About MeAfter a brief hiatus from working with models in order to clear my oversized 'unedited folder',
and to do some finishing
Here's the brief...
I'm Paul and I'm interested in making curious, peculiar and interesting images - I'm not interested in taking text book trend dull photos...
In subject and feel, my pictures mostly look at movement, blur, haze, YELLOW, RED, action, the weird, chaos, the unusual, emotion, CONFUSION!!!
The taking of the photo is however only the start...
What follows is the photoshop, then the printing, then the meddling with the print, the development of GOOD errors + paint, varnish, glues, glitter, oils, perfumes, making the image into an unmistakable
Once the images are finished, I then set about exhibiting them anywhere I can whether that be online, in galleries or currently most often on the street...
I'm NOT into BIG camerabags. My approach is almost completely non technical and lacks any learned and traditional merit. I like to use simple instant, digital and film equipment combined with unconventional DIY lighting to produce striking images that always look like MY images - unmistakeable...
I've worked with more than 60 models over 9 years. I like to work with both amateurs and professionals. I'm always looking for new people to work with who don't have idiotic hangups about amateurism and who make the effort to turn up when something is arranged!
One thing I'm not interested in is having a 'friends' list of undoubted beauties who sit there
but don't reply to messages or prevaricate on arrangements with one line messages, so please don't waste everyones time. Engage with me only if you're genuinely interested in being involved or else have a nice day someplace else!
ON THE DAY...
If you model for me, you'll spend very little time waiting on lighting or faffing about with lenses. I'm generally quiet (MY HEAD IS BUSY!!! I don't have space for babbling crap niceities or fiddling for alleged perfection)
I AM NOT DAVID BAILEY (though I'm sure he's a lovely fella) 'OOH YES!!!! THAT'S SIMPLY WONDERFUL!!!!' click click click
Working with me is a question of standing there and moving about whilst I fire off hundreds of shots more or less at random at all kinds of settings wrong and right, before during and after your best pose, using different film speeds, out of focus, in focus, over-exposed. My photography isn't a fine art, it's mostly messing about exploring, taking risks and keeping myself from getting bored...
To see a small fraction of my work to date have a look at my portfolio on here and the following links:
Studio & Locations
I have a small LIVE/WORK studio space + a LARGE roof space + lots of props, lights, chairs, wigs, hats, masks, clothes and ideas. I'm located right next door to the new Olympic Wonderland in East London. There are plenty of good locations in and around the area of all types: woods, rivers, urban, parkland, industrial etc...
Terms & Conditions:
Like everyone, I should be STINKING RICH!!! But I'm not and money is habitually tight. I don't currently make too much £$£$£$ out of making these images so I'm exclusively looking for TFP/CD + finshed printed and meddled images. Should images featuring you go on to make me money now or in the future, I will of course share the pot. For that matter the more you help me network my website and help make sales the richer we all can be...
OK, that's about it.
If you're interested, please do get in touch!
All the very best
