One of the best things about photography is that it gives you the opportunity to explore lots of different worlds.
One of the best things about photography is that it gives you the opportunity to explore lots of different worlds. Working with art directors on corporate shoots, attending glittering proms or working with businesses to improve their imagery, the professional photographer works in a huge variety of settings - which is why we love it so much!
We recently took a break from photographing live events and special occasions for a foray into the world of fine art. Commissioned to take a portrait of an artist for an upcoming exhibition, we put our creative caps on and got stuck in.
Held at The Library Art Gallery in St Martin’s Lane, London, the exhibition we were working on was Fifteen Endings, a collaborative project by artist Nicolas Ruston. The project was based on 15 painting of ‘The End’ made by the artist. These paintings had inspired fifteen short fiction pieces by fifteen separate writers. Commissioned and curated by Ashley Stokes, the resulting book was titled The End: Fifteen Endings To Fifteen Paintings.
To help promote the exhibition, and give visitors to the gallery a bit more of an insight into who the artist is, we were asked to take a portrait of Nicholas Ruston. The photograph that we made was featured on the front cover of the gallery programme for the event (picture left), giving viewers a face to put with the artist’s name. A high profile event for the gallery and all of the artists and writers involved, the exhibition was a fantastic opportunity to bring fine art, literature and photography together to create something truly special.
If you have a project or event that you think could be enhanced with photography, we can help. Get in touch to talk to a member of our team.
