Daniel Broadley//Photography&Film//

I first came across Daniel Broadley through his collaboration with Kate Mcgill and the band Meadowlark whose beautiful raw music I listen to on repeat. I was fortunate enough to see them perform at the end of the year in London. However I also follow Dan's Instagram and film work and have for some time now. I wanted to share his work with you because I think he has a real talent for capturing the landscape and the way people interact with the spaces around them.

Composition is key within photography and it is through following his work I have gained a better understanding about the framing of composition and how this really impacts a shot. He has a real ability to create an atmospheric narrative with his work. The second photograph captures a ghostly figure and just has so much emotion to it. Such a beautiful photo and one of my favourites that includes people within the composition.

The beauty of his photography is that he really captures the sense of space within the landscape and you gage through looking at his body of work that he takes the time to consider this to create dramatic energy within the image.



                                      

There is a real calming effect with his work that I think people will appreciate and I highly recommend you looking at his Instagram account to see more of his stunning work!

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…
