Jeremy Cowart is one of the most respected names in commercial and entertainment photography. Earlier this year he had the opportunity to travel to Iceland for the first time to shoot the talented singer Imogen Heap in a new portrait series. The photos that they captured in the remote and ethereal landscape of Iceland are nothing short of stunning.
Instead of planning ahead with makeup, wardrobe and lighting like you would expect in a celebrity shoot, Jeremy and Imogen opted to just wing the session with a very minimal gear set-up including some Profoto B1 lights and Profoto light modifiers. During the entire session Imogen chose to wear her own light clothing despite the frigid Icelandic weather.
I really love seeing Jeremy’s work, but even more when it’s a spontaneous and fun shoot like this with little planning and little expectations. Seeing shoots like these remind me that perhaps we should all step back and shoot for the love of photography instead of having to meticulously plan ahead all of the time. The images will be used for Imogen's upcoming album "Sparks".
