Portrait Session: Phyllis in Kings Cross

King's Cross Portrait Photography

I had the absolute pleasure of working with one of my returning customers earlier this month for yet another wonderful portrait session.

This time, Phyllis took me to Kings Cross as there are some great architectural structures and interesting backdrops in the area. It was great to explore another part of London I’d never really ventured too – other than the station!

I love doing shoots like this because it really allows me to be creative.

Without further ado…

We started our shoot in the beautifully restored industrial space called Coal Drops Yard where they had this magnificent Christmas tree. We then took a little walk along the canal side where we found the coolest barber shop around – The Floating Barber Shop.

We then continued to follow the canal until we came to Gasholder Park where these amazing structural cylinders were.

Our hour’s shooting time was almost up, and Phyllis had decided she wanted more time to change outfits and continue shooting, so that’s what we did. I was so excited when she told me about our next location – because it was pink!

After we’d found the Happy Face restaurant, we ventured back to the Lewis Cubitt Square followed by the Coal Drops Yard where they had these insane hanging installations.

THE FACE covers archive provided a fantastically vibrant backdrop for Phyllis’ portraits. This exhibition showcases 250 covers from between 1980-2001.

Thankfully, I took an assistant along with me on this shoot which meant he could get a lovely portrait of Phyllis & I. This is what I love about my customers – they’re not just customers. They become dear friends.

I really loved this shoot and can’t wait to work with Phyllis again very soon.
