As some of you know, I went to Bratislava in November 2017 because I had work in a exhibition there, so here’s the full story!
Mamiya RB67 Ilford HP5+
Wales Finest. Welsh open hairdressing and beauty championship. These images were shot behind the scenes at the Wales Finest Open Hairdressing and beauty championships in June 2015
“I’ve been at apprenticing at physical graffiti just over a year now.
I got my first tattoo at 18 and from that day I wanted to pursue tattooing.
My inspiration varies from day to day. It can come from being outdoors amongst nature or from looking at great art masters like di Vinci and so on.
I really enjoy tattooing darker tattoos, skulls get my full attention.”

A few days ago I had a burst of creativity, one of my regular models wanted her hair styled like Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.
The style was a mix of techniques which was emphasised by her ombré hair. The mix of red and blonde was perfect for the shoot.
The location we used was a plain of unused ground on top of the valley between Merthyr Tydfil and Fochriw, a stones throw from the open cast mine.
The outfit and styling were a collaboration of our combined efforts, mainly a skirt and assorted scarves used to achieve a very natural and earthy aesthetic, and therefore giving of a very Daenerys vibe.
Black Cat is a character from the Marvel Comics universe. Her first appearance was in The Amazing Spiderman #194 (July 1979)
Her abilities and skill set allow her to be an excellent burglar as she has advanced gymnastic abilities and is an expert martial artist. These skill combined with a superhuman sense of smell and night vision and a few gadgets make her a formidable character.
This was actually the first shoot in the Heroes & Villains series. As with Harley Quinn, images were shot on both analogue film and digital formats.
Unfortunately however , the digital files were lost as a result of a failed hard drive.
All the surviving shots were taken on a Mamiya C220 Medium format TLR camera using studio lighting. The lighting set up was in order for me to create graphic, High contrast images for half of the set and then strong low key images for the other half.
