Portrait Of The Week Series - No.7: Josh Leys

A regular gig for me is shooting publicity images for local music artists. Singer/songwriter Josh Leys recently contacted me to produce fresh images for him (I'd shot Josh once before a few years back), so after a few weeks of scheduling conflicts, we finally managed to coordinate a time when we could spend a few hours together creating images.

To compliment Josh's last video, we decided to shoot on the beach and jetty at Devonport. The brief was to produce "bright, sunny, pop" images, so the location was perfect.

The entire shoot was with natural light only, which meant that we could shoot quickly, covering a range of different angles. As you can see, Josh is extremely photogenic - and out of the 400-odd photographs taken that afternoon, only a very few needed culling.
