How did the idea for the series come about?

 

I’ve done a number of shoots with Ela Campbell (make-up artist) and we were on the hunt for more creatives to team up with. We came across El’s artworks and thought she would be an interesting person to meet and work with.

 

Can we photograph the female body differently in a more powerful way?

 

Yes we can definitely photograph the female body in a more powerful way. Breaking away from the digital, retouched images and showcasing raw beauty. By working with models that are artists and creatives in their own right, you’re not only showcasing the physicality, but mentality that goes into the person as a whole.

 

What inspires you?

 

The moments in between.

 

How would you define beauty?

 

It’s like art, you cannot really explain what kind of art you like but you know it when you see it.

 

Film or digital?

 

I prefer to shoot on film, I feel as though it’s more of a window into that singular moment and it evokes more of a feeling in the viewer than a digital photo does. The process of having the film developed and finding out after the shoot which photographs turned out the way intended, always provides a bit of mystery and surprise.

 

What makes you happy?

 

Time with family & friends.

 

What’s next for you?

 

Short Films.
