Location - Stone Bay, Broadstairs, Kent
Date - 2nd July 2013
On Tuesday the 2nd of July, I had a shoot arranged with Kristina, a local model who I have been wanted to work with on this shoot for a while. But the weather had at that point a bit unpredictable so once we knew we were guaranteed some sunshine we booked in this date.
I was also working with local suppliers, Tony and Donna who own Metal Man Jewellery, based in Rough Trade in Margate Old Town. I have worked with them previously and they are always happy to collaborate on shoots so I popped in to see them on the Tuesday morning and collected a few different items of jewellery.
I decided on shooting out on location at Stone Bay, Broadstairs. One of my favourite local beaches as it doesn't get a busy as others and has lots of rock pools and the stunning backdrop of the cliffs and random structures build into the cliff edge. We wanted to shoot some natural but edgy photos. Kristina brought along a great selection of clothing to work with the fantastic selection of jewellery that we were using.
As it was a product shoot, obviously the basis of the photos were going to be structured around the designs from Metal Man but I also wanted to capture images that Kristina was hoping to add to her portfolio. She is a great model to work with. Highly recommended and very easy going, happy to try any ideas out and a great sense of humour!
The jewellery also comes with the highest of recommendations! I am a huge fan of Tony and Donnas work, I pop in and see them both all the time, sometimes just for a chat and also to have a look at what new ideas they are currently making. The jewellery is always made to the highest standard and you really don't see anything else like it! Amazing products!
