A few weeks ago we had a great day in the studio with a select number of students for one of our popular Studio Lighting Courses!
The course is aimed as an introduction to those who want to learn the basics about studio lighting and working with a model, we look at high key lighting through to low key and learn some great techniques that can be applied at home with even the most basic lighting set up to get great results
Our truly amazing model Daisy Wheltor was a joy to work with (she also just won the title of Miss Teen Great Britain 2012!!) and to be honest she made it far too easy for the students
Below are some behind the scenes from the day and a final picture from one of the students, John Howcroft.
We have a whole list of new courses and course dates available on our website, from Studio Lighting to Glamour, Boudoir and finally even FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY!!
These courses book up quickly as we only take a max of 6 students, so book in quickly to secure your place, perhaps a great Christmas gift idea!
More Courses-Book Here
And the final result! Well done to John and all the other students!

At Cherry Red Studios we have so much fun with all the amazing families we meet each week, what we love is how each family bring their own energy and personality to the photo shoot.
Some families want a more formal photo shoot and some just want to play!
Have a look at just a few of the fun family photos we have take this year alone!
So if you are thinking about what would make a great gift for Nan’s birthday or Wedding Anniversary or even… dare we say it…. Christmas!! Then why not bring the whole gang along to to Cherry Red Studios in Surrey and let us capture some great memories for you!

Back in December Jamie and I were invited to photograph the delectable Mr Ken Dee at his show in Aldershot, Hampshire www.mrkendee.com
Mr Ken Dee is a female impersonator and is a regular up at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and in my humble opinion is a top notch comedian, we had far too much fun for it to be classed as work!!
We love to challenge ourselves with different photographic opportunities and theatrical photography is up there with the best of the them when it comes to challenges!
We were also very privileged to gain access to Kens dressing room to capture some of the transformation.
Mr Ken Dee & Company will be appearing at the Princes Hall on Saturday 25th February 2012, with proceeds in aid of Frimley Park Hospital Breast Care Unit & The Mayor of Rushmoor’s Charities.
So if you fancy a fun and cheeky night out, go and and meet MR KEN DEE x

The location was at a fab place called Lassco, which is a antiques and curiosities outlet in London.
A big Thanks to my friend Dominique for getting us in there. The day went well, and I learnt allot from it all. I had an amazing hair/makeup artist (Emma Boyce), and as you can see she did a great job.
Juliet the model also made it easy for me, being very proffessional and easy to work with. So a big thanks to everyone involved and I hope you like the shots.

A couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of shooting the new collection by Leeanne Ripley-Garrett called Fairytale Emotions.
We only had a few weeks to get the team together and find the perfect location for the story of the shoot.
Leeanne found the perfect venue, Hall Place in Bexley, Kent which is a 15th Century Tudor Manor House, which has been beautifully preserved and all its original feature remain.
Once I saw the venue, I knew exactly the style I wanted to achieve and I put together a short shot list from my memory of the location ( I shot a wedding there many years ago!)
The look and feel of the venue suited Leeannes “Fairytale Emotions” theme really well and I liked the idea of using the models to loosely emulate Suits of Amour, based around the location.
We chose two lovely models, Ana and Laurie who we knew had great performance skills as well as being good models and great team for hair and make-up.
I also brought along two assistants who have completed their work experience with me at the studio, believe me, there is no better work experience than being out on location for a full fashion shoot!!
I hope you like the images we created, and enjoy the sneaky peek at the behind the scenes action!
