Coastal Cities

I have come to love the Coastal Cities boys for their coolness, music and general British wit. It was so much fun to work with them again, this time to promote their single "Summer Reign".

Check out their website for more Coastal Cities goodness.

Ava

I've been wanting to work with more girls for a while, so when Ava walked into my world I was excited to work with her. I wanted to take the approach of shooting her in her home environment, like I usually do with the boys, to see what I could create.

Below are a couple of teasers (you can see more on my website).

Fionn for Boys by Girls issue 5 "Lessons"

Fionn at Nevs Models is one of those magic ones, who connects with a story and performs it. I love that.

I photographed Fionn for the latest Boys by Girls issue "Lessons". His parents made me and my team lunch. And tea. It was lovely. Fionn was lovely. David dressed him in beautiful clothes and David did wonders with his hair. All around favourite things on an amazing day.

Thibaut for Boys by Girls

The beautiful Thibaut is French but based in Belgium, and travelled to London to shoot with me for Boys by Girls Digital. Such an artful, young soul, he was a delight to work with and described that he liked to "use his body to create art". And so he did.

55DSL for Boys by Girls

One of the funnest stories I photographed this summer was for issue 5 of Boys by Girls Magazine, with Joshua and Lauren. I had wanted to shoot more girls, so being able to bring in Lauren on this story with Joshua was super fun. We had the best day with the team in lovely weather in a great location, and got to play with all things relationship and great clothes from 55DSL.

Matthew Bell for Boys by Girls issue 5 "Lessons"

Matthew Bell (Elite Models London) was a no brainer for the cover story of issue 5 of Boys by Girl Magazine. To see a boy grow into the breathtaking high end model he has become has been so amazing, and I wanted to show his growth in his story "Matthew 2.0" for the least issue "Lessons".

I can never express the beauty of Matthew Bell enough, but having him features in this 10-page spread + cover is a good start. Thumbs up Mr. Bell for your awesomeness.

Union J for Boys by Girls Magazine

Working with the charming and talented Union J boys was such a treat! It's definitely worth buying the latest issue of Boys by Girls Magazine to check out the full 8 page feature I shot with them, and not to mentioned their lovely cover of course.

The boys had such a good energy on the day, and brought spark, humour and just the right amount of oddness to make it interesting. I have a lot of love for Union J.

Supa Boys for Volt Magazine

Working with the wonderful Way Perry for the first time, we embarked on this editorial with 10 top boys from Supa Model Management. With my love for capturing boys softly and naturally in a home environment, and Way's fashion expertise, the boys of Supa helped us create this story for issue 14 of Volt Magazine.

Top boys including Arthur Gosse, Yannick Abrath, Travis Smith, Tom Barker, Anders Hayward, Elliot Vulliod and more, this was such an amazing story to work on!

Matthew Jackman on a wooden floor

Sometimes you meet a model that is just that little bit extra inspiring, and Matthew Jackman at Established Models is one of those models. From Canada, he straight away hit me with his quirkiness, self made fashion accessories and home made tattoos. His softness which he was able to portray in his images effortlessly, whilst at the same time showing his cool attitude, was something I was drawn to.

Shot with no styling, no grooming, on an old attic wooden floor, that was all we needed.

Sundown Music Festival

Recently I went with Next Models London to the Sundown Music Festival in Norfolk, checking out the festival vibes and documenting their scouting team. Fun!

So much atmosphere as we listened to great music coming from the main stage for the two days I was there, and so much vibe. Being one of the last lovely summer weekends, this was such an experience.

Jacob at New York Models

British Jacob at New York Models, has lived in the US for quite a few years. He still dressed British and has kept his charming accent and sense of humour. This makes American girls flock around him. So I heard, and am not surprised.

In this portrait series, I capture the beauty that is Jacob, putting the focus on all his strong features and letting his personality shine through.

Coastal Cities

I adore the guys in Coastal Cities. Not only are they one of the coolest up and coming British Band, but they are such lovely and quirky guys. They look super cool, and you can't take a bad picture of them. A photographer's dream.

I met them the first time when I photographed them for Boys by Girls, where they invited me to capture them during rehearsal and outside their studio. Grooming by Stephen Hamilton.

Travis Smith in Agi & Sam for Topman

Hawaiian Travis Smith at Supa Models is one cool guy. I adore his gentle personality and quiet intellect, as much as his obvious beauty.

Dressing him in items from the recent Agi & Sam and Topman collaboration, seemed like the perfect thing to do. I loved playing with the colour tones for this series, and bringing in some playful elements perfectly suited to the playfulness of Agi & Sam as well as Topman.

I am now on Instagram

About time, but I finally got instagram. How did I not realise before I can send this from my iPad?

Now I can Instagram all the useless stuff I didn't share before. How awesome. But I guess it fills in the gaps on what I do in-between the moments of when my photographic work is done, so as the rest of the world I am now addicted to that.

Graeme for Boys by Girls

Graeme Metz is easily one of my favorite boys I have worked with so far this year. With a magic approach to how he moves in front of the lense, and the ability to interpret what I wanted, he goes straight to the top of my model-faves.

This means I have already secured a second shoot with him for a cool editorial to be released soon. Second time around we got to explore even more, as we created what I can only call art. Photography is art. Yes. And this boy knows how to do it.

Palmer Harding ss14 Campaign Lookbook on Style.com

It was a pretty awesome day when I visited London Collections: Men back in June to view a big screen preview of my film for the Palmer//Harding SS14 Collection! Hosted in the centre of all things LCM, seeing your fashion video on a big screen is pretty damn awesome.

Hosted by the lovely designer duo themselves, I sat down with Jon Dartnell at Nevs who we did the video bit, and took in the awesomeness of our hard work together. It was also lovely to run into Sophia again, who did a lovely piece for style.com on the collection.

When models turn family - Justanorm

There is something I admire about all the boys part of model collective Justanorm; their friendship, support of each other and sense of being family. Everyone would be lucky to have friends like that, and I so much enjoyed being invited to spend an evening with this lovely (and very handsome) bunch of guys. I captured them hanging out together and generally just being mates.

The shoot happened on Brick Lane where the guys often hang out after shoots and castings, and they even took me to their favourite hang out spots.
