The Stow Gypsy fair was a very enjoyable experience, i got to meet a few individuals and heard what they think about the fair and why it is important. The people all seemed very pasionate about their tradtion and loved to pose for photos, I was expecting a bit more of a challenge when it came to photographing them but most were more than happy.
The amount of random bits and bobs they sold made me realise their way of living, they would sell pretty much anything to get money, from shoes to shooting jackets and live stock to caravans. The people seemed to be in expensive designer clothes which shows they are quite well off and they like to look good most of the time.
I tried to capture the day in these six images, the people, what they were selling and how it was all sold. I used a combination of flash and a small aperture to fill in the shadows on the peoples faces and bring out detail in their clothes. for the still life images available light was used as it was overcast and the light was even and soft which made quite nice shooting conditions.
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.
