You can tell how long my backlog of images is when I say that all of my award winning images are over a year old. So as I work through my backlog you will start seeing a lot of different models appear, and hopefully some different styles of images. I am also going to try to improve and broaden my post-processing, so there may be some slightly different images posted now and again.
I shot with a model recently, and she was so enthusiastic during the shoot and afterwards that I just had to work on the images we produced, the model was the extraordinary Kayleigh Lush, and she’s very kindly put some of our images on her Purestorm profile. She has been modelling for 3 years, but I only found out about her when she put one of my images on one of her ModelMayhem lists. I am extremely grateful that she went to the trouble to find me, a photographer with similar creative interests, and subtly made me aware of her. My only gripe was why did she take so long :)
Anyway she is tall, slim, has a super figure for art-nude, and if that wasn’t enough she is a dancer so can produce some amazing poses, but you could probably have worked all of that out by looking at some of our images:
I should mention that the outfit in the first image was made by Kayleigh from pieces of material she had, and she only finished sewing it the evening before. We produced many other great images with it, and with hindsight I wish we had spent more of the session shooting with it. Still there’s always next time, and I have no doubt we will be working together again in 2012. I have also seen some superb outdoor shots of Kayleigh by other photographers, and I can’t wait for the weather to improve so we can work outdoors as well.
Just looking through the images I have posted I noticed something strange, I’ve started using clothes ;)
I am more well known for my nude images, maybe this is the start of something new?
Thanks to Rob Southall for letting us use his studio, which is one of the few with the height needed for a tall dancer, and a huge thank you to Kayleigh for coming all the way up to Birmingham and working with me. Till the next time :D
