Bardot's Girl

Bardot's Girl

Last Tuesday I met up with the beautiful Louise Flowers for our first shoot! I first saw Louise at Brighton Fashion Week a few years ago and we have been meaning to work together ever since but we never quite got round to it, until now! :)

We met up and made our way down to the beach for a morning shoot! Here are some of the final images! You can also see the shoot on my website here: www.tomsimmonds.com/bardotsgirl

Hopefully there will be many more shoot to come! :D In the mean time be sure to follow Louise on twitter

The Tiny Trees Project

The Tiny Trees Project

Back in 2012 I had one of my images featured on the front cover of Token Art Magazine, this was an image of a tree in a jar, just a little concept for a photo I through up while bored one day.

But since then the idea of doing a full project based on these kinds of images has always been at the back of my mind. Now that my skeleton project is pretty much complete (save for any odd ideas I have for it) I thought now would be a good time to get started on something new!

Here are some behind the scenes type images for the past couple of days where I have been hard at work getting the first batch of images done for the project! Unlike my last one I won't be restricting myself to one image per week and I won't be making one every week no matter what, unless I feel like it that is. :P

I'll be posting the first set of final images in an upcoming blog post! Be sure to keep your eye out for it! :)

The Cement Works

The Cement Works

Way back, probably about 3 years now I found a location that I wanted to shoot in, however I never quite got round to shooting there. A few weeks ago me and a couple of friends decided to go and explore there and this gave me the opportunity to see if it was actually as shoot worthy as it seemed on google maps haha. As it turned out it was and a couple of weeks later I met up with the lovely Caitlin for a little test shoot there. 

We met up last Friday and made our way to the old abandoned Shoreham Cement Works, it's an amazing location that is begging for photos. If you can stand breathing in possibly cancer causing dust then it's perfect! :D

And now as I am an incredibly efficient person (for a temporary time only I'm sure) here are the final images! :)

Be sure to follow Caitlin on Twitter and Instagram. :)

The Portobello Hotel - Part 1

The Portobello Hotel - Part 1

Back in late January I shot the SS14 campaign images for 
Closet Clothing, you can see the behind the scenes blog post here! I have split the shoot up into two parts for editorial submissions, the following are from the first half and feature the lovely Daisy! This set was featured in the fantastic Spoiler's Hand Magazine, you can see check out the issue by clicking here or the image below! We are on pages 66-71! :)

You can also purchase the issue on MagCloud here!

In the days before releasing this set I though my website could do with a bit of an overhaul so I decided on a wider aspect ratio for my images. You can view the shoot on my updated site by following this link or clicking below! :) 

Here are a selection of images from the shoot!
