The Secret life of daydreams

I have a strange feeling with regard to you. As if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly knotted to a similar string in you. And if you were to leave I'm afraid that cord of communion would snap. And I have a notion that I'd take to bleeding inwardly. As for you, you'd forget me.

Moody Male Portrait - CC & critique welcome

I'm a photo hobbyist who has been increasingly active that past year trying to build my skills and find my niche. At present, I just love to shoot everything, however, I'm drawn to people and portraits at the present. Maybe it's the cold winter weather ;)

In any case, this was my first portrait attempt (it's actually a "selfie" so to...

Despair

Hi everyone! New to the group here.

I shot this as part of a series I'm doing. This was a crazy fun shoot and the model was just awesome. There's no photoshop here, just a few adjustments and touch ups in Lr. Everything was shot light painting with a fibre optic brush on long exposures :)

We spent about 2 hours doing the makeup...

Dalit Woman

Shot this with an Apurture Mini 20 & Gold reflector on the Gh5.

I was in a remote part of India shooting a documentary about the Devadasi temple maidens. While I was out there I encountered this woman.

Her family had died a few years before the encounter, she is part of a caste that is considered poor or untouchable. They were...

The Secret life of daydreams

I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitments, awaited those who had the courage to go forth into it's expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst it's perils

JESS

I've been a massive fan of Annie Leibovitz and I often wish I could find time to shoot something that would be in her style or at least genre. I got that opportunity when I got ex-colleague Jess back for this evocative period Hollywood movie style portrait. I moved what felt like a mile out of my comfort zone by not only using two strobes in...

TIME

I'm fascinated how my brain works. One day I woke up and started collecting clocks... big clocks, small clocks, old clocks new clocks... I thought it was about time. As a portrait photographer it seemed natural to put the two together.
