Behind the scenes: Colourful fashion photoshoot with Kaleido Shoots

We have come to the realisation that we have no idea what half the buttons on our DSLR mean, so for a recent photoshoot we enlisted the services of Brighton based duo Kaleido ShootsKaleido Shoots are Lucy and Veronika; we met Veronika at a local market we did a couple of years ago so we decided to contact her when we needed photography help. We picked a nice bright yellow fabric for a backdrop to make our clothing pop for a colourful fashion photoshoot and headed to the Kaleido Shoots studio. We had an awesome time watching the pros at work!

Our models were Jenny Tang and Theo Goodyer – both excellent illustrators who came to our aid when we did a call out for models. Jenny is an illustrator based in High Wycombe who makes comics & zines, embroidered patches, riso prints and more! Theo is an illustrator based in Brighton who makes comics and is part of Planet Munky who exhibited at Brighton Illustration Fair 2017.

Pretty good getting another use out of some of the props we made for our film.

Theo is holding Patrick’s late Great Aunt Florence’s torch. Made in Hong Kong probably in the 1970s and still working!

Fluff Buddy jumpers for the win!
