Sports Advertising Portrait Shoot

Just a little Magic

Last week I had a client postpone a shoot so rather than chase around for a replacement I decided to smash out some personal work. I have been keen to explore some more dramatic lighting styles and effects for an athletics client. This is not something i would risk on a paid job so this time presented me with a great opportunity.

I booked some studio space and did a quick ring around to a few pal's in some of Scotland's top modelling agencies and actually ended up with too many models to use. I decided to work on a first come basis (because they were all amazing) which actually worked out perfectly. We had a good mix of physique and experience and ended up with three guys who were more than happy to be my stand in athletes for the day.

As is always the way on a lighting test some things worked and some things did not. But over all the results are exactly what I was hoping for and we got to play with smoke, HSS and some glorious low key lighting.

Good times...
