Ladies Camera Club

8 Mar 2013


I'm on a tight deadline, I'm cutting it fine but I always manage to nip in at the 11th hour.  Its my life, its what I do.  I love it even though I'm left exasperated.  Every few hours I have to take a break so I either walk the dog or like this week, I go for a run.

Ive loved running since I was 12.  Both myself and my brother were runners at school and in the RAF, during training, I always came first (and I had to run in issue plimsolls (ouch).  Over the years I have fits and starts of running - I'm not consistent but then that is my life!  I'm more of a distance runner and whilst I run, I actually think and plan.  So with a recent health kick, I began running on Saturday night.  I run every other day (when I'm in the zone) and manage Faartlek based sessions the best over a distance of 5k.  And whilst running last night, I planned an editorial submission in my head.

So on the 19th and 20th March I will be shooting a spring based theme inspired by this mood board here.  I'm even using live rabbits and little chicks (scream!) as carefully handled props.

I put a casting call out for 2 x androgynous models (I found two - one in Liverpool, one in Leeds), 2 x MUA's (both from Liverpool) and 2 x hairstylist - none as yet but I reckon we can all smoosh that end of the bargain.  I'm styling the set myself and have literally begged some high streets and independent shops for loan of clothes - its what you do on a budget of ZERO.  Don't you just love a challenge?

I love editorial style shooting.  I like urban settings with natural light.  I like models to not "over pose" - and just let them be with a soupcon of direction.  I don't favour big cheesy smiles or duck faced pouting.  I hate the kind of lighting that is reminiscent of a 1980's music video.  I like shadows and mood.  And that is where we are going with this.

I'm a bit scared to be honest and couple that with my other work commitments, its also a drain on my free time.  But its so exciting.  And whilst I continue to run, I continue to come up with outlandish ideas that harmonises with being a born creative.

This is my life.

What is it for? As for not over posing not seen these pics yet. Do you ever take those to share? maybe a play school would like the flowers in tissue? Ah outlet which would serve a purpose in the community

can't believe you'll have little chicks and rabbits, they'll be worse than my kids (or maybe not!). Keep up with the running, it makes such a difference. Please stop posting the random anonymous comments, although mildly hilarious that someone could be so a) rude and b)stupid I think they derive some pleasure from seeing their criticisms.
