Photosurgery #studiomansionhouse

Studiomansionhouse 1

The famous chair that had quite few visitors lately and many stories to tell. 😉 If you have any queries in regards to anything Photography related ; do come and see us!

Available to be visited on the second floor of the Mansion:

Every Wednesday night. #FREE #EventStudiomansionhouse

So far I had queries not just about cameras and lenses, but also questions and sneak peeks behind the scenes of a headshot and portrait session. Through talks and chats it is amazing what all parties (including me) discover and learn.

I love sharing my experience and insights as well as the space and set up. Email me as these free sessions are limited in spaces, and I would want to make sure I have enough cups of teas and biscuits.

Looking forward to meeting you at #studiomansionhouse

TIME FOR PHOTOS

W SELECTION 7_wm

Well now, there is so much happening on this end; that I have a little neglected to share all that there is…First and for most I am now settling into my new Office and Studio space where i certainly had the pleasure of testing all sorts of lighting and ideas …. and it is only the beginning, but here a sneak peak of the most recent work, forever growing my Team: of Assistance Make up,  prop Makers, Designers and all that!

And here just to illustrate , what difference it makes to have those additions to the creative process of Photography … a little BEFORE shot of the model ,

Portfolio 2016 part 2

Having reflected and pondered over 2016 , here a selection of images I posted on FB for my 21 day countdown to the new year… keen to do better and bigger this year , and oh my good there are some exciting projects in the pipeline.

…and those location shoots with a little more of a story and a hint of acting -images beyond the surface itself… Well I am certain to build on that this year.

location-2

Forever refining the balance of luck, observation, people, light,location, story … to find just that moment:

so fleeting that it is gone before it’s existence could be fully appreciated- but yet captured with one single click.

However the #indian #wedding must have been one of the bigger highlights that

the brash colorful challenge provided me!

…stay tuned. 2017 here we come! 🙂

#character #portraiture … more than just play !??!?

SELECTION 2_wmarked

So … having spend a considerable amount on filmsets in recent months (as supporting artist and BTS Photographer) for some major big feature and small TV productions and short films, having had the pleasure to meet many peers in the industry with time on hand to chat … my curiosity about the place of a creative character portraiture was yet again awakened. Let alone my inspiration fueled …

SELECTION 1_wmarked

With a an undeniable saturation of enthusiastic and ambitious freelancers, that populate London, that are looking to find footing in the industry – perhaps  as Extras, perhaps as Actors in the making …all the same the representation of playfulness and ability to represent character, is what may just set you apart.

With the understanding that there is a argument to be had in between , typecasting, branding and showing versatility and ability to enact what is asked of you. I have taken my camera to those that are happy to explore with me , possible advancements of this niche – giving play a purpose!?

SELECTION 3_wmarked

More often than not , it has come up in conversation that fellow Actors, Supporting artists and Extras felt that they are giving a particular role, character that not necessarily encompasses all that they are , can be or wish to be – the unwanted typecast that some agents just seem to stick with.

I am wondering how this very Agent would feel, if they were to receive a picture communicating the subjects ability to do different, to be adventurous and playful!? Or would these pictures not provide content for your hungry facebook feeds – showing your interest passion, commitment,

‘playfullness’ !?

Or just a little quirky image to look at and be reminded of the willingness to play … the phone may start ringing … , perhaps.

However I am really keen to hear your opinion and suggestions, or if you allow me to dress you up and set a scene for you and picture, explore the possible function … Get in touch.
