Behind the scenes – A week in the life (ish)

Sometimes everything gets a little too work, work, work, pretty picture, good looking people around here. So I thought I’d go for a real “Behind the scenes” post, aka frames from the road, for this weeks post.

So there you go, a glimpse behind the curtain, the general crap one sees during a week traversing the country.

Leica M9 – Konica Hexanon-M 50mm B&W Jpeg

Contax G2 – 45mm Zeiss Planar – Kodak Tri-X

I just had these two frames sat next to one another on the screen and found the comparison interesting. Not a million miles apart to be honest.

Leica M9, 50mm Konica Hexanon-M f/2 (iso320 @ f/2) – B&W in camera JPEG plus a little Lightroom tweak to get it how I like

Contax G2, 45mm Zeiss Planar f/2, Kodak Tri-X (@400 @f/2) – Developed in Kodak D76(1:1) then Plustek Opticfilm 7400i scan (not rescanned or cleaned hence drying marks)

Two days, Three faces. (Less Gear, More Photo)

Simple as that, two days, three faces for me to meet this week.

Tuesday saw me working with A-Models and Meg Lindow MUA. Here I had the luck to work in some beautiful light with Logan and Sophia.

Then after a rather late night call up Wednesday saw me working with Boss Models Anna Caradice-French and the always charming Thembi Mkandla MUA. Again spoilt by glorious light.

All three of these photographs used natural light, just goes to show the diversity of what can be achieved with minimal equipment.

Exhaustive kit list used for these;

Leica M9 – 50mm

Contax G2 – 45mm – Fujifilm film stock.

That’s it, about as simple as you can get. My kind of shoots these.

Photography Monthly Interview

A few months back Photography Monthly expressed an interest in featuring my Triptychs project, after a little of back and forth we finally came up with this interview. It’s always a bit odd doing these kind of things but enjoyable at the same time, so for those who want to see the piece here you are.

Council Estate of Mind – The Quarterly #2 Editorial

So I can finally share this piece with you after the exclusivity agreement has lapsed.

This was shot last year with a super strong team made up primarily from boss models, exclusively for the fresh up coming indy mag the quarterly. These guys are a super supportive crew, trying a new method of running a magazine. Basically the general theme is agreed upon and then the creatives are allowed free reign within that to create ideas for submissions. The passion and ethos behind the magazine isn’t going unnoticed by the “establishment” either, with shout outs and features from the likes of bjp & creative review, smashing kickstarter campaigns and winning design awards. It was an honour to create something for these guys.

So to the piece;
