Abergavenny Vintage Toy & Car Market.

These images were taken last year at the vintage toy and car market in Abergavenny. The show hosted dozens of vintage vehicles, toy stalls and dioramas. It is an annual event and I have attended 3 years in a row as there’s always something interesting to photograph.

This series of images was presented as a documentary project for university and earned a 1st.

Heroes & Villains: Black Cat

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.

Heroes & Villains: Harley Quinn

As a continuous project I have been working with people to create images based on fictional characters. The images in this post are of Harley Quinn, a character from DC Comics Batman series.


The character first appeared in Batman: The Animated Series S1 E22 “Jokers Favour”

Scowl Harley

The above images were shot on HP5+ Monochrome film, and processed through photoshop. The portrait format image was shot on a Zorki 4 Rangefinder camera, and the square format image was shot using a Kiev60 Medium format SLR.

the makeup and costume were provided and styled by the model as it was a previous halloween costume. the props were my own except for the mallet. That was made by an A-level student at the college where the photoshoot took place.
