Allyce -The Thirty Minute Portrait Shoot

In our Creative Photography Workshop this week, I demonstrated a thirty-minute portrait shoot. Our model is the delightful Allyce, who is fifteen years old, and I had never previously met. The location was our usual meeting room at Tottington Library, with no photographic backdrops or props, only a red chair. 

Despite being watched by twenty onlookers and mum, Allyce soon settled in, and we achieved some lovely images.

Manchester Location Shoot


I've said so many times how much I love Manchester and that it has some fantastic locations for photography. Today we met up with MH and Aisha for their 1st anniversary portrait shoot and it couldn't have gone better. They're still very loved-up and both looked fabulous. Aisha wore a traditional hijab which accentuated her face and beautiful eyes. Though the top half of her costume was black, the lower half was a rainbow of colour. MH wore a more western outfit and looked really smart. We walked them both around the cobbled streets of Castlefield, stopping at various points to take photographs. We had an extremely enjoyable morning which resulted in some great images.
