Portrait Session photo shoot with musician, public speaker and podcaster Katie Elliott

Recently it was my great pleasure to photograph Katie Elliott for some new press shots… I know Katie as a talented multi-instrumentalist, at the moment she’s perhaps most well known for her piano playing (here’s a Spotify link to her beautiful album of piano music ‘Walking The Edge’ also available on Amazon), but she’s also a podcaster and public speaker who’s picking up a lot of attention. Katie’s company Little Challenges is ‘a place to find ideas, tools and inspiration to make being human a little bit easier’. You can find out information there about her podcasts and also forthcoming book.  Katie asked me if I’d like to do a portrait session… the brief was to take a set of images which would cover all of her various needs. We started with the headphones image above for her podcast.

Model Session : Isabelle Rocks!

When I was asked to do a photo session with an up and coming young model called Isabelle Williams we immediately started pondering locations close to Bristol. Many ideas were thrown around (including reservoir settings), but we settled on the excellent caves in Wotton-under-Edge, which are perfect for model shoots.

Artists Catherine (@Catherinelm) volunteered and we organised a session by a nearby lake in the beautiful Reigate.
