Laurence Passera

Laurence Passera is one of the most exciting photographers i have come across in ages. He uses loads of colour using gels and keeps his models creating lots of movement.

By using colour gels he creates a different mood to the image that the image would lack without the infusion of colour. By using gels it allows a lot more freedom in a studio and brings life to what is essentially a plain piece of paper. Passera has been featured on the front cover of Dazed and Confused in Vogue and shot a McQueen campaign. He is represented by one of the top agencies in the world Gainsbury & Whiting.

Jeurgen Teller

I was just doing some research when i came across a Teller campaign i hadn't seen before, for Vivienne Westwood, staring Pamela Anderson. Tellers style is that very similar to the 90's heroin chic period of fashion photography, but in a more provocative way a bit like Terry Richardson. 

I really like these campaigns as i think they are quite humorous within the Vivienne Westwood advertising style but maintaining Teller personal style.

studio work

Duing a project at uni, we had to shoot high key and low key lighting set ups in the studio on Hassleblad. 

This is one of my negatives that i scanned in from my low key shoot. I set up the studio to rim light my subject from behind to give her a slight glow around the edges and define the edges of her hoody from the background. I then used a beauty dish to light the front of her. I really like the way the lighting came out.
