There are a number of models I have worked with in the past, who I only fully appreciated after they stopped modelling, and who I now wish I had worked with more at the time.
One of these is the superb Kayleigh Lush, I did produce a number of great images with her, including my extremely successful En Pointe, which is one of my most successful images and which you can see in this post.
I’ve recently edited a number of new images from our shoots, all of them coincidentally taken on joint shoots with some of the many lady photographers I often shoot with. I often find I am more creative on these shoots, as women do tend to bring the best out of me and the shoots are usually very collaborative.
The first two were taken on shoots with my good friend and talented photographer Janet Haines, when she was based in the UK. This one was taken in an abandoned building the shadow looked excellent, and so coupled with some very careful positioning of Kayleigh we got this shot that I really adore.
While this one was taken on an ancient stone monument, with Kayleigh producing a super dance pose in the beautiful evening light.
The next two were taken on a shoot with another good friend and great photographer Francisca Da Silva. The first taken next to one of the walls of her house, you are not supposed to take pictures in bright overhead sunlight, but I think this one worked very well.
And this one was taken at one of Francisca’s friend’s house, I think the doors provide a great lead in to her producing a wonderful pose.
So while I didn’t quite manage the number of shoots with Kayleigh that I would have wished, we still got quite a few great images, and I’m sure there are many more to come from these shoots. Many thanks to Kayleigh, as well as my fellow photographers Janet and Francisca.
