Sabrina Diva in the UK – Promo Shoot

Sabrina Diva came over to the UK for a short holiday and during this time she arranged to have a shoot with me so that she could take them back with her to Jamaica for any and all promotional use.

Sabrina had the perfect look and feel of what she wanted to achieve for this shoot and coupled with my knowledge of the area I knew exactly where we could do this shoot.  I chose a local park and besieged by a torrent of on lookers I began to setup the shoot.

I used a couple of strobe softboxes and a third light to use as a hair light.  The sun was strong and in the west which added another hair light setup.  My camera setup was simple and I stuck to using my 70-200mm IS L Lens on my Canon 5DMK3.

I truly enjoyed this shoot along with a constant stream of her new track playing in the background and my kid riding his bike and wanting to get into the shot with his Aunt lol.

Anyway here are the photos from that very session.  Don’t forget to comment, rate, share or tweet.

Headshot Session with Actor Mike Fedee

I had an impromptu headshot session this morning in my garden…yes my garden.  It was a very cool setup.  I had a sheet of ply wood living in my shed that I decided to paint white on one side (propped this up on my garden table and clamped it to my cherry tree).  Set up a two light strobe setup, one to illuminate the backboard and the other as key light, my secret third light was the sun coming in on his left.  A Tri-flector to balance out the shadows under his chin and all shot with my new Canon 5DMK 3 with the 70-200mm lens shot at 200mm for ultimate compression, my aperture was between f6-f7.1.

Mike Fedee (facebook & Model-Mayhem) is a full time actor, he came all the way from France to spend 10 days in the UK and found his way to my part of london to do this shoot. This guy was brilliant to work with, he knows exactly what he wants and this came across in the shoot. I had such a great time with this guy and really hope he continues to strive well in his career.

Below are the pictures from this shoot as well as the setup pictures, enjoy.

Whitney Birthday Portrait Session

In May of 2011 it was Whitney’s birthday.  Her mother contacted me to do a photo shoot for her birthday present with her best friend.  It was an enjoyable day going to different locations even seeing the singer Leona Lewis house hunting.  This was her first time doing a shoot of this nature and it took a little coaching to get her in the mood and feeling relaxed.  In the end she got these amazing shots, here are my favorites form the day.
