Photoshoot for Laurelle’s woman new collection!

Laura, the lovely creator of the Laurelle Woman brand, liked the first photoshoot I did so much that she asked me to help her with another one.

Once again, we decided to shoot at Block 47 Studios, an amazing photography studio in Leeds. We used the same style and backdrop as last time but with some new additions including different pot plants, a ladder, rugs and a big sofa chair.

Laurelle Woman’s new spring/summer collection was designed and crafted by Laura using incredible dying and print techniques in blue and white. Fun facts: apparently she used ice to dye one of the tops and she printed some of the photographs I took last time on the new clothing items!

This time Laura also recruited Gemma, a talented MUA based in Leeds, to splash some contrasting bright yellow colour on our gorgeous Indonesian model who I already shot with, Anastasia.

Unlike last time, for this photoshoot we also took to the streets to exploit the bright outdoors sunlight and give some shots a bit more of an “urban” feel. You can view a selection of the pictures below. Let me know if you like this shoot in the comment section and if you would like to hire me for a similar job don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Photoshoot for Laurelle Woman

In September 2018 I was contacted by the creator of Laurelle Woman, a Leeds based womenswear brand. Laura wanted a quality photoshoot for her new clothing line so we met for a coffee and spent some time discussing colour schemes, location, model and props. The resulting shoot is definitely one of my favourites so far!

I picked Block 47 Studios in Leeds as our location. I think this is one of the best studios in town, the guys who run it are super nice and the space is well organised and suitable to many uses. Highly recommended.

Model Tasha did an amazing job posing for the camera and so did Laura styling and directing. On my side, I focused on making the most out of the natural light coming in from the big windows at the studio. Although it was a cloudy day, overcast sky is actually really good for portraits as it produces a soft and diffused light on the subject. Playing with plants, drapes and depth of field also helped give the shoot a natural and crisp look.

Equipment: Canon EOS 6D, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM.
