To my horror I just realised I hadn't blogged about this summer's group portrait shoot at The Roost. Every year a group of (mostly amateur or semi-pro) photographers get together and hire a venue in central London. The Roost (or its sibling, The Perch) is ideal for this as you get three floors worth of different rooms, all individually furnished and stuffed with interesting, weird and wonderful props. Most rooms have huge windows so there is plenty of natural light and I usually don't need to rely on extra lighting equipment. There is always a number of models available but many photographers bring their own. We usually work on a collaboration basis, i.e. nobody gets paid and it's an exchange of time and skills. In the end, models, photographers and designers will have new material for their portfolios.

This year I had only two planned sets, one with the band Last July and the other a collaboration with the dress designer Jezebelle's Boutique, the model Druidess of Midian and the hat designer Off With Her Head.

So, here are a few examples: First off, Last July:

Sacrilege is a new alternative/goth club night held every 3rd Friday of the month at the Q Club, Cambridge.
The website has all the details.
There will also be photos from another photographer soon.

The opening night of Sacrilege last night seems to have been a big success. Excellent turnout, lots of people I hadn't seen in years and obviously the reopened Q Club which holds a lot of fond memories for the local alternative crowd. As was to be expected, the music was rather 1999, which was pretty much the intention.
So yeah, finally an alternative night in Cambridge on a Friday!

I was actually a bit nervous to work with Druidess of Midian because she's a highly experienced and professional model but we immediately got on well and bounced ideas off each other. I felt really comfortable and confident working with both of them (I took some solo shots of her partner while she got ready and then took a series of couple shots) which I think shows up in the results. We are all very pleased with the results.

All shot with available natural light at The Roost.
