New Exhibition : Brighton Photo Bienniale

Here at Garage Studios we have picked the photographer that we’d like to showcase during the Photo Biennial 2010 , he is fairly new to Brighton, and relatively young but a real talent.

We have chosen him not just for the overall strength of his work but because of the DIY aesthetic and the method/process that he embraces, something that is very important to both Kevin and Matt. He has produced numerous zines and short publications as well as taking off for long trips into unknown territories in the search of both new work and also new photographers. He has been keen to promote the work of others, as equally, if not more than his own, a very rare thing in todays world of commercial photography. He is a photographer with ‘soul’ and has a desire to push himself to find the next picture in both the mundane and the ordinary- whilst also swiftly adopting subcultures and representing them with a raw authenticity.

We will reveal dates soon and details of the artist’s site, bio etc… but we are very excited about this, and it will hopefully showcase the direction that our creative studio is going. If you feel stuck in your work, or produce the same image over and over again, then come to this show and prepare to have your eyes opened.

Spindle Shoot at Garage Studios

It’s all go here at Garage - we have Spindle magazine in for a Menswear shoot and we’re streaming everything live on ustream.

We first trialled streaming a photoshoot on Kevin’s recent 90s swimwear shoot and you can see some of the final images from that on Kevin’s website and the videos from the day are on our ustream channel.

Spindle launched in May this year and is a quarterly free magazine showcasing emerging talent across the fields of fashion, music, art and design. Although it was launched in Brighton Spindle is a national magazine that goes against the grain and refuses listings, press images and reviews; if you didn’t see the first issue you really should have a look.

Keep checking throughout the day to see the whole thing unfold live and we’ll keep you updated via twitter.

Shotopop and Skin at Garage Studios

Earlier this year, in deepest darkest January, we hired out Garage Studios to Shotopop who wanted some killer shots of Skin for her website.

To build the 5 sets Shotopop used no less then 80 sheets of 40-inch foam board and 60 tubes of superglue and they were also in charge of the photography. The in-house team here at Garage helped to bring the images alive with M. Halls and Tash in charge of the lighting of the intricate sets.

Shotopop are a creative company working just off the river Thames (that’s in London you know) and offer tactile and digital illustration, design for print and interactive media, motion graphics and everything before, in-between and after. Have a look at their website here.

The final pictures are amazing and we loved the chance to work with such lovely people, beautiful sets and an incredibly cool model in Skin.
