We are firmly moving into the abysmal grey that is a British autumn. I like to be reminded of the fantastic summer I just had visiting my wife’s family in Canada. This trip, I managed to squeeze in some time to make some images in the style that always appealed to me when starting out in photography. A few topographic landscapes that signal the aesthetic of a country I steadily love more and more with each visit.
Following on from the gallery edit I created for my website, I have started to share many of the images that I created in Japan nearly 10 years ago. Instagram wasn’t even a thing when I took these trips, sharing the images only to my blog and maybe a few to other sites (the defunct Flickr, perhaps?!). Instead of letting the images languish on a hard drive, I have decide to spend some time sharing them again through my Instagram profile: @philhillphoto with the hashtag #philphotographs
Commission: Portrait of Jen dressed as Humpty Dumpty
I was asked to shoot a series of promotional images for Children’s Theater company ‘Fully Booked Theater‘ for their new show titled ‘Once Upon a Wall, a new take on the familiar nursery rhyme. You can view more of those images via the Fully Booked instagram
I decided to shoot a more formal portrait between the silliness. I love the surreal juxtaposition of the serious pose whilst dressed head to toe as an egg!
