I believe that your portraits shouldn’t just represent the beauty but also the soul, feelings and state of mind. They need to express what you love and appreciate in life. That’s not easy to capture but possible with a little bit of effort. The real work on your portraits starts when we talk about how do you see yourself to be photographed and how you feel about that. Therefore, it must be a dialogue between us. This website might be just the place to begin. Actually, since you are reading this text and looking at the images, it has already started.
I have been taking photographs since 1993, and have always been fascinated by the urban environment and the unique atmosphere of cities. My lens is attracted to the evidence people leave behind in city spaces and how these remnants relate to people sharing those spaces. This was an approach I developed during my studies in ethnology and the anthropology of culture. From this I learned that everything that can be discovered in the most exotic places in the world is also waiting to be found in the everyday cityscape around us.
For a number of years I was involved in other branches of the arts and culture, working in the media and advertising as a radio journalist, copy writer, media buyer and consultant. Outside work I also worked on a number of projects with art galleries and other institutions. I have developed a keen interest in information technologies and digital photography. However, I have never been persuaded to give up experimenting with film, which I still regard as possessing a magical quality. Although I am comfortable with using digital cameras, for preference I still use a 35mm SLR and 120mm twin-lens reflex camera.
I publish my artwork on http://www.halo-photo.com
and have established http://www.photo-graphers.co.uk in order to develop my commercial wedding and portrait photography profile.
