Well it's been a busy week here at House of Denham and I haven't been entirely sure what to write to you all about. Between work and a lot of bleak weather I haven't had much of a chance to get my camera out this week but then I had a brainwave and have decided to introduce a new regular post called: Fashion Friday. So I now hereby declare the last Friday of the month to be FASHION FRIDAY! Got it? Great.
So with no further ado I've decided to focus this week's #FF on the AW15 collection I photographer for Leren Connor last winter that is finally going on sale! I did two main shoots for this collection and small studio shoot and the large editorial photo story Rules Breed Rebels. Now that I have plenty of time to reflect on these photos I'm really pleased to say that I consider these to be some of my best work and feel that both shoots have held up well and it's great to see a resurgence of my pictures popping up on social media.
The concept of Rules Breed Rebels was built up around the story of a young, tempestuous love affair and was heavily influenced by the idea of androgyny (hence the 2 female models) and old school British glamour. which is why it was wonderful to get access to some vintage cars and buildings for our locations. We enlisted model Honor Bentley as we loved her wispy, dead-pan looks and boyish frame and model-come-dancer Amy Wells who we thought brought a vulnerable, ballerina like quality to the idea and helped inject some powerful movement and expression to the photos.
By contrast the small campaign shoot we just did inside our old Banks Mill Studio and we kept this modern and minimal with one of my favourite models Sally Walkers whose natural grace and ease lend a sophistication to the photos. Add a big ass fan and the shoot just became easy. These are still some of my favourite photos.
This collection goes on sale in the first week of December and will be available on Etsy. To view the whole collection just head over to lerenconnor.co.uk. I hope you enjoy and as always please like and comment below. Auf Wiedersehen! x
