Dynamic Portrait

Dynamic portrait photoshoot working with two of London’s leading athlete and model agencies – W Model Management and BMA Models.

The idea behind this persoanl project was to have the athletes / models screaming with passion in each shot.

They were shot on a green screen / colorama background ready to be cut out. The exploding glass or particle effect was added in in post production thanks to Purple Matrix. Achieving this effect in one take with water or dust(?) would be amazing fun and difficult. I’ve tried it. Hanging plastic all around a studio to make a cube and then shooting inside.
