One Shot

‘One shot’ features environmental portraits of creative people made using analogue medium format cameras and allowing only ‘one shot’.  This was self exhibited in a pop up setting, featured by the BBC and the Australian cultural magazine Junkies (now Re:Think), MAP6 and Bob Books, and self published as a book.  I made 150 portraits in a year, this is a selection.

The challenge to use the analogue photographic process to make a portrait in ‘one shot’ using vintage equipment was ostensibly about testing myself, the process and the medium, to see whether it was possible to obtain useable, publishable work in this way, because in the digital age this seems less of a possibility than it actually is.
