Update #291 - May 2022
20th April 2022 - My first visit to the Whitby Goth weekend in eight years! I was hoping to shoot while I was there and luckily there were several fellow Rogue team members attending. I had the pleasure of working with Bex Wild, Alexia Hart, Haileyquinn and Ellie G.
3rd April 2022 - As a big fan of the TV series Vikings and The Last Kingdom, I've wanted to do a Viking inspired Shield Maiden shoot for so long and Jayne Le Vex was the perefect model. I've entitled these images, "Eagle of Valhalla" and you can find some in the "Dark Fantasy" gallery now, and more over the coming months.
22nd February 2022 - I had the chance of working with Glasow model Dame Diablo, as she paid a very short visit to Birmingham! We did a old school hollywood glamour shoot around Birmingham city center and you can find some new images from this shoot in the "Pin-Up" section.
13th January 2022 - The Station, one of my local Pubs, allowed Skarlett Embers and I to shoot in their back room. A shoot we've entitled "Hell on Heels", which You can find in my "Alternative Fashion" gallery.
28th November 2021 - Today I had my only studio shoot of the year with the fantastic models, Erika Hyde and Declinegothica's longest standing model: Jayne Le Vex. This one had a fetishy feel and was entitled "Neon Redemption".
8th November 2021 - I had my "Blood and Roses" shoot with Skarlett Embers in the ruins of Warstone Lane Cemetery in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter.
17th October 2021 - Today I had my Halloween shoot with the lovely SMSF. We had a great idea to shoot but sadly SMSF's outfit didn't arrive on time and the props we'd bought didn't work, so it was all a bit of a disaster! We did shoot though and although it wasn't our original idea, we did get some good images.
19th September 2021 - I had the journey from hell going to London for my "Ruins of St Dunstan" shoot with Leonie Snow. The train line had engineers working on it and the bus replacements were every two hours! A great shoot but an awful jouney!
1st September 2021 - I have three images of model Amy Aslum published in Rogue Magazine. You can get a copy on Mag Cloud - https://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/2050992?__r=502229&fbclid=IwAR0lrINMHdVDouKqWcVMpEnCSkUmWEhvm0y_AxjiFsaNI9egmHzjQXGa4b4
22nd August 2021 - I had my "Fractured Summer" alternative fashion shoot with the gorgeous SMSF, a model that I can not recommend enough! An absolute gem to work with!
25th July 2021 - I met up with the amazing Erika Hyde again for a shoot entitled "Sweet Peril" which was a mix of lolita, Horror film survivor and Countess Bathory!
17th July 2021 - Over the years I've probably done six or seven studio shoots with the wonderful Li Necro but although we talked about it, we never did a location shoot. Until today! It's been six years since we last met up but our "Pyretic" shoot was just fantastic. Such a great model, a lovely lady and it was so good to work with her again! You can find images from this shoot in my "Alternative Fashion" gallery.
23rd May 2021 - Though heavy Metal band "Rapid Strike" are based in Croatia, the singer Bexie lives in Wolverhampton and has been a longstanding model for Declinegothica, so it was easy for us to get together to shoot some promotion for their new album. This shoot with Bexie was my first studio shoot of the year and I'm looking forward to be able to share some images from this shoot in the coming months.
25th April 2021 - My "Beyond the Veil" location shoot with Amy Asylum was split into two distinct parts, a "light" and "Dark" set. The light images had a ethereal feel with Amy in a green wig and white dress but the dark images are a complete contrast with a demonic look with devil horns! You can find several images from this set now in my "Dark Fantasy" gallery but I may add more in the coming updates, they are great sets!
10th April 2021 - In April I went over to Wolverhampton to work with Miss Unsane. I’ve been watching Miss Unsane’s work with interest as she’s been creating some wonderful work and it was brilliant to finally work with her. You can find some dispersion images with Miss Unsane in my “Dark Fantasy” gallery.
6th April 2021 - My first shoot of 2021, was some alternative fashion with the gorgeous Chloe Ozwell, in Birmingham city centre. You may know Chloe from the brilliant heavy metal band “Sister Shotgun”, who are a favourite band of mine. You can find images from this shoot in my “Alt Fashion” gallery, entitled “Postscards from Home”.
