(2) your bio (only a few sentences including where you're from)
Currently a Birmingham (UK) based photographer, soon to be moving to Rhyl in North Wales. No budget, cheap gear, but BIG ideas. I like any interesting visuals, provocative narratives and exploring the human condition... and anything fun to shoot along the way. I intend on doing Underwater portraiture when we move.
(3) an artist statement
I find fashion and beauty boring to shoot on the most part, i need an aim and a narrative beyond something so throw away and fickle. However i can appreciate others work along those lines if it's done beautifully well and isn't the same old same old. Lighting is a tool, something to be used to effect and have fun with. While i side towards editorial and clean light on the most part having assisted fashion photographers and the like, I prefer raw, grungy narratives and polishing such things with perfect lighting ruins them by taking away the edge in my opinion. I will always be excited by saying something and an interesting concept before the perfect image.
