New for Twenty Two, Toucan Hill

New for Twenty Two, Toucan Hill – James & Catherine on the mirador at Toucan Hill – Some shots are simply lovely. This romantic shot of James & Catherine is one of them. I shot this during a nine day shoot for Toucan Hill, a house on Mustique that is available to rent. It was shot for their website but never used.

Recently, I have been archiving some historic files from previous shoots.
When doing this I am often distracted with images and shots that took me a while to work up. This shot is one of them.
It was part of a very large shoot for a Villa on the Island of Mustique. This frame is one of twelve that went on to become a stop motion animation of the confetti throw.

Looks like Spring

Looks like Spring

Last winter was the, longest I’ve ever experienced… and you may be feeling this too.

Spring is now here, and with lockdown, here in the UK, finally coming to an end I can get back to shooting some beautiful images. Meanwhile, here’s a lovely, previously unused image of Cody, taken in Richmond Park, London, UK. As usual, her easy way and relaxed pose looks effortless as always. We shot this on a warm summer day back in 2019. Whilst processing this image it dawned on me that it is a good example of why using a higher megapixel camera is preferable, if you are shooting portraits

Me & Cody Cataluffi are making the news again!!

Me & Cody Cataluffi are making the news again!!

Always a nice surprise when Alamy sell an image… Last time it was the Daily Mail. This time it’s the Sunday Times, here in the UK. Cody looking ripped, as she monsters her way up Broomfield Hill in Richmond Park, The quintessential blonde female runner, her blonde ponytail bobbing left to right. Pink crop top, bare arms with Garmin watch and guns pumping away!

Hang on in there! Spring is just around the corner…

Hang on in there! Spring is just around the corner…

Hang on in there! Spring is just around the corner… – Maybe time to read a book and have a coffee?

To all my friends and family, both here in the UK and around the world, Spring is nearly here. If you are still in lockdown, like we all are here in the UK, hang on in there! The nice lady from the NHS said that I’ll have to wait until the second injection before I can leap between tall buildings in a single bound! So, I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with the consolation that we will soon be able to have friends around to sit in the garden. I have cleaned the BBQ until it glows, and there are cold drinks in the fridge.

Meanwhile, here’s a new image of Cody from the garden sessions, taken in a time before the zombie apocalypse.
I can report that we are all well here, and so is Cody. Although we are not able to shoot together, we have been behaving very badly during lockdown, by listening to Trance sessions on Twitch…
I should know better, but I don’t care, so big up Ben Gold, XiJaro And Pitch, Armin Van Buuren & ASOT and PSYMILL, and big up AstraZeneca and the NHS!

after the shoot is done…

after the shoot is done…

After the shoot is done – When working on pro beauty shoots there is surprisingly little time to shoot images that you actually want to shoot. I often find that there’s a danger that everyone is “on point” at all times. I’m certainly on one, as are my team. The assistant on this shoot is brilliant. He is “Johnny On the Spot” with the reflectors and stands, the SD cards and the shot list. The make up artist is in and out, doing her thing, whilst the client is asking a million questions of the stylist and calling the magazine. I think she has more on her plate than I do!
It’s only at points of transition between shots, or right at the end of the shoot that I can sometimes snatch something that may please me, not the magazine or the client. This frame is such a shot.

Cody re-imagined – Why complicate a simple shot?

This is the second in a series of re-imagined beauty images of Cody Cataluffi from 2019

This is shot directly in the afternoon sun. You can see that the sun is top right, from the side, slightly behind the model. There is a half gold reflector, filling the shadows from the left. It’s set parallel to the model, so that it doesn’t “uplight” her.

How slow dare you go?

How slow dare you go?

How slow dare you go? – Shooting at slow shutter speeds is a risky business. After all, who wants blur in a digital image?
Well, back in the day, when I had hair, and I was a fashion assistant, lots of photographers would run a couple of rolls of film at slow speeds. The order of the day was that they would get the shot nailed first, and then, if time allowed, they would take a few risks with a slow shutter speed, or a shallow depth of field.
