When the machines fall silent..

At the weekend I was given access to a now silenced factory..where once it was alive with the sounds of people working and the steady throb of machines it was now eerily quiet…with perhaps only the occasional plop of dropping water echoing eerily in the distance.

For this adventure we have the lovely Amy, who braved the cold to model. All images are shot using the Sony A7rii, an 85mm lens and occasionally lighting by Rotolight (Neo I and II).

See look sometimes I do shoot in colour, although more and more these days it is monochrome that colours my life! (like what I did their?)

Probably a pixie..am fairly sure a pixie…

Sometimes all you need is a pretty girl and a dingy location to create beautiful images


These are a few images from an explore of an abandoned farmhouse. A criminal waste of a lovely property that has been allowed to fall into disrepair. It currently teeters on that fine line where in a few short years it will be beyond repair.
My model for the day was the lovely Stacy. The shoot was two fold in that I wanted to see how the property photographed for a future shoot and also I wanted to test with Stacy with a view to a future biker style shoot we had discussed.
The morning had started off with lovely blue skies peppered with fluffy white clouds and as we arrived at the shoot location this had been replaced by grey overcast skies and a significant drop in temperature matched by a gentle breeze…
Today marked the death of a second of my 7dayshop umbrellas, however it’s death was not in vain as it cushioned the landing for the flash heads and pocketwizard that was behind it!
One day I will learn my own lesson that no matter how light the wind seems an umbrella is perfectly made to form a very effective kite!!
