Since the summer of 2012 I have been shooting the Urban Portrait series. I had always been interested in photographing the urban landscape and as an accomplished portrait photographer the series has become a huge passion.
I was really moved to get a foreword to the series from the hugely talented rock photographer Ian Tilton. Ian has just released his new book on the Stone Roses and is famous for his iconic images of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and the Manchester music scene.
The ongoing project is hopefully destined to become a book and I am currently looking for partners. These partners will get an advert within the book as well as package of goodies! Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved!
As a slight side project I undertook a few Urban Portraits with a difference. These are Urban Portraits by Night. I had two volunteers, Max and Connor and we hooked up in Crewe to do some portraits under the yellow/ orange glow of street lighting. My flash lighting needed to be slightly different to the day Urban Portraits as I wanted to maintain that colour cast. The experiment worked very well and the two images work very well as part of the overall Urban Portrait series!
I am also available for private commissions. If you fancy your own shoot then make a booking and you can select a location. Its just £49 and the price includes an 18×12 inch print of your favourite image!
