"Of course, when you’re visiting somewhere that contrasts greatly from your usual surroundings, you’re on a sort of photographic overdrive where everything becomes fascinating. You have to allow that to pass, in my opinion, before you begin to make good images. It’s certainly a constructive exercise to shoot away from home, as it presents a different set of challenges; principally, the unknown."
I recently spoke with The British Journal of Photography about the differences between shooting familiar and unfamiliar places. You can check out the full interview, here.
A great morning spent in conversation with Sir Chris Bonington, photographed for the Doers of London commission. More on the project can be found here: https://www.doersoftoday.com/
For the duration of my ongoing work in Romania, I will be writing a series of articles for On Landscape detailing the creative process. The articles will feature behind the scenes images taken on my D-SLR/iPhone/whatever I happen to have on me at the time as well as pictures taken by the rangers. The first piece is available to view here.
Please note, these articles are only available to those with a subscription to On Landscape magazine.
For the past seven months, I've been working on a fascinating portrait commission across London. Commissioned by Do Sport, the series presents a showcase of the modern sportsperson throughout the capital. The photographs and accompanying interviews will be produced as a photobook towards the end of 2018. Many thanks to the team at DO, producer Tom Whittle and designer Anna Clark from Blunt Crayon.
I'll be sharing a selection of the portraits here on the blog over the next few weeks.
