Being a Portrait Photographer in London...

…one gets to see all manner of building interiors . Today I was at the International Maritime Organisation, London, to take a Portrait of Tatjana Krilic for a CQI Editorial. I have walked past this building on Albert Embankment many a time, it’s the one with a seven metre high Bronze Bow of a ship protruding from the entrance of the building, it’s known as The Seafarers Memorial, however, I have never been inside. As you can imagine its interior holds many references to ships and general maritime fare. One thing that caught my eye on my reccy for suitable backgrounds to Photograph against was this huge lighthouse optic from Orfordness Lighthouse. It was decommissioned in 2014 having been in service for 99 year, and what a beauty she was, and fantastic to ping a light through to produce an interesting Portrait.

Group Portrait at TPG Headquarters in Harrow, London.

Here we have a quick turnaround Portrait commission shot at the beginning of this week of the management team at TPG in Harrow, London. As we were shooting on location at their HQ and not in a studio with an infinity cove, I was required to Photograph three groups of individuals and retouch them into a single Group Portrait.

Portrait Photography Shoot in the Heart of London

A little Portrait assignment in the sweltering heat of London today at Care Fertility, lots of anti-shine powder and air-con set to sub-zero kept the clients and Photographer happy.

Great Landscapes and Fantastic Portraits...Souvenir D'un Futur

I have only just recently been made aware of this Photographic Project by Laurent Kronenthal, I think it’s a most wonderful set of images that document a past vision of future living and the people that presently populate this future-past environment. The portraits are sublime and act as the memory within this ‘new-world’, their stature dwarfed by the architectural ideology of what the future was to behold.

Printing Your Own Portraits/Photos

https://filtergrade.com/printing-your-photos-to-become-a-better-photographer/

For a moment I thought this article was about actually getting into the Darkroom in order to print from a negative, unfortunately not! That, for me at least, was where all the magic happened and it is what drove me towards Photography while studying on my Art Foundation Course. It was the immediacy of the medium, not as immediate as a digital process, but definitely more magical. I miss the Darkroom and the Black and White Process; it was hands on and allowed you to physically place your mark onto the silver, you certainly could not beat a Black and White Portrait printed onto a heavy Fibre Based Paper Stock with an inkjet.

Sigma fp Mirrorless Compact Full Frame Camera

I think it may be time to enter the Mirrorless Camera Market, I like Sigma as a brand, their Art Lenses are fantastic, I own the 85mm 1.4 and I must say its one of my favourite lenses for portraiture. The Sigma fp seems to follow their ethos for attemtion to detail, and the video capabilities of this camera puts it at the topof my shopping list!
