I wanted to make that quite clear - I know some photographers have major issues with models using older images - which is fair enough. Some of these are older than the others - 2 from 2010, 4 from last year and 1 from only a couple of months ago. If you can guess which is which without opening up any exif data then well done.
Its a strange feeling looking over old images, a nice type of strange but tinged with a little sadness.
We all get older, this is a fact and nothing can stop our bodies from getting older, I don't really mind about my body getting older but I do think "how much time have I got left" - in a model sense of course.
Below is a shot from a quick shoot Rory and I done with Rachael Lyon - Nicola Fleming @ the cutting room and Sophie Alexis doing makeup. I felt rubbish after that little set because there was something I wasn't "feeling". I wanted a ginger afro, like desperately wanted one so I kind of got one but I just felt like a big ugly blob at the time and avoided actually looking at the pictures after the shoot because I knew I wasn't over flowing with confidence. Anyway I came across one which isn't so bad, it will never be the best shot of me but its not really that bad that it deserves bin status. Plus Rachael looks fab in it <3 p="p">
There is literally hundreds of folders with images on them, some sets which we never even edited. Rory and I don't usually shoot then process 30 similar images - If the shoot has went well then its 5 at most, if its working with somebody else then usually more but when its for just the two of us and we are not overly filled with love for the shots then its usually only 1 or 2. We always aim for 1 good shot :D
I've decided to do this type of blog every month - until I run out of things to post but I will no doubt be making more pictures in the meantime. So if there was any shots you have seen which you liked and wished to have seen a slightly different variation on it please give me a shout -and I will work my magic.
