September & October Lookbook

It's one of the most cliché ways to start a blog post, but here goes: 

SORRY FOR NOT POSTING IN AGES.

Now that's out of the way, let's have a look at some of my favourite shots from September and October. I've done a bit of portraiture, a bit of food photography, and a bit of other random stuff. Let me know what you think.

I'll say it quietly, but I'm pretty glad summer is over. Autumn is definitely in my top two, so expect a bunch of shoots in the coming weeks and months. I'll be updating my Instagram pretty regularly, so take a look at my page if you like. No pressure.

Fancy a shoot? Sick of all the questions? Gimme a shout either way.

Flowers, Laughs and Heathcliff | Blogger Photoshoot

Fresh off the back of a blogger photoshoot with Amani, the next day I shot with Juliet, who blogs at Not Capulet. (Good name for a blog, right?)

We started with a coffee and prayed that the rain would hold off, exchanging photos of our cats in the meantime. When we decided to brave the elements (it was pretty windy by this time), we went in search of some flowers. Juliet had an open mind about what kind of shots we would take, but the floral theme was a popular suggestion, so off we went.

Here are some of my favourite shots from the day:

Nottingham city centre is pretty bereft of flowers, but we managed to find a few. From Broadway Cinema (which Quentin Tarantino loved so much that he used it for the UK premiere of Reservoir Dogs) to Cobden Chambers, we found some pretty cool locations.

We also stopped outside Nottingham's Kitty Cafe, as Juliet regaled me with tales of many of the feline residents within. Her personal favourite, Heathcliff, was sadly nowhere to be seen. But she did have a copy of Wuthering Heights in her bag, so he was there in a sense.

I'm really happy with how the photos came out and, like the day before, it was a lot of fun. We both agreed that a blog should be about authenticity, so I hope I managed to show a bit of the real Juliet in these shots.
