I’ve shot Fenella before in our Day of the Dead shoot, so we decided to up the ante for Valentine’s day with some more complex play piercings with Fenella and her partner Steffka.

Celebrity portraits: Pete Bennett

Most people remember Pete from Big Brother, but I met him when he was up in Newcastle in the summer shooting the sequel to Zombie Women of Satan. Pete’s a lovely guy, really creative and sweet, he’d recently eaten a chilli so hot he ended up in hospital, and a kid mistook him for Russell Brand in Subway in Chester-le-Street. And here he is, in the guise of his character Bertie Dumble.

Vinyl Social Instax Project

I picked up this record from artist Sol Aramendi’s Vinyl Social exhibition, and thought Instax images would work well with the original ethos of her piece, which you can read all about on the link.┬áCheck out her photography while you’re there, it’s awesome.

The models are all friends of mine, are all artists of one description or another, and are happy for people to contact them.

It’s always great to watch talented people at work, and being invited along as a photographer opens up even more of these opportunities. I was fascinated to watch the Skin Seamstress doing her thing, and love the images we got. As an added bonus, we got featured on BMEZine too. Win!
