Idea's & Development

Still perusing the look.
Here's a few bits from recent shoots. The images with Nadia are part of my ongoing exploration of fuller forms, although this time I loosened up and played a bit.

I don't usually encourage my models to view the images as I'm shooting them. In fact I avoid this, but this time something amazing thing happened... She looked at the monitor and made some incredible judgments about her body. The shapes she disliked, the bits she liked, the stuff she would change. All very critical and precise. Here, I had someone confident enough to share there visual body openly with me but who appeared to be at odds with herself. It was fascinating.

These are the last images from me whilst at Studio Seventeen. I'm closing shop to concentrate on assisting and my own work.


Complexd Magazine - Beauty + Body : Issue 7

Some words and work in a recent publication, Complexd Magazine. An amazing online magazine developed by former LCF student Kered Clement that 'celebrating multicultural women of all shades, shapes and sizes'. It's bloody hard to write what it is i try and achieve with images of naked women but the gist laid out in the article is going in the correct direction.
