Almost a year had passed since we last worked together on location in Derbyshire and this, our third collaboration, essentially carried on from where we left off, only this time we started on the crags of Curbar before ending our shoot at Grindleford. Beginning with art nude, graduating to archery and throwing in the Grim Reaper for good measure was the nature of the shoot and the weather was well and truly with us. The hazy morning sun served to enhance the tones of Scarlot’s to-die-for physique while highlighting her wig and blessing her with a halo of flame. It was a glorious morning spent capturing beautiful images of a beautiful model wearing a stunning white dress. Little did I know that our next shoot would be only ten days hence.
This was only the second time we had met, but our first shoot together. A brief chat as a result of a chance encounter at a studio paved the way for the beautiful home shoot that was to follow. We shot in available light in Honour’s boudoir, on the landing, in the lounge and in her conservatory where the light was bright, but diffuse and produced a soft, natural tone to her skin. We couldn’t let the session go without a few tried and trusted props, so no apology for using the ‘mask and machete’ approach to boudoir photography infused with Honour’s very own posing style. The two hours was altogether too short, but the results were an eclectic blend of the erotic and the sinister. Until the next time…..
This was our third collaboration and being a maternity shoot made the occasion rather special. Ambient light subtly accentuated Natalia’s graceful maternal curves and as a blissful two hours floated gently by we captured beauty blessed by seven and a half months.
We last worked together on a studio shoot in early 2013, but it was worth the wait. We decided to get together for an outdoor shoot in the picturesque county of Derbyshire one sunny morning in early July. Opting for a three hour morning shoot we took in a woodland area, two rocky locations and finished with a brief lakeside shoot around noon. Blessed with natural beauty, Miss Rose’s pale, flawless skin contrasted starkly with the textures of rocks and trees while the weather provided a bright and sunny backdrop to our secluded locations. What we captured on that perfect Sunday morning was a series of beautiful art nude images in between sipping tea and chatting about art and Japan.

Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 240,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 10 days for that many people to see it.

Working with Joceline is always a creative and relaxed occasion and this, our fifth collaboration and our second at Barlow, was no exception. I had in mind a yellow skirt and a simple pony tail and as usual Joceline rose to the occasion as we shot against stone walls and a piano, while chatting about why she often hangs out with physicists! Shifting in to the cove we explored various poses with a large, red ball and the final frames were of Joceline throwing her skirt every which way. What more can you ask from such a professional model?
This shoot was another memorable performance by model Amy Rose at the Barlow Studio in Chesterfield. We ventured outside the comfort zone of the infinity cove for part of the time and Amy worked with a white upright piano while wearing strong primary colours against a stone wall backdrop. Amy’s advice on camera settings proved invaluable and we were more than chuffed with the quality of our images. As before, Amy was at her professional best on this our fourth collaboration.
