Hello and thank you for visiting
Although listed as Brighton, I am in fact based in Saltdean (BN2). I joined Purpleport in 2017, then deactivated for a while and have now returned this year but have never stopped working on my photography.
Away from Purpleport, I have been hired by clients for business development images, actor headshots, family portraits and weddings. I also work part time as a music technician.
In my personal time I like photographing model portrait and fashion. I enjoy working with juxtaposition, shallow depth of field. I enjoy working with models who can bring boldness, confidence and engagement to the project.
I like my images to appear bright, bold and captivating but also enjoy shooting sentimental, dark images in the form of chiaroscuro. In my chiaroscuro work, I try to capture deep emotions, like the fine art work of Caravaggio and Tintoretto.
Projects I am developing:
Chiaroscuro portrait work with male subjects: I have shot low key projects with female models and I would like to capture chiaroscuro images with male subjects.
Portrait work with fruit: Fruit appears in myths from around the world especially to symbolise abundance, temptation (and even death in the Godfather films). I would like to explore this symbolism in portrait work.
Skater/Roller Girl urban portrait: More of a summer project but I would love to capture a model on wheels.
I would also like to continue with more urban fashion/portrait work of both male and female models.
So if any of these projects interest you or if you have a idea that you would like to put to me, please feel free to message.
