I'm an Amateur/Hobby Photographer from Limerick Ireland.
I really enjoy the work of Peter Coluson, Oliver Playford. Jake Hicks, Haris Nukem, Chris Knight, Stanislav Puchkovsky (Sean Archer) love Don Mccullans work but war photography is not something yout want to be doing as a hobby.
I lack my own studio and I don't drive having only a bicycle for transport so its rare for me to do shoots and I also have a young daughter diagnosed with Autism who's a handful which can limit my spare time, I cant offer accommodation for travelling models so the odds of getting to do an actual photoshoot tend to be stacked against me! but from time to time If I get the opportunity to split costs and work with another photographer locally when a model visits my hometown and does not mind teaming up with 2 photographers doing a joint shoot, I'd be happy and look forward to being able to learn and take some photos.
All of the model work on my portfolio has been achieved with the help and collaboration of a fellow photographer Paul Askins (on purpleport) to whom I'm eternally grateful. Paul has a home studio, Loads of equipment and wardrobe and most importantly has an endless stream of ideas for shoots. He puts up with me tagging along to his shoots sometimes, without Paul's help I would still be shooting insects in my back garden.
I've some ideas of shots I would love to achieve up on Pinterest:
Likes/Dislikes: For me the first priorities in a photo are the Person in it and the most important for me is eye contact with the camera. I'm really not into those the type shots where models are gazing off into the distance into absolutely nothing but an imagined scene, I often find when looking through my raw files I skip past them a lot of the time. I like sharp eyes and soft light. I tend to lean towards clothing rather than costume when it comes to outfits during a shoot. I define clothing as something somebody might wear in a normal situation, and costume as something like a prop worn for artistic merit or a theme shoot. The reason my preferences lean towards clothing vs prop outfits is because I want the viewer of an image to focus on and be drwan in to the models face first before any other distractions in the image.
