Street Photography – catch up

I realised that while I have posted a few of my recent model shoots, I have neglected recording my “street” stuff and “cafe society” work.

So here is a selection from the last couple of months. Mainly, as usual, around Newcastle. Although I have ventured further afield so there may be some Whitley Bay and (Gulp!!) Berwick included. One of my aims is to travel further afield.

I didn’t “do” the Hoppings or Town Moor as I have never liked fairgrounds – great photo ops that they are. To get a flavour of that may I recommend two other great blogs on here by friends of mine Chris Harrison and CJ. Well worth following

Chris Harrison’s street stuff
Fragglerocks stuff

Ashleigh – quick shoot

My average time on a photoshoot is usually a couple of hours. But I had a shoot arranged with a model, Ashleigh Foster, who I have worked with a couple of times before. But on this occasion the shoot was the day before she was jetting off to Corfu and she had a zillion jobs to do. So when I arrived it was to a stressed lady who informed me I only had about an hour. I think the pressure helped…because we got some brill stuff. 

Here’s a few from the session 

Jazz

My second photo shoot with this kooky (in the nicest way!) model. 

Jazz is one sure fire free spirit! The closest to a real “hip” hippy as I will get I think. 

She likes blue – the colour, and trees and nature generally. Embraces veganism and I love her to bits!! 

Catch Up Time – Modelshoots

As always…fallen behind in posting my photoshoot work.  Although I did my last shoot around the beginning of December model wise.

Anyway…These are some of the lovely ladies I have been working with since…well my last post.

Had quite a few photoshoots recently..(NSFW)

Hi folks

I have been really fortunate to work with some wonderful models recently. Most of my work can be found on my Flickr account.  But..here is a flavour..

Anna Fizzy

Paris Jones

 

Rachie Bowman

 

And finally I was helping out a great photographer (Chris Harrison – on here as Grime & Glamour) shoot the lovely Lizzie Faith.  These are some behind the scenes shots.

I have about 3/4 more shoots coming up before I take a break from shooting models until after the New Year. I will post as and when I get them done.

Take care

John

I leave photography for a brief moment..

My other passion is being a fan of Newcastle United. (A “soccer” team for those in the colonies.

This is my thoughts from yesterday

Went to my first Newcastle away game in ages (going to Stadium of Shite, our arch rivals Sunderlands home ground, doesn’t count). Had a great time in Preston as the memories came flooding back. No knee room in back of car, eating your sarnies by 11:30, making your carry on bottles last, parking a mile away from ground for that “beat the traffic getaway” – and the 15 min walk back as the driver and other passengers walk like those Olympic blokes with the funny action. Only sitting down for half time, putting up with the pissheads who can’t be arsed to check their tickets and just barge into a row and stand there, secretly puffing on a stinking e cig.

But…. Still that terrific feeling when (against the odds) your psycho forward scores two goals in 10 minutes and, in spite of 9 minutes added time you hang on for the win!!! If Carling did away games….
Oh…did I mention – hearing the Mackems lose 4-1 at home!!

(I only had 2 bottles and a twix left for the journey home).
May be a while before my next one…..

 

I’m surprising myself..

I remember I have this blog thing! 

I had another photoshoot this week. It’s a brilliant model called Sway (obviously not her real name..but she’s a model). I worked with her before but that was on location. This shoot was in a studio (Ivy Studio in Newcastle. I can highly recommend. Good rates, nice owner and good facilities) https://m.facebook.com/IvyStudioNE4/?locale2=en_GB

The shoot was a bit of a varied one. Sway is massively into Japanese art and culture so we shot some Seifuku based stuff then Carried on using storage rooms etc (I love shooting in unusual parts of a building ) to do some harnessed lingerie etc. These images are a flavour for now. I will put up a fuller set when editing done. If I remember. 

Enjoy.

Blog to follow..

I normally let people take their own path as to what to follow,read look at etc. 

But if I may take a minute to check this guy out. Yes, he’s a good friend of mine. But, without him I wouldn’t be doing the photography I do now. That’s model stuff and street photography. 

He has an interesting outlook on life (he’s also one of the best photographers I know -but this is his general musings sometimes funny always interesting
