Inspiration: I have a passion for photography and cinematography, and I am influenced highly by the work I see, be it photographs or film. When I find a subject that interests me, I explore every aspect of it to try and find a new way of looking at it, that provokes thought and response in the audience, that creates interest and respect in the subject. I want to go on to be a cinematographer for film, so I try to make my photographs have that cinematic appeal to them, as if taken from a scene of a film. I like the challenge of trying to tell a story through a single image as opposed to a sequence, or a film, because you have to make sure you get enough information from that one frame that will engage the audience, that will make them look twice, and even change their opinions about the subject, and themselves.
Title: The Recruits
Description: This is for my Photography exam unit on Personal View of Society. I originally wanted to explore Fishermen, continuing a social documentary project from AS level, but my mind switched when i found out one of my friends had recently joined the crew at Rye Harbour. When i arrived to photograph her, it turned out her twin sister had also joined, and the crew were very happy to help me out. So they fired up the tractor and moved the boat out of the boat house and onto the slip way. Using what was left of the available light, i took as many photographs as i could, and this was my favourite from the shoot. I chose them as a subject because the RNLI team are all volunteers, and they risk there lives for others out of kind will. And i thought it was about time people gave a bit more thought to them, there crews, and what they go through.
