Little details make or break a photo for me

Miniscule details result in a photo being interesting or uninteresting. Which is why photographing something within a millisecond is so important.

For me, with this particular photograph, it's the girls hand on her shoulder, head laid back and eyes looking over in my direction that made this photo for me. That whole moment was lost one second later and this is what I find interesting.

People have asked me why I post what I post - so there is a short explanation.

Photographed on Ilford Delta 3200 pushed to 6400. It resulted in higher grain and contrast, and allowed me to shoot with a faster shutter.

The Passenger

What my seat usually looks like when I am the passenger... always ready to photograph people in their cars.

For a while last year I was adjusting my business to marry my personal work (street photography, etc) with my wedding work. They seemed too different and it was really important to me that they merged. I needed to do what I wanted and care less of what others expected because I was sacrificing my own ideas which is soul sucking.

In line with this, came redesigning the packaging I give to couples.

I love delivering something tangible. When we work with families/couples it's really important to me that it isn't just us showing up, taking some photos, and drop-boxing the images to you. Along with hanging out and having a fun shoot, I wanted the whole process to be something eagerly anticipated.

When I buy something online - I eagerly wait for it to arrive in my mailbox. I want the whole experience. Seeing it in my mailbox, sitting on my living room floor and ripping open the envelope, seeing the design of the packaging inside. There is a beauty in tangible. Even more so when it's your keepsake from a wedding, an anniversary shoot, or a family shoot.

We spent months designing. We greatly took into consideration what we like and what we felt best represented the people we work with - not what wedding packaging is supposed to be.

A few things that inspired the box was Shadowplay - Joy Division, Interpol, the manual that came with my film enlarger from the '60s, fibonacci numbers, and architecture.

People have asked us what we do during the day. Well, I don't really know.
