This was a skills enhancement shoot with my friend and fellow pro photographer Brett Symes. Brett and I shoot together a couple of times a year and we always come away from our shoots with new ideas and a renewed passion for photography. I’ve never worked with assistant photographers but I often shoot alongside other pros like Julie my wife, Brett, Chris Hanley and Martin Hill. I get a real buzz when I’m sharing the creative process and the buzz is priceless. Here is a small selection of my shots from our shoot.
Photographer and event coordinator: Damien Lovegrove
Photographer and location manager: Brett Symes
Fashion designers: Miss Jones and Lisa Keating
Make up and hair: Viki Waghorn
Models: Katy McGee and Charlotte Roest Ellis
All the shots were taken on the Fujifilm X-Pro1 camera at ISO 1600 with the 18-55mm zoom lens wide open. I used my Gitzo Monopod, RRS ball head and L plate to support the camera. Shutter speeds ranged from 1/30th to 1/125th second and were selected in manual exposure mode.
