Devilstone 2015

31 August 2015

So I went to Devilstone festival back in Lithuania again and it was really fun, as always.  You can check pictures from last year in the post on Devilstone 2014. This year there were loads of good rock bands, as well as Katatonia, so there were plenty to hear and plenty dressed up people to take pictures of (definitely wasn't boring this year). I took a lot of pictures again, so take a look at what that weekend was like.

Editorial for Old Tat print magazine and Material Girl magazine online.

It's been over a year since we shot it, but there were so many images from it, that every time I planned to put it on the blog, I got overwhelmed and gave priority to other things I really needed to do. It pretty much took me two days to put this into a post on Behance and finally here (website is next). So sorry I'm so rubbish at keeping up with everything! I now have a bit more time on my hands and sorting out my blog (more often, regular updates for it) is definitely one of the main things on my list. Look forward to a life update post where I'll tell you where I've been mostly gone for half a year.

   When we shot this editorial, it was a bit of a hectic day, because we had many outfits, got ready at one place and then shot at two different locations that required us to take buses or tube. Also, a lot of the outfits took quite a lot of space, where difficult to get into or were surprisingly heavy! But it definitely was very useful to have an experience like that to know what to expect and be prepared for anything in the future shoots. The fashion in this might be a bit different from what I usually do, but I really love these designers and how colourful and fun and dreamy it all is, I've wanted to use a lot of these for a long time! This shoot features Clio Peppiatt, Phiney Pet, Manish Arora, Cassandra Verity Green, Jessica Shaw, Danielle Richards and more.
   I actually had a moodboard for this shoot for like a year or even two before it finally happened, and possible shots for it went through my mind every time I listened to "Alien Observer" by Grouper, which is such a dreamy song. So the story is mostly what's in the song and it's lyrics:
"going to take a spaceship
fly back to the stars
alien observer in a world that isn't mine
"
Except I'd like to think that my alien got the happy ending and even if it was daunting and strange and scary to be stuck on Earth, she was quickly won over by awesome things we have like ice cream, lollipops and trees.
I also have film, polaroid shots and behind the scenes shots, but I'll post those later as this post is already incredibly picture heavy (I added a "read more" button to declutter the main blog page, but there are more images once you click on it).
Let me know what you think of the shoot!



Holland Park Meet Up

14 July 2015

In February Ella Ruth organised a photographer meet up in Holland Park. It was incredibly cold (even if it doesn't seem so), but it was still so lovely to meet so many new photographers and see what they come up with and how they shoot. After spending half a day in a freezing park (which most of the others didn't notice I'm sure, as everyone was so into what they were doing) we went to a pub for some drinks.
I didn't actually take a lot of pictures (mostly backstage images of other people shooting) and I don't know everyone's links, but what I do know is that Ella is really awesome and you should check her pictures. It was so nice to meet her again!
And I also met Mari-Ann Curtis that I knew on the internet for awhile, so it was nice to actually meet her, check out her flickr stream.
I wish more gatherings like these would happen, I'm probably not the one to actually organize something like that myself..

Agne and Agata

31 May 2015

 

Models: Agne and Agata @ Ruta model management
Make up: Dovile Tiriute

Back in December I went back to Lithuania for few weeks to spend the holidays with my family and see my friends (and it was the best as usually), and I was doing much during then, but I did manage to squeeze in a test shoot with these two lovely new faces a few days after Christmas. My sister had some make up courses (and has been doing quite well since then!), so I used the opportunity and had her practice with me on the shoot. It's going to be pretty useful to have a make up artist so near when I go back to Lithuania again!

Which make up look is your favorite?
I always love a bit of sixties/ Twiggy inspired make up, and the smoky eye + pink glitter look towards the end of the post is another unexpected outcome I really liked!

teenage witch

30 April 2015

It's a story about a teenage witch, who was so excited by all her new abilities, that she cast too many spells and brought on storms and mists upon her town. She made beauty and love potions and impatiently drank them all without any worry, but her recklessness caused strange mushrooms to grow from her pretty locks.

We did this shoot back in Lithuania, in the beginning of Autumn (or end of summer?), so I'm really back-logged with all the shoots, sorry! I have a part time job and it's been quite busy there past few months...

Editorial came out in Superhero magazine, you can take a look at the feature here.
MUA: Greta Remeikyte
Model: Ruta Vaketaite

Crystal necklaces were kindly lent by Make Heads Turn.  

Some of the images are taken on film with my Canon AE-1
