Fun & Frolics at a Disused Edwardian Swimming Pool!
Happy New Year to our wonderful readers! I hope you all had a fantastic time celebrating yesterday and there are not too many sore heads among you? You know how much we love to celebrate and you know how much we love confetti so to welcome in 2015 we wanted to share this super fun and quirky styled shoot with you, complete with lots of colourful confetti, dancing and giant balloons! It might just be the tonic you need to get yourself up and enjoying the first day of 2015.
We asked photographer Florence Fox to tell us more about her inspiration…
“Victoria Baths is such an inspiring location, I’ve been wanting to shoot in it ever since I first step foot in there! It’s an old disused Edwardian swimming pool which has an abundance of rooms, including an empty original swimming pool, complete with beautiful poolside changing rooms. There are also so many gorgeous features, including stained glass, turnstiles, and wooden seating for ‘spectators’ to watch.
I wanted the shoot to reflect my photography style – relaxed, laid back, quirky with a lot of fun thrown in! I had a lot of fun doing the more creative shots with balloons and confetti! For the most part I gave little direction and we all pitched in with ideas. Lucas and Chloe are both actors and very good friends of mine which is why I asked them to be part of the shoot. I’ve known Lucas for a few years and he was the first person I thought of when I was looking for people to work with. They were very at ease throughout the whole shoot and had a great laugh together, creating some fantastic photos with chemistry and the playful element. ”
