It’s been a while since I’ve posted some photography on here, truth being that a combination of people finishing uni and starting to go on holidays coupled with some sunny days and many rainy ‘wth is this Autumn?!’ days that I’ve been a little out of action. Not fab, but I’ve been brushing up on my skills recently thanks to another workshop with Jessops, all focused on fashion photography and how to make it work in the blogging industry.
I’ll admit that I turned up a little apprehensive that I’d be surrounded by bloggers with camera know-how or fabulous photographers themselves who just got it, knew it, had the game down, but I felt at ease and able to grasp everything the team at Jessops along with Tommy and Riccardo (truly amazing Italian fashion photographers) were demonstrating.
Jessops have lots of different photography and video based courses on offer (you can see what I did on their Level 1 + 2 Combo here) which is great if you want to try something new or build a skill, and I’ve always felt despite mainly photography people for fashion posts that I never knew enough about brief and control when it came to a professional fashion shoot, so I can safely say my practical confidence has grown (as has my tech list).
Because I’m an over-enthusiastic clicker, I took a good 1000+ photos on the day but have started to narrow down my best shots including these above; all were shot on the Canon 5D Mark III with either the 50mm or 85mm lens, which when camera and lens are combined is bloody beautiful.
Now that I’ve dipped my feet back into ~fashun~ I’m starting to take requests for photoshoots so if you’re based around London, Surrey or Brighton (locations can be discussed, obvs) and you’d like a photographer then get in touch for details! If you want examples of my previous work have a mooch here and here too.
As I said I’m doing a few more personal wellbeing posts, and photography is one of my biggest interests (if not my career goal) so I hope you’ll be sticking around to read more including the scattering of beauty bits, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on these photos and how you’ve been building your photography skills, or if you’d like to see me start up my photography posts again.
Lots of Love,
