Amy Bennett

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a while now, being slightly obsessed with Architecture and Architectural Models and such. Amy Bennett builds little cardboard models of street-scenes and then does a painting of them, and the result is these beautiful images that look like dioramas. Lovely serene stuff.

Afternoon all. What a beautiful afternoon it is to. All the more beautiful for looking at some of this illustration slash photography work courtesy of the boys Ian and Lozz. Photographer Ian Harding and illustrator Lawrence Mann, combining to alarmingly good effect.

Once again, to recap…. nice work by Ian and Lozz

Aha! The clickclicksocial

Seems like a while back now. Also seems a lot like we should have blog’d about this a while ago, beens as one of our esteemed number curated, hosted and shot the whole thing. But, such is the rampant and regular delays on this blog, we’re only just getting around to it. Or rather, I’m only just getting round to it. Now.

Okay, to celebrate the first massive months of the launch of the Architectural Photography branch of clickclick towers, clickclickjim, we decided to have a party at the flat and invite all my cohorts and collaborators (and clients) along to have a few drinks, listen to some music and get some proper photos done did as I set up some lights in one corner of the room and snapped away. Great fun was had by all, my arm was a couple of times bigger after lugging that flash head and ringflash about but it was more than worth it.

Crappy Taxidermy

Saturday nights in have been a bit of rarity and now I remember why. Tele is awful on Saturday nights. So, I just bumped into the most bizarre thing I’ve seen for some time.

Crappy Taxidermy will distract the hell out of you.

Grégoire Alexandre

Ok, let’s talk about photographers. Specifically, let’s talk about really good photographers that are tearing it up right now (in the best possible way) by doing something really unique and creative with what they have in front of them. The bleedin’ French seem to be right on top of things right now on the creativity front. Even more specifically, let’s talk about a young gent called Grégoire Alexandre

Or…. let’s not talk about him too much, let’s just look at his picture and bask in their majesty for a while. (Sorry for the small-ness of the images, check out his website for bigger things…). His site is a bit information-light, but I can confirm he is both French and about 27yrs old. And probably a nice guy.

It’s so easy to set up all your lights and get a stunning girl in front of the camera and snap away. It takes imagination and spark to create props and scenery like Grégoire does. And that. Is why he is so great at what he does. Because he appears to have it in bundles.

I give to you….. Grégoire Alexandre

John Carl

Righto, more photography. I’ve got an event coming up for my studio entitled “The First Annual ClickClick Social” (feel free to pop along) where I’m going to have to do proper portraits of all of my guests, all professional and that.

It should be a good laugh and a good bit of practice for me with a ringflash and a couple of strobes, possibly a softbox to. Over the last month or so, I’ve been checking out people who bring their a-game out in portraiture and John Carl‘s stuff hit the spot. Nice job.

The Quiet Revolution

Owls and Tigers are pretty decent creatures. In fact, the only way I can think of improving them could be by BEJEWELING THEM…

… like what Claire Scully does under the moniker, The Quiet Revolution. Check out the rest of her portfolio as well. Neat.
