The Man in the Suit!

This was an interesting shoot. we tried to mix urban with fashion .. bend a few rules.. the pictures came out well with different types of lighting.

even though it got dark early and cold.. we still ended up with a good outcome.

Inspiration#2 – Markus Klinko & Indrani

There is something about these two. The duo are very powerful when they work together,  one is a  former model who is now the retoucher and creative director = Indrani….one is a former world class harpist now a world class photographer.

Their work says it all.. The bron color para ( the big umbrella ) was a thing I said wow to. They were the first I have seen  use it. The lighting they use, the make up, the styling and the feel of the picture is crazy.

Flashback #2- Dot Rotten Photoshoot

Dot Rotten is a well established music artist/producer from south london. Formerly known as ‘Young Dot’ , dot rotten has built his name from grime/garage and now specializes in both, grime and rap genres.

The shoot was done at 3am in the morning, in the cold, empty streets of essex.  Having no one around  was a good thing as we can go in the roads and shoot anywhere.  The objective was to create a ‘one sided  portrait’ with one side of  ‘Rottens’ face lit up.

The second image (below) was done in the roads.. the traffic lights  gave off 3 dots of light which was caught in the shot.

the shoot was successful, with some great results, even though I ended up with some equipment damaged because of the windy morning.

‘BY THE WAY’:

Dot Rotten has 2 great cds on sale, make sure you go and buy them, On ‘Extra attention you can see my photography on the cd cover.

Erm.. Where Do I start…

Hello world .. Its me .. Rio .. the director and photographer of the company.. Ive been here thinking of concepts.. writing notes down in the pad.. The pages are getting covered in ink of spider diagrams.. I need to start bringing these ideas to life .. thats when things are going to start happening.

I had a crazy idea of  a model in the shower or bath but still in his suit.. It needed to come out of my head and go onto data .. so the phone call got made to my good friend Daniel and he was up for it. The shoot took 6 hours with 2-3 concepts but the water one was the main one.

Not bad for a first time model ey!

This was the bath idea. freezing cold in the water

This was the shower version.. one of my personal favourites!
