inspires me and brings development to a project….
it’s the alchemy that brings the elements together….
below are some examples with brief explanations behind some of the set ups used.
A Different Setting Can Change The Game.
I’ve worked mostly on location in my career behind the camera so i’ve developed an eye for what might match a scene or backdrop.
These colours and textures can help a portraits definition and stand out.
I suggested to Jo that we ran the shoot with minimal make up and capture a range of images that portrayed her natural beauty and strength as a woman, to be direct but open to the camera without necessarily ‘striking’ a pose.
My rationale behind this direction was seeing Jo’s features in the classical purist sense, my motivation was the portrait “Girl with the Pearl Earring’ by Johannes Vermeer.
We used my B2 Profoto with a softbox and grid as a key light and my A1 as a rim light for Jo’s hair.
Fine Art Portraiture
On playing with a theme here this couple were portraying a king and queen, the king having the stature on the throne while the queen, though supportive and in the background is the one in their relationship holding the strength.
We used simply used a Profoto B1 with a beauty dish.
This image is taken from a series i shot with executive chef Tim Hughes.
We collaborated on a portfolio for the Caprice Holdings chain of restaurants. The images are taken ‘in situ’ so giving an atmospheric feel to the overall dining experience.
A kit of dedolights was used with a soft box and kicker lights provided by lastolite reflectors.

The building was completely refurbished with a blend of contemporary and classic.
Shot with a Canon Mk 3 with a T/S 24mm and long exposures and a 1.4 50mm for mood and detail. A book was then compiled and published for the client.
This has nothing to do with photography
a few thoughts i’ve noted…i’m a keen writer and have had a few pieces published, no lens reviews here but rather another creative element and form of expression….
Mention the term 'blacksmith' and if you're anything like me you'll conjure up an image of some hardy guy in front of an anvil clad in a pair of chaps, with a hammer, a pair of tongs to hand and some horses hoof clamped between his legs. It is a trade that...
My good mate Ken lies innocently in the centrepiece of this construction, though is certainly not to blame for any of the apocalyptic finish! I simply like juxtaposing images and see how that can work, whether they fit. One is of him on The Millenium Bridge, the other...
When I first came across this term I didn’t know what to make of it, not some heavy fisted marketing term for Popeye potential wine swillers surely? Excuse me but it conjures up visuals of washing detergent, which I’d like to keep a safe distance from my wine rack...
