Painting by Fred Fields
The majority of my shoots are with photographers whose end goal from a shoot is to create photographs, but on occasion the photographs are just one step in a long creation process. Time is elusive, but a while back I worked with an artist who took reference photos for his paintings. I was immediately impressed with the quality of his work - gorgeous whimsical scenes with fairies, plants and animals - and had a feeling great works of art would be created from our photos.
