Thank you to Profoto's Ailish Cook for interviewing me about my portraiture, recent projects and awards. I’ll be speaking for Profoto at the upcoming Photography Show in Birmingham from 16th - 19th March 2019. Read the full interview on Profoto’s Website, transcript also below.
Renaissance portraiture and the use of chiaroscuro by the masters has been of immense inspiration to my photographic style. For those unfamiliar, chiaroscuro is an oil painting technique, developed during the Renaissance.
Thank you to BBC Corespondent Chris Long interviewing me about my Northerners Photography Exhibition. Speaking in particular about my sittings with Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, full transcript below.
I had assumed that only sheer luck or destiny would place Sir Patrick Stewart in front of my lens. Somewhat surprisingly though, after 24 years of dreaming about capturing his portrait, it was the sight of a vulgar, pink Hummer that inspired our meeting. The sitting would change my stars from a provincial photographer to an international portraitist working in London & Los Angeles.
