In May I had the pleasure and luck to shoot with Miss Jessica Tremlett. A blonde bombshell if ever there was one. We had arranged to shoot in Southsea in Portsmouth, and were also working with a new Make-up Artist to me called Neringa Bigé. I picked the pair of them up from the salon where Neringa works and we headed down the sea front.
I love to use colour in backgrounds, so my first thought was the blue shutters on the pier, they are a bit grungy from the years of weather and abuse. They worked really well for this shoot as they made Jessica really stand out. Her shock of blonde curls were a real contrast to the bright blue. I wanted to play on the blonde bombshell, so we used Marilyn as reference (naturally) and I encouraged Jessica to play up to the camera. She was very adept at this as you will see in the video below.
The next set of images were at a location I had used way back when, for one of my first ever fashion shoots. A wind shelter on the promenade, I wanted her to give lots of attitude, which seemed to come very naturally to her. Check out the images above, and the video below (watch in HD).
