Tag Archives: montage
The montage portraits I shoot are not just reserved for my trend spotting antics. I also shoot them of friends and family but most of the time it is reserved for the Street Style section of Brighton Source Magazine. Recently I was commission to shoot a set of family portraits using the technique, it’s kind of switch as usually it’s me approaching other people on the street to get their portrait not the other way around.
Mum, Dad, Daughter and Cousins all got in on the montage portrait action.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any montage portraits to my site although I have been trickling them onto my Fragmented Portraits Tumblr. I’ve been posting two a week (new & some from the archive). I will have to up my posting rate as I have 295 montage portraits that are not on my tumblr yet!
I’ve been shooting montage portraits regularly for over three and half years. Over that time I have shot just under 400 portraits, definitely enough for a book which I plan to start working on soon.
All the montage portraits are shot on a Lomo LCA film camera and then are put together from five individual photographs. I recently shot a few of these up in London while being filmed for documentary on film photography by Anton. I will post the London pictures once the film is released.
Whenever I post montage portraits, I always start by saying I have been a little slack in posting them. This time round that is really true. I have six months’ worth to post so it’s a real best of the best. I shoot portraits of hip people around Brighton for Brighton Source Magazine’s street style section and then every so often I post them here. If you want to read about the featured peoples’ outfits you can read the words that go along with the pictures in the fashion section on the Source’s website.
I also have not posted any of the images to my Fragmented Portraits Tumblr for four months, but that’s about to change as I have lined up a post every three days till the end of January and this time round I will keep it going! If you’re into Tumblr, you can follow along here.
As part of the Brighton Photo Fringe Festival MiniClick is bringing a slice of Phoot Camp to Brighton in the form of an exhibition and talk. Phoot Camp is an invite-only photography retreat where photographers get together for a few days and create new work. It’s been held in San Francisco, LA, Marfa (Texas) and upstate New York. I have been lucky enough to attend three of the four camps. I have met some amazingly creative people at Phoot so I am really proud to bring a little slice of the camp to Brighton for the Photo Fringe.
