1940′s Ava ~ with Jess Sage

These 12 pictures are part of a creative photoshoot event hosted by stylist Sue Fyfe Williams at Clifton Hill House in Bristol. My role at the shoot was to lead the photography team and be on hand to light each scene.

I broke up the light from the Lupolux LED 100 on full flood by shining it through a plastic palm tree that I had bought online last year. I’ve attached my palm tree to a lighting stand for ease of positioning.

  1. Haha, thanks for your kind comment Lee. I thought you already had an X-T1. Have a word with Kevin Mullins about the X-T1, he’s a documentalist too :) What’s stopping you lad? That car shot is in demand as a print.

  2. Great set Damien, love all the car shots you’re definitely on to something here, hope to see more!

  3. Hi Damien the large image of the model looking through the car window is absolutely stunning, it’s one of my favourites
