Ian Derry is an editorial and advertising photographer, specialising in celebrity portraits and sports photography.
Ian is a new comer to Motel but we throughly enjoyed having him in the studio. He was armed with a whole host of lights for his shoot, and quite rightly so, as he was shooting 3 different looks and setups for Channel 4. It was a jam packed but very successful day all round!
Looking through Ian's photography we enjoy how you are drawn into his images, especially within the sports shots.
The positioning and composition of the figures catches the eye and take you deep into the heart of the image. The use of surrounding space doesn't distract from the main element, instead it helps to enhance the image and provides essential space (where needed) and finer details, that tell the story and give us as the viewer an understanding of where we are and essentially sets the scene.
