My uncle gave me this old vintage photo beauty dish. It just so happens to make for a perfect stylish desk lamp.
I replaced the electronics and fitted it with a modern energy efficient bulb. It still works as an excellent beauty dish though and I have used it for a few portraits, including the one below.
My friend Dan runs an awesome company called The Photo Parlour, which actually has two sites now. An awesome black and white darkroom based in Derby for members use and a professional developing and printing shop in Nottingham.
I had taken this lovely shot of my wife getting ready on our 1st anniversary, I was going through my first film phase back then and had fixed up a an lovely little Olympus Pen Half frame. I asked Dan to produce some prints for me one of which was this print to hang in my studio.
