A few days ago i was invited to take part in a charity calendar shoot, not as the main shooter but as someone to keep the models entertained while waiting.

I arrive at the location to find that it's a naked calendar, now glamour is something i've tried in the past (you can see these attempts here and here) but it's not something i'm too comfortable with as i find it's kind of expected of a photographer these days and the majority that is put out by so called photographers looks cheap and gratuitous and that's something i want to distance myself from, that and it's just boring to shoot.

With this in mind i had no idea what to do, should i rest on my laurels and shoot portraits or do i go with the flow and and try to take a subject i have little interest in and make it work. Luckily i met Jay and while she enjoys glamour she prefers the more creative aspects of photography, while everyone was shooting indoors Jay and i were outside braving sun, dust, nettles and as you can see splinters in hopes of getting some unique shots.

It's safe to safe we shall be working together soon. :)

    Hi I'm Nick

    Welcome to my blog : here you'll find my photographic experiments. 

    I started this project in early 2011 when I realised I wanted to spend my time doing something I enjoyed and here you'll find the ongoing results of this. I wouldn't say I'm a pro, sure I studied photography at college but that was about a decade ago so what I learnt back then I've mostly forgotten - I just strive to make the best images possible, no matter what the subject.
