Portraiture is my greatest love and working at a beautiful location with a great subject is a perfect combination for a great work day! I was lucky enough to be commissioned to shoot a range of imagery for the very talented Jules Knight for his forthcoming debut solo album: Change of Heart.
The day started with some studio style shots at Jules’ home and then quickly on to the stunning venue of Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire… a photographer’s dream! With columns, wood panelling, sweeping staircase and huge windows the choice of where to shoot was vast.
I should also mention that it was February, it was England and it was raining. So the choice was narrowed a little and we remained around The Mansion building. I called upon a range of light sources: natural, studio flash and off-camera flash, which provided a range of very different image styles. Jules has a look that can be very diverse, so we managed to get light, intense, and brooding…to name but a few. Here’s just a few images from the day:
Jules is funding his new album via Pledge Music with a range of opportunities for fans, including a photoshoot where I look forward to being part of the team. More information is on the Jules Knight PledgeMusic page here.
