Lunchtime and Leadenhall Market

On Monday I spent a rushed hour shooting around Leadenhall Market for a photo feature. The deadline rather took me by surprise but I got it done Рalbeit in the nick of time.

Welcome to Leadenhall, food and flowers – and a little leather.

Agent Speak

Portraiture is the most perfect synthesis of chat and shot. I love chatting and I especially like taking photographs. It’s wonderful.

Occasionally¬†I shoot portraits of estate agents for a glossy freemium magazine, Absolutely Notting Hill. It’s quite enjoyable meeting the (supposed) enemy – and it’s even better bossing them about. The second guy was particularly fun and more than happy to take the lead – as you will soon see.

I quite fancy shooting some documentary portraiture very soon.

City and Angel

Earlier this month I faced my first editorial beginner bashing. I somehow believed that I was meeting only the designer to discuss a photo feature on Old Spitalfields Market. This just wasn’t the case, and I soon found myself before a handful of faces, eager to suss me out.

Sat in a small, sweltering glass cage, I fast realised that this was an interview – and I didn’t have my portfolio. Really quite the error that pitched me against the chief photographer. As I was soon to discover, this bloke was only teaching me a few harsh, but very necessary lessons. In the meanwhile, he tore me to shreds. Scary and exciting.

And thank you very much Zest Media. I am now a freelancer for City and Angel magazine.

Here are a few photos for the Spotlight article on Old Spitalfields Market:
