Magazine Editorial Photography for Fabulous Magazine

MAGAZINE EDITORIAL | BRIGHTON

 
Two weeks ago the picture editor of Fabulous Magazine called me in my Brighton studio to ask me to photograph a young woman called Claire for their weekly magazine editorial feature ‘It happened To Me’.

Claire was an active 19 year old when she had a massive stroke that left her severely paralysed, but after 3 years of total committed rehab and real hard work, the brilliant and charming Claire is starting once again to lead an active normal life.

It was an interesting day for this Brighton photographer; as I drove from Brighton to Christchurch near Bournemouth for the photoshoot I did something really painful to my back and so spent the 2 hours with Claire in total agony, but I couldn’t really complain seeing how amazing and utterly non-complaining Claire was.

Anyway, my back is fine again, the magazine ran the feature last weekend, and here is the photograph they used.sussex-editorial-brighton-photographer-fabulous

Jon Harrison Stage Combat Actor Headshot

HEADSHOT | ACTORS | BRIGHTON

 

Jon is a brilliant young stage combat actor who specialises in weapons and marshall arts, and he travelled down from London to my Brighton photography studio to have his new actors headshots taken for Spotlight and Casting Call Pro.

Jon is an extremely talented guy and I was so impressed with his skill and poise at using the ‘weapons’. He’s a fully trained Marshall Arts stage fighter as well, and I’m sure he’s going to get loads of work in the industry. Here are my favourites from the shoot.

Inti Conde Headshot Portraits Brighton

HEADSHOT | ACTORS | BRIGHTON

 

I photographed the charming and talented young opera singer and actor Inti Conde in my Brighton studio for his Spotlight and Casting Call Pro headshot portraits.

Inti had travelled down from London for the photoshoot – he was a real pleasure to work with and was excellent at taking directions and understanding the coaching I gave him as we went along.  I just love these two powerful photos of him.

Jay Waylett Actors Headshot Spotlight Brighton

HEADSHOT | ACTORS | BRIGHTON

 

Jay, who is a young aspiring actor based in Haywards Heath Sussex, called me with an urgent request to make an actors headshot for a film casting that he wanted to attend 3 days later, and wondered if I could fit him into a photo session here in my Brighton studio.

Unfortunately the studio was completely booked out with other clients and I suggested we do his last-minute actors headshot outdoors. Of course on the day that we’d arranged it was freezing cold, heavy showers and blowing a mini-gale.

Jay wasn’t put-out and neither was I – so I suggested he come along to my house as I sometimes shoot actors headshots in my garden with reflectors and lights and thought we could sit out the rain hoping we might get lucky with a break in the weather and jump outside. I did this because Jay was really keen to get his shots done quickly, and I was happy to oblige.

Hey and we got lucky with the rain – with clever use of location equipment we managed to make some brilliant warm, sunny photos of Jay for his casting, even though it was actually dull and miserable and cold.

I’m such a huge believer in remaining positive and never giving up and this was so true for Jay’s photoshoot.

Here are two from the hour we had together – Jay was brilliant to work with (I loved the way he followed directions and could go from ‘intense stare” to ‘glowing-smile’ in the blink of an eye), and I wish him all the best in his career.
