Well, the last few weeks have been just so hectic! I’ve been sent all around the country photographing care homes, paving slabs, dustbins and a three day shoot for Reebok in Stockport! Now, because of all the embargo rules, I can’t post any shots that feature any of Reebok’s Autumn/Winter 2013 and Spring/Summer 2014 collections but I can post a photo of our fantastic ‘foot’ model - Jermaine! Given that the J&A team had him doing all sorts of weird and wonderful things in the name of art and consumerism, Jermaine was a perfect gent and next time you see a Reebok catalogue; spare a thought for all the pain and anguish that he went through just so the footwear could look fantastic!!
The second reason for choosing this shot was that it was lit with my new toy (kindly given to me as a present by my lovely boss… thanks Tim!) - the IceLight, designed by my favourite Wedding Photographer, Jerry Ghionis. This incredible piece of portable daylight looks like a light sabre and provides a beautiful, yet subtle light quality that those people fumbling with their off-camera flashes could only dream about! It’s not cheap, (fortunately I know a really good camera shop in Barnstaple!!) but it will add a new dimension to all my photography, especially my Weddings and I am so looking forward to using it!
