Welcome to Brighton based bakery, The Flour Pot; a wonderful establishment full of wonderful people, making wonderful breads, buns, sandwiches and pastries – and I know, I ve tasted them!
I thoroughly enjoyed this job. It reminded me of why I do what I do and why I must continue doing what it is I do.
Shooting food – and any subject for that matter – in situ without overly manipulating the environment is a brilliantly liberating experience. Lines, textures and light naturally create wonderful compositions and all that is required of the photographer is to open his eyes and get shooting. Brilliant!
May I introduce you all to The Common. A lively trio, they are set to release their first EP in the very near future. We have high hopes.
Earlier this week we all made our way to Alexandra Palace in north London to shoot a collection of promo and cover photos.
A great afternoon it was – and really quite productive too. Lovely.
Some of the photos require some work but my computer has caused me a few issues this week. Need some time.
An especially good friend of mine has done very well for himself. His name is William and he makes jewellery – and it’s good, very good.
A few weeks back we had to organise an impromptu photo-shoot for his launch this September. After racking the brains and calling on favours, the canal running along Victoria Park was chosen and two lovely models were made ready.
I don’t normally do shoots like this – to earn money – but it was tremendously fun. Something to do again, that’s for sure.
These are contextual shots rather than super macro close-ups. They set the tone.
