Angel White, professional model - photoshoot in Bean Coffee, 20 Chapel Street

I just love taking photos – be it commercial, motorsport or product. The middle one is probably the oddest out the lot, as essentially there’s only a few variables you can control.

With studio photography that serendipity is lost. The action needs to come from the model and the model needs directing and that’s the challenging bit for me. Most other types of photography is pretty much a lone event, with you, the camera and the scenery – all you have to do is concentrate on the thing in-front of you and the technical elements of the camera.


When you’ve got a model standing waiting for instructions the situation becomes a lot more complicated. Now, not only do you need to worry about the location and technical elements you also need to think about the person who’s standing there. A person who can get bored if you’re looking at the pictures you’ve taken or might not even speak the same language as you.

There are two ways of getting around this in the first instance. First off use an experienced professional model. They’ll pull all the moves while you get used to new equipment. The next way is to have a person helping – but make sure you’re prepared. Know what you want before you get into the studio. Every second is going to be costing you money.
