It’s always great working on fashion shoots but even better when you put your models in front of 60K people! Well that’s what we did for this year Aston Villa Catalogue shoot. Armed with my team of models and assistance we roamed around Villa Park grabbing images of our models with proper atmosphere behind us.
The second phase of the photo shoot wasn’t in 40K people but it as still pretty cool. Again armed with my assistance we made our way to Aston Villa’s training ground, ‘Bodymore Heath’ just outside of Sutton Coldfield to shoot with a variety of players during their training.
Take a look at some of my favourite images. If your a Aston Villa fan and would like a copy of the 2013 catalogue make sure you register your details for one

CITY fashionistas were out in force as Style Birmingham Live wowed audiences with a gold standard offering.
Olympic champion Greg Rutherford strutted his stuff down the catwalk at the Mailbox as part of the sell-out event.
Former Love Actually star and newly-wed Martine McCutcheon hosted all of the five day shows and VIP event on Saturday.
More than 3,000 fashion followers watched models showed off the latest autumn and winter styles from Harvey Nichols, the Bullring, M&S , House of Fraser and for the first time Selfridges.
Greg, who has become a sex symbol since winning gold in the long jump in the London games, received loud cheers when he graced the stage.
Review: Birmingham Mail
There is nothing better than doing a wedding or family lifestyle shoot. Normally I am faced with people who aren’t normal in front of the lens and are normal quite understandably nervous.
This shoot saw me in Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield with a family who were the opposite! they were only professional models, family lifestyle models to be exact.
how cute is this little guy!
I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the biggest names in showbiz but when it all comes down to it I just love getting on the streets looking for those people with extraordinary looks styles and just simple amazing to capture.
I am a big sucker for big bold styles especially when it comes to hair. I was out on the street of Birmingham when I came across an office worker on her break, in a hurry I was able to grab one shot of her which I am very pleased with.
I have applied a small touch up and added a vintage style effect which just makes the image pop.
I will however let you be the judge, should this girl jack her day job and become a model?
