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.

Shoot 10 — Medieval Ranger and Urban Fantasy

There has been a desperate lack of female Medieval Ranger / Assassin / Archer concepts in the world of stock photography… We’ve set out to remedy that, with an intense new set starring our new model Liepa!!

Aside from the Medieval Assassin concept, we also captured some great Urban Fantasy shots, which are always versatile for a wide range of genres.

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.
