Models. If you can do the retro look, and do it well and you like what you see here, then over to you. :)

Currently the ONLY Retro Photographer in the UK and Europe who is shooting exclusively on a regular basis with models and airworthy vintage aircraft from the period 1910-70.

General information

Photographic styles include.

The ‘high society’ look, ball gowns, voluminous dress clinched with wide belt, stiletto heels, hats, sleek long gloves, seamed nylon stockings, liberal make-up with glamorous, elegant polished ‘de rigeur’ look, dark eyeliner and false lashes, bright red lipstick. Think Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe.

The ‘town set’ floral summer frocks, twin set and pearls, tight pencil skirts, nylons, stilettos, hats, fox fur, small handbag, gloves, rouge. Think Audrey Hepburn.

The ‘beat girl’ or ‘sweater girl’ look, casual frock, wool sweater, short-sleeved blouse, T-shirt, trousers or Capri pants with wide belt, stiletto heels, deck shoes, head/neck scarf, dark sunglasses and vibrant red lipstick. Think Marilyn Monroe.

Photographer Notes
About the photography

Access came early on though associated work in the UK vintage aircraft scene to major collections of airworthy aircraft ranging from pre-war types, WWII Fighters and Bombers to post-war types of every description. At first the work was mainly technical detail. Later, the retro side of the photography developed. Adding models in period dress-undress to these collections was a natural progression of the photographic work. A love the forties, fifties and sixties era, along with the history men and machines, and of course the women and their fashions have been key elements in influencing the style of images produced.

Arranging for the availability and use of vintage aircraft can often be protracted due to their operational requirements. The period aircraft I use are all airworthy and fly on a regular basis. As you can imagine there is quite a bit of groundwork to be done prior to any shoot. Setting up a shoot initially involves several meetings with the appropriate operators to look at type availability etc. Therefore at the moment I'm looking at serious enquiries only. So, if you are a serious retro enthusiast and would like to work with me then drop me a line and I will do by best to accommodate you. Please note. I do not chase after models. ( Bookmark )
