This is open to anyone, do you want photos for your model portfolio, some head shots, something for a magazine or something just for yourself? Do you want some photos taking for your business? Do you want some photos of your pet or child? Or even an engagement? I am going to experiment with shooting anything you like for free (within a reasonable distance!) and you can simply pay for the photos once you've seen them.
I am happy to shoot anything, it's all up to you. Anything outdoors, in your own home or spaces you have access to... all good. Let's see what we can do for free.
Locations and dates:
- Oxford: 21st-23rd April
- London: 24th-25th April
- Oxford: 26th-30th April
- Yorkshire: 1st May onward
Drop me a message if you have an idea!..
Having been visiting her down in Oxford for the week, the light coming in through the window was just too good to miss, so I grabbed the ever-trusty 50mm 1.8 lens and spent an hour or so getting yet more photos!
You can find more about Xenia over at her website: www.xenia_model.co.uk
If you'd like to book a shoot yourself, just click on the 'About' section at the top and I'd be happy to discuss it with you.
When Ksenia came to visit last month, it was hard not to make the most of an empty house during the day... and this is what we came up with in a rather rushed shoot with a small amount of natural light.
You can follow Ksenia on her new Instagram account here.
York's very own soapbox challenge...
I was only there for a short amount of time, but it looked pretty good considering it's only in its second year!
I seem to have a talent at finding new faces to photograph, perhaps I should be a scout rather than photographer, and I was at it again last December. I've had to wait a while before sharing this shoot as it was hopefully going to be published, and eventually it was, you can find the set here: nifmagazine.com/living-room-mat-robinson/. It's a little more risque than my average shoot, so probably best not to be looking at it at work.
The shoot itself was an interesting one. A matter of turning up and making the most of a general sitting room, using cushions as bedding, some net curtains as a diffuse backlight and minimal artificial lighting. It's nice to challenge yourself sometimes.
Charley was great though, very comfortable in front of the camera and found posing very natural... so I have plenty of photos to be working with!
2016 has not had quite as many photos of people as previous years but still a few to be shared... plus I had two weddings to deal with... one of my best friend's followed by my sister's (no pressure!)... so I'll pick out a few of my favourite photos from those too.
If you'd like to see a summary of my landscape work from 2016, just click here.
Of course, if you have a wedding or event coming up in 2017 or would like to work with me on something else - do get in touch and I'd be happy to organise whatever it is you're after!
Happy New Year!
Turning up a room in the maths department on campus with no idea what to expect, carrying just what I could fit in my backpack, I took some photos of Hannah. It was a fun afternoon, if a little challenging with the limitations!
