Two years have passed since my first photoshoot with filmmaker and scriptwriter James Joel Dann, and, at the same time, a great opportunity to update on our projects and developments, exchange ideas on visual expressions and contemporary challenges for freelancers in media.
James wanted to wander around central Manchester and Northern Quarter, to take some profile shots, so we did just that. I wanted to photograph him wearing his amazing jacket, purchased from Vietnam - which attracted loads of positive comments wherever we went - but also his red Puma tracksuit which I noticed in one of his short films. The light was really bad - a perfectly gloomy day in Manchester but we tried our best. James is natural and versatile in front of the camera and I enjoy capturing his honest, open and true nature.
**As it started to rain, we decided to shelter inside Chapter One which boosted as always an incredible atmosphere and allowed us to shoot inside. Coffee was amazing, too! Thank you!
James is now offering video services, so if you need a videographer, here is the link to his work: https://swiftvideo.co.uk
