Photo shoot with Norwich band 5PM, By James Neale,Photographer, Dereham, Norwich, Norfolk.
On Saturday I had the pleasure of working with local band 5PM. They are based in Norwich, Norfolk, but are looking to move to London to help promote their band. to help finance the move the guys are looking to do some modelling work whilst they are there so as well as images to use on the band website, they were also after some images to start off their own modelling porfolios.
We all met at the Forum in Norwich to talk about the kind of thing they wanted, out of the three guys only one had some modelling experience, so i was going to have to help the guys out to make sure they were comfortable in front of the camera. When we left the Forum it was obvious that we were going to be battling with the weather all day, one minute it was sunny, the next raining, and we even had snow at one point! I started off by taking the guys to a quiet location and took some group shots to get the guys more comfortable infront of the camera, the rain then started so we headed of to a multi-storey carpark. this was a really good location and also gave us shelter from the weather.
The guys seemed to be getting used to the camera so we headed of to a busier location. this is where the fun began. One of the guys Jay looked like one of the guys from JLS, when he was having his photos done, a few people started nudging each other and pointing, everyone thought that it was really him, a little gathering of girls soon started to form! it really was great fun! i certainly loved the attention, and i think secretly Jay did to!
We all had great time and got some great images for them to use. The guys are also booked in to do a studio session this week with me and i look forward to meeting them all again, and showing them final images.
