Apologies for the complete lack of blog updates recently – been crazy busy and I can get really bad at remembering/finding time too blog…
So, a few updates… The piece of above is from a new collection of conceptual portraits I’m creating. The series is entitled ‘Desire’ and aims to create emotionally driven portraiture…
This photograph above is from a vintage, fashion shoot I did with my friend Esme – still lots more of these to edit and hopefully I’ll add some more to the blog very soon…
In other news the great folks at VSCO invited me to start a grid of my iPhone work on their site – there’s only a few images there at the moment (including the one below) but I intend to add many more of the coming weeks. BTW if you haven’t already got it I highly suggest you download the VSCOcam app for your iPhone – it’s my favourite photography app and has some truly unique effects… You can take a look at my VSCO grid here: http://carlbeebee.vsco.co
And finally there is the news regarding my small trip to California…
In November I will be travelling to LA with three of my closest friends – during the trip – as well as several fashion shoots I will be documenting the towns, landscapes and the adventures of our trip for my forthcoming book ‘California Calling’ which will be internationally released at the beginning of 2014… This is a trip I’m really excited about and I really think I’m going to create something truly unique and very, very cool… What could possibly go wrong?
On this note – the casting is still open for these shoots – so if you’re a model in California and are interested please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org

I don’t often use ‘Instagram’ anymore. I don’t really have anything against it I just generally prefer to build Lightroom Presets that I think suit individual photographs.
Having said that, I took the photograph above a couple of days ago on my iPhone and tried a few different presets, but I couldn’t get it how I wanted. I got frustrated and bored so decided to whack it into Instagram.
As it turned out I really love the look of it with it’s current filter so I was pleasantly surprised… Maybe I should give Instagram a little more thought in the future…

Sorry about the lack of posts recently – I had a new computer arrive and as always it’s taken an age to get everything sorted…
The shot above is from a shoot last week for ‘Julia Smith Jewellery’ the model is Laura Ding. I got loads of shots from the shoot with some really cool fine art concept pieces which I’ll edit and upload very soon…
Lots of shoots coming up and I promise I’ll try and blog on here a little more often.
Thanks very much reading. x

The sunset looked beautiful outside my house the other evening – so I grabbed my camera and tripod and took the photographs above – I also took a load more but haven’t really got round to editing them just yet… Busy, busy!

Over the last few days I’ve been experimenting with HDR photography – I really like some of the effects which you can achieve.
For this HDR photograph I took 6 different exposures; 1/20, 1/40, 1/60, 1/10, 1/6 – the aperture was f16 and the iso was 200.
The above image is the shot taken at 1/60th – the image below is the final HDR photograph.
For those interested I found a great HDR tutorial courtesy of PhotoTuts here.
