Portrait photography in and around Cornwall is something I enjoy doing, especially during the week when it breaks up my routine which consists of many tasks revolved around being sat at a computer Monday to Thursday. Its nice to be able to get out of the office for a few hours during the week, rather than having to wait all week until the inevitable wedding on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, or all three (thats another story).
Last week I had the pleasure of photographing one of my fellow peers back from my school days, a little younger than me, yet her talent for music is clearly there. Jessica is thinking of soon travelling to the USA to live in order to push her music ideas for her future, meanwhile trying to launch an online presence for herself, Jess contacted me to produce some portraits of her and her music. We spent a couple of hours at various locations around Cornwall including woodland, a rape field and a beach to create a dynamic set of pictures from which Jess can hopefully draw what she needs from them when she needs it, not fitting any one specific product or outcome but so she can pull social networking material, website material, posters or even CD/Album covers if she needs it.
I have to admit I had a great time, it was brilliant that all the time we could both share ideas and build on each others imagination, something you only really get with other artistically minded people, or very keen brides! I’m no closed door, in fact, one idea that came from Jess that I was not very keen on to start with turned out to be one of our favourite pics of the day.
Jess took about 60 pics away from the day after our meeting a week later when we both looked through the pics together, its also great when both myself and the client pick out ruffly the same favourite 20 frames, below are a sample of these pics.
You can see some of Jessica’s work on Youtube.
