This weeks photo Challenge is: Victory
I recently shot Sarah Haden, a 14 year old teen from Taranaki, who won the title of Miss Teen Taranaki 2015 earlier in the year. She wanted a fresh shoot wearing her winners tiara, before she had to return it at the of the year. Having already had some cutesy shots taken earlier in the year, she was looking for something a bit different, and a bit edgier than before. Hopefully we managed to do this.
Both shots, Canon 5D MK3, 70-200 f2.8, speedlight mounted in a softbox to camera left just out of shot, triggered manually.
This weeks photo challenge is (Extra)ordinary
Followers of my work will probably have noticed I have a penchant for old, abandoned and derelict things. On a mooch around a massive car breakers yard i came across these old headlamps in a box, and couldn’t resist getting this shot.

Spurred on by a recent Halloween themed photo competition I decided to revisit a shot taken at the beginning of the year in an old abandoned military complex. The room was underground with the only natural light falling from the hole in the roof. The room was light painted with LED torches and then the white balance was adjusted in post production to produce the eerie blue hues.
The red light falling from the hole in the roof was cloned across from another shot which had been light painted with red LED torches, this was masked several times onto the original shot and the individual layers blend modes and opacity values were changed until I was happy with the results.
Below is the final image and the original before post production.
Original shot with:
Canon 5D MK3, 35mm f/9 30 seconds at ISO 500
This weeks Photo Challenge is Grids.
Here are 3 completely different shots of windows, creating the effect of a grid.
Below are a few of the books that have been recently published with my images on the front cover. All images have been licensed from my representing agency Arcangel Images. It’s always nice to see an image in print, and to see how the designer decided to use it, although you have no control over what they do with the image.
Below is a post I made a while ago about stock photography:
Shots taken for conceptual use as book covers, dark and creepy seems to sell well with book cover designers. All images have been accepted by Arcangel, the agency which represents some of my work.
Many of my images can be purchased as fine are at Fine Art America
