I’m not one to dwell on TV adverts but when it comes to the campaigns for expensive perfumes, male and female, I’m left dumbfounded. What the hell are they about. The visual symbolism goes way above my head and I’m pretty sure the “creatives” involved have been snorting far too much of that white powder. What we need is some straight forward no nonsense imagery so here’s a few more of my outdoor snaps.
Something a bit more up to date than I’ve posted recently. Unfortunately I wasn’t in a particularly inspired shooting mood so tried out a few variations with the lighting that didn’t quite work but these are okay I suppose.
Checking the web site stats the other day I noticed a large number of hits coming from Russia. Now whether these are real visits or spambots doing what spambots do I know not. I do find it amusing though that such a minor presents like SNAPSHOTS of GIRLS gets such attention and I wonder what happens on the mega sites. Other than the constant stream of rubbish spam posted in the comments, which I trap and delete daily, I haven’t noticed anything untoward which I suppose I should be grateful for.
Somethings you have to get your head around when photographing young ladies and one of them is you are not going to get along with all of them. Women are from Venus and men are from Uranus. I find it strange that some models work all around the world with all sorts of photographers and yet are so naive and easily offended. I have a tendency to call tits tits and cunt cunt so when working with a new face I have to tell myself to go softly softly until I find out how the land lies. Here are 2 models who just about put up with my plain talking and were an absolute pleasure to have visit the Chateau de Vaughan. Definitely 2 of my favourites.
