Shoot Story: Lauren at Stoke Canon Industrial Estate

A fairly short shoot with Lauren, but we got a lot of photos. Our favourite location - the mostly-abandoned industrial estate in Stoke Canon.

Our first shoot had been great fun – the first modelling shoot for both of us – so we decided to do another fairly quick shoot (about 40 minutes) at our favourite location. At the time it was a mostly-abandoned industrial estate, all nicely rusty. Unfortunately for us, now it’s been renovated, and looks like a much better place to run a business, but not so good for photoshoots.

We started in front of a yellow roller shutter, which made a good background – Lauren was mainly wearing blue, and yellow and blue is a good combination.

The rusty stairs had worked well last time, so we went for them again – taking a bit of care over angles, with the short skirt Lauren was wearing! They make for a wonderfully grungy style.

The wall was quite good, but only briefly. The last photo is just after Lauren realised it was covered in small spiders, which were all deciding she was more interesting to crawl on than a wall. I’d like to say that I stepped in and dealt with the spider situation, but it would be a lie. I’m pretty pathetic when it comes to spiders.

A shipping container worked for a background for some simple portraits, which always work well with Lauren. She’s got this face, you know? It’s a good face.

I grabbed a quick shot from further away as we looked for ideas, which I rather liked – the light behind gave Lauren a bit of a glow.

Well, it’s about this point where we’d start to overload some browsers, so we’ll break for a new page. Lots more of this good face, and more grungy backgrounds on the next page…
