Telling a brand story - MOSS

Telling a brand story - MOSS

Whenever we are asked to take photographs for a brand, for us, it always starts with their own story.

Moments of sense and style had a very clear beginning, perhaps one of the most compelling stories I’ve heard in awhile. We couldn’t help but be drawn to Syreeta and Rob’s passion and determination to make something huge that happened in their lives which was life changing and challenging in equal parts, into hope for others and a path they can work towards together in slow, careful movements.

How to Photograph Children

We wanted to write a blog about how we photograph the little ones, but before we start, I do want to say these are just the things that we’ve learnt along the way. We love what we do and love being around families, so these are some of the things that we’ve noticed as we go. These work if you are being paid to photograph children / families, or if you own some children and it’s a quick guide to some of the things we’ve do at most of our family shoots.

ANNA PORTRAIT, FILM PHOTOGRAPHY

PALE SKIN, WILD HAIR

I've been friends with Anna through Jo and followed her on Facebook and Instagram for a good couple of years now. Anna also loves her film photography and you can find her on Instagram here. What a beautiful soul she is, there is something so special about this girl and the way she see's the world. It was an absolute pleasure to spend a small amount of time with her and share a mutual love of film photography. 

Hope you enjoy these images. We're always looking to meet & create with new people for all inquires you can email us at hello@meliamelia.com.

JEANNIE PORTRAIT, FILM PHOTOGRAPHY

STORY OF A GIRL

Working with film has changed something for me and to be honest it's not the first time that I've given it a go. About four years ago I tried it but got a little frustrated that I couldn't create what I had in my mind. So moving onto more recently and I can't shoot enough of the stuff! I spend most of my time reading about either different film formats, film stocks or other photographers either on the internet or on Instagram. If you're reading this and you can recommend anyone who you find inspiration from, that would be amazing and I'll try to do the same for you. 

Anyway this is a shoot I did with Jeannie, who's we've known for a good couple of years now but have never got around to taking her picture. How beautiful is she? She's pretty special person from what I know of her.  They were all shot on a Pentax 645n with a 105mm f2.4 lens and a mixture of Kodak Portra {Colour} & Kodak Tri-x {I think this is my new favourite black and white}.  I still feel like I'm at the start of my journey with film and I look forward to every moment with it. Would love to connect with more people who have the love for film or just really appreciate it. Or if I can take your picture?
