EXHIBITION OF WORK AT MILTON KEYNES CENTRAL LIBRARY FROM 2/12/13.
An artistic and creative approach to photography is what i aspire to. Something just that little bit different.
Some think my work is mediocre, others love it, but whatever your thoughts, we are all here to learn.
I am a full time teacher of Art and digital photography and will use mm to gain greater experience of the industry and working with models, make up artists etc, something that I can pass on to my students. I want to expand on what I know and expand on a range of techniques where I am eager to learn from the best.
I am very keen to develop high and low key through confident models and strong MUA. The idea of a glance, a pose, an expression standing out from a bleached shot or the slither of light running over a face and body really interests me.
I work TFP for 'high key'.
Projection is something I have worked on using more creative poses and angles to push the technique of a models face and torso as a canvas. There is a great deal of life in this concept so please get in touch with your ideas.
For 'Projection' shoots, I would collect resources (images) to project and come up with a theme pre shoot which will be organised with you in advance. A selection of RAW/ DNG files would be made available alongside all images and snapseed edits. Please enquire for rates on 'Projection' shoots.
I use my own classroom at work that I convert to a studio using backdrop paper from a local contact and lighting. It is not professional but it seems to work.
I am not an experienced retoucher but I would never pass on a shot I myself am not happy with. I always consider how my vision, and possibly your ideas, can be realised through post processing. I would post 2-3 shots on mm for you to view before you receive all shots.
All shots passed on to you (JPEG/ edited and snapseed edits) will be done via dropbox in a timely manner and with regular email/ message updates.
Escorts are not a problem but please do inform me of this before hand. I will provide drinks and nibbles at all shoots so don't want people to go hungry!
And one final thing...
..I expect all those involved in a shoot to act in a professional manner. I will give 100% before, during and after every shoot and expect everyone else to do the same. If you agree to do a shoot, I would expect that all those involved maintain communication and respond to messages on MM within an appropriate time scale......
.....there are many amazing people on here but if you can't be bothered, then we shouldn't work together. Flakes should only be enjoyed with ice-cream. They have no place on MM.
