Summer 2016

Welcome to another update of Declinegothica, the online portfolio of Birmingham photographer and digital artist, Dave Charsley.

In this Summer update of Declinegothica I have new images with Daisy Chainsaw, Emily Strange, Aimee L'amour and a new model to the team, Wolverhampton model Elle LeBelle. .

In April I got to together with the lovely Emily Strange and a new model, who's work I'd been admiring for a while, Elle LeBelle. We did the shoot in Wolverhampton at Dark Lens Towers and as usual, the owner Daz made us feel totally at home. We had no theme for this one but we created some Cosplay and a multitude of different looks and styles, which you can see in the Dark Fantasy Gallery


Emily Strange, Dave Charsley and Elle LeBelle - "Survivor" shoot - April 2016.




This Spring saw the return of the Midland's infamous "Funeral Nation" club, originally held in Dudley but now relocated to the COGS Steampunk bar in Birmingham's city center. It was over ten years ago, when I used to produce the original club's advertisements, so it was nice to work with the team again on some new material and I wish them the best of luck with their new venture!

I'll be back sometime in the Autumn with more images from my wonderful team of models.
