I met Koko at my part-time job at Overbridge Studio. She came in for a test shoot and I had to ask her to work with me on some street shoots. When I met her she was throwing out her own original poses unlike the usual bore that relies on me for instruction. I’ve never worked with a model on location and Koko has never modelled on location, so it was a learning experience for the both of us.
Having a few hours to spend with a model instead of a few minutes was a breath of fresh air, I felt like I was able to capture a slice of Koko’s killer personality and her sense of style. I’m really happy with how the images turned out and I hope to work with Koko again soon.
The back alley shots were taken behind Grand Central, the Camera shots in front of GMEX (Manchester Central) and the rooftop shots were atop of NCP Oxford Road, miraculously we weren’t chased away as we expected.
