A neon love shoot at Gods Own Junkyard, Walthamstow
This might be one of my favourite shoots of all time. Ever.
Ever since I first visited God’s Own Junkyard, the home of neon artist Chris Bracey, I knew I wanted to shoot there and I think Dale and Ed were the perfect couple for this location.
Dale is an artist himself so I knew he’d feel at home among the art works. We met up one fearsomely hot evening (made hotter by the lights all around us) and we hung out among the neon, before heading over to Lloyd Park to catch the last of the evening sunshine.
It was really good fun working with Dale and Ed, and doing something a little bit different. A shoot like this isn’t for everyone but I quite like the way it feels a little bit sleazy.
As an aside, Gods Own Junkyard has recently opened a new venue on the same estate, called The Blitz Factory. It will be available to rent out for weddings and they’ll decorate it for you with neon and props from the Junkyard. Amazing. I must photograph a wedding there.
Over to Dale and Ed. Here’s what happened:
