Image Magic

Working with models…

I am not really what you’d call a ‘people’ photographer. That is, I don’t do portraits or weddings. I have done them, but they are not my preferred photography genre. However I attempted for the first time ever a concept shoot last September. A friend happened to have got dressed up for a ball, and when I spotted his pics, I told him I’d love to photograph him in that costume. It was rather fun, and Peter was a great model. He came up with many of the poses himself. A natural! The idea was for me to use the photos in my artwork, thus giving myself, and him, some unique images.

This one is the second one I’ve worked on. The first one was extremely successful and I was keen to do more. The first one, titled “As Time Collapses”, has been published in a fine art magazine. Watch the next post…
