There was once a little photographer who wanted to be a fashion photographer. The photographer tried time and time again to get into the London College of Fashion to do their Fashion Photography BA but was never accepted. However that little photographer managed to get a job shooting fashion and product images for one of the biggest photography companies in the UK, and the little photographer got to work for iconic brands like Austin Reed, Mary Portas and House of Fraser.
The little photographer was now a little fashion photographer and was initially very happy. But then the vacuousness of the fashion industry began to get to the little fashion photographer and despite working with fantastically awesome people, the little fashion photographer began to get a more than a little jaded.
After a year or so the little fashion photographer reverted back to just being little and virtually gave up photography completely. Eighteen months went by and little’s closest friend asked if she’d like to photograph a LRP event. Little didn’t really know what LRP was, but her closest friend was very persuasive and so little went along and had a go.
Little became a little photographer once more and began to make friends with the most enormously talented artists who came together in a LRP field on a regular basis. Soon the little photographer began to see that lots of the artists didn’t have good photography of their beautiful pieces of art and that made the little photographer sad, because people this talented should be able to show off what they do to the whole world.
So the little photographer became a little product photographer once again and decided to give these artists pictures of their work that they can be really proud of. And the little product photographer enjoyed it way more than she did when she was photographing vacuous fashion images.
With thanks to the following artists who gave me so much joy to photograph their work:
