Here are some images from one occasion in November when Gerard and I ventured into the woods to explore the mysterious magic of autumn.
For me autumn has a power like that of spring – a painful magic that awakens memories of previous cycles in a way that only reality (as opposed to imagination) can. Unlike summer and winter which invite me to forget, autumn and spring invite me to remember. These images convey many different feelings, as I try to hold onto life before the plunge into winter…
By the way, these images are available to buy as prints, postcards and some other slightly silly things from Redbubble. Just follow the link in each image caption. Or check out the collection here. 🙂
Tim Pile has written a blog post about our art nude photography adventures in Sardinia last summer, featuring precarious poses on fascinating rock formations at dawn and dusk and the crumbling remains of an eerie landslidden abandoned village.
Tim was kind enough to let me select and edit some of the images myself, so the results of the project are a combination of images edited by me and images edited by Tim.
I’m continuing now with my photos of Rebecca Tun in Iceland in 2014. In my last post from that trip (click here), we had not yet crossed the great black nothingness of the Skeiðarársandur flood plain, but for these new photos we had, moving into an area with no large settlements but plenty of large glaciers.
The area where we went to photograph, trying to get away from a touristy crowd, was by the shore of a glacial lake. The large glacier was on the other side of the lake, but on our side some small icebergs had washed up on the shore.
Rebecca was accompanied on this part of the trip by a friend, so I said to her traveling companion standing next to me, in a voice loud enough for Rebecca to hear, “Do you think I should ask Rebecca if she wants to…
My trip to England in July of this year was primarily to attend a week long language class, but while I was there, I took advantage of the opportunity to photograph some English models, too.
One of those was Rebecca Tun, who I had photographed for a couple of days during my trip to Iceland in 2014. I’ve posted some photographs of her previously, and here are a few more of her at the canyon named Fjaðrárgljúfur.
I had been to this canyon on my trip to Iceland the year before, but I decided that it was worth exploring again with a camera. The weather in 2013 was not very cooperative when I was there (as was the case for pretty much the whole trip), but things were better the second time around.
While I did not get to photograph in the bottom of the canyon…
I’ve been away from posting for a couple of weeks (in part because I was away from home for a few days recently), so I’m coming back with a couple of photos of a couple of models in Iceland – Rebecca and Nadine.
These were made during my 2014 trip to Iceland, and I’ve posted some photos with Nadine there previously. However, on the occasion of these photos, I was working with Rebecca for the first time. She had been planning to visit Iceland from her home in England and very kindly arranged her schedule so that she could work with me for a couple of days.
The location is a well known waterfall located near one of the major towns on Iceland’s south coast. As Rebecca had only arrived to meet us late in the morning, we had to make our photos here in the…
