James is a fashion and editorial photographer and his upcoming high-profile project was in serious need of a range of portrait images. When we sat to discuss the shoot, James was very clear that he wanted the images to feel natural and real. His photography is contemporary and raw and yet James was adamant that his portraits captured my own interpretation of him as an artist.
I wanted to capture his free-spirit and his complete lack of ego.
We headed to a local nature reserve, well known for its oldest trees in the UK and wild backdrop, to capture the shots. The result is everything I hoped for and I can’t wait to see them in James’ upcoming project.
