Enough rambling about my university accommodation now. The BIG NEWS that I have been wanting to share with you all day is:
I have now decided to start collaborating with one of my fellow class mates; Alex Compton. I can't wait to get stuck into this project. I first met Alex back in September 2012 when we both started on the BA (Hons) Documentary Photography degree at the University of Wales, Newport. She returned to Newport after studying on a Foundation Degree course where she produced a large diversity of photographic work ranging from recreating Sally Mann's work (one of her favourite photographers) to fashion shoots. If I could describe Alex in three words it would be:
Short. Creative. Artistic.
Alex has a brilliant eye for detail, especially when it comes to drawing, one of her many creative talents. I believe that in her drawings the viewer can really understand how much time and effort has gone into producing such beautiful pieces. The image below is a photograph of a project that took her over a year to complete, it's absolutely magnificent.
Alex has assisted me on many studio shoots before, and it is safe to say that without her, my work would not have been as outstanding and strong as it was. She has a great understanding of studio lighting, both on location and in a controlled environment. So we have now decided to combine our knowledge and abilities together and start collaborating on studio shoots that will be based in Caerleon, Newport, and hopefully our business will be able to branch out in the future. Our business is offering studio shoots at very reasonable prices.
Please have a look at Alex's website to view her collection of photographic work: http://alexcompton.4ormat.com/ it is still work in progress at the moment, but she is currently working towards finishing her website alongside our academic work.
To book a shoot please contact either myself or Alex via Twitter or email:

Thank you very much.
