Closer to Paddy Mitchell

The amaze Paddy Mitchell at Select captured for Boys by Girls book "Closer". I shot Paddy at his home just outside London and also did captures of him at his local Rugby club. Hot rugby outfit alert! An absolute star to work with, plus it was one of those rare warm autumn days where we felt it was summer again. For more about Paddy from the book find relevant links below.

Tom Norkett in "Cinematic Me"

I love working with young Mr Norkett. This time we explored a bti of a cinematic vibe, with some colourful styling from Laura Matellis. Dean Andrews on grooming. Having shot Tom a gezillion times before, and with his effortless ways in front of the camera, this was a very enjoyable shoot! Chicken fillet burger included. Safe.

"Silent Night"

Exclusively for the festive period I wanted to shoot an editorial for Boys by Girls that showed the peaceful and calm time I always enjoy Christmas to be. Matthew Bell (Elite) has quickly become one of my new muses, and was the perfect model for this story. He immediately got the concept and brought so much to this story in addition to the thoughts I already had on what I wanted to capture.

Unfazed by the dirty floor he had to work on, Matthew gave me all kinds of calm, pieceful and silent, and created this beautiful series of images that I hope others are as happy as me to look at on this Christmas Day.

A very Happy Christmas to you all, and I hope you have a wonderful holiday period!

Sebastian Sauve for "Closer"

The one and only Mr Sauve who I shot for our second Boys by Girls book, Closer! Like wow... a little bit. And he is as amazing as they say btw. His 8 pages in "Closer" shows images of Seb in his home town, where he showed me his town and little favorite spots. The book is also full of Sebastian stories, which you know will be entertaining. This amaze model is a reason to get the book alone, along with the other 16 boys in it of course.

Mateus on film

After my Boys by Girls editorial with Mateus (Request), I just had to put together this video I captured of him during the shoot as he was just so cool. You'll see why when watching it :)

He has this incredible sexy spirit, that makes you giggle and is so chilled in front of the camera that you're bound to catch something beautiful, charming and a bit different. I recommend you watch this video every time you want to get in a good mood.

Pavel Baranov for "Closer"

Another one of my dudes for the second helping of Boys by Girls books, Mr Pavel Baranov at Select. Wonderfully charming and stunningly beautiful, this boy also sees the world a little different than the rest of us, and likes to question why things are the way they are and why we do the things we do. I could easily have forgotten to actually do any photos, and just get drawn into conversation with this one.

Click the image below for more previews from his 6 page story in the book. To get a print copy, you can do so here.

Mateus Lages at Request

I have a lot of adoration for Mateus at Request after my shoot with him. Actually even after my casting, where he sat on the sofa as there were no troubles in the world and charmed me with his smile and giggle. I could tell he was one of those models who were going to make it an interesting shoot and give me a lot. I was right! So creative a little joy, I was a happy bunny after my shoot with him. Styling by Kita Updike. Grooming by Joey Oso.

Shot in Central Park, New York, on a rather rainy day. Deffo a fave shot to remember. If you click on the image below, you'll get to the editorial "Never Follow" named after one of Mateus' tattoos, where he also contributed to his own editorial with some of his artwork. Very inspiring model, and one that I will hunt down to shoot again and do some sort of exciting collaboration.

Casting: Matthew at Nevs

Very much feeling this beautiful new face at Nevs who walked in my door the other day! I'm feeling drawn to his hair and lips and feel I need to capture him properly next year. Lovely and polite as well. And how did his hair stay this good after being under his cycle helmet?! See a few more casting snaps by clicking the image below.
