It seems the blog is suffering from a lack of updates at the moment, mainly due to time pressure. Stacks of new work has been shot over the last month or so with much more in the coming months so I’ll pop things up when and where I can.

Here’re are a couple from yesterday, a hair shoot with Rick Roberts to produce his final collection for the National Hairdressing Awards. We shot earlier this year and it’s from those that he made it to the final, these are the ones that he will win or lose on. No pressure then . . . . . . .

Plus the moment in between the moments, one that won’t make the cut but I love it all the same.

Just in case you thought I may have run off, here we are back with just a subtle colour one.
This kind of image really speaks volumes about why it’s important for working fashion, beauty and commercial photographers to shoot tests. These are unpaid shoots where all those involved give up time in the hope of creating something new and different for portfolio use.
Take this image for example, the idea and concept I’d brought was a kind of black glitter beauty look. I’d spoken to Meg the MUA and we’d nailed down our inspiration images and ideas of how we planned to create it. From the start I had B&W images in my head yet the freedom of my own creative brief means that after a little post production I create this (alongside the pre-envisaged shots).

When self-doubt starts to give way to self-realisation

web | blog | facebook

I’ll be honest the further I progress in my photographic career the more self doubt I develop. I’m plagued with more indecision now than ever before, I try to be honest in my work yet feel somehow diluted and broken down. I surround myself with a strong team in an attempt to mask my own feeling of being one step from the edge of a cliff.
Perhaps this is the price I pay for my art, I don’t ask for people to like my work, I just want to create something of worth. Without that my whole purpose is meaningless.
Then maybe understanding this is all part of the process, perhaps the doubt shows that I care.

Very first peeks from yesterdays shoot with the team. If ever a behind the scenes video should have been made yesterday was it. We had more plot twists and emotional highs & lows than most tv dramas.

Despite the images showing otherwise, the weather was what can only be described as challenging.
