LINDY FLECKNOR SHOOT https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2020/10/lindy-flecknor-shoot Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Bristol based actress Lindy Flecknor. She needed some new headshots. We had a great day, although we couldn't do very much on location due to the weather we did get some good shots. Here are a few of them.

Here are a few Behind the scenes photos kindly taken on my camera by a young lady who was doing some work experience on set.

SUPPRESSION FEATURE FILM BTS SHOTS. https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2020/5/suppression-feature-film-bts-shots Again just before "Lockdown" commenced I was able to shoot some of my scenes for the upcoming independent feature film "Suppression". I am playing Detective Kaminski.

Hopefully once the restrictions are lifted we can finish shooting the remaining scenes and the fantastic team at The View Finders can get on with all the post production stuff and get distribution of the film. Thank you to Jason and the team at The View Finders for having the faith in me and casting me in this amazing and exciting project.

 

Here are some "Behind The Scenes" photos.

Shaun Lee was playing the part of Dandini in the pantomime "Cinderella" at the Playhouse Theatre in Weston Super Mare. Whilst he was staying with us we took the opportunity to update Shaun's headshots. Had a great 2 hour photo shoot, both location (although the weather was rubbish) and studio. Here are a few of the photo's from that session.

On Sunday 24th Icescape hosted The Snow Sisters for 2 skate sessions. I took along my cameras as I was due to finish at 2pm just as their first session was starting. I managed to get some good shots throughout, including our favourites Olaf The Snowman and Pippen The Penguin.

We had a an amazing day, taking loads of photo's and having a great laugh in the process. Here is a selection of the photo's from that shoot. Thank you Katie for being such an amazing model.

CATCH UP https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2019/11/catch-up I haven't posted for absolutely ages. Sorry about that. Here's a quick overview then I'll do separate entries for some of the things I've been doing both photography wise and on the acting front.

 

ACTING: Since the Drama Direct workshop I have played Superintendent Robert Eklund in "Hindsight" a web series produced by Screenology in Bristol. Following that I auditioned for a short film entitled Giggles, was offered a lead part but unfortunately due to time constraints on the director it had to be shelved. Then I was offered a part in a feature film shooting early 2020 playing Detective Kaminski in "Suppression" shortly after that I was offered the part of Pete who is the father of the leading lady in another feature film called "I Love You Goodbye". I have already filmed some of my scenes from that but have some more to do in December.

Then a few weeks ago I auditioned for a part in a potential television drama called "Bad Criminals" playing the head of a criminal gang. After the audition I was asked to submit a self tape which I did and was then offered the part. So all in all going well on my 2 year plan to turn professional as an actor.

PHOTOGRAPHY: After my last photography entry things went very quiet, shortly after Nathalie and Ryan's wedding I had to go into hospital for my second total knee replacement, then I changed my working pattern (gave up my job with the Red Cross) to concentrate on getting it together on the acting front. In October 2018 I started a winter season at Icescape @ The Tropicana in Weston Super Mare  (https://icescape-tropicana.co.uk)
 , initially working on ride operations and skate exchange but throughout November and December I was playing the man with the long white beard in the grotto. Had such an amazing season that I applied for this winter season and am currently working there, about to start in the grotto again. Last Sunday Icescape had a special event, "The Snow Sisters" joined two of the skating sessions so out came the cameras. I'll bee posting some of the pics from that separately.

DRAMA DIRECT WORKSHOP https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2019/9/drama-direct-workshop Earlier in the year I attended a screen acting workshop hosted by Mark Mc Gann at Drama Direct. I had been sent a script for a scene from "Bullets From Picasso" by Mark Husbands.

On the day I was fortunate enough to be working with a great actor from London, a guy named Mark Black. We hit it off from the word go. We. spent about an hour rehearsing the scene then Mark Mc Gann came in to set up for the shoot. We had a lot of fun and managed to shoot the whole scene in about 40 minutes. Here is the completed scene which I am hoping to use in my new showreel when I receive recordings of some of my other work.

Hope you enjoy.

ACTING UPDATE https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2019/9/acting-update Since my last entry, I have filmed "Hindsight" the web series, attended the workshop with Mark Mc Gann, had another audition and been offered a part in a short performance driven film called "Giggles". Waiting to receive my shooting schedule. I had another meeting a couple of weeks ago with a film director and was offered the part of Police Inspector Kaminsky in an independent feature film called "Suppression", due to shoot early next year. Guess what I also have another audition later this month for another part in a feature film called "I Love You, Goodbye". So hopefully during the middle of 2020 I will have sufficient footage to put together a showreel and get myself on the books of a London agent.

ACTING https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2019/2/acting Over the last year I have been working my way back into the acting profession with the aim of combining my two passions acting and photography.

I attended a couple of screen acting classes with Paul Dudbridge last November and am about to attend one of Drama Direct’s classes on March 3rd run by Mark Mc Gann. I also recently attented an audition at Screenology in Bristol. This is a film school and production company. At the end of the audition I was offered the part of Robert Eklund a senior police officer in a new web series being shot in Bristol during March and April called Hindsight. I am so looking forward to the challenge of performing my biggest screen role to date.

With the footage from the screen class and the web series I should be able to put together a decent showreel and hopefully secure representation by a London agent.

Fingers crossed.

NATALIE AND RYAN WEDDING https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2017/11/natalie-and-ryan-wedding I've been away for a while. But recently I had the honour and great pleasure of photographing the wedding of Miss Natalie Pearson to Mr Ryan D'Arcy.

It was a great day. Quite good light overall but started to get colder throughout the after ceremony photographs. Everyone was very patient and stayed around for al the photo's. 

Natalie looked absolutely beautiful in her long white wedding gown, Ryan looked very "dapper" in his 3 piece suit. 

The happy couple very kindly invited my wife and I to share in the evening celebrations which was such a kind gesture. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

Here are a few pictures from the day.

It's been a while since I last made an entry on my blog.

Back in March I was asked to do a double headshot session with 2 Bristol based actors. Jasmine Atkins-Smart (Jazz) and Josh Phillips. We spent a few

hours getting a mixture of studio and location shots. Here are a few of the photo's we took on the day.

Natalie Champion https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2016/9/natalie-champion  In May this year I did a couple of shoots with a dancer, Natalie Champion. She is currently training at Urdang Academy in London and she wanted some headshots and some general portfolio material. As well as dancing she would like to do some modelling. So we not only did the standard dancer shots we also went down the route of urban style clothing for a bit of a fashion shoot. We spent 2 days working on the shoots.

Cornwall weekend break https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2016/4/cornwall-weekend-break Just got back from a lovely weekend break in Carbis Bay near St Ives in Cornwall. It was a birthday weekend celebration for Sue.

We stayed at a lovely little B&B called Thurlestone Guest House. Lovely owners, so helpful.

Got to see quite a bit of Cornwall. St Ives, St Michaels Mount, The Minack Theatre and Padstow.

Had great time managed to take a few photo’s.

Shrewsbury https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2016/4/shrewsbury At the end of March Sue and I went to Shrewsbury. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny day whilst there. This allowed us to take a nice walk along the side of the River Severn up to the Quarry which is the main park in Shrewsbury. From the high energy of the rower on the river to the stillness of the Dingle garden and the very tame robin. It was a lovely day. Here are a few shots from our walk.

Possible name change https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2015/11/possible-name-change I've been giving some serious thought to the name VisaVis Photography. I'm not sure how many people actually "Get it". Vis a Vis is French for "Face to Face".

So I've been looking at the websites of other performance photographers as well a some commercial photograhers and most seem to use a .com site with just their name, eg: Emilie Sandy (www.emiliesandy.com), Matilda Temperley (www.matildatemperley.com), Simon Annand (www.simonannand.com), Scott Rylander (www.scottrylander.com).

I've looked for www.charliedownes.com but this is taken it directs to http://yewtreestudio.com, Not sure what that's about but hey ho! So I'm thinking of www.charlesdownes.com whichis currently available, I'd still be using Charlie as my name, but the Charles bit does make it sound quite classy in my opinion. Any comments welcome.

End of the course https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2015/7/end-of-the-course Now I've got my results from my Foundation Degree and have passed, I can get down to keeping my website and blog up to date. I've now got a "Day Job" which will hopefully allow me enough time to push my photography business, without the financial worries usually associated with setting up a new business. I'm going to be working for the Red Cross as Service Assistant on their Assisted Discharge Scheme at Weston General Hospital. Basically driving people home and helping them to settle in, which helps to unblock beds at the hospital. A few 12 hour shifts each week giving me time on my days off to market Visavis Photography.

Our Country's Good https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2015/7/our-countrys-good In early June I went along to the brewery Theatre in Bristol (part of the Tobacco Factory). A group of first year drama students from City of Bristol College were performing a brilliant play "Our Country's Good" by Timberlake Wertenbaker. The play follows the first group of convicts sent to New South Wales in Australia. 

I was able to capture both the technical and dress rehearsals. Here is a selection of the photo's I took.

Thanks to all the company (Twelve Roots Theatre Company) for allowing me to photograph the results of their hard work. Take a look at their facebook page (http://www.twelverootsfdatheatrecompany.com/)

WODS Hairspray Rehearsals #1 https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2015/7/wods-hairspray-rehearsals-1 Early in May I returned to the rehearsal space used by WODS. They had commenced their rehearsals for their next show "Hairspray".

Again I was impressed by the vast array of talent in the company. It's going to be a really lively, fun show. Running early October at The Playhouse Theatre in Weston.

Here are some shots from this first rehearsal I attended.

More to come soon.

Assisting Matilda Temperley https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2015/5/assisting-matilda-temperley Since January I have been communicating with Matilda Temperley ( Matilda Temperley Photography) trying to arrange a mutually suitable time for me to go and join her in her studio in Somerset. We eventually managed to set a day.

 

Yesterday May 8th, I drove down to Kingsbury Episcopi near Martock. On arrival I was met by Matilda's father Julian. He took me into the house to find Matilda. The start of an amazing day working as her assistant.

 

For the first shoot we drove a couple of miles to a field chest high in Oilseed Rape. Spending time positioning the portable flash, The hope was that we would have some beautiful bright sunlight, instead we had cloud and rain. Matilda finding the right shooting angles and height (up a step ladder), Checking everything was ready then bringing the first model Rochana in for her shots, Once matilda had the shots of Rochana that she wanted we re set and got everything ready for the next series of shots with the second model - Anstasia. A different set of shots, moving the light into different position, After a couple of hours the shots were recorded.

 

Back to the farm for a cup of tea and discussion about the second  (studio) shoot in the afternoon. After tea, Matilda and I went down to her new studio a couple of miles in the other direction to the  rape field.

 

Once in the studio we set up 2 Colorfast backdrops one black and one blue. Set the lights in position, then set to work creating gobo's and 3 kaleidoscopes for Matilda's ideas.

 

By the time the rest of the team had arrived we were ready for the first set up. Hair, make up and costumes all done, a whole series of shots with 6' 2"  Rochana, Matilda tethered her shots into Lightroom so we could all see the image immediately post capture. Some amazing photographs.

 

Next it was Anastasia's first series of shots and so it went.

 

We did have a half hour break for lunch during the afternoon, but towards the end of the shoot the stylist was keen to move on to the next setup due to time running out. Matilda was so engrossed in her work she had lost track of time. By 6.30 pm there were still shots to capture of the models together. Finally the girls were made up and dressed to compliment each others looks and the final series of shots were set up.

 

By the time we had finished and Matilda and I had tidied up the studio it was pushing towards 8 pm.

 

I left the farm at about 8.30, a long day but one of the best days i can remember having experienced. I feel so priviliged to have had the opportunity to not only spend time watching Matilda work, but to have been asked to assist her on these shoots.

Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society Rehearsal Shoot #5 https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2015/3/wods-rehearsal-shoot-5 Hi guys. Sorry but the photo's I took on Wednesday 18th February, didn't get editied. They would have gone up as Shoot #5. I fully intended to get on with them whilst I was in hospital. But no one told me the after effects of anaesthetic and major surgery combined would knock me flying so severely and for so long. So they are not going up on the blog. I do however have un editied copies which I can work on at a later date if anyone wants.

Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society. 2nd Rehearsal shoot https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2015/1/worle-operatic-and-dramatic-society-2nd-rehearsal-shoot On Wednesday this week (January 14th), I attended my 2nd WODS rehearsal for Hot Mikado, which I know is going to be a great show. This lovely group of people are working so hard to put it all together. I would just like to congratulate the company on their several nominations for awards by NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association), these nominations are for their production of one of my all time favourite shows, Jesus Christ Superstar. Well done all involved in that one. Here's to the next set of nominations for Hot Mikado.

Now for some of the shots I took on Wednesday.

Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society. https://www.charliedownes.co.uk/blog/2015/1/worle-operatic-and-dramatic-society I contacted WODS before Christmas to see if I could go along to their rehearsals for Hot Mikado and do a series of documentary type photo's for my performance photography (Independent Practice) assignment. After putting it to the committee I was given the green light. Last Wednesday (7th January) I went along for the first time. Had a great time watching the hard work of all concerned and got some nice early rehearsal photographs. A big thank you to Aaron and all at WODS for allowing me to photograph the rehearsals.
