Alongside my official Camden Encounters I'm having, I was invited to take the official photos of the other artists and partners involved in Camden 50.

Taking these pix has given me a privileged behind-the-scenes insight into everyone else's work and working processes. And also into them! As a photographer, I love to take photos of people in their own environments or during the course of a normal day. As an artist, I love the challenge of creating a portrait with and of another artist. How to show what is going on inside, from the out? This is true of course for all people, but somehow with artists this topic feels more up for grabs.

As a result, some shoots are pretty straight forward, whilst others can be more of a negotiation.

But whilst the straight forward is easier (to get the pic I might want, and they might be pleased with), often it's the negotiation sessions that give me more food for thought afterwards. About portraiture and photography, and performance.

I am certainly one of these negotiations!
