Client Shoot: Lux Tenebrae

The life of a photographer is never dull, I'm always getting emails from new and interesting clients. Lux Tenebrae recently came back for their 2nd catalogue shoot as they have a new range of hand made "Python Skin" corsets. 

Knowing little about the manufacture of corsets/garments I imagine getting a sheet of snakeskin to work with a rather interesting and challenging task. However the made to measure Medusa Python Skin underbust corset was so beautifully made and finished, I was truly taken back by the details of the corset and the skills that would be needed to make such an item.

If you want to get in touch with Lux about these corsets, check out the item page on their online shop.

Here are a few "Poladroid" shots of some of the other catalogue shots we also did on the day.

UUnique - iPhone Case/iPad Case Campaign feat in British Vogue (March Issue)

At the end of last year one of my client shoots was a campaign for UUnique, for their luxury brand of iPhone and iPad accessories. It was shot at Premier Park studios in North West London.

I've have not seen that many of the end results, as a lot of the retouching work  being done were all graphical based elements by the UUnique graphics design team; but I've recently found a few pieces from the shoot, and there was also a feature in the March 2012 issue of British Vogue.

Who would be your celebrity top ten to photograph?

I've seen a lot of blogs on this topic recently and then someone recently asked me this during an interview, so who would be your Celebrity top ten to photograph and why? What draws you to these people? I seem to have gone for a mix of actors & actresses, sports personalities, and musicians.

I think mine would be the following (In no particular order).

Ray Winstone - I've always been a big fan of Ray Winstone, he's a real character and someone I'd love to take portraits of in his stereotypical east end gangster vibe. He's a man full of charisma and someone able to create iconic imagery.


Johnny Depp - Definitely one for being able to portray a character, would I want Captain Jack Sparrow? I don't know; but I know that he's got one of those faces/gazes that would pull a viewer into a photograph, leaving them with a hundred questions....


Liv Tyler - She was one of my school kid crushes, ever since I saw her in Stealing Beauty in the late 90's.I think that's where my love of brunettes began. I think shooting Liv in a floaty, full length sheer white gown in a decadent location, would be my dream...

David Beckham - It goes without saying that most people in the world know of David, regardless of if they enjoy sport. He's a real character and I think has a look/face that has got better with age. After seeing his new black and white TV adverts I'd love to shoot him in moody black and white, stripped back styling, and slicked back hair.

Alana Blanchard - Another sports personality, Alana spends most of her life in the ocean and is the cool beach girl. She's an American professional surfer, and at such a young age is already known as one of the female best. I'm sure a shoot with her would involve wet hair and the ocean..#win

Megan Fox - It seems this lady is always in the line-ups to 'most beautiful' and I'm not one to disagree with that, I definitely think she's beautiful. I'm totally drawn to brunette females when it comes to taking photos. There's something about long, dark hair that cannot be beaten... I'd love to shoot a lingerie campaign with Megan.

Ray Charles (RIP) - It's obviously impossible for this to happen, but I'd have loved to have taken his photograph, sat at a piano in a smoke filled bar, his sunglasses and beaming smile... Possibly just just simple Polaroid's, I think a man with this much character needs no gimmicks in a photo, just stripped back, simpleness.


Eva Green - I first noticed Eva Green after seeing "The Dreamers" and anyone that has seen that film knows she spends the best part of it cavorting in the nude. I know she's another brunette, but with her love for smoking on shoots, I think a dark film noir vibe shoot with Eva would be lead to beautiful results, or some mysterious nude smoking shots.

Rihanna -I think Rihanna has been a secret crush of mine for a while now, I've no idea why, but there's something about her personality that just makes her captivating. I first noticed her after her Vogue Italia spread, which showed she's capable of creating amazing editorial images. I'd have her in nothing but some Noritaka Tatehana heels.

Dallas Green (City and Colour / Alexisonfire) - This man has one of the most amazing and moving voices I think I've ever heard. I could listen to his live stuff for the rest of my life and die a happy man. Shooting him doing a live set in some dusty American bar would be amazing.

and if I had to choose one model, it would be Natasha Polevshchikova (aka Natasha Poly). - Her face is well known for editorials and advertising campaigns. She's tall and slender, and has a chameleon like ability to transform herself, making her one versatile model. (not to mention she looks good nude).
