The Clothes Throw at Palm Sugar

Following the Liverpool shoot with Charlotte (see entry for 8th Oct) I managed to get her an invite to a casting session which was choosing models for a charity fashion show at Palm Sugar - a cocktail lounge in Liverpool ONE. She was selected for the event which was last  week - and I went along to support her and take some photos for her portfolio. Although Palm Sugar is far too small for a fashion show and the lighting totally unsuitable I did my best with the aid of a speedlite and a studio light that a couple of students from LJMU brought. Here are a couple of pics from Charlotte's big night (she was a natural!).

Swinging Dice are a French 'swing' band. They played a gig at DeBees in Winsford on 1st Sept, 2011. Here are a few photos from that evening.

Charlotte (fashion)


I was walking through Liverpool last week (with my camera) when a girl stuck her head out of a parked car window and said 'will you take my photo'. I love it that people do that kind of thing in Liverpool! I pointed my camera at her and she said 'its OK - I was only kidding'.I said I was going to take it anyway - and did. I showed her the pic. 

She didn't think she looked too good so she sprang out of the car and posed expertly against a wall and I rattled off a couple of shots. I sent her the pics by email and she asked if I'd take some shots so that she could build a portfolio and try for modelling opportunities. 

How could I say no? Here's a sample of what came out of an hour's session in Liverpool on an overcast, windy morning a few of days later.
