At Christmas I got to meet my niece, Maisie, for the first time. She’s awesome in that way an unashamedly proud uncle knows she is. Naturally I shot a bunch of photos of her, a small selection of which you can view here.
However, my favourite photo might be this outtake, taken by her father, in which Maisie begins perfecting a facial expression that will be much needed when she has to listen to her uncle telling stories. An expression I call “the affectionate skeptic”.
I shot a whole bunch of photos of my friend Jessie the other week. Here are three. I’m still working out how creative I want to be with the others. Simple colour tweaking, additional graphical elements, or all-out scene creations like the third one below?
Here are a few photos I shot one afternoon in Madrid last week. I was there as a guest lecturer on photo editing at the IE School of Communication and had a pretty decent time of it.
Here’s a set of photos of my friend Jane Douglas that I shot the other week. I feel like this shoot was a bit of a cheat as Jane is very photogenic, so my job was incredibly easy.
Last week I had a photoshoot session with my friend Anna. General opinion is that she’s beautiful and awesome. I like to think I caught some of those qualities in these photos.
The rest of the photos (slightly more NSFW) after the jump…
Some office photo shoots are more fun than others…
I met somebody last week. I like taking photos of him, so I’ve started a tumblr for just that purpose. (You iPhone users can also see the pics by following me on Instagram)
If you follow me on twitter then you’ll already know that I’ve spent the last two months getting a tattoo. Two months and a total of ten hours work. I didn’t know it would take quite so long when I first walked into the tattoo parlour. I was eager. I’d spent a long time thinking about what kind of tattoo I wanted and where (black ink, dot-work, right forearm) and had done my research to find an artist in London who worked in the style I wanted (Rod Medina of King’s Cross Tattoo Parlour - I recommend him 100%). It’s a sizeable tattoo, yet not huge. But detailed dot-work like this takes time.
I love it.
The reason for the blog post is I’ve been asked to provide photos. The tattoo has now healed so I snapped a few before leaving for work this morning. Here they are.
