thanks. I’ve got travel plans up until August, but I can put Milan on my list for autumn 2015. Feel free to send me an email with more details if you’re interested in arranging a shoot. firstname.lastname@example.org
The entries are in, and I’m on the jury! The NUDE 2015 PhotoShoot Awards competition is underway. I’ve been looking forward to this day for weeks. Many of the images are excellent. I am one happy bunny. Making decisions about pictures gives my brain a high that beats tea, coffee and even rapid-fire solitary word games.

The strength of the subject’s presence and their conviction in manner or expression can make the difference between a weak, failed composition and a dynamic, successful one. (And I don’t just mean the technicalities of gaze and gesture, which in my mind already come under the remit of ‘composition’.) Sounds obvious now when I write it, but I only just conceptualised it to myself.
Michail Jarojov’s jewellery and accessory designs, a.k.a. Mjaro Boutique, are intricate, symbolic, sometimes geometrical and sometimes sensual, and in his own words, philosophical. I discovered his work online and we arranged to shoot these pieces in London with photographer Eric Schneider. Make-up artist Asta Gost designed the heavy, forlorn gothic countenance to go with the look.
