The morning after the Spice of Life shoot with Jiva and Dan, I had a few hours to kill before moving on to my WildAid shoot, so we climbed out of a top story window and did a mini shoot on the Archway rooftops. It was a challenge with the bright sunshine casting harsh shadows (annoyingly I didn’t have my flash with me to help fill in the shadows) but it was a lot of fun and well worth the effort!

In August last year I had the privilege of photographing two talented young guitarists, Jiva Housden and Dan Bovey, at the Spice of Life music venue in London. Jiva and Dan met while at music school together and play beautifully as a duet. Being their photographer made for a lovely evening of good company and good music, what more can you ask for on a shoot?
We arrived in true style by underground.

This week it was like Christmas all over again, x50. I’ve finally been able to replace my stolen lenses! Never again will I take my equipment for granted.. it’s been five days and I’m still giddy with excitement.
So the timing couldn’t be more perfect for the wonderful Sophie to request some headshots for her acting work. Naturally I jumped at the opportunity to try out my new lenses, and to have such a lovely model for the afternoon.
Our first stop was the British Museum, where I’ve always wanted to test how the glass roof of the Great Court diffuses the light. I wasn’t disappointed.
Look at the smoothness in the lighting! Like we’re under a giant softbox. Delicious.
