Masks & Spiral Staircases

Masks & Spiral Staircases

Hey again guys, back to some portraiture as you can probably see! This is a shoot of my dear friend Charlotte. Charlotte is a fellow artist and studies Graphic Design. This shoot wasn't particularly well planned but I think we got some good shots. She is definitely a bit of a natural cough cough *poser* ;). I ended up trying to go for a grungy kind of theme with this set of photographs, this is why most of the images are in black and white; as I feel it adds to the atmosphere. I have included the colour versions so you can see the difference yourselves.  

I guess the message for this post is to always experiment and just have fun with your friends you never know what results you may get. If you like what you shoot or find a good idea, you can always plan and revisit! 

Just on a side note, the university year is about to begin. For the following year I shall be President of the Photography Society at the University of Hull. Please show support for the group on the following links:

Out and about


Or uncropped?

The deep.

Pedestrian walkway. 

Pedestrian walkway B&W.

Follow the yellow brick road, except, it's not yellow.

Out and about - Kingston upon Hull.

Hello ladies and gents! I thought I would post something a bit different to my usual portrait work. Here are a few photographs from around the city of Hull. As you can see, I've not had as much practise at landscapes, as I have with portraits, but I hope you still enjoy the images. In these photographs I have tried to generate a sense of depth. In the photographs of the pedestrian walkway I have tried to use the lines of the railings to draw the eye into the background. I feel this is a key element when trying to shoot landscapes, you need something to draw you in and add depth to the image. This can be done through 'lines' bringing you into the image like I have done here, or some kind of foreground interest. You should always include one or the other, or you may end up with a flat looking image!

I have recently set up a Facebook page for my photography, if you guys could get on it and boost those likes it would be fantastic!

Thanks for reading guys,

The crow that can’t fly.

Hey guys, sorry it has been a while, I’ve been really busy lately. However my photography was featured on Republic’s website and blog this week, check it out on the featured page. In regards to this post's photographs, I was trying to go down the fashion/commercial route for Annie’s fashion blog. The theme I was going for with these images was kind of a dark, ghoulish, tribal style (If you get what I mean!).

I thought I'd just include a couple of images from the day as well. You can probably see my Nikon D80 (old faithful) covered in a Sainsbury's bag. This was to help protect it from the indecisive weather, it was raining on and off! Perhaps this was not the best and most visually stimulating way to protect my camera, but, it was most certainly the cheapest!

Finally, just a little about the gold telephone boxes! Of course you have all heard about the Olympics, and perhaps even that they are painting a post box in every gold medallists home town gold. Well, Hull is a very unique city with its own independent communications network (KC), this is why we also have a gold telephone box in Hull! (Aren't we the lucky ones). 

Until next time guys! AdiĆ³s!
