This was a lovely experience to reconnect with Katy and for us to shoot together again. We have a mutual trust and respect that makes working together fun and I’m so lucky to have Katy as a friend too. It was an opportunity for Lisa to get a few shots of her latest creations and I further honed my latest lighting style. My next blog post will reveal where this high key look is going. I’ve shot that set using special glass too so stay tuned.

  1. Great pictures Damien, that sure is a nice background colour (sea foam) is that a painted wall or one of your gels?

  2. As always, I’m pulled right in.

    That first shot… like a swirling mix of Annie Lenox, Adam Ant and… Tinkerbell! (Katy’s one of my favorite of your models with her delicate pixie-like form)

  3. Incredible Damien!!! Fantastic images. Everything about the images is fantastic and the cherry on the cake for me is the fantastic colors. The blonde, black and green are brilliant!!

  4. Hi Sean,

    Thanks for your continued encouragement and eloquent comments. Katie is indeed a wonderful model. She is fabulous fun and a good friend too.

    Stay inspired. I’ll be back in Chicago soon. Chicago caught my imagination.

    Kind regards, Damien.

  5. Hi Lee,

    I am so glad you are gripped by the lure of photography. The passion that burns inside feeds the soul on every shoot. Thank for your kind words and I’m looking forward to seeing you at the Film Noir workshop and then in Fuerteventura.

    What a journey :)

    Stay inspired, Damien.
