From Fairytale fantasy photography to commercial lifestyle images for models portfolios, in this 'A Decade in Review' blog I look back at my favourite photoshoots and images from 2015
2015 was actually a relatively quiet year as far as testing was concerned. When I did test it was either to help build a model portfolio or create a specific image for my portfolio.
If you've read my 2014 review you would have seen I had built a relationship with BMA models who were regularly asking me to help build or update their model portfolios. Surprisingly we had a warm and pleasant January so as well as creating a selection of studio images for a new face model, Gabriella, we also made the most of the mild weather for a selection of lifestyle shots.

In June 2015 along with makeup artist Clare Bradshaw, I arranged a Fairytale style shoot with model Anna Nause. This was a shoot Clare was keen to do and she supplied the props which included handmade pieces.

We were also keen to create a series of Fossil Boyfriend watch images this year which we could share on social media and present to Fossil.
In July of 2015, Clare and I jumped on a train to London to meet model Indiraya to continue building our Fossil watch 'Boyfriend' collection of images. This time we moved around the Westminster area on a windy but sunny day.

In December 2015, model and friend Grace Gray asked if I would help shoot some lifestyle images of her which her agency was screaming out for, as always with Grace, we mixed business with pleasure and although we didn't have much time to shoot we were delighted as always with the results.
Although Grace can shoot anything from fashion to lingerie and had worked on many commercial images, she wasn't supplied with the commercial images and agencies want to see 'proof' you can shoot that genre.
