The quest to becoming a well rounded photographer (no wise cracks please) is an ongoing journey for me. I have pointed my cameras at many subjects. From fast moving athletes to the quiet stillness of a hotel room. I love the many variables this job brings to the table.
There are few rules in photography and the rules that there are can be bent, manipulated and broken in any way the image taker sees fit. Not so in the world of architectural photography. In this genre there are guidelines that if ignored will lead to an image that just looks wrong. Keeping these rules in the back of my mind, I still like to have fun with interior shots.
My style (as it is coming to be) is to remove all sense of static sterilisation to a shot. I like a scene to look lived in. To look welcoming. To look like you are there, or make you want to be. Light a fire, lay out some food, pour some wine. Leave a book open somewhere, even get some people involved. There are many ways to create a welcoming feel to your place and trying to come up with different tricks is fun.
Last December was a busy time for me and my cameras. I had weddings, sports teams, family portraits and loads of chalets needing new coverage for their websites and advertising. I met some really cool people in some absolutely stunning places and captured some cool shots.
Here's a few interior shots from that crazy month:
Here's to a continuation of this fun filled journey!
