Get A Little Bit Of Bourbon In Ya, Get A Little Bit Suburban And Go Crazy

all clothes and jewellery, either vintage or model’s own // Model – Katie Parker at Whips and Furs
Here is another instalment of all the photos I took with Katie during our weekend of full-on photographic adventure in Barry, just outside Cardiff. We found the most amazing brick wall (in a forest, of all places) that had some epic light, and we set up camp there for hours, with only a few people and a couple of dogs disturbing our makeshift creative studio. At one point poor Katie did get accosted by a lecherous drunk outside of a Coral in the city centre, but after teaching him some manners it was all straight-sailing from there! I don’t know what it is with bald, midget football fans who spend their Friday mornings drinking lager outside of a betting shop that makes them think they are such an attractive prospect, but they sure do take the piss.
I’m always looking for new models around the Cardiff/West Wales area, so if you or anyone you know would like to do a shoot with me then just hit me up at contactpersephone@gmail,com and we can hook up sometime and take pictures. I’m really itching to meet more bloggers, models, photographers and creative people lately. So if you know of anyone in the area, let me know!

Lovely photos I wish I lived near you so we could collaborate on anything to be honest! I only get dog walkers when I'm taking outfit photos but its always nice to get a cute Labrador randomly bounding into the shot. She has a wonderful face and hair, the clothes are perfect!!

I love Katie's hair colour, eye makeup and lace blouse. Alas, I've never been to your side of the pond and am not worthy of your photographic talents. The photographs you took of Katie are beautiful.

The pics are awesome, your friend's hair is so cool and bold! What an awful experience to be approached by a drunkie though, I can relate...
