Results from another assisting opportunity done the previous summer - this time a mix of food and still life for Systembolaget, the government owned chain of liquor stores in Sweden.
Amazing and intricate set up in the studio to achieve a “natural” window light.

Product photo shoot for IKEA which I assisted on this previous summer.
(Lifting a styled metal cabinet up onto a plinth ain’t easy - even when you’re two.)

"Professional" online portfolio… Next thing will be to actually get a proper domain name.
Spent the previous Wednesday doing work experience at Big Sky as a studio assistant.
It was just for one day (sort of what you can squeeze in living in Winchester and commuting to London..), but still a proper work day from 8am - 6pm. It was interesting and educational to see the differences between shoots/clients and studio/photo assisting.
Due to their clients, no behind the scenes-photos were allowed so here’s the view of north London.
My internship at Bauer ended roughly two weeks ago (went on holiday the day after my last day of work), and overall I can describe the 3-month experience with the clichés I learnt loads! and I met tons of awesome people - which is all true. Even though it wasn’t originally part of the plan, I got to meet, observe and assist quite a few of their photographers. I had luck in having a boss that actually took an interest in my education and future plans, therefore arranging my internship around what I wanted to learn, and making sure I got that experience.
Hopefully I’ll meet up with the agency again whenever they’re in London for a portfolio booking or something similar.
The only excitement I’m left with now is the long wait for the images that I assisted on to go public (and uni work)..
Test roll of film to see if a new/old Rolleicord IV works. Negatives shot against a backlit screen (due to lack of scanner and for kicks), surprised they don’t look half as crappy as I thought they would.
