As Senior Designer and Art Director at Freestyle Publications I conducted almost 50 monthly cover feature photoshoots for international gadget and lifestyle magazine Boys Toys. 

 

Working with a professional photographer, stylist and models, both in the studio and on location, I devised a vast array of lead feature concepts. This is one of my favourite shoots.

 

Celebrating all things British, the original plan for this punk-themed studio shoot was to use a Union Jack flag as a backdrop, but the flag was too small. The photography studio was based inside a disused print works, so I quickly hit on the idea of using locations in and around the building for a more urban and edgy shoot.

The iconic but extremely kitsch (and aptly-named) 'Thunderbird' mansion in Poole, Dorset, provided an abundance of ideal locations for each shot of a cover shoot for Boys Toys magazine. Statuesque Czech catwalk model Leni Novacova's striking features were enhanced with a range of make-up effects for a distinctly science fiction vibe.
