Gregory Porter and March update
March was a busy month for me with a nice variety of portrait and architectural shoots on location. For instance I’ve been working for Libération, The Independent on Sunday magazine, Modus Magazine and was away last week in Budapest for an advertising shoot for Dublin-based agency Ground 4D. This is just a short post, but I will put up images and more details when they are out in the public domain.
The portrait above is of the American Jazz singer Gregory Porter who I photographed recently. Gregory is a rising star in the world of Jazz and has an incredible voice. I photographed him during a break in his sound check for the show he had on that night, and although he was busy, he was incredibly nice and easy to work with. If you’re interested, I recommend you check out this track from his new album. The shoot was for Libération and you can see the tearsheet here.
Also, I came across this interesting Channel 4 program The Shooting Gallery (via the Troika editions newsletter) with a great multimedia piece in the middle by photographer Ian Teh on his series Dark Cloud. It’s definitely worth checking out. Fast forward to around 18 minutes, to see his work specifically.
