Hello and welcome to Ante Up Photography! As of 2024, I'm excited to take you deeper into my work, unveiling behind-the-scenes moments that make each photoshoot a unique adventure. The Collaborative Team:
The Person Behind the Camera:
But first, let me reintroduce myself. I'm Joe Cleary, a proud Northerner and your guide through the world of captivating portraits and dynamic studio photography. My work goes beyond freezing moments in time; it's about creating stories that resonate. I've had some amazing experiences that I'm eager to share.
Academic Excellence Meets Artistic Flair:
Armed with a first-class degree from the University of Salford, my academic journey has been a fusion of technical mastery and unbridled passion. It's not just about capturing images; it's about crafting visual symphonies that speak to the heart. During the pandemic, I worked away at home, fueling my creative buzz and handing in assignments. It was a chance to reflect on my work and decide on my future in this creative practice.
A Sneak Peek into the Creative Process:
In this warm and friendly blog post, I'll take you behind the scenes of one of my recent photoshoots, which took place in Bolton at Atlas Studios. This studio holds a special place in my heart; I've worked here for three years, witnessing productions big and small, from documentaries and fashion campaigns to photography workshops and more. Expect a candid peek into my artistic process, where every frame tells a story, and every moment is a celebration of creativity.
The Set A Light Advantage:
Curious about how I bring my shots to life? Let's talk about Set A Light, a game-changer in my photography toolkit. This program is a must-have for any new photographer learning studio lighting. Set A Light by Elixxier is a 3D environment in which you can recreate a studio set! Using industry-standard equipment and modifiers, it provided me with great knowledge to work with, and I can't wait to try out more of these techniques!
