Sometimes in fashion photography, it's not the most couture of clothes in the most lavish of sets or locations that enables an image to have high impact. Sometimes, just stripping back to a bold colour palette, hard lighting and a great pose form a model who knows her stuff, are the most effective elements. Barely any retouching on this image. The colour and energy speak for themselves.
Author: I am a portrait and still life photographer and studio manager based in London. I shoot across a variety of publications, often with little brief, budget or turnaround time. That doesn't stop art directors and picture desks from being demanding however so I have become accustomed to being creatively fast-paced! I love to shoot on my own terms too, where I get the chance to explore my own ideas in greater depth. I aim to create arresting photographs often with a bold colour palette and a lighting style that is graphic and dynamic.
