I’m a photography addict. I’d like to think if I had the funds for a proper £500 camera this might might read, “I’m a photographer”, but for the moment, that’s just not the case. So in the meantime, I’ve spent a lot of time oogling over fashion and artistic photography at every opportunity. I mean a lot. Here’s one of my recent finds that has me swooning with the force of a burning creative envy.
To use the words “up-and-coming” to describe Theo Williams would be fairly inadequate. The sixteen year old has been featured on Vogue Italia’s ‘PhotoVogue’, worked in collaboration with SNY, INK and Exquisite Magazine, as well as being featured on Professional Photographer Magazine and worked the Winchester Fashion Week in 2012. These are pretty outrageous credentials for any up-starting photographer – but his work is well up to scratch. Williams has captured in wistful lighting, rich tones and stunning black and white shots a real sense of scene; the pictures are brimming with electric atmosphere and a sense of dynamic moment – a wonderful artistic finish. One can only dream of being this talented at sixteen.
Here’s some shots to turn you green with jealousy…
And a brilliant shot by Williams’ stylist for the Winchester Fashion week gives you a real taste of what’s going on behind the scenes – Williams working under pressure of a crowd to produce brilliant shots. For more behind-the-scenes treats see Winchester Fashion Week’s stylist Vikki Weston’s insider write up of the shoot, with sneaky shots and all, on her blog VikkiLondon.com.
And the result…
Any photographers you’re obsessed with? Stylists that make you sick with jealousy? As always, if so, hit me up with a comment. Nothing like an afternoon’s photostalking.
Until later, keep creative.
