I recently joined a site called Purpleport, which aims to put photographers and models in touch with each other – professionals and amateurs like me. I saw a shoot advertised that sounded too interesting to pass up – a couple of models were organising something at a derelict church outside Chepstow.

And I’m so glad I did it – I am so pleased with the photos I got from it, although a lot of credit does have to go to the models Helen and Emma.

I appreciate that nudes aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s nothing gratuitous or offensive here – just what I hope you think are some beautiful images.

And yes, I have found the “cross-processed” preset in Lightroom…
