Shoot 11— Victorian Ripper, Grimdark Knight & Viking Marauder

Shoots 11 & 12 were a big step for Team NeoStock, as this was the first time we’d shipped models in from further afield!! We’ve teamed up with two great historical interpreters from the West Country to collaborate on a total of SIX concepts for our libraries, over a two-day shoot…

The overall shoot had a ‘dark historical’ flavour, gritty and cinematic (the NeoStock way!!) Our concepts were: Victorian Ripper, Grimdark Knight, Viking Marauder, Old West Cowboy, and Urban Fantasy.

Here’s a look at the sets from our first day shooting:

Shoot 5 – Gypsy Witch, Victorian Gothic… and a BONUS!!

Shoot 005 was very exciting for us, for a number of reasons… First up, this was our first go at tackling ‘historical’ concepts, so we got to play with some awesome costumes and props, to create two sets: Gypsy Witch and Victorian Gothic. We threw a cape into the equation, and even got a BONUS set: Warrior Priestess!!

The Gypsy Witch set in particular is very versatile, and proved to be very popular with our Focus Group – these images could be used for a wide range of medieval, summoner, and even pirate concepts.

Take a look at some of the shots we got for each set, hopefully we have the image that you need for your project…

Gypsy Witch:

I’ve always been disappointed with the lack of suitably moody Victorian stocks out there, so we sought to rectify that with this next set.

Victorian Gothic:

Shoot 002 Previews – Assassin / Urban Fantasy

Shoot 002 was a great success, we managed to get a great selection of images – and ALSO, extremely helpful feedback from our Focus Group for future shoots.

Our two concepts were Urban Fantasy, and Tactical Assassin. For future Urban Fantasy concepts, we’ll definitely be incorporating bladed weapons, and more ‘dynamic’ / action oriented poses.

Photography by Tom Parsons, modelled by Catarina Alfonso, makeup by Beauty by Ruby. Shot at Fire Eye Land Studios (Margate, UK).

Planning for Shoot 2: Tactical Female Assassin, Contemporary Heroine

For our stock photography, ‘moodboards’ are a big part of the developmental process. With a visual palette, we get ideas for costumes, poses and composition.

Next weeks shoot we’ll be tackling two concepts, Tactical Female Assassin, and Contemporary Heroine.

Here are the moodboards in preparation for the shoot!!
