This year sees the beginning of something quite spectacular for O-Ten Photography. I have just realised that it has been nearly 10 years since I began O-Ten and what a ride it has been! I have met many amazing people and introduced many to modelling who have gone on to do very well for themselves.
Launching O-Ten officially in 2009 with the O-Ten Live event where many ventured in front of the camera for the very first time which gave them huge amounts of confidence to help them go for their dreams and goals in life. I have always loved to help people find themselves and to them the confidence they need to be the person they want to be.
In 2010 I was approached by OMD to shoot their comeback album 'History Of Modern', they came to me twice that year and we created some amazing photos together which were presented in their album, live programmes and DVDs.
I also put together an exhibition of these OMD photos where you could personally meet Andy McCluskey as he opened the event in person.
To all the professional and new models who have come through my door, it has been fun to meet you and to create some amazing shots for you. I always believe that I can get 'the' shot of anyone who gets in front of my camera.
Now back to 2018 and the start begins with the shooting of another music video for She's Got Claws. She is about to release her second album (War Torn) in March so is now putting together a mood board to promote this album. The song is called Ceasefire and it is going to be shot on location. I shot her promo photos in November 2017 and her album cover is one of my photos.
Also last year OMD came back to me to shoot for their album The Punishment Of Luxury, so if you are a band or artist please get in touch so we can put some ideas together to create something spectacular for you too.
