I recently came across Above Ground's work. He had previously been mentioned by many Hip Hop artists as one of the best documentary photographers involved with capturing and archiving the London's Hip Hop and Grime music culture with a close focus on the individuals who make it up. I can see straight away this guy is very attentive in his work, getting very close and personal he captures striking portraits and imagery that is full of emotion. What I really admire is the fact most of his work is taken on film, and film isn't that fast in terms of outputting it and getting it all digitised, it is probably the slowest way to shoot as I know myself, But I admire the fact this guy has so much work using this medium and from his recent exhibitions he seems to print a lot out and display them on walls as 6x4's. A true inspiration to the Hip Hop culture of photographers.
Wedding and bookings
I am available for Weddings, Festivals, Gigs, Band shoots, individual portrait shoots, family/ group shoots, videography, dance videos.
Being a Photojournalist I have been trained to work fast and accurately and along side the journalistic approach I am also capable of being able to create a project with you. The documentary side to my practice meas that I have the patients and the vision of helping create long terms based projects, such as books, exhibitions, public talks documentaries etc.
It is your ideas I am interested in. For a shoot if you have an idea, a vision, it is my aim to try and get as close as possible to what is in your head and bring it into reality. That way you are happy and we are all actively creating something new and meaningful.
Interested in creating something together? Unsure about something? Or simple want to ask me something photography related then give me a message, always motivated to listen.
