I am always inspired by people who have an ability to capture a moment through film. I follow numerous accounts on Instagram and Facebook. I thought I would share some of my favourites and why I like their work. Photography has always been my way of capturing ideas as a way of documenting a thought for a project. However these people take it to another level. Dan has a real knack for being able to capture to excitement of an event as shown in the photos below, Millie has a great eye for colour and composition and Alex has a talent for capturing to vulnerability of her subject matter. I have followed her work for a long time and have real admiration for her portfolio.

Daniel John

Dan is a friend of my older sister from University. I first saw his work on Instagram and really loved his ability to capture emotion and movement on camera. Having the confidence to photograph events like this is good too because I can imagine you have to be constantly on your feet looking for a good shot without the image becoming too distorted. These photos work especially well in black and white and add to the atmosphere of the gig.

Millie Elliott

Millie is about to start on the Photography course this September at Falmouth University. Her photography is brilliant because of how she composes each shot. She cleverly selects props which make the photo more interesting to look at. The second image in particular appeals to me because of the use of texture. I just love her use of colour too, adds a real delicate calm feeling to the work.

Alexandra Cameron

Alexandra's work is simply beautiful. Her portfolio ranges from fashion to personal projects all of which can be seen on her website. To have the ability to capture so many different scenes and emotions is incredible. I really relate to her work as she is able to create powerful emotive scenes. The one below is a recent favourite. I think because at how she has composed it and how I am able to relate to this. The lighting and everything just works. She manages to get across through photography what I can't put into words. I really urge you to check out her work.

Artist Talks: Phoebe Atkey

Phoebe Atkey is a talented artist whose work I first saw on Instagram. Her commitment and enthusiasm for the arts is very inspiring. Her detailed drawings and attention to detail is what makes her stand out. Phoebe currently has over 25,000 followers in Instagram where she often uploads work. I interviewed Phoebe to gain more of an insight to her interests and how she creates such beautiful works using a variety of media.

How often do you draw? 
I try to draw everyday, even if it is just 15 minutes. What artists influence you?  I have always been interested in children’s book illustrations especially those of Quentin Blake and Ernest Shepherd. These two artists inspired me to draw from a very young age. As I have got older, I have also become interested in the works of Saul Bass, Herbert Leupin and Paul Rand.
Do you see yourself going to Art School?  I would like to try getting into the industry without going to uni. However, I am lucky to live near an extremely good arts university, s…

Royal Drawing School Year Show - 2018/2019 review

Being content and tolerating uncertainty

It's been well over a year since my last blog post. I've been writing still just not in a consistent space. I've got a few pieces over at On the Beat Mag and on the Pressing Matters Journal. It's funny how I'm starting off by trying to show how I have been keeping busy, as a way of defining my offline presence on this space. This is something I have always been very good at maintaining, an image of being busy and content in what I am doing. I think with this keeping busy, comes a sense of running from oneself in order to keep my head above the water. In recent weeks I have been writing a lot more than I have been making art. I have had projects on the go, but not pushing myself fully into them which I find frustrating because I'm not being fully present in the moment of what I am doing. In this I perhaps lose the essence of why I am doing it.

When you are in a state of transition there are a few ways you can process? deal? tackle? it. I am someone who has alway…
