This post is little more than a tip of the cap and a thank you to one of my biggest influences in photography; Jake Hicks
Not only is he incredibly talented and has a remarkable & enviable style, but he spends a great deal of his time and energy offering help, advice and inspiration to thousands of followers and fans, whether it be with his "Technique Tuesday" or his "Stay Inspired" sections, or his own stunning portfolio. His use of gels, hard light and lensbaby's seem to be created for one another.
Below are a few images I shot recently with Vicky Burns at Yorkshire Studios between teaching workshops. Using Jake's fantastic website for tips and ideas, I have learned so much that I can apply to future work!
