Part time fashion photographer based just outside Cardiff with ten years experience working in London, Paris, New York shooting for most of the main fashion magazines and fashion designers. I still have contacts in the industry and hope to be shooting the occasional editorial from time to time.
but now primarily I am looking to develop my own work with the aim of publishing a coffe table photography book sometime in 2017, I have the project and have done the research, now it's time to start shooting the outline of the book before seriously pushing the idea and shooting the main body. I am also hoping to start creating a body of work for exhibitions, this may kick off with the book, and then start to develop a body of collect able prints for sale to photographic art collectors And the general public.
Looking for a certain type of model to work in collaboration with on concepts that I have already drawn up, energy is crucial, not just the physical and emotional effort put in during the shoot but the character in the final image has to have that energy jumping off the page, I approach a shoot a bit like making a short film, I am looking for believability in the people I work with and the ability to become someone else on film. This is the crucial ability to bring something to the camera above and beyond just a beautiful face or a great body. It's finding the essence of a character, the ability to become that character and then play the role with vigour energy and conviction.
Also looking for an amazing make up artist that understands skin, tones, touch, and sensuality. Someone that can apply the smallest amount for the biggest effect. Can make someone's skin come to life, make the viewer want to touch it. An artist.
