Timelapse – Carpark series

I’ve begun a new project for me to start working on. The goal is to perform a time-lapse on every car park in Norwich. I love a good time lapse which has grown and keeps growing from watching Casey Niestat’s videos on YouTube every day. His filmmaking skills seem to impress me every day with…

Martini Product shot

After I shot the Smirnoff vodka bottle, I got a lot of good feedback from everyone. My friends and peers on the course was shocked at how well i got the shot, and tutors Richard and Andi approved it. It was a simple set up, three speed lights, a tripod, 70D + 100-300mm lens, a…

Images for graphic student Luke Tulip

I took some landscape pictures to try out the genre for myself in my third exhibition brief and for Lukes reflective journal. The designs and spreads he had done really work well but before the designs were on top of the images, I wasn’t keen on the photographs I had taken. I wanted to jump…

Smirnoff Product shot

This took 5 hours in my kitchen, into the early morning by myself, my camera, Jake’s telephoto lens and three speedlights. But I am very pleased with the outcome, making product photography a direction I might take. Andi’s reaction was: ‘That’s not yours.’ So I take that as a huge compliment reaching such a high…

Lighting workshop week 20

Mid-Term review

This will be a memorable day for me. After a shocking presentation and turning up late, Andi said I had ‘failed’. As soon as he said that to me, the word Fail felt like it didn’t stop being repeated. It was hard, and standing in front of a group having this word repeatedly in my…

Assisting for tutor Richard Drury

When preparing my exhibition at The Open, I bumped into James and Richard at the right time when Richard was looking for an assistant. I say the right time, but if I wasn’t up early in the morning on my week off in uni, I wouldn’t have had this opportunity, again creating your own luck….

Second exhibition live

Above is a portrait of myself after I had finished putting my prints up for public viewing at The Open. It was a fantastic opportunity to show my work for two weeks in front of a crowd gathering feedback from a feedback book and contacts leaving my businesses cards there. It was a big step…

East Gallery – Extra Terrestrial

Today after the brainchild sessions, i went to see the work featured in the NUA Gallery by Tess Jaray and Alison Wilding. Art has never been my ‘thing’ even when I started to take Photography seriously as a profession and passion. Art is weird to me, sometimes it makes sense, 98% it doesn’t make sense…

Food Photography practice 4+5

Here are some more shots I have been getting after cooking my meals at home. This is mainly getting really comfortable with the lighting and composition on the food I really like.
