Oliva Stacey at Clive Figes Sigma Studio

Finally met one of the photographers I've admired and respected for some time yesterday. Myself, Assistant Olivia and her father had a fantastic day in Devon at his studio, to see how he works and for Olivia to learn techniques of working with models and poses. The principle of never asking your model to do something you're not prepared to do yourself was put into practice, as Olivia donned her Prom Dress and struck some poses at the amazing Mansion House (photos below). Afterwards she worked with a wonderful model, Miranda, in Clive's studio, (images not yet available). Clive certainly gave us a masterclass in lighting and portrait work - thank you so very much Sir!
