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.
The last month has changed a lot for me, I decided to take action and change something in my life. It’s going to be a long road but there is light at the end of the tunnel. I know this saying is a bit cheesy but that’s what what I’m going to try and adopt. I love doing hand lettering designs, it gives a sense of authenticity to and gives it character.
