This project has been quite tough, having to look through suitcases and boxes of images, seeing my whole families experiences and holidays, their faces when they were young, and the moments where they are loving life and some where they are not. The project allowed me to we explore the use of the image within my family environment before I was born, I saw how the postcard was used to communicate person to person about everyday life etc. The selection process was very long but I finally managed to just choose a selection of about 30 and went with those, I ordered them chronologically, most of them had dates and names on the back which helped a lot with the narrative and to help me find direct family. The ones I chose were thoroughly looked at in terms of subject, composition and engagement with the viewer and with the knowledge of certain photographic styles such as Reineke Dijkstra. Printing in the darkroom is also something I enjoy doing with a lot of my work so it was really nice to be creating work that is adding to the family albums at the same time as creating towards a book that directs a vision.
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.
