Monumental Ink

Monumental Ink

Tattoo studio Monumental Ink focus on high end designs that stand out from the average. They wanted the images of their work to do the same. We shot a variety of models throughout the day as well as a group shot of the whole team showing off their own ink. This kind of subject works perfectly with the kind of strong shadowy look that I love to create. It requires tightly controlled light and exact positioning to work, turn a head too far the wrong way and you lose it. I’d had this setup in mind for most of the day so when the time came...

Sports photograph with a disabled athlete

This image was shot for Access magazine, a publication focused on disability issues.

Netball

Though this might look like a moment captured from a match this netball image took well over 12 shots to get right. Eventually though I managed to catch them all at just the right time. Unfortunately, the ball was just out of shot so I added some more sky from another image and retouched the ball back in from another. Two Profoto strobes running off a battery pack provided the light and although the flood light was actually off at the time I wanted it to be on to give the lighting a more believable source so I gave it a glow in post...
