Suite Moments Art Expo - Private viewing April 2012


This started as pure escapism.
I remember putting up a status on facebook ages ago, something like :

"apparently sex sells, lets find out"..

Since then I've been amazed at what I've learned from the exploration.  Away from sex and money.
You see beyond bodies, questions form and then the fun begins.

Tired with some of the limitations of the music industry, two years ago I decided to experiment with some erotic art photography and here we are invited to share that journey courtesy of Sh! women's erotic emporium, Unit 4, 253 Portobello Road, London, W11.

This is a big people ting! Arty, adult themes, simple and open.

Trust, Evaluate, Express, Share.

These words capture the essence of the relationship I formed with the models and how I felt my way through the process.

This expo is special to me because it features the first images I ever captured at that North London Hotel room. In Suite 301 to be more precise. Thanks again to Mini Miu, Amy Latina, Chrissy Chroi, Jazz Jones and others for getting involved.

Thanks to everyone that made it down to the private viewing.  What a night!

My work will be on display at the Portobello Road branch of Sh! (on the corner of Lancaster road) until the end of April, then we move to the Hoxton branch for May.

Exclusive limted edition prints and such are available and more.

Get in touch with questions, for a chat about shoots, prints and anything else..

Amber West

Having setup my own personal shoots and experimentation I wanted to extend it to members of our facebook group.

Initially I wanted to invite models I'd worked with before but circumstances (and a vibrant casting call) lead us to Amber West.

She was punctual, organised and easy to work with.

We arrived at a simple studio apartment in Kingscross. Self contained spot with no fuss.
Took loads of lingerie, implied nude and profile shots.

One of the togs on the day decided to play with the lighting and we all focused on her shoes for a minute.

What a great idea!

I never really understood the shoe fetish thing.. (still dont really), but for some reason I couldn't stop taking pictures of her feet in those shoes. The shadow from the heels, the endless shin.. the poise and presence.. did something.. not sure what it did.. but it did something..
