City at Night – Test Shoot
This test shoot was loosely based around the theme of city lights, drawing influence from 2011’s cult hit Drive. The theme is something I have always wanted to do, and the chance to work with Ross Davidson, a model represented by Leeds based Catwalk Model Agency was the perfect opportunity.
Having lived in Leeds city centre for two years, I already had a few locations in mind. I wanted to have a contrast between the fluorescent lights, dimly lit alleyways and tunnels to portray how different a city at night can be. Joining me on the test shoot was creative makeup artist Anna Stephenson, who helped provide the look we were going for. The shoot was a great success – hours felt like minutes! We managed to achieve a variety of urban looks at a number of locations, using graffiti as an interesting backdrop, the steps at Leeds Town Hall and the bright, florescent lights at Leeds Trinity.
Be sure to check out part two of this collection, which will be a more conceptual, dark theme – involving an abandoned car park and slightly less clothes…watch this space.
