So I decided to go off and do a course in advanced photography, never having done much in the way of formal training in this career other than just going out and doing it. Early days in the course but it’s looking promising. I think the challenge of having to do assignments is, erm, interesting and what you’re looking at above is the fruit of my first assignment – to go out and shoot a portrait-style image which conforms to certain criteria. This may be a little too wide to conform to portraiture, but I like it on a few levels. First, it looks like Ben is enjoying himself, second, I like the proportions of the tiny people/lighthouse/giant child landing from the sky and third I like the perspective.

I’ll update here how the assignment was received.

Waterboy

A portrait of one of my boys in water, inspired by stainless steel water bottles Tom Hoops and some of his more edgy work. Taken in a pool somewhere in Majorca, my kids would spend all day swimming if they were allowed, actually spending more time under water than above.
