It has been a great 4 months since moving into my own wee studio and once everything was setup and ready to go I started picking up a good stream of commercial portraiture work
that’s a brilliant end to the year.
I’m very grateful to be a photographer in all forms from hyper commercial to art based- because most weeks I get to meet great people and see new places! My good friend Ness from Inkfulness Tattoo has also moved into the building- how cool is that!? Now I’m obliged to get more ink…. of course.
I’ve slowed down the two larger projects I’m focused on ‘I want to’ and another project yet untitled. Even though I balance commercial and personal work really well, the truth is that I can’t really jump from one to the other, as it creates a different mind set, so I tend to invest in one direction for a while then the other.I’ve had some energy to focus back on my creatives and makers
series again which has been great. I really enjoy the whole experience.
Some artists that i’ve had the pleasure of photographing are, Simon Ogden who has an extensive art based practice spanning back to the 1990s and my tutor John Maillard from ARA.
Have a great end of 2022 everyone, and all the best for 2023! I can’t wait to get my head into projects over the holidays, and in the new year translating my work into zines and books.
Thank you for the support. – Paul.
