This photograph was taken in St Giles, a luxurious yet quirky period property on the south coast of the UK. The staircase of the property offered some interesting lighting, colours, and perspectives and I knew I wanted it as a feature for an environmental bridal portrait that would encapsulate the essence of the place.
In a nutshell, my personal photographic style revolves around the pursuit of capturing emotion through the dramatic use and juxtaposition of light and shadow, and the staircase at St Giles offered an abundance of raw moodiness to play with. It’s a relatively simple image, but one that encapsulates my style and I hope that by stepping behind the image with me, you will be inspired to play with light and shadows in a more cinematic way in your photography as well. So, without further ado, welcome to the dark side!
