I love to make portraits of interesting people. And April has been a very interesting month indeed. Artists, musicians and actresses. Their talent and beauty shines through. Thanks to all who helped to make it happen. Makeup for AHOUKa & Maureen shoot, Florence Thonet. Stylisme for AHOUHKa, Bea Pendesini. May? Onwards and upwards 🙂
Messing about in my home studio. Model: my son Aidan. Cymbal: Istanbul. Camera: Sony a7s. Lights: Kino Flo. Processing: Lightroom and Photoshop.
My first foray into filmmaking. Shot with a Canon PowerShot G9 and edited with Adobe Premier Pro, the short film follows the trials and tribulations of my young son, Aidan, as he tries to master the art of making noise. I decided to shoot in B&W to give the proceedings a documentary feel, reminiscent of the “Cinéma vérité” style of filmmaking. A bit ropey around the edges – especially the sound quality – but hopefully it’s still worth a viewing.
