Woolton Hall Shoot

Whilst on holiday recently I was thinking that I hadn’t been out with the camera of late so started researching some possibilities. I can’t remember quite how, but I stumbled upon a shoot being planned at Woolton Hall in Liverpool organised by John Ayliffe. Woolton Hall is a Grade I listed building, originally built in 1704 but it is now sadly in a very poor state of repair. The networking event itself is designed to get photographers, models, costumiers and make-up artists together to initially create images and to then develop ongoing partnerships. There were fifteen models, ten photographers and two MUAs in attendance and John paired people up for 45 minute slots where they would work together 1-2-1. The event was not a workshop, nor was training, assistance and any hands-on help the norm (I’m sure you could ask though!). I worked with six models with varying degrees of experience in several rooms within the decaying hall and created some memorable images which have been shared with all involved. The light (or lack of it) meant pushing ISOs quite high at times and also using an off camera flash & brolly. Below are some of the images captured on the day – more can be found here.
