A Lot Can Happen In Year

April 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Ok so every now and again I take a look over old work, find some of my best pictures, and dare I say some of my less best pictures. There's a lot to learn from old work and it's a rewarding exercise.

Those of you that know me will know that whilst I've been taking pictures of people forever I've only been full time for a little over a year.

In order to build a portfolio,  practice a few ideas and just generally have some fun I ran a portrait marathon. On reflection I must have been brave or mad,  or a combination.  It turned into 7 sessions in a single day.  Some individual,  some group. I forget the details but it was over 12 hrs of shooting.  Add to that that my chosen subjects were all teenagers ranging from 13 to 18. Anything could happen.

What did happen was actually quite good.  I learnt a lot, tried a lot and enjoyed myself  lot.  Now 12 months on and looking at some of those pictures again, although my style and technique have advanced some of the pictures from that day still rate as my favourite ever.

So thanks to the model volunteers, for their time and their patience on that day you don't realise how much you helped me.
