2nd Portrait

Posted: December 10, 2013 in Uncategorized

Approached by the manager of the support act, his Dad, after he had spoken with Toby I was asked if I would shoot a quick set of portrait images for his act. An extremely polite young man from Scarborough who has just landed a two year recording/songwriting deal but very nervous.

Had a chat with him for a few minutes, explaining what happens, got him to relax and ran off some images for him which I reviewed with both himself and his manager as we went. No renumeration on this occasion but my details were asked for regarding future studio and promotion images. I would like to get some foothold into this industry as some of the images I have seen vary in such vast chasms of quality. From the well exposed to the downright awfully exposed, wrong shutter speed which all too many bands accept as good enough. There’s no great money here but satisfaction of delivering quality images and listening to live music more than makes up for it.

So here is Alastair leaning against the wall. Took a few with his guitar but I liked this one the most. In all fairness the wall didn’t suit him or project his style of music. A more civilised setting would have been more appropriate.

No editing –  85mm, f/5.6, 1/125th and ISO 100.
