I recently did a outdoor, fashion style, shoot with model Jo Fry.
The location was a abandoned barn that is actually just a few yards from my house.
The inspiration for the shoot was from ‘American Apparel’ – I love the style of the photographs on their new ad campaign.
I love doing outdoor fashion shoots, but unfortunately this year the weather really hasn’t been on our side…
Also just a quick note that I’ve updated my portfolio on my website at www.carlbeebee.com
Thanks for reading.

The View – 2012 – Taken on iPhone
One of the biggest problems I’ve always had with my website, is settling on a way to organise my online galleries. Recently I’ve had a page with links to different galleries; portraits, conceptual, places, polaroids etc. but I found that all a bit tiresome… It can also be difficult when you have a image that could fit into more than one category – where do you put it then? Just in one or in both galleries?
I’ve spent the last few hours taking lots of photographs down (and adding a few new ones) and I’ve “bundled” them all into one gallery. At the moment I like it and it seems to be easier, but I’ll likely change my mind soon.
Please check it out if you get a chance here: www.carlbeebee.com
What do you find the best way for organising your online galleries?

Those that have been reading my blog for a while know that I have a bit of a love, hate relationship with Instagram.
Just recently however, I’ve tried to use it a little more purposefully, and I have to say I’m really enjoying it.
I only upload images that have actually been taken on the iPhone but I do try and mix things up a little bit by uploading “proper” photographs (portraits, places etc.) as well as shooting some behind the scenes images from photo shoots along with just completely random photos (see above).
If you use Instagram please follow me on @carlbeebee – and leave a comment in the comment section below with your username so I can follow you back.

I had a shoot last week with Roseanne – we did some editorial shots as well as some general portraiture.
The editorial shots are part of the ‘Fatale’ series that I have been working on in recent weeks.
The series depicts, strong, powerful and sexy women in a “noir” like environment…
We spent a hour or so working on some regular portrait work – the one below is one of my favourites thus far…
