|How do you choose your subjects?
From my imagination and ideas.
I research my subject locations online and by just driving around.
I want my subjects to be interesting or different in some way. The subject can be a truly mundane building 23.5 hours a day, but when the light hits it in just the right spot, it can become very interesting, at least to me. I also carry a camera with me everywhere that I go, my friends have become used to being the subjects of many of my photos. If you wait long enough and are ready when it happens, something will come your way.
I trawl the internet until I've found the models that are just right
They choose me. They simply jump out at me, or at least in my vision, and I can't resist taking a shot or two or three... or more.
Some of my subjects are people that have approached me and asked me to take shots for them others are ladies and gentlmen that I have had an idea for a shoot.
unusual shapes and angles
It varies - it could be something that's illuminated in a certain way or has a certain shape. I also look for things that, when photographed, take on a different meaning when viewed out of context.
My clients choose them for me.
In street it's more of a gut feeling. Chunky soup has been an exploration of the city and I take photos on the fly, often without stopping, so it's a case of what catches my eye. Everything and everybody's interesting, it's just a case of finding the right angle or time to show the story.
For the portraits that's mostly been structured around the London skating scene so most of the subjects are friends I've cajoled into helping me.
its all based on looks, Who words best for the themes I have in mind and who has the face and/or body for whatever type of photo shoot I am working on.
If it's a specific job, I just go with what I'm given, but with Uni work I try to do something that I know will challenge me and develop my skills.
Most people I just choose randomly. Usually they sit next to me on a train. Sometimes I intentionally sit next to the most interesting person I see.
For personal work is purely exploration. For commercial work we are given briefs to follow. We also receive emails from people looking for collaboration and if the timing is right we do it.
