Now I look back on these photographs, I’m reminded of my final major project I created for my degree. My project was called “The Valar” in which I portrayed a group of characters from J.R.R Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, where I used modern styling and dramatic landscapes to make it all come together. This project was basically a mixture of all things I love, shooting on location and portraying a story within my images. A lot of my work is heavily influenced by literature, and I enjoy telling a story with my photography.
It was great to just put together a test shoot the week before and to keep shooting. Although I like to have things organised, I also love planning a photo shoot the week before and receiving messages/emails like “Hey, fancy doing a shoot next week?” Heck yes I do! I like to keep myself busy and keep practicing, even if I have no project lined up, I like to plan shoots and experiment when I can.
So I hope you like these photos, we had a lot of fun on this blustery and sunny day.
