It’s been quite a while since I last updated – purely because I’ve been keeping so busy, but I thought it was time for a new blog post off the back of a recent group shoot I attended / helped with. Instead of doing my usual review of the day I thought I’d change it up a bit, and write a little article. This one’s called “Why group photo shoots are excellent”. Read on!

All photographs in this article are (c) Nick Tsiatinis and were taken at Bodyline Studio on the 23rd of February.. Hair by Melanie Rhodes and makeup by Simone Cattell (unless otherwise specified).

DaniMarie at Ariane Studio, Tamworth

On Saturday I took part in a group model shoot at Ariane Studio in Tamworth that I had arranged for me and a group of photographers from a forum I participate in.

The object of the day was to give lighting tuition to the guys who had not been in a studio before, and to give all of us the chance to photograph a model in the studio.

(More after the break – including images which are not safe for workplace viewing)

Industrial Estate Headshots!

At the weekend I had arranged a model day for myself and a few friends from a photography thread I run. Whilst we were waiting for the model to arrive, we ventured into the industrial estate where the studio was, and I decided to try out my new 100mm L macro lens. The results were a little impressive!

Winter Family Portrait – On Location Shoot in the Snow!

I was recently asked by one of my previous brides to do a portrait shoot as a christening present for one of her bridesmaids (must have been a happy customer!).
