Sophie Laugher (Test Shoot)

Capturing Movement in Portraits

Model Sophie Laugher joined me in Cheltenham to create some beautiful portraits with a sense of movement to them. Having shot so many dance photography sessions I was keen to see how I could merge some dance photography ideas with fashion photography.

I used some slow shutter speeds (shutter drag) to capture the movement of the model moving from one pose to another. We also used rear curtain sync to freeze a final position with flash so that we overlayed a clear portrait over motion blur.

Lastly we used a high shutter speed to freeze fast movement.

The Night is Young- editorial

Collaboration with ethical clothing company Posie Lingerie- The night doesn’t have to be over as soon as you get home. Grab a drink from the fridge, take off your makeup and get comfortable, because the night is as young as you feel.

Around The House

Model Flora Gibbs shows us how to spend a lazy day taking it easy Around The House, relaxing, drinking coffee, listening to music, and curling up with duvets on the sofa.
