Cas got in contact with me over Twitter, he recently released an EP called Russian Roulette which is about a last chance to love. He saw the idea of Russian Roulette as an old fashion game that keeps repeating itself and he wanted that represented for the cover artwork, mixed with the idea of love. Below is the artwork that I produced for him, alongside the other idea that he also liked. He went with the first idea as he believed that fully conveyed what he was imagining in his head, he believed that ’ it was perfect and exactly what I imagined ‘. I’m currently working on his next cover artwork for ’ Dem Man ‘.
I met Lucas through Instagram and he wanted some shots for his modelling portfolio, he’s with a modelling agency based in London. He’s been a profesional model for the last year at the age of 18 ( I was shocked at his age too! ). He came across very professional and was clearly a natural in front of the camera, this inevitably made my job easier. He wanted a clean, minimalistic look to his portraits. This meant looking for places that were neutral in colours or pastel colours. Two below are two of his favourite shots and mine, the rest will be up on my home page. We’ve agreed to work again and shoot in London. If you would like to book Lucas for anything then feel free to drop him a message on his Instagram: lucaszihao
This was one of my most enjoyable shoots, it was a pleasure to meet Pebo and we’ve agreed to explore again next week. He was starting up a new clothing line in Cardiff so he needed shots of himself as well as the clothing, he broke into the modelling industry last year and hasn’t looked back ever since. He’s always had a passion for fashion and believes that there is a gap in the streetwear market in Cardiff, I agreed with him as I started my own clothing line.
He wanted a grime look to his images but still wanted some style to them. He was extremely happy with the images and is going to use them for his business when it launches in May.
