I'm Paul Holroyd, I've been taking photographs since my early teens and producing digital composite images for nearly 20 years. I have a degree in the technical side of photography and am an Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society. Professionally I work on images as part of a large creative team, still photography is where I try to stretch my creativity for myself. The composite images involve so much work beyond the initial shoot (I create almost all of the sets, costumes, props etc as well as doing the photography) I can't do collaborative/tfp shoots or commissioned work.
I'm principally interested in creating images inspired by mythology, Victorian neoclassical art, modern fantasy art and illustration, gothic and early epic cinema. The images often involve combining people with specially made costumes, props, sets (usually miniatures) and and the very occasional computer generated bit.
I have my own dedicated creative space which depending on where I am in a project serves as both a workshop and studio, its not as big as I'd like but it allows me to work at the relaxed pace I prefer. I am looking to work with people who can act out a role to fit into a previsualised image or improvise on a theme. My normal way of working is to pay models for their time, they are welcome to use images in their portfolio but finished images should be regarded as a bonus, not part of the deal. I don't use other peoples stock photographs, so producing all the elements of an image can take a huge amount of time and as this is something I often have very little of so the number of final images produced can be quite small and appear a very long time after a shoot.
