The Mixed bag of May
Today marks the sad loss of a true icon and surrealist, H.R. Giger. May your work live on and inspire other artists throughout the decades. Your work and incredible talent will be missed. R.I.P.
Now on to the positive: What do we have planned for the remainder of this month?
Well, we have a shoot coming up with a fashion and marketing student (congratulations on completing your last exam, Alice!) where we’re going to pay homage to Audrey Hepburn and craft some simple black and white portrait shots. Simplicity is the name of the game here, so we’ll have simple lighting with soft shadows to really build atmosphere. The early Hollywood era is something I particularly enjoy and some of the photographers of that era are amazing. If you get a minute, look up Melbourne Spurr. He did a lot of work with the silent movie stars of the era and I certainly haven’t seen a picture from him!
We should also be working with Saints of The Undead Clothing later in the month. If bespoke/individually customised clothing is your bag, then keep your eyes peeled. They do custom designed t-shirts, jackets and jeans all with our inner-rockstar in mind! I’m sure if you want it done, Lee could do it for you. We really can’t wait to be working on this one! Alternative fashion is a true love of mine and the more unique and rock’n’rebel, the better!!
So there you have it. Another little insight into my mixed bag of inspirations and passions!
