This shoot was from the other week. I messaged Beth one of the Hip hop artists to do a photoshoot for an hour or so somewhere. We decided to meet up and go to the top of the hills so that the Cheltenham landscape was in the distance and my job was to get creative with the camera. I got her to sit in the boot of her car and just engage with the camera, we got some great shots.
Now then the choice of camera determines the visual perspective of the image, for example, using a 35mm camera which is taken with the camera held up to my eye, this creates a perspective in the moment in which the subject is looking into the photographers eyes, they are engaging with the photographer as well as the camera. Now if I used a camera from the hip such as a Bronica SQ then the perspective changes, the subject now sees the camera as tool to be used to communicate to the world. The subject is no longer looking into the photographers eyes but engaging with the camera completely.
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.
