I feel very fortunate to have been asked to work alongside a variety of small as well as larger businesses on a range of different creative projects over the years. Most recently I have worked with Entertainment Weekly (creating a miniature Fargo set), BBDO Group (the Little People being photographed on the streets of London) and SONY (the Little People helping to launch Sony’s newest mobile phone). I therefore can’t wait to find out what 2016 has in store for me. As well as having an expansive library of images that are available for use in projects such as ad-campaigns, I also offer the service of creating bespoke artwork for businesses in order to meet their needs. For example, if your business has an image-based creative idea that involves light painting or some querky macro work, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch – I love working to help businesses realise the full potential of their ideas through my photography.
I am a very passionate landscape photographer and I have spent years working hard to become better at capturing the special places that I visit. My current landscape portfolio focuses on the island of Guernsey (where I lived for many years) and more recently the Inner & Outer Hebrides in Scotland.
My Light Paintings are all created using very long exposures, and are primarily taken at night. I use various light tools to create objects within the landscape, and I am present in each image the whole time the photograph is being taken – I remain invisible as I am constantly moving around and never illuminate myself during the exposure. All of the light sculptures are created on location. No post-editing trickery is ever used. I can create bespoke Light Paintings to order so please let me know if you would like to discuss this idea further.
The Little People (It’s a Small World!):
Have you met the Little People yet? 12 years ago I obtained my BA Hons degree in Fine Art Photography essentially after spending 4 years playing with and photographing toys. These ‘objects’ have always intrigued me and I have always been fascinated by how the act of play is perceived by others as we get older. About 5 years ago I decided that it was time to once again delve into the world of toys – an I am glad that I did. This work has proved to be rather popular and I cannot wait to see where the Little People take me next…
High speed photography is something that was well out of my comfort zone until I recently decided to dedicate a lot of time to learning more about it. I bought a drip kit and ‘time machine’ from the US and spent many days trying to get the results that I was content with. It has been a very steep learning curve but is so rewarding once the magic starts happening. I mainly use water and milk that I colour using food dye.
A long time ago in an Art School far, far away…I got told off by my tutors for taking photographs of Star Wars toys whilst working my way through my Fine Art Photography degree. Well, it’s finally time to return to this theme and pick things up where I left off. I hope my old tutors REALLY enjoy this particular body of work. Chewie – take her to point five past light speed…
My Light Painting workshops are a huge amount of fun. Each participant will be involved in creating a series of new work and I can therefore guarantee that each individual will go home with a series of impressive new work.
A brief description of the process: LP is a photographic technique that involves very long exposure times that are normally captured at night time. My classes are aimed at amateur and professional photographers alike – It really doesn’t matter what level of photographer you are. During each long exposure, the photographer enters the space being photographed and moves around hand-held light sources. Because it is dark, the light will ‘freeze’ inside the image allowing the photographer to create light sculptures that appear to float within the landscape. I can assure you, if you have never been light painting before, prepare to have your mind blown! I teach regular group sessions as well as tailored 1:1 sessions if you would prefer more private tuition.
Each session can be seriously influenced by things like the weather, the stars, the amount of available moonlight and cloud cover. No two Workshops are ever the same. Please contact me for further information about my LP workshops.
