New Front to my business card

Playing with those images to imitate a Calvin Kline ad gave me an idea. I thought why not use one as a front to my business card. I think this fits in with the new branding.

Do you?

If you want to know how it was done, click on yes in the poll below, if I get enough responses I will do a blog on it.

Inspired by Calvin Klein

I was flicking through December’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar and came across an advert for a Calvin Klein advertisement for their perfume. It inspired me to do this edit of Amie. Probably not as good as the original but I am pleased with the result.

Are you?

Want to be a Vargas Girl?

I am still looking for Vargas Girls for a calendar, won’t be 2012 now but hopefully 2013.

Go to this page for details and to apply.

Do you like Iguanas?

On a recent assignment I was asked to get images of market stalls, sorry I should say shops, within a mini mall in Birmingham called Plaza Malls. Between the two locations it has around 60 stalls selling anything from electronics to the new feet in fish craze. The Mall has to be a mall rather than a market for reasons only government bureaucratic red tape can untangle. It definitely has market prices, the butcher and baker had me reaching into my pocket with the bargains on offer. I delivered 64 edited images to to my client within 72 hours.

I will add a link to their web site as soon as I can so that you can see the results and get the address. If you live in Birmingham it is well worth a visit even if only for an eighty pence mug of excellent coffee.

One of the shops was a pet store which specialised in lizards and snakes. These two iguanas have been in the company of these two lads who run the shop for nine years. They have another one at home. Not a fan of snakes I am afraid but the varieties of lizards was amazing. They even breed their own and had several pregnant ladies in their tanks.

I suspect you might be seeing this image appear in people and places


Who goes first?

I need to put together some galleries for the model portfolio section of my web site. I have had the pleasure of shooting with a number of great models but who should be first?

I need your help.
