This first entry is to give you a little information about who I am, My work, My influences, as well as some information about upcoming photo sessions that I have booked in with my models.
Since I left the course I have been mainly concentrating on portraiture and people photography, but not the usual subject sat against a blank canvas ! I like to take my models out and about, trying to find surroundings that will compliment or contrast their characters.
I think my main influences are artists like Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Annie Lebowitz, and the late Herb Ritts. I’ve always loved their work for different reasons, with Herb Ritts being my favourite. I love the way he always creates stunning images, capturing the essence of his subject. One of the most inspiring things I ever heard about him was when he was lecturing at a college in America and he said “If you are shooting a model, don’t stay in one place, get off the tripod ! If you start in the corner of the room, end up outside !” I think that comment has always stayed with me and I certainly try to move around, getting different angles and viewpoints.
Other things that influence me are music, film and fashion, as well as a very creative sense of image. I like playing with different ideas and trying to challenge the viewers perception of what a photo should be. But enough about me, check out the rest of the site !
