PhoLAC / Photokina

I was thoroughly priviledged to join some of my idols in a light painting Photobox at this years Photokina in Cologne.  
PhoLAC was an event organised by German Light Painting legend Jan Leonardo to celebrate the art of light painting at one of the worlds biggest photography expo's.
Not only was there a fantastic Light Art exhibitions but also a 3 day conference with talks from some of the worlds best light painters.  The Photobox, organised by the wonderful Bernhard Rauscher, was located on the central avenue of the convention centre and invited members of the public to participate in some 'live light painting' as a way of introducing this form of photography to a wider audience.
To say I had fun would be an understatement.
Here's some of my favourites from the afternoon I spent in the box.

I was even lucky enough to get a portrait of me 
by Eric Paré and Kim Henry;

And by far my favourate part of the weekend was the PhoLAC afterfun on friday night where all us light crazy people got to hang out, eat, drink, be merry and of course play with light.

Huge thank you to all involved. 
See you next time. x

Steel Magnolia

I always wanted to spin fire in a tree, 
and this tree is special. 
Its a Magnolia and I've been climbing it for 
as long as I can remember.

'Selfie' - Germany.

High on Lasers

Sophie is one of my favourite beings on the entire planet. 
Here's a series of photo's we did together in the attic last night. 

In case anyone is ever interested in my 'process' I figured I'd post all the attempts at this shot in chronological order so you can see the progression from first attempt to final image, which isnt neccesarily always the last one.
In this case i cant decide between 4 and 6
We shot this picture in my attic, which made using lasers a little difficult as you can hardly light a smoke bomb in a tiny space. 
We got around this by smoking. A lot. Which means that after six exposures we were all pretty high, so its amazing it worked out so well.
Massive thank you to Dom Bell who is definately my new favourite assistant!!

There's this guy called Eric Pare 
who's taken tube light painting to another level.

Here's our attempt at something similar....

We also did this;

This was the test shot - which turned out pretty cool too.
