Da Bass in the Hands of da Devil (cheeky!) by 

This is intended as a sequel to “Getting Fresh with the Band”. I was going for an image to be in extreme contrast to the other image… hi-key vs low-key, white bass vs wood bass, short hair vs long hair… I have endeavored to also mirror the hand positions. I intend for one of this latest series to form a dyptich with the original.

The finals of the whole shoot are available on my facebook page.

Shot with Nikon D700, 50mm 1.4g lense and 2 flash heads.

My interest in photography began back in high-school when I used my mother’s Olympus OM-1 to shoot sports events. I learnt to understand film, light meters and other technical issues. I bought my first SLR, a Nikon F70, when I finished uni and became more focussed on shooting portraiture, landscape and photojournalism. Since then I have not looked back opening my own business in 2009 specialising in portrait photography.
