Hello. I am a photographer and film maker.
I am on here to meet interesting people to collaborate with in order to make some striking and emotive pictures.
I make a living from my photography, and if you want professional prints for your portfolio I can help out for a reasonable fee.
Visually I like to do stuff that's dramatic, dark, sexy, sleek, mysterious, surreal, challenging, vivid, memorable, funny strange and funny haha.
I am mainly interested in working with characters who have something strong inside of themselves. Beauty of a kind comes in handy but I'm after something going on in the eyes more than anything else. I'm looking for pictures that can't be found anywhere else. I love telling stories in a single frame.
The photographers I admire are Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Dianne Arbus, Weegee, Martin Parr, Man Ray, Harry Borden, Cecil Beaton, Richard Kern, Nan Goldin and Sarah Moon.
I like films a lot and especially the work of Powell and Pressburger, Peckinpah, Kubrick, Herzog and Film noir in general. This influences my pictures as much as anything. I am very into creating classic lighting styles. Sometimes I make pop videos and short movies too.
I was a Goth and still know all the words to Bela Lugosi's Dead.
I've cheered up now though.
My shoots are fun, I've spent a lot of time in front of the camera so I know how to look after my subjects. The music's improved too.
