Shooting for book covers- Natalie

Natalie Ciufo



I've worked with Natalie dozens of times before although we've never actually done a fantasy themed session before so needless to say this session was so much fun. Which is ironic really when I know Natalie loves fantasy themes just as much as I do. It's just something we never got around to doing before. Originally we planned an underwater shoot and although it was mid September and quite sunny on the day the water was FREEZING and it wasn't fair on Natalie to keep trying to get further and further into the water so we decided to save that for a warmer day in the summer or rent a pool. Which we eventually did!- I will write another blog post about that and the logistics to take into account whilst planning an underwater shoot because it's not as easy as it seems. There are so many things to take into account and obstacles seem to pop up here there and everywhere.


Luckily I packed a few smoke bombs so it wasn't an entirely wasted day. Not that the day would have been wasted as it's always lovely to meet up with Natalie. Can you believe she made the flower crown her self? I don't think there is an end to her talents!


All photos were taken in Bury, Greater Manchester.

We also came across a door on a bridge although I'm saving this unique location for a book cover submission in a month or so. Which may sound strange, but there is method in my madness! If it's a client session I edit all images in one go. If it's a shooting for book cover session I will go to and from sessions. It takes a while before they go public after key-wording (around 3-7 weeks) and to save them getting lost in the thousands of uploads its easier to keep re-adding images from a previous session after a new session and keep going back and forth from sessions whilst editing so they're viewed more than once by author's and not potentially lost amongst thousands of images on a busy upload week.
