Creative portraiture. I love it.

There’s a creative outlet there and it’s a goldmine of opportunity to create special images. This year I joined the hugely popular Purpleport networking site for models, photographers, make-up artists, stylists etc in order to find new subjects, learn new styles, techniques and just to challenge myself really.

What great experiences have followed! First there was a shoot planned with a local model, who couldn’t find a chaperone for the day so cancelled on me. That was a downer, but fortunately the nature of Purpleport meant I could put up a casting call and get a new model at very short notice! And so I got to shoot the lovely Eleanor in the now demolished old sports centre grounds in Huddersfiled. Windy day, rain, softbox. great combination….broke a flash, umbrella, softbox and hotshoe mount in one unfortunate second! But I loved the pictures!

Since then I have enjoyed the peaceful and warm conditions of Brighouse based Mainshoot Studio owned by Ian Marshall. Coffee on tap, great models hired and fellow photographers sharing ideas and techniques. Here I have learnt a little bit more about lighting effects and how to interact with a model. There’s a world of difference between shooting a friend who you have to direct, and shooting an experienced model who changes pose with every click!

I will add many more fashion/model portfolio images in the coming months, with my confidence and creative juices flowing, that itch just won’t go away!
