Derelict Adventure Day 02

I could probably write a short book on these days out, but along with a couple magazine articles on the horizon I’ll try to keep it short. So my 2nd time heading out into the derelict building of the Uk alongside a new friend and fellow photographer Richard P Walton, this time we managed to find a location that was about an hour away from each of us. A few weeks prior I had put out a casting call which had a nice response and gave us lots of options of who to take with us. On day one we were joined by Nadia, Matthew and Scarlett. I got an awful lot done in the morning, some gritty fashion with Matthew, then some nice gothic western vintage saloon style images with Nadia alongside Matthew (I don’t know if that is an actual style), and finally some Avant Garde fashion style images with Scarlett with a stunning corset and dress supplied by Anna Dixon AKA Rumpelstiltskin Costumiers (Red Brick Building, Glastonbury). As Scarlett and Matthew had to head off a little early, Nadia stayed with us for the afternoon where I managed to shoot some portraits with a beautiful headpiece sent down to photograph for Cara at Hysteria Machine, she pretty much gives me free license to create whatever I want with the images, so half a bag of flour later I had a nice little creative portrait, and possible a competition piece ahead of January 2016. Richie put together some interesting work that day too, levitation images, which I had not seen done before, you can learn so much from going out shooting in pairs, every photographer works in such a different way and style, and on day 2 I did have a little crack at it myself with a man in a Sackmask suspended by chains image (well it was Halloween).

Back to sunny Burnham-on-Sea for the evening with Richard, a bloody good curry deal, a couple pints of beer and chatting about photography long into the night before heading back out the next morning where we were lucky enough to be joined by Malcolm who also came to our first Derelict Adventure Day. As we only had Malcolm with us and Richard was keen to continue his levitation images I offered my quite exquisite modelling services, opened up my trust suitcase which I take to ever shoot and before we knew it we had cobbled together some pretty sweet Wild West styled outfits (My outfit was actually not too far off my normal every day attire if truth be known). A cracking couple of days out in the derelict, and now we begin our search for the location of Derelict Adventure Day 03….2015-10-21 19.34.44
