untitled #561


On my return to London, I caught up with a former housemate, Stuart, from Catherine Palace*, my home in Reading when I last lived in the UK.

We went out for a drink in Ealing on a Saturday afternoon, where he is completing a film course at the famous Ealing Studios. Afternoon turned into evening, one of his film school colleagues joined us, followed by Stuart's wife, Shelley. Evening turned into night.

At the time, Stuart was casting for the short film he is working on for his course, and told me about a scene in the film for which he would need some still shots that would be hung on a wall in one of the scenes, and asked if I might be willing to shoot them for him.

As you may have guessed, I said yes, and spent a pleasant Sunday at Stuart and Shelley's apartment in Putney, meeting and photographing the lovely Jess and Chris [make-up and styling by Shelley], being force-fed delicious food and cider, and generally enjoying myself.

I've subsequently met up with Jess for dinner and drinks [which was also supposed to include a visit to the National Portrait Gallery, but we got distracted enjoying the Vietnamese meal and easy conversation with two concierges we ended up sharing a table with]; and also met up with other members of the cast and crew for post-shoot drinks in Hammersmith which ended with myself, Chris, Stuart and Shelley catching night buses to our respective homes, with me nursing a monster hangover the next day from the "nightcap" tequila shots Shelley foisted upon us at the end of the night!

As with the photographs of Paige from my previous post, there are more images from this shoot that I hope to edit soon, but these are some of the images selected by Stuart for the scene in his film, 'The Date Temptation'.

*No, we didn't live in a palace, it was just one in a row of terraced houses on Catherine Street, parallel to the Oxford Road, near West Reading station. We had a thing for naming houses we lived in when I was here last: the apartment we rented above an off-license on Ferndale Road in Clapham North became known as Ferndale Academy, due to its proximity to Brixton Academy, and Justin's turntables set up in the corner of our lounge. My last place in Brisbane had the name Casa del Cacto, so named by Nikki for the massive cactus in the front yard. I am yet to come up with anything suitable for my place here. I'm sure it will come with time.

untitled #71


Amidst the frantic post-Christmas, pre-departure period of January, Paige Wilcox commissioned me to shoot portraits of her, which made for a pleasant day of wandering around the Brisbane Botanical Gardens and the Lady Lamington building of the Royal Brisbane Hospital.

Paige was a great model: up for climbing trees, playing dead amongst the tree's roots, and wandering around derelict buildings in her lovely selection of outfits.

These are some of the images she selected from the shoot, and I hope to edit more soon.

My only disappointment that came with the shoot was knowing that we wouldn't have time to do more before I left, as I'm sure we could have collaborated again. But, of course, we intend to anyway, as hopefully she will visit London or nearby Europe in the next year or so, and I'm sure we'll arrange some sort of venture then.

Paige is one of a number of fantastic people I had the chance to meet during my brief sojourn in Brisbane that I miss these days.

In 2007, Vignette Press commissioned me to produce covers for a series of Mini Shots.

Vignette Press still have copies of each issue of series one, as well as series two with cover images by talented illustrator, Rhys McDonald, available from their website.

If you'd like to license any of my existing images, or commission me to create new images for your magazine, book cover, album cover, etc., please feel free to email me at propaganda@bronwenhyde.com
