hasselblad first studio shots

All these were shot on my Hasselblad 500 c/m with a mix of Fuji Instant Film FP-100C Colour gloss, ilford delta 100 and 400 plus kodak ektar 100 colour film. 
With the model Elaine Ford and make up by Judit Soltesz. 

Americana I caught this one whilst setting up a test shot I only got a polaroid of this but I thought it worked really well. 

One of the fun things about shooting on film is the 2.30 min you have to wait for the polaroid to develop so while I was waiting we shot a few digital pics which are the ones below. its really funny because i really like these pics but its the soul that's missing I know that sounds really strange but I think there is something missing and that thing i've only ever found in film.

what happens when you use a hassleblad h4d to shoot a music festival?

So a couple of weeks ago I got the privilege to run some great photographers for the new festival in Dundee called Carnival 56 and this took quite alot of my time and so i didn't get to shoot as much as I would have liked to but I was lucky enough to be allowed on stage for Rudimentals headline set and I thought it would be a good time to crack out the hassy and here are some of the pics:

Its safe to say it was alot of fun using the hassy!!!!

6 months with my Hasselblad h4d

I've now had my Hasselblad for 6 months and I thought I would write up a few observations about it. To start - I have pretty much my whole life wanted a Hasselblad I would say I do have mild GAS (gear acquisition syndrom) in the lightest most un-serious way!  having said that i did just clear out my collection of totally broken unusable cameras (about 15) which i really didn't want to throw away but couldn't be bothered to fix as they were pretty much in an horrific state! Thats not including the 40 something actual working cameras I have but anyway...

So I obviously want the Hasselblad h6d but didnt have £35k to spend so I ended up getting the h4d 40 with an 80m lens and 2 batteries within the budget I had.

There are many reasons why I wanted a Hasselblad but the main one was the fact that you get a medium format look from a medium format camera and its impossible to replicate that with a dslr and I had a lot of misses with my film hassy so was keen to look at the digital…

an epic shoot day

so a few weeks ago I had a free day and I wanted to see how many models I could shoot in a day. The reasoning behind this is because im well into planning a new book and I want to create alot of images for the book but I want to do it in quite a precise way. And so I enlisted the help of an epic team - these guys: @ingridperegrina_makeup @laurenadessimua @kim_boyd_mua @jennaclaytonmua @leona.provence @ellie_mccallumm @katmacmellon @ionacrawford

And we shot 17 models in one day took over 4000 images and I spent quite a long time editing as a result! But here are a few of the images! Hit up my instagram to see loads more!!! :
