Bloody Woman!

Sarah-Jane is a mysterious model. She never shows her face in any of her shoots (something to do with being employed at a school where she will be expelled if her "hobby" is ever revealed). The basic practicality of keeping her ID a secret resulted in a set of incredibly sinister shots.

Anyway, if you ever wondered how much blood it takes to completely cover a female, I can now inform you that it is a lot!

Diseased Nurse

Living Dead Girl (aka Jane) is a regular client at Horrify Me, and also one of the more inventive clients that we have. Her amazing creativity runs wild whenever she books a shoot with us. This time she created this wonderfully disgusting nurse character, who is suffering from a brutal unknown disease that is crawling up her body and has so far reached halfway up her face. With just her eyes and forehead left to look pretty, the rest of her is just a merciless mess of boils, warts, lesions, scabs, and other assorted nasties. Frankly this creation is awesome!

The Bloody Art Nude

There's quite a difference between covering someone in blood and creating a "costume" with blood. The idea here was to cover Jo so completely that there would be virtually no actual skin on show, except her face. It's harder to do than you might think! But Jo loves blood and gore so the fact that we had to keep applying more wasn't a problem for her, in fact it was probably just a bonus!

Harley Quinn and Joker

Okay, I have done some controversial shoots before now but this one may take the prize. I'm going up against the most aggressive sector in any social group: Fans! In particular, DC comic fans. I'm saying that my Joker is better than the new Justice League Joker. Bring it on fanboys, I can take it!

The design of Jared Leto's forthcoming Joker in Warner Bros new Justice League movie has been divisive if nothing else, with some claiming it is a revolutionary design and others yelling that it's atrocious. I'm of the latter opinion.

When Faye contacted me to suggest a Harley Quinn shoot, I immediately accepted and thought it would be a great opportunity to have a go at my own interpretation of the Joker. Aedea was more than willing to supply his versatile features for the role. Being something of a traditionalist, I figured I would tackle the Joker from the Moore / Bolland Killing Joke era; pure white skin, purple suit, deadly grin, and of course ultra-violent and psychopathic.

Faye's Harley was very much her own, inspired by the forthcoming movie. I must say the new Harley design is great, and I'm please Faye went along these lines instead of the Halloween red catsuit style. The result is an homage to the new movie's Harley and a direct "rejection" to the new movie's Joker.

Haunted and Tormented Ghost

This is my first real attempt at a ghost creation. I knew from the start I didn't want to do the cliché thing of setting the ghost on a transparent layer with some creepy old background showing through. Instead I really just wanted to show the character "in the flesh". Luckily, my wife Claire recently acquired an old wedding dress from a charity shop and so we set up this haunted character shoot.

I have a tradition of shooting in the dark with inky blackness surrounding my characters, but just for a change, I decided to shoot this subject in two parts: Firstly under high key lighting with pure white background and then in my regular style of darkness and low key lighting. The effects are very different and give interesting contrasts to the character.
