More photographs of the lovely Sorcha, all shot on film with natural daylight. A few here are experiments with liquid light, photographic emulsion in liquid form so that it can be painted onto different materials, these three are paper and cotton material.
You can read Sorcha's take on the shoot on her blog too.
(I have no idea why Blogger has changed the colouring on some of these and unfortunately can't find a way to fix it. To see all of these in true black and white please view them on my Flickr)

Yesterday I had an amazing photo shoot for Olympus Magazine and I think pretty much the whole team took photos of themselves with the birds of prey we had on set! Here are some of me by Chris Thompson, who also shot a brilliant behind the scenes video. This beautiful guy is Titan, who was one of five birds we worked with yesterday. There will be lots more from this shoot coming soon.

For DeVour Magazine, view online here. Model is the stunning Sorcha, make up & hair by Julie Flatman, dress by Sanctus and leather harness by Louise McKay.
I'd planned to shoot with Sorcha for a while, I love working with local people and thought she would make a great model for my 'Femme' project. Alongside this I suggested that we shot on location too if the weather was nice for us, as I always like making the most of a day with a team. I decided that I would try my hand at styling again and got some lovely pieces from Sanctus and Louise McKay.
The day was perfect for us, there was sunlight all through out the day which was a surprise in between all the rain we'd been having. This was perfect to shoot natural lighting in my home studio & then go out on location afterwards. Though I wasn't quite expecting that we'd all bundle into my car to go on location and two minutes down the road it broke down on us! We managed to get rescued and salvage the day (& I sorted out my car later on!). Due to the delay we arrived at the location later than expected but this meant we were there as the sun was setting and casting a beautiful light over this derelict church and graveyard.
