Renaissance series

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

Here’s a selection of photos from a series of six (the rest of which you can see on my flickr page if you’d like).

If you wouldn’t mind helping me out, I’d be incredibly interested to hear what you feel these photos communicate to you. They were a response to a competition brief, and if by some miracle they get shortlisted, I promise I’ll tell you what the story is meant to be. Till then, do let me know what you think as it’d be a great way for me to learn how to successfully express an idea visually.




Big thanks go to Ross Kilgour and Tess Mitchell for being my beautiful and imaginative models. They were both superb. Thanks also to Anna Gibson who agreed to be my photographers lackey and press the smoke button and move the lights about on demand.

Ross Photoshoot

Though a little scary doing the whole studio thing on my own for the first time, I had a brilliant time. Gav and Katy came down to help, shoot, advise, hold stuff. Twas brill. Must buy a white backdrop though, the cotton one here looks a little tatty.






Some more from the weekend

My first stock photo!

Sunday, July 1st, 2007

I take absolutely NO credit for this photo as all the lighting and set-up was done by a bunch of much more practiced people than myself – I just jumped in at the last minute and grabbed this shot. It’s not perfect, but I almost feel a pro nonetheless! Check out iScotalypse run by a very organised man called Warwick.

Kind thanks to everyone who taught me so much yesterday at the shoot. More to come tomorrow.
