Bit the bullet and shot entirely on film again. Hopefully the results are good and come out! I still don’t entirely trust film – especially as with the last bulk lot I put in, two rolls didn’t come out.  I had this issue when you’ve reached the end of the roll of the film –…

26.02.2016 Pt. 2

Meeting with Blink Art Photography. “We don’t have a gap for you, but keep us updated.” “Your work is really striking.” “You’ve achieved so much since graduating.” Relatively helpful meeting.

Next time I do a shoot that is this much hard work to organise, I’m using a casting director! We had 5 boys and their muses. Steven and his friend, George and his Mum, Abolaji and his Mum, and Tom and his sister. Shooting within a constrained space is hard sometimes, especially when you have…
