You know sometimes you just want to shoot a model because they have a distinctive style, look, or persona. Tiina was one of those people…
An ad hoc shoot was arranged at short notice and we agreed to meet in the premises of our favourite purveyor of all things nylon.
In the rush to put everything together, I forgot to pack the radio triggers to fire of my lighting system.
The net result was to shoot or not to shoot…Well luckily I always carry a couple of speed lights, better known as flash guns, in my bag. I didn’t have any triggers so had to go with the flash on top of the camera, which is 99% percent of the time an absolute ‘No-No’. However, needs must.
Tiina made hr best efforts to quickly don the Rubber and Nylon combination that I had provided and made a sterling effort to run through elements of her posing routine.
At the time she appeared to be one of the hardest working and most regularly shot models on the local scene. Now having moved to America I still follow her activities on FaceBook etc where we are friends. (Yes, for the record, I am not a stalker).
All told despite the harsh shadows, not a bad coupe of hours shoot and some interesting shots developed along the way…
When a friend who is a profoundly excellent yoga teacher asked us to do some promotional shots for her we jumped at the chance…
Starting with a nice look for a typical day out with the girls we encouraged her to find her sassy style. She has a great love for Rock music and following the local music scene so we knew she had it within her to take a simple dress to a new level.
Of course it alway helps if one is fit and flexible to strike a number of poses easily, with a natural flow and elegance.
Through our pre shoot discussion we had found that she is an aspiring author an decided to flip her look to reflect how a successful woman might dress for a cocktail reception for her newest book deal.
She is such a vivacious person and it is so easy to make her chuckle, so we had to pause frequently to regain composure.
Without a doubt, she has all the right attributes to kill it everytime, her warmth and personality shining through.
In each set she is wearing simple barely black pantyhose to complement her outfits that give a nice elegant line. We provided the cocktail dress and accessories for the evening wear shoot and the first green two piece was the models own.
We revel in helping people achieve a look that reflects their personality and makes their image ‘pop’. Its so important these days in the realms of intense social media to have a look for the moment or a look for an emotion to keep your offerings fresh and engaging.

Sometimes, a model comes into our lives like a whirling dervish, full of enthusiasm and raring to shoot something new and exciting. Cue a well known international Nylon model Goddess Gin.
Pass her in the street and a glance, and double take, might have you reeling thinking you almost bumped into well known celebrity Pamela Anderson!
So we had been lent an awesome pair of leather formed dragon’s wings that the maker wanted shooting stylistically in a number of ways. Goddess Gin jumped at the opportunity to cavort around the hi key set up showing off her prowess as a female predator and dragon lady.
As a product, the wings were to retail for a couple of thousand pounds, and we felt highly privileged to shoot such a unique item. One can see the way the light catches them and shows off the amazing iridescent colour way that was crafted across the formed material.
All in all, it was an amazing day, and we were very fired up to shoot Goddess Gin in some of our finest nylon.
Then like a puff of smoke she was gone…
An amazing lady, and amazing costume that would be a showstopper at any cosplay event. We had the wings long enough to shoot two young ladies in an Angel au Demon style that was heavily laced with a unique take on ripped pantyhose. Watch this space for more on this later.
If you have something unique and creative you would like to shoot then do drop us a line through the website. we revel in making your products positively Rock!
Its not everyday we are delighted by the presence of two ladies from our local Thai community to come and shoot some fashion styles with us…
We started with some traditional Thai garb, and then moved on to something a little more risqué…
It was great to see them enjoying themselves as they confessed to usually being very camera shy and body conscious
We think our relaxed style helped them get into the mood off being more playful and at ease and they just kept on smiling throughout.
It was great to see just how well shiny nylon was complemented by their skin colour really bringing out a great contrast and shine.
They did comment that often back home in Thailand the weather is too warm where they live to wear nylon so it is not that common, unless going out to a special function in the evening when it gets a little chilly.
They concluded that they felt very feminine throughout the shoot and we believe we have some new converts to nylon. All that remains to be said, Job well done! And it is worthy of note that this images are straight out of the camera without even a first pass edit in Lightroom, so you can see the level we achieve from the outset.
Do drop us a line if you would like something shoot for posterity? Or know a friend or family member who could benefit from our services?
Well let’s face it, that got you looking didn’t it?
Today’s post is a celebration of our local dockside heritage.
And also a hint that we can use many places as a fine backdrop to add interest and variety into the mix of how we compose our shots.
Bringing the pictures to life with a little HDR twist also brings out all the lines and textures and expresses just how much detail a digital camera is actually picking up.
The Sun is on its way, so we start to come alive and get out and be more creative.
We Love shooting outdoors and have a wealth of great places in our locality. We always have an assistant or two with us to ward of any unwanted attention, so you can assure you will be safe, but at the same time will need a little exhibitionist streak in you…so no wallflowers need apply!
We Trust you can see the humour in the title as this young lady had an uncanny knack of curling her top lip in an Elvis style…
The purpose of this shoot was to go for some fashion shots and classy boudoir to revamp the budding models portfolio.
As you can see she has a fabulous figure, tall and slender, and poses well
She took very well to the three styles we envisioned for her, and had a lot of fun during the fast paced shoot.
It also gave us the opportunity to try out some new retro foundation wear we had purchased with a modern twist. The grey shaping body worked like a dream at accentuating the best of her figure.
We recommend always guiding a model when putting on Fully Fashioned Nylons. Many young ladies will not have come across such delicate material, and we recommend they wear gloves when putting on the stockings, otherwise it is easy to get the inevitable snags and a pair of £20 nylons are ruined.
But then again some people like to see a run in a stocking, almost as much as they like to see the way old nylons wrinkle as they do not have lycra in them to provide some degree of stretch like modern yarns.
We enjoy helping models find a new look or style and revamp their portfolio. We provided all three outfits, stockings, pantyhose, props and styling for this shoot, and I find you’ll agree the results are rather splendid.
