Connie – Model Photoshoot in Littleport
Connie got in touch with me via Model Mayhem, which is a website for models and photographers to get in touch with each other to collaborate and work on projects together. She mentioned that she would be visiting my area in the next few days and would I like to get some shots with her? Connie mentioned in her message that she is Northern Ireland Model of the year and also a finalist of Miss British empire! Well, I’m always up for shooting, so at very short notice we arranged to meet up and after taking a few shots of her family, we would then do some portfolio work.
We met at The Swan on the River Pub in Littleport, who graciously allowed us to shoot in their main lounge area for the family shots and outside in their lovely garden area for some of the portfolio work. The owners were very interested in the shoot, and they serve good food and drinks so Connie’s family were well looked after while they waited. Obviously the family shots are private, but there’s a handful of shots from the portfolio work we did below. It wasn’t exactly ideal shooting conditions – it was pitch dark at the time and very windy, but you work with what you have and I think we got some nice shots despite the conditions. Connie says she visits family in the area a couple of times per year, so next time I’m hoping we’ll have more lead time to organise a studio shoot.
