February was much more colourful and interesting in real life.

I have popped up for air from Christmas madness/fear/disorder to post my latest portraiture/fashion shoot. I was working for the first time with Vicky. Vicky wants to work professionally within the modeling industry and I dare say she will. If you want to work with her you can contact her here.
We battled against the cold and lack of bridges and I think we came up with some pretty good shots. It is my favourite potraiture shoot to date so I’m definitely pleased.
Another photography inspiration this week. I’m mainly working on photography projects at the moment so accordingly it is this kind of imagery that is interesting me the most.
Anyway on to the photos; American photographer Mike Brodie left home as a teenager to ride the rails. He documented his travels and produced many beautiful images, such as the one shown above. I’ve never been much of a documentary photographer so I find I am always super impressed by anyone is talented in that field. Mike Brodies work is well worth seeking out beyond the images I have provided. His composition, portraits, use of colour and depictions of landscapes are inspiring to any photographer regardless of their usual subject matter.
Oh and the update: I have a job interview tomorrow. It is something that might be good for me on many levels so… fingers crossed.
Northside Bridge, Workington.
These pictures were taken in Workington, Cumbria. Cumbria recently faced record breaking rainfall resulting in flooding throughout the region.Some of Workingtons bridges were washed away entirely. Northside Bridge was an important main road for the town. When it fell it split the town in two.
I managed to get near the infamous bridge. It is so strange to see in person, it seems like something from a dream. The bridge was something we all took for granted – we used it everyday and thought little of its fragility – and now its gone. Very odd times.

Not much this week – I’ve been editing pictures for other projects so not much time to work on older photographs. I found some old images I took around Workington and near the Steelworks. Most need re-edited (not keen on the edit I did at the time, too saturated and dark). Oh well back to pixel shifting….
