East Midlands based headshots photographer
Professional photography for commercial portraits and actors’ headshots covering the East Midlands.
I can photograph in any location of your choice, with my portable studio. This has allowed me to photograph portraits from the middle of a field to the Royal Albert Hall. I cover all areas of Leicestershire, Derby and Nottingham and most areas of the UK.
Since 2009, I’ve been commissioned to photograph various national actors and actresses in the theatre, artists, dancers and numerous businesspeople. I am here to help show who you are and what you’d like to represent.
So, Isoelegant said to me, “Let’s do a shoot with water”. Maybe she was thinking of next to a river or lake. I thought, let’s throw buckets of water over each other. We set up in the studio, with a complicated mechanism involving squirrels & rope to release the water. After a bit, we decided to simplified things by getting Adrian involved.
It was only after a few goes that Adrian had the idea to warm up the water…
I’ve not shown much stuff from my work in studios, so I thought I’d get in some friends for a photo shoot. I asked Danni Spooner & Carise ZM for some 20’s/30’s style, but with a modern twist. And that’s just what they did.
As well as shooting digitally, I thought I’d take the large format camera for a spin. This is Sinar F1 large format camera, where the film negatives are 5″ x 4″. It’s enormously difficult to focus, so you may notice a bit of arty soft focus with the film images. I’m going to make that focusing easier, soon. For the technical, the film was Ilford FP4+ developed in ID-11.
Thanks to Derby Theatre for the chair & David Parkin for the lamp. And thank you to Woodrow Studios for the backdrop, which was actually hand painted in the studio.
