Birmingham Artists Session #1

In preparation and as a side project for an exhibition I’m shooting for The Drum (September til November) I shot a few artists from my city, Birmingham… A few I have known, respected, and once upon a time jammed with, and a few newer to me who I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on.

Birmingham as ever is full of amazing talent that needs to be seen, experienced and nurtured. This city is home to many good things, many huge influences musically and artistically and long may that last.

For the strobists out there just two speedlights were used, some shots just one, and a softbox. The backgrounds were just painted walls, and one projector screen in one set.

A good session indeed and I’m hoping to run a few more soon to give local talent the “exposure” they deserve. Here are the previews:

Dubbo Wedding Photographer - Awesome project. Love your studio work, espeically with the coloured lighting and backdrops. The visual drama you’ve created is excellent.
