Studio portraiture

As well as still life photographs I have also taken a few portraits in the studio, although much less than still lives. Studio portraiture is not my favourite genre of photography (I'm not very good at directing people) but I've had to have a go at it for my college and uni project.


This was actually the first photograph I ever took on a 5x4 camera as part of a workshop in college. It's a paper negative inspired by the work of Martin Schoeller.


This is a photograph I produced in response to a brief we were set to pick an images from a selection we were given and copy it as closely as we could. I chose the Irving Penn portrait of Marlene Detrich. 


This final one I took at uni and it's inspired by another Irving Penn portrait, this time though, one he took of Audrey Hepburn.
