The Impor­tance Of Ma is the look­book I shot for Olivia for her final piece at Brighton Uni­ver­sity. Inspired by the min­i­mal­ist Japan­ese design, Ma.

Olivia’s designs are ele­gant and were a plea­sure to light, the shoot was more like still life pho­tog­ra­phy, as her clothes were about shape.  There was sim­plic­ity in the pal­let and sym­me­try in the shape,this was reflected in the light­ing, I only used 1 lamp,  there was no need to com­pli­cate the shoot, the clothes and poses needed noth­ing to dis­tract from them.

The grad­u­ate shows are on til Wed 14th. Olivia’s designs, mate­ri­als and the won­der­fully mounted pho­tog­ra­phy and book can be found on the 2nd floor. More info http://bit.ly/L57sBK

Us Alone - Laura Stevens + high-res version

Last night I attended a monthly event from Arts­FO­RUM, in which pho­tog­ra­phers can present their work and receive feedback.

I was wowed by Laura Stevens work. tech­ni­cally dif­fi­cult, paint­ing with light over a 1min expo­sure, shoot­ing 30 times for each sit­ting, 2 scene­r­i­ors to achieve the right pho­to­graph. All achieved in cam­era, no lay­er­ing. I was hum­bled by her brav­ery, in this series Us Alone, she shows her rela­tion­ship wor­ries and com­mit­ment pho­bias she was deal­ing with when she moved to Paris with her partner.

Laura pho­tographed strangers she met in bars, but mostly friends that they would all work out dif­fer­ence scenes and roles they could play. I think the result is beau­ti­fully inter­est­ing and dif­fer­ent. The light is fan­tas­ti­cal, but the emo­tion and detail so real.

Laura has fin­ished the project and is now crowd fund­ing for her exhi­bi­tion, she has a few days to go and some of the presents are signed prints, post­cards and shoots, I rec­om­mend peo­ple help­ing her exhibit these pho­tographs as when I saw them pro­jected last night, they took everyone’s breathe away and was applauded for her hard work and honesty.

You can also have shoots with her and work­shops as part of her Crowd­fund­ing, more info http://www.sponsume.com/project/us-alone-exhibition

Matt Mar­tin curates this monthly exhi­bi­tion which doesn’t let you use cost as an excuse not to show your work.

His idea is to pho­to­copy your photography.

It’s an open, monthly sub­mis­sion, but for Brighton Fash­ion Week he chose 14 pho­tog­ra­phers to sub­mit a fash­ion editorial.

The pho­tog­ra­phers were:

Paul Vick­ery, Valerie Phillips, Eleni Met­tyear, Alex Wein, Kevin Mason, Daniel Evans & Bren­dan Baker, Lara Ale­gre, Francesca Allen, Sam Clif­ford Hard­ing, Sam His­cox, Kenny McCracken, Natasha Bid­good, Natasha Alipour-Faridani, Matt Martin.

Last night was the first time that Valerie Phillips had exhib­ited. Her work work hit me, a naked, hairy androg­y­nous model looks at you with so much calm and con­fi­dence, it’s empow­er­ing and sexy. Matt is pub­lish­ing her zine later this month.

Matt is taken sub­mis­sions for the next Pho­to­copy Club in Lon­don, dead­line is 18th June, more info: http://tmblr.co/ZO2-gwL-67Zv

Brighton Fash­ion Week 2012 - Zeitgeist

 

I shot the Zeit­geist show for Pretty Lit­ter Mag last night. My first fash­ion show, it was Christ­mas for me, I was excited to be shoot­ing some­thing new. All the pho­tog­ra­phers in the pit were well behaved and help­ing each other, not always the case when everyone’s fight­ing to get the best shots, as time wasted is a shot lost. Get com­fort­able, get there early, get a good spot on the same level as the models.

It was a dif­fer­ent kind of the­atre for me, as it was live you could feel the rush of the audi­ence and the pho­tog­ra­phers when they loved a designer. Your fas­ci­na­tion goes wild when the pieces come alive and your shut­ter goes crazy and the piece is gone so soon. On the right model, they will sing, lots of respect to the mod­els that have the con­fi­dence to walk & show­case in a cir­cus sit­u­a­tion, those that can, shine with the fun that they are having.

So do the photographs.

The last designer put on the best show, video intro, lights changed, mod­els were more chore­o­graphed. This was more cin­e­matic. Jess Eaton show­cased here last year and since then every­one has known who she is and what she does. Pretty Lit­ter ded­i­cated a 3 page spread + a strik­ing front cover to her.

Her atti­tude and designs are fierce + fun.

Tak­ing road­side offer­ings of dead ani­mals and re-incarnating them into fash­ion pieces, via the taxi­dermy she learnt as a child, she gives death more respect by mak­ing the ani­mals live again. More inter­est­ing than the usu­ally cou­ture way of buy­ing over­priced feath­ers from sup­pli­ers, her sup­pli­ers are the pub­lic who donate their find­ings to her shop.
