-white-portraits/ For more info about this photo of my body of work - please follow this link :) http://ideasandimages.co.uk/updates-to-my-fashion-noir-portfolio-nsfw/

Nove Carangi

http://ideasandimages.co.uk/nove-carangi-3/ I think all images where taken on the Fuji X-T1 the new lens using the Lee Filter kit & classic chrome film modes aside from the end images which are marked as such. Post production was very simple just using colour adjustments using the LUT’s to modify the tones in conjunction with the Lee Filters and in camera settings. If you click the images it will take you to the Smugmug element of the site for the exif data on each shot. or more info about this photo of my body of work - please follow this link :) http://ideasandimages.co.uk/updates-to-my-fashion-noir-portfolio-nsfw/

Beffy G

After some what of a chaos led morning, we got shooting in the second function room at the Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath. Not the location we had planned and had to shoot far quicker than planned too as the room was in use for band later than day. We also pretty much shot nothing I had planned but was very happy with the images we got. http://ideasandimages.co.uk/an-afternoon-with-beffy-gilmore/ For more info about this photo of my body of work - please follow this link :) http://ideasandimages.co.uk/updates-to-my-fashion-noir-portfolio-nsfw/

A portrait of Georgina

http://ideasandimages.co.uk/an-afternoon-with-georgina-terrana/ This shoot was pretty much the first shoot where I had decided to try and get that fashion / noir look right from camera. Still some elements of beauty mixed with the shadow and single lighting. Most of these shots.. if I can remember were done with just a bare bulb set up too.

Jodi Larkn

There I was last Friday thinking to myself, gosh – I don’t have anything to shoot over the weekend ! A few moment later and Jodi and I had a shoot on…. As per normal we had nothing planned and by 10:23am Jodi was on my door step with a make up box and a beaming smile. I had just sent back all the samples, lingerie and bits I had from other shoots but I had the idea left over from shooting the towels with Joanna (click here for the shoot with Joanna Mazur NSFW) so, that’s just what we did, but with a few more giggles… http://ideasandimages.co.uk/another-afternoon-jodi-lakin-beauty-portraits/

Isabelle Koenig

From the very outset, this is one of my favorite shoots both artistically and technically. We had the super amazing Sian Lidgate (link) on hand and the very pretty Isabelle Koenig (link) modelling for us, pretty much the perfect team for any photographer. The aim was to create a small set of Metallic themed beauty shots. We shot a golden warm set of images then a colour moody blue image. We liked how they could sit next to each other and offset the story. We liked the idea that the golden image (above) looked like amour and reflected the Greek gods, where the darker blues reminded us of the underworld of Hades. As you will see as you scroll down, I did two edits of the the shot as we changed the make up a little bit.. I thought both looked great and wanted to show the different editing styles too. http://ideasandimages.co.uk/beauty-shoot-isabelle/
