Film Noir shoot

Lady Medusa and Christopher Hawkins join forces for a double shoot full of visually amazing acting. Both are phenomenal performers, and years of experience. 

Both have already proven themselves photogenically.  One of my photographs of Chris was shortlisted and hung in the Olive Cotton portrait prize in 2012, while my photographs of Lady Medusa have also been published. 


We will use a range of props and harsh directional lighting while setting up some dramatic scenes. We will draw our inspiration from the 40's & 50's black and white film noir movie genre. 

The term 'Noir' comes from the French for 'Black Film'. We will be working with low keys and unbalanced compositions. Drama and emotions run high in erotically charged scenes between the heroin and the private detective. 

Bring some props and add them to our shoots. 

These two models are amongst my favourite to shoot because of their acting ability. This will be a fantastic shoot guaranteed to please.
