Creative Portraits of Writer Sarah Dry

The Brighton writer, Sarah Dry got in touch for some creative portraits for her new book on Isaac Newton (The Newton Papers – Oxford University Press). So on a cold, dull and drizzly November morning I loaded the car with my photography gear and headed over to her lovely home in Brighton, which by coincidence was 2 streets away from where I live!

Sarah needed the new headshot portraits for the book cover, the publisher’s website and for other PR to promote the book sales.

Sarah wanted her portrait photography to be quite relaxed and so we set up a small location studio in her living room and spent just a few minutes making some simple studio-style shots. Then we popped into her garden for the rest of her photoshoot. This was so Sarah would have a choice of different style of portrait for the book cover.

I love the gentle calmness to these portraits, and I wish Sarah all the best with the new book.

Colin Bell by Brighton Portrait Photographer

Colin Bell has a new novel published in a few weeks and got in touch to have a new set of publicity headshot portraits.

I set up a small studio in his delightful Lewes home and we made some memorable and atmospheric images. Colin was brilliant in front of the camera as can be seen by this image below.

Colin’s novel is titled ‘Stephen Dearsley’s Summer of Love’ and will be published by Ward Wood. And btw – Colin’s blog is a fascinating place to spend some time too (www.wolfiewolfgang.com).

Here’s my favourite from the photoshoot, looking not unlike he should be starring in some Scandanavian TV crime series.

Brighton Studio Portrait of the Writer Jeremy Good

The writer Jeremy Good has a new book coming out and wanted a series of PR publicity photos to promote it for posters, the web and the book sleeve. After he had a bit of a marathon drive over from Chichester we finally spent a couple of hours in my Brighton photographic studio and worked through a few really diverse looks for him.

Jeremy is a lovely guy and was great to work with and I wish him well for the book.

Here are just four of my favourite shots – all taken with the remarkable Nikon D3s, 70-200 VR11 and a few Elinchrom lights.
