Inspiring Photographer: Andrew Yee

This is a photographer I have found recently. I really love the soft tones in most of his work. Yee is from Hawaii but now lives and works in New York. Yee does a lot of soft yet edgy studio shoots, along with the occasional location photoshoot.

Inspiring Photographer: Olivia Bee

Olivia Bee to me is such an inspiring photographer, she has been noticed at the age of fithteen and it there is no question that she has talent. Olivia Bee's images have a beautiful feel to them, some are taken with 35mm and the ones that aren't still achieve the grainy, 35mm film effect. Olivia Bee's images are beautifully magical, and some are very story-like.  

I love the way Olivia Bee uses colours and noise to make her photographs look almost vintage, I think that it gives her work a very homey feeling. As though they are shots from your dreams, almost like memories.

So I am getting so bored. I need something spectacular to shoot. I am bored of my photographs being the same. I want some models, make-up artists, hair stylists, stylists, set designer, I need the Canon 5D mrk II. I have some really big idea's I want to shoot but I need money, and people. If I had the opportunity to make one of these shoots I would drop everything and do the shoot. I would love it so much, and maybe then I wouldn't be unmotivated and rubbish anymore.

At night

At night time I always lay awake in my bed for ages, for no reason what so ever. Even when I am completely drained of energy and need to sleep, I almost always end up putting off sleep. This then results in having to wake up early after few hours sleep and feeling shattered. At the moment I lay in bed listening to Bon Iver, just thinking and doing not much else. Is this what you all do?

New Experience

I just had a new experience. I was tying the laces on my boots and I pulled them and the lace snapped. I love these shoes.

In The Morning

Every morning I love a cup of tea.

Found this

I found this photograph in my recycling bin and realized I never actually uploaded it anywhere...

The Armchair

Photoshoot on Friday 20th May

So I have a photoshoot coming up on Friday, like one with real models. They are twins, I haven't met them yet but should be meeting them with adam on thursday. At the moment I am scouting locations. We wanted a little wooden boat to shoot on, but I'm not sure we can get one. We were thinking of going somewhere on the norfolk broads, but I can't find where I can get a little boat from, I don't want one of the modern ones you ca hire. I want a small wooden sailing boat. It doesn't even need to move, just sit on the shore of the water. So I was thinking that we could go Hunstanton which had rock pools, that could be beautiful, and I'm sure there's some little boats on the beach. I wish some shop would let us borrow their clothing for a shoot. A boutique has asked me to shoot their clothes for them so that should be great.
I will update later. Leaving a photograph below.
See you.
