A few weeks back I was asked if I would shoot a series of photos for Skagen Denmark. Skagen make really pretty watches and the brief that was given to me was nice and open and seeing as I have been wanting to do more considered photoshoots, I decided to dust my art director’s hat off and I set up a shoot with my good friend Leigh as the model and my talented friend Adi as the stylist.
I wanted all the photos in this series to feel effortless, but considered and I really wanted them to have a haunting feeling but in a good way. We spent a whole afternoon getting these photos just right and even though I had bruised knees afterwards and Leigh was literally bruised from head to toe, we had so much fun shooting them and I cannot wait to plan and photograph more projects like this.
In fact off this shoot, my friend Adi and I started a creative collective called Churche which we are planning to shoot a whole lot more projects just like this one under. So if anyone is keen to get in touch with us, just drop me a mail.
I uploaded this series bit by bit onto my Instagram account, but I thought I would do a blog post and include them all so that you can see them as a whole. If this is the first time you are viewing them, I’d love to hear what you think and to everyone else who left such awesome positive feedback, you guys rock!
