I have been recently asked what I do in my “down time” when not photographing glamour or families. This got me thinking that maybe you don’t know the other side to me, one I am proud of and allows me to express my creative visions and bring them to life.
I got my first taste of the weird and wonderful out of the box photography when I was invited to a creative shoot that became known as “Zipper Face” between the model and photographer they had the theme. After a full day of shooting I was hooked and wow did my mind go wild. It was just so easy and fun to work with model Angelic Sinz and her offsider (who is another photographer come model) Jason.
It was that much fun that I had to do another shoot with them. We threw around some ideas and in the end I wanted to do a bride of something. In my head it was similar to the romance and wedding of Morticia and Gomez. I had the perfect location, an abandoned tunnel. Again using Angelic Sinz and Jason as the models the vision came to life and took on a life of it’s own.
Another vision came from a collective group on facebook who would use a photo as inspiration and the group would make it their own. I call this one the “Doll and Lamp” shoot. This shoot was done in a studio and a collaboration between model, clothes designer, makeup artist and myself as photographer. All these people and elements go into making these creative visions successful.
I have already started planning a couple this year as these thoughts tend to give me sleepless nights and lots of daydreams. I am always happy to collaborate with like minded people and create something special, weird or unique. It takes more than a photographers creative vision to make this type of shoot successful and I never forget that. I have worked now with many talented makeup artists and models and without you these are not possible. If you are interested in my creative side please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and pricing.
Until next week.
