Hi I am Craig. I am a Birmingham based photographer with a few years experience. I work for pay or trade depending on the assignment. I generate lots of my own projects but also shoot for designers and collaborate with models on their projects. I am based in Birmingham but UK mobile. I am often in Leicester and Nottingham shooting. I tend to hire studio's as and when I need to and regularly also shoot from the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. I really enjoy location shooting whether it be homes, hotels, derelict location, woods, street etc. I find it keeps things fresh in that no two shoot are the same, there's always something different to think about.
I find that categorisation of some genres of photography to be very difficult. I prefer to shoot with a theme or message in mind. Whatever genres are crossed, are crossed. My current personal projects are around shooting clothed, nude or implied nude from the point of view of making the viewer feel part of the image and connected to the subject. I also enjoy landscapes. In both area's I am inspired by some of the old masters. My post production work is mostly photographic, I do not get into lots of digital art, for me it's all about the photograph and applying techniques that support the theme/message. I also have a penchant for monochrome and feel that I am developing (no pun intended) an eye for it.
I am hoping to connect with like minded people, models in particular in order that we can generate work and help each other to achieve our respective artistic goals.
