To quote from her website, “Shelly d’Inferno is a tattooed model, performer, fashion designer, make-up artist and photographer. She has been involved in the alternative scene since many years back, and has graced the covers of several international magazines such as Bizarre Magazine, Skin Deep, Tattoo Italia and Advanced Photographer.”

So imagine how many years I’ve wished to either film or photograph such a multi-talented and creative-visionary genius.  Which is why I was so happy to find out Shelly wanted to team up to cover not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 different sets in a phenomenal London venue!  For each set, we were all challenged in terms of quick turnaround and lighting setups (some of the rooms were honestly pitch black – iphone torches at the ready!).  All the while I was thinking quickly on the spot about colour gel combinations and lighting modifiers to best fit the scene, and to best fit the physical space!

Sets 1 and 2 are below, and watch out for sets 3 and 4 in tomorrow’s Part 2….
