This page is more for my own projects, crazy ideas, and general fun and collaborative work.
I'm always interested in collaborating with strong, quirky, and creative people, but I do do paid work offering more commercial and vanilla vibes too on my studio page on here: Splash Point Photo
You'll find me at both ends of the spectrum.. on one hand, i'm a bit of an OCD perfectionist into really strong editorial modeling/lighting, and then on the other, the polar opposite and into really amateurish candid vibes while being happy to work with quirky muses over classically beautiful and strong fashion models. Think Ellen Von Unwerth meets Rankin meets David Lachapelle meets Richard Kern. I like big, bold, brash and colourful! I like moral exploration pieces over standing around looking pretty. Shock doc over fashion, but in general I'm pretty open-minded as long as the shoot is going somewhere. Fantasy edits, composites, and constant colour filtering/shifts, really aren't my vibe.
I have a few quirky projects I'm always looking to expand on. They are implied and quirky mind, so not for the faint-hearted!
DISCLAIMER: Worth a mention is that I'm not a family photographer, I light for narrative and not to flatter a model, therefore I pick models who I think are the most suited to ideas and vibes, or as mentioned above, are muses and inspire them. Don't take it personally if I say no, and please don't try to make a case, because that shit gets quite awkward. I'm the nicest person you'll meet 'til you dick me around, combine that with being very honest and forward after I've run out of polite excuses = #awkward.
If your portfolio images are screenshotted, and/or you've made little effort to credit photographers, it's usually a dead giveaway that communication will be poor and you're not really interested in this whole modeling lark past the ego boost, so I tend to avoid them portfolios like the plague. Equally, if we discuss ideas and you go quiet at the point of commitment and with follow-up messages, you'll have a week before being blocked.
