If you can imagine being included amongst a line up of some of your heroes, thats pretty much exactly how I feel after the recent announcement of Farm Week 2016. Alongside the talents of Samm Blake, Ryan Muirhead and Martin Parr, I am really excited to announce that on Thursday 11th February 2016, I have been invited back to teach my Fine Art Of Boudoir Masterclass at Photography Farm for it’s third year!

I have heard it said often in the photography industry that retouching hair could be used as a form of punishment, but when the opportunity arose this summer to shoot my very first hair campaign for Haringtons Soho, I was really looking forward to it. Venturing away from the hair rolls and finger waves, it gave me the opportunity to get creative with a variety of different styles, colours and textures that wouldn’t normally feature in my regular commissions...

March is one of my favourite months in the photographic industry. Along with the annual migration up to the NEC in Birmingham for The Photography Show​ (and previously Focus On Imaging) comes a whole host of announcements of new cameras, lenses and gear that will inevitably end up on my Christmas wish list in a few months time! I don’t often get much of a chance to walk around the event as I’m working on the +Wacom stand, but this year I made a special effort to go and see the guys and girls on +The Flash Centre ​’s stand, who had just released an announcement about at launch of the +Elinchrom  LTD​ ELB 400 series, which will be replacing the Ranger Quadra Hybrid series I have been working with exclusively for the past two years.

As it happened, Photo Professional Magazine (one of the magazines I write a regular monthly tutorial for) were looking to test and review the ELB 400 series, so I found myself entrusted with one of a small handful of pre-release demo units to experiment with in the studio for the next few weeks and to push to its limits. During this time I was able to use the flash kit on a number of my regular commissions, but I also invited back The Burlesque Hall of Fame​’s Most Innovative Performer 2014 Aurora Galore​ to spend some time really pushing the lighting equipment to its full potential...

Photo Retouching: How much is too much?

Whilst most people have bucket lists of things they want to do or see in their lifetime, I have a second bucket list of lingerie brands I’d love to work with over the next few years at Tigz Rice Studios. Once such brand is UK based Karolina Laskowska, who I stumbled upon a few years back via mutual friends in the lingerie industry...
