Spring 2018

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

In this Spring update, you'll find new images with the brilliant models Phoenix Winters, Erika Hyde, Roxy Ruin, Jayne Le Vex, Vixen Minerva and a new model to the team Shelby Mustang.

In February, I got together with three old friends that have supported Declinegothica through more years than I'm sure they'd like to admit, Near Miss Di Zaster, Jayne Le Vex and Roxy Ruin. It was brilliant fun to get them all in the studio together again and we had a ball creating some of the new images you can find below.

If you follow me on any of my social media sites, you probably know I've had a few single covers released recently. The first was for my old friend singer Lady Sakara for her brilliant new song "Shut your Eyes". The cover features Jayne Le Vex and she was suitably impressed to be featured on the artwork and the accompaning video which is excellent. More recently, "The Fear Inside" has been released by local Goth rockers Among The Echoes and features an old image I reworked of the beautiful Emily Strange. Both are available through iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

I'll be back in the Summer with new images from Phoenix Winters, Erika Hyde, Chloe Ozwell, Shelby Mustang and Near Miss Di Zaster.
