I am a freelance photographer and digital artist working in moving image and sound/music based in the West Midlands. I am looking for ambitious and, in particular, creative models who enjoy thinking out of the box. Let me know your ideas and let's see what we can achieve.
Due to other commitments I am now only looking for shoots that would be mutually beneficial for myself and the model/s. I am interested in anything artistic, quirky, dark/gothic, fetish or generally unusual, so if you feel that you have any strong or compelling ideas that fit with any of the above then don't hesitate to inbox me, either here or via my Facebook link below.
I have long held a fascination of witchcraft representations in fine art paintings and would like to recreate some of these in photography. Some nudity/semi nudity/implied would be needed but will be shot tastefully and discretely. Work, strictly on a TF basis. Get in touch if interested
***THE SYMBOLIC SIGNIFICANCE OF THE NORTHERN EUROPEAN FOREST***
For centuries the idea of the dark, deep forest has compelled people of Northern Europe. From fairy tale such as Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel to the demons of witchcraft, folklore and horror the Northern European forest, with its tall birch and pine trees seems to beckon us into another world, both as enchanted as it is dangerous. The forest is seductive; a sensual yet deadly place. I have been working on several forest shoots for over a year now (mostly shot in a private forest nearby where I am based) and want to both expand and continue this theme. My interest is about placing human subjects incongruously into this natural setting; this could be either inappropriately attired for the setting (eg ball-gown, dinner dress, swimwear, etc) or even to full or implied nudity (the notion of being naked in a forest is as bizarre as it is compelling). Whilst this is not to everyone’s tastes it may appeal to some of you on here so I am inviting you to drop me a line if you are interested and we can discuss.
BIZARRE OUTDOOR SHOOT
For some time I have had a strange and recurring image in my head that some day I’d like to capture photographically. The scene: a very muddy countryside track in winter, in places the mud is almost a foot deep. Down the track walks a woman. She is dressed in stockings, suspenders, smart trench coat and wellington boots. She is well made up (bright lipstick, immaculate hair) and exceptionally glamourous. The reason I find this mental image compelling is because of the hidden narrative it may contain: who is this woman? Why is she dressed so glamourously in such a setting yet also has wellingtons on? Where is she going? Is she meeting someone? Give me a shout if this sort of quirkiness appeals.
WRITTEN ON HER SKIN
A palimpsest is defined as ‘a very old document on which the original writing has been erased and replaced with new writing’. In turn this itself maybe overwritten and in time the document may contain traces of many documents and many histories much in the manner we can read environmental conditions from tree rings. I would like to organize a shoot with a model in which these principles, through the use of body paint, were applied to the human body. Please contact me if interested in discussing and we can work out the mechanics of how to achieve this.
