Roman & Sam gets suited up for Boys by Girls

I loved shooting this story for Boys by Girls, working with stylist Rachel Gold. We wanted to do a take on how to dress up, but still look cool trendy. With the help of gorgeous Models 1 boys Roman Kemp and Sam Harwood, we got a fabulous story to share.

Another in the New Face series for Boys by Girls. This time with Lithuanian model Dovydas at D1.

I adore this image in particular as Dovydas was more than happy to go to a different level as he interpreted by slightly odd instructions letting the light play with him. Adore, adore, adore.

A1 "Rediscovered" Album Sleeve

Following my blog about shooting the album cover for the latest a1 album "Rediscovered",I wanted to share a couple more images from the album sleeve. As my photographic journey started in music, I very much enjoy going back to that in between the fashion work I do.

Ben, Mark and Christian are such lovely guys to work with, so that always adds to the pleasure of working with musicians. I love how the theme of this album really reflects the boys journey as a band and people. They always put themselves into their music and let's their fan base be part of it, and I love how they've managed to reinvent themselves whilst keeping true to who they are. Their wonderful personalities colours also this album with great impact. I particularly enjoyed getting to play with some of Mark's memorabilia to create some of the album sleeve pages. I don't have an example of that to show you atm, but another reason to buy the album. I especially had fun placing Mark's childhood figurines in random places.

Their new album 'Rediscovered' is out in Norway now, which you can buy on iTunes, Platekompaniet or iTunes:  If you live outside Norway, you can order the CD from Tigernet.

Me, a photographer.

Ok so I'm now officially a full time photographer.
Scary stuff. But more exciting than anything else!

Being able to follow your dream is a privilege,
so I am excited to start this chapter.

Just wanted to put that on black and white really
for my own eyes to see and
to properly register it in my brain.

Video: Matthew Bell for "A Place Called Youth"

In my first video with Matthew Bell (Elite Models London) he brought just the right amount of quirky (including a toy panda and rug from Japan) for this "The 4th Floor" video. In beautiful designs from Palmer Harding, Zara, Topman and Balain, styled by Lindsey Cash, he worked with me to create this floaty, dreamy feel, just in line with the quiet beauty I wanted to convey in this feature. Grooming by Stephen Hamilton.

Note that plinky, plonky music is Matthew's choice, and was perfect to fit the elements here.

This Boys by Girls issue is available to buy here.

Charlie Mills for Boys by Girls

I tend to need to explore models more than once if I find a model I enjoy shooting that little extra bit. Shooting someone is like reading the first chapter of a book. If you like the first chapter, you're gonna want to know what happens next. So I find myself exploring more chapters to get the full story.

This was my second time shooting Charlie Mills at Premier Models for Boys by Girls. The first time I captured his good boy side, and I knew he also had a cool and more sexy side to him that I was curious about.

There is one thing that I'm particularly excited about at the moment, and that is the updated release of Boys by Girls volume 4, "A Place Called Youth".
