November – Shooting around the BoundCon Munich Meets Feringapark convention
We very much enjoyed this smaller version of the “BoundCon” event – and will become almost permanent features.  With A’s sight and mobility problems, having the whole event in the hotel proved a huge plus.  During this we also had our …

October – Shoot with Christina Carter at our Home/Studio
It was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the year when the international star Christina Carter came to our house.  We were specially thrilled that she brought her iconic Wonder Woman costume so we could include pictures of her in that role.

Another fabulous holiday from Photofinca.  Tillie brought all her fun, style and experience of the locations and Bex came with a specialism in yoga positions and moves.

September – Photography Holiday in Spain with Rosa Brighid
A short addition before the subsequent event (above).  Two shooting days with the lovely Rosa.

August – Shoot with Tillie
We were delighted when Tillie announced she had availability at short notice and invited her to shoot with us.  Part of the purpose of this shoot was for both of us to test new camera lenses – and the results with them delighted us too.

July – Shoot with WendyWarrior
This fun day was a first for us in several ways.  It as our first shoot with an amateur model.  Wendy had approached us because she wanted to shoot with some of our props.  So, it was also the first shoot where we were not in sole control of what we were shooting.  Another first was that we shot outdoors in publicly accessible places close to home.  Also, it was a first for us getting video onto the internet.  We have previously shot experimental video but it had not yet been edited.  Wendy asked us to shoot video and we think she has been much more prompt putting it up.

July – Shoot with Kitty Quinzell at Harbour Studio
The day after our shoot with Rachelle, we returned to Harbour Studio to shoot with Kitty.  We spent another wondervul day – sometimes using the same sets and sometimes different ones – as Kitty brought her own distinctive style t the shoot.  It was great to have the experience of working in Harbour Studio and all the help from people there, but we realised we may be getting a little old for two consecutive full days shooting.  As we took Kitty back to catch her train, M definitely decided central Newcastle is not a pleasant place to drive.

July – Shoot with Rachelle Summers at Harbour Studio
In July, we visited the North East of England, combining a visit to A’s family with shoots with models based in or near the area.  We booked Harbour Studio in North Shields mainly as a backup if the weather made outdoor locations impossible.  So, for our shoot with Rachelle Summers we started at a local lake but soon found it was getting too busy and moved to the studio.  The selection of sets and helpfulness of the owners made it an excellent choice.

April – Shoot with Ariel Anderssen and Temptress Kate 

On the second day of our shoot with Ariel Anderssen, we were joined by Kate and worked to the same pattern with the morning at Top Hat Studio and the afternoon at our house.  Ariel and Kate have worked together many times, in particular on the Restrained Elegance website so the chemistry between them was exceptional.  Sadly, this proved to be our last day at Top Hat in that form because shortly afterwards their premises were damaged following a fire nearby.  We hope they are up and running again soon.
