The title of my fashion shoot at the moment is classic. My idea is to create a series of images on the suit. But rather than having a woman and a man i am using both women in the shoot. I want an androgynous model and a feminine one and after talking with my tutors today they suggested that i be the 'male' figure. I thought about it and then decided that it was worth a try so i went out and sourced the clothes and took a couple of test pictures. 

The question is am i the right 'man' for the job???

The Builders

In New York, i visited ground Zero. At the time i arrived to the area a lot of the construction workers for the new World Trade Centre were on their lunch break, hanging around on the street. I decided to document the men responsible for the new sky scraper. Whilst i was doing so i managed to chat to a few of the guy who were all very welcoming and happy to talk to me. Also shot on my 35mm with colour film these are scans of the prints.

The New Yorker

I just got back from a university trip to New York. Whilst i was over there i shot on my 35mm Pentax 1000. I decided to shoot in film to get a street 'grunge' style to my images, as i new i would be walking round taking pictures of people off the street.

whilst we were over there i was inspired by both the architecture but also the people living in New York. 
This is a portrait i took in Soho, New York. I spotted the man walking towards me in the street and got his permission to take a quick portrait of him. One of the most interesting things that i found shooting this portrait was although he allowed me to take the picture, he pulled up the scarf to cover most of his face, hiding most of his identity.

Double page spread

For a mini project at uni we had to create a two page spread, based on any magazine we chose. I decided to shoot mine for Dazed and Confused magazine. I was inspired by Laurence Passera, a fashion photographer represented by Gainsbury & Whiting. I used Ilana once again for my model as i feel we work well together as we are friends. 

 I created these images in the studio using colour gels on the flash lights. None of the colour has been created in post production as i wanted to be able to do it without relying on photoshop.   

These are the two final images i used in my double page spread.
