Elliot Cooper — Wales based adventure & lifestyle photographer.
Recently I've been shooting a tonne of lifestyle photo's. I've reached out to independent business' & brands who were in need of some imagery for their website's/social channels. Simon from Belle Toujours got in touch with me with the aim of shooting some headshots for Joico, styled by him. Simon is a long time family friend so it was wonderful to work together!
It was a pretty strange experience shooting in this environment but I couldn't be happier with the results. It was the first time I'd actually used my budget external flash. Being super dubious of it, I worried what the outcome would be. Although after the first couple of shots, the relief was real, it helped captured the hairstyles & model's faces perfectly!
I thoroughly enjoyed editing this series, new challenges are always a heap of fun!
I hope you've enjoyed taking a look through some totally new examples of my work. As always I'd love to hear what you think about them! We have plans for me to shoot the actual salon in full flow at some point in the future. I'll be sure to release those on the website when the time comes!
