Last Wednesday I was involved in photographing a Peaky Blinders styled shoot at Lock 91 in Manchester. The shoot was organised and styled by Fran and Jed from White Weddings and Events who are also leaders in the industry when it comes to men and weddings. Their innovative Man Creche has been a complete hit with grooms this year. If you haven't yet seen Peaky Blinders yet, (which I haven't) they announced yesterday that they are starting to shoot the third series next week according to The Independent.
Jed and Fran sourced our fabulous models (Jason, Kris and Thomas) and the suits were provided by Groom Hire in Manchester. They also scouted out the location. Lock 91 was perfect for the shoot although rather dark for my liking in terms of the photography so I decided to take my studio lighting and at the last minute grabbed a bag of gel's and some gaffa tape. Thank god I did as the warm gel I used created just the atmosphere I had envisaged in my mind.
Our MUA and stylist Danielle set about getting the guys ready while I set up my equipment, taped up lights and moved lots of stuff that didn't fit the scene from the bar. Then we got down to shooting. And boy am I pleased with the results. Check out the video below or just scroll through the pictures. I think you will agree everyone did an amazing job and I have been dying to share these with the world!!! Enjoy!!
And now for some images of the Peaky Blinders Lads. Thank you for all your hard work!!!
