I’ve feel slightly embarrassed that I completely forgot to share this piece of press at the time it was published! I’m talking at a super exciting new photography festival called SNAP next month, and Photo Professional magazine ran a brilliant article on it a few months back. It was a nice surprise to see my image used full spread at the beginning of the piece (and to be referred to as ‘big name in the field! Ha.). I’m so excited to be a part of this new endeavour, and I’m sure SNAP will be a roaring success and that there will be many more to come in the future!
I’ve been on a bit of an office de-cluttering kick (you can see my inspiration board de-cluttering over at Her Lovely Heart), and one of the things I did was to find all the hard copies of magazines with my work in, which were taking up shelf space in the office. It seemed crazy to waste so many shelves to back copies of old magazines I don’t read, so I decided to just save tear sheets of each in a folder (which turned into two). It was quite overwhelming to go through all the old issues, reminiscing over brilliant days and lovely couples. I could’t quite dump them all into recycling before taking a little snap to keep. Of course, after I’d restored the living room floor back to normalcy, I found another shelf-load of issues, but it’s ok, I think this photo will still be enough of a memory.
As an experience it was both proud and humbling, I guess you don’t really realise how the years stack up until you have such physical evidence. Thank you to all the magazines and lovely Editors who have featured my work over the years, and thank you to all my sassy clients who were the real stars of the show.
My assistant Astrid in action. I wouldn’t recommend her for these kind of jobs.
A while back Photo Professional magazine interviewed me about the Beloved interaction technique for portrait photographers, and the issue with the finished article is out now. I feel like it’s the best, most concise explanation on Beloved that I’ve managed to convey through a magazine article yet, so I’m personally very pleased!
There is a lovely write up about me, Jesh and Beloved in the August issue of Photo Professional magazine, which is out now. They’ve also laid my pictures out really nicely (even if Jesh’s bit has a picture taken by me as well, sorry Jesh!). I’m very excited that Beloved is getting good, level-headed exposure such as this, and I firmly believe that the future is bright for more fulfilling type of photography.
