#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.

when play become pictures … #headshots

Selection 1b

Despite careful planning and consideration it is more often than not, that through play and happy accidents, some strong images are created and conceived and it is my greatest passion to capture and hold onto those fleeting moments,in a whirlwind of light, excitement & expression.

Finding that angle and setting the mood, creating that truthful pic…

DSC09748

None of this would be possible without a trusted Team and helpers, and I feel in recent month this has come to life – brilliantly.

Thanks to Kristy Prince for doing the Make up and getting the sitter camera ready, rearing to go… and all those other other helping hands, holding reflectors, shuffling props and are just there when needed (you know who you are), And all of that in the fabulous space that SIMULACRA STUDIO is, pleased to be a regular on those premises and the exceptional service included.

And in the end we are sure to have captured that straightforward image as intended in between a lot of play and fun…

I leave you with this:

A comment that was made by this sitter who brilliantly went with the flow and received images to represent not just himself

but visualized some of his ambitions to his great surprise:

When Daniela Fleckenstein gets her hands (and camera) on you, you have no choice but to become awesome.

on stage #theatre … the ultimate #character #portrait

After a summer mostly on location and amongst other things : a short term contract working in theatre, seeing the characters evolve and record such in some Photos:

I reflect on what has been and how that shapes into where I want to be.

Having had he pleasure of sitting through weeks of rehearsals for this ambitious project of staging a nigerian play …with incredible depth … mission and vision, I feel I attuned my senses for people being in character…

Selection 8

Projecting an authentic sense of emotions and thus telling a story beyond the surface,

reminding us of all there is to human life in our increasingly shrinking global village…

DSC_0843-LOGO

Bringing this back to my preferred photography environment (well I may be swayed as film sets and theaters are just as amazing)

and I am thrilled to know what assignments and projects will be staged in front of my lens in coming weeks.

 Selection 2

With a new found love for expression, lighting, props and costumes …

(yes I still can do your straightforward fairly plain, white backdrop: actors headshot too – BUT)

I am sure to bring a new sense for play into the studio environment.

Selection 13

Stay tuned to see how the story unfolds…
