Head shot’s

If you, like so many other people have chopped up an old photo from your hols or used an image taken on someones phone at a family do to use for your profile image on your social media then please stop and think what this says about you and your company. It’s great to come across as accessible and friendly but some might look at your image and see it as not bothering and possibly slightly unprofessional. I like relaxed and quirky shots for profile pics I’m not saying every company suits a formal look but if you are going to have a picture then choose wisely, get it taken professionally. We all like to see who we are dealing with and like it or not we do make judgements on what we see, make sure the judgements people make are the right ones about you.

What is Boudoirvous?

Confidential

It’s something Brides asked me about when I used to do a lot of Wedding Photography. You see many women spend a decent amount on their wedding lingerie and like the idea of creating images to give to their fiance on the day of their wedding as a personal gift.

Since then I have women of all ages, all shapes and sizes come to my studio or I have visited them in a hotel room to take pics. Why does that sound seedy? I don’t want people to think it is seedy, I want people to understand Boudoirvous is not about sensationalising or exploiting women it’s about liberation, expression and freedom. A lot of my clients say they feel feel a new sense of confidence when they leave the shoot excited to see the final images.

I am female, and I am middle aged with all the lumps and bumps of life, I get it! I get that most of us want images that show us at our best, none of us want our squidgy bits exposed we appreciate careful lighting and some advice with what to wear and how to pose.

Some women like the idea of buying a new outfit having their hair and make-up professionally styled and then having a photo shoot others like to dress in lingerie or some go the ‘full monty’ as they want to create beautiful fine art style images in black and white.

That’s one of the things I love the most about Boudoirvous that is it so personal and unique there is no right or wrong way, everyone brings their own ideas along to the shoot.

Nicholas Mc Carthy- One handed pianist

Here are some images from a recent assignment with the delightful and amazingly talented Nicholas McCarthy, he needed some pictures quickly as Nargis magazine were doing a feature about him and wanted a shot for the front cover and also some images to sit alongside the article. We arranged a shoot at my studio one evening and took a series of images which the magazine later went on to use. Nic was born without a right hand and was the first left hand only pianist to graduate from the Royal College of Music in London in its 130 year history. Here are a few of my favourites from the shoot.
