Set aside and discovered: a picture of Elle

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

These days I don’t use contacts any more – who does? – everything gets scanned and filed away in Lightroom. An early step in this process is the rating of pictures, and those that get a low rating can often be hidden from view forever.

This is generally a good thing – who needs to see bad pictures? Sometimes though a diamond disappears into the depths of the low-rated only to be, with a bit of luck, rediscovered later. This is one of those:

It’s from a test Elle Black did with me in August. I’ve just found it by accident on a quick flick through Lightroom. I like it a lot.

Luiza dropped by the studio the other day for a quick shoot. Quite pleased with this one:

The ‘New Direction’ bears fruit

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

So, just realised it’s almost 3 months since that last post, proclaiming to the world my grand New Direction, so I though it’s probably about time I showed you some results:

You can see a few here but you’ll have to log-in to see more.

A new direction

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

I’ve always been unsure of which photographic pigeonhole I inhabit. I know what I’m not – photojournalist, conceptualist, digital manipulator – but sometimes I have a lot of difficulty trying to figure out what I am. The best I can say is that my style is reportage.

That style means that I am inevitably drawn in the direction of documentary photography. This is fine, and I find such work rewarding, but it really doesn’t satisfy the more artistic parts of my nature. For the last few years I’ve been working more and more on the documentary aspect – I think partly through the mistaken belief that I would be able to make money out of this kind of thing, fool that I am.

It’s time for a change.

I’m going to move back into more artistic work. For me that means portraits, and figure nudes. I’m planning a few shoots over the next few months and I’ll post some samples of work here as I go along.

Seems like such a small thing, but believe me – it’s taken a lot of soul searching to decide on this change of direction!
