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 🙂Sean_Hayes_Photographer_African Queen_AHOUHKa .jpgCedric_Drums_O.R.A. .jpgSean_Hayes_Photographer_March 2.jpg

 

It’s been busy these last couple of weeks. I’m delighted I’m starting to get briefs that allow me to create the kind of portrait work I love to do – simple, yet with a lot of punch. The Belgian cartoonist Nix (http://www.nix.be) was a real pleasure to shoot. I love working with people who are passionate about what they do and Nix made my job of capturing his cheeky sense of humour easy and fun. Just as it should be. Onwards and upwards. Sean_Hayes_Photographer_MarchSean_Hayes_Photographer_March 2 (1)Sean_Hayes_Photographer_MarchSean_Hayes_Photographer_March 3 (1)

 

Quick update. I’m pleased to announce that I have a new agent for my professional portrait and reportage photography. His name is Jean-Claude Meert. A Belgian national with who I’ve had the pleasure working with on many advertising projects over the years. Jean-Claude has a vast amount of experience producing advertising TV spots with his own production company and as TV Producer with TBWA Brussels. Should you wish to contact him with a view to working together on a project his email is : jcmadethat@gmail.com

American photographer Christian Peacock has restored my faith in photography. Digital has reduced the human spirit to a polarised code – you are nothing but a combination of zeros and ones. Not true. Christian shot these beautiful creamy portraits with film. Old school with a touch of the old masters’ aesthetic. The people in these photographs exist. They breathe. They have lives. They have loves. They have triumphs and disasters. They are human. Humanity captured gracefully by a very talented photographer. In my book, old school is doing something real well; with spirit and passion. Christian should be proud of his old school credentials. Please check out his “Making of” blog and learn how analog photography changes the relationship between shooter and subject – the secret sauce that digital has all but forgotten.  Source: Blog — Christian Peacock Photography
