Model: Ed Styles

It's always a nice day in the studio when you get to kick back and relax and photograph your brother.

After me and Ed just had our hair cut... feeling nice and trimmed we felt the need to get some new photos to match.

It had been far too long since the last shoot so why the hell not...

Dynamo Dragons 2011/2012 Shoot

Alex Styles Photography have recently sponsered Dyanmo Dragons F.C.

Last week we shot Dynamo Dragons football team head shots in the studio.

As part of the team I couldn't wait to get the lads in for some head shots. I have had plenty of stick over the last couple of seasons about my photography company, however the lads were dying to get in front of the camera.

Everyone had a great time and the shots look awesome.

We wanted to create a very Dynamic edgy image from each player.

See the results for yourself...

Alex Styles Photography - Video Shoot

Today we shot a look book styled video shoot with model Kelly Dickson.

We shot the video with a Canon 550d and hired 3 x Dedo Lights for lighting.
Kelly was great in front of the camera, and considering it was her first Video shoot the results are fantastic.

We also shot some behind the scenes images from the day.

Video Coming Soon....

The Royal Wedding

Alex Styles Photography recently shot the Uniforms that were used for The Royal Wedding this year.

It has been kept under wraps until now, due to how much of a high profiled event the day was. If any of the images were leaked to the press etc there would have been outrage.

We had only 2 hours to shoot the garments before they were whisked back to Westminster Abbey.

The images were shot 2 weeks before the big day. We only received the e-mail this morning to say we now have kind permission from Kashket and Partners to use the images for our portfolio.

Here are some of the final shots from the day.

Shoot: Monika T

Today we shot Monika T as part of a new company I'm in the middle of setting up with my good friend David Hall.

We want to start working with real high end fashion and professional models, and what a way to start.

I have wanted to shoot Monika for a while and finally after a long wait yesterday we got the chance and boy did she rock the shoot.

After every frame we were so amazed with the variety of shots we had to choose from. Monika new exactly from the start just how to work the camera and make that wow factor image.

She is so professional and a pleasure to work with.... Highly recommended.

We shot everything with the Hasselblad, tethered via Phocus. At times it was painfully slow due to my slow mac and the humongous file size at 90MB per image. In total we shot over 20GB of stuff :/ EEK !!

Check out some of the best shots.

Shoot: Hasselblad

WOW.... Ok.... So where do I start.

My good friend David Hall has just purchased something that could change lives...
The New Hasselblad H4D 31+ with 80mm lens.

After a long hard 6 weeks of waiting it finally arrived and boy did it deliver. We had the pleasure of testing it out on 2 amazing models. (Hope Rosemary and Amy Kirkpatrick)

The attention to detail the camera gives is out of this world, from skin tones to crisp details, it really makes our images stand out from the crowd.

The images were shot for The Hanging Rail Market which is on today in Birmingham, check out the link on Facebook for more info...

Check out a few shots from the day.

Studio Decor...

We decided to add some more frames to the studio. Although the walls are like 10,000 years old and crumble if you even touch them.. we decided to go ahead anyway.

It's great to show our clients some of our high end work and although the website is great for this, you can never go wrong with a high quality print in a nice gallery style frame.

See what you think.

Shoot: Jes Anarchi

WOW.... what an Awesome shoot with Jes Anarchi.

Jes hasn't modelled for over 6 months, yet she rocked the shoot like she'd been front cover of NME the day before.

I have been wanting to shoot Jes ever since I began in the photography world. Even though she has a crazy busy Rock N Roll lifestyle, the day finally came.

She reminded me of a cross between Avril Lavigne, The Olsen Twins and Jennifer Aniston.... so you know that can only be a good thing.

Check out some pics from the day.

Shoot: Marilyn Monroe

Last week Alex Styles Photography shot a series of hair shots for a Francesco Group colour competition.

Each of the girls got to cut and colour their own style and the theme was 50's.

None of the girls were professional models, however they all worked really well in front of the camera.

We shot this one girl (Emily) who's mood board was mainly made up of Monroe pics, I don't think the outcome is too far off reality.

As many of you already know over Christmas I got the chance to assist the great fashion photographer Rankin.

As Rankin is one of my all time photography idols it was such a great opportunity to see how he works.

The shoot was for Swatch watches and was shot in a large warehouse in west london. The shoot took place over 3 days. We shot all the latest ad campaign stuff and also a tv commercial.

The budget for the shoot must of been massive as my first job was to go to the local Tesco and buy 7 Bins and 200 Coat Hangers which came to around £124.00. Also to finish each day we had as much pizza as you could eat.... yummy. (Images for proof)

Apart from making coffee for most of the day, I did get a chance to get right in the action and support the main lighting rigs and reflection etc.

On the day Rankin shot a range of top models and the images looked awesome. Everything was shot tethered to Capture One. The client could therefore see exactly how the images were looking as they were shot.

Here are a few iPhone snaps from the day.
