DSC9403 12th Oct 2011 Pro Climber Emma Twyford in Da House

 I hadn't seen Emma for a couple of years. In fact the last time I saw her was a British Championship held on a wet and windy Saturday in Blackpool. Bad weather seems to be a reoccurring theme in our shoots! I first photographed Emma Twyford when she was 15. Perhaps that should have read "tried" to photograph her, as pouring rain most definitely stopped play. Torrential rain was once again on...

Kelly  2  3 fused 1st Oct 2011 The Shooting of Miss Kelly

I originally saw Kelly Rennie on the website Model Mayhem sometime last year. I was looking for Models with outstanding athletic physiques that I could incorporate into a multitude of outdoor / action based photo's and there she was, staring back at me from my computer screen, a ready- made manna from heaven.
