There have been some big changes at Garage and with the large amount of work and teaching that we are doing we felt the time had come to go and recruit a new shooter. Its become even more necessary now as our lighting expert Natasha is working more in London on both stills and video shoots, producing some great work for other photographers. So we have…. *drumroll* a new in-house photographer who we would like to introduce to you all.
He is the man with the magic button pressing finger, Kenny McCracken, you can see his work on the cover of the new Brighton Source magazine. When they heard he was back in the photography game they snapped him up as their new cover artist, so now he will be shooting all the future Source covers and your favourite Brighton studio is back at the helm of Brighton’s favourite magazine. The shot below is of PulpPress author Danny Hogan, at Garage Studios.

We will show you a lot more of his work soon, but have great news Kenny will also be one of our in-house tutors. He is funny, charismatic photographer with bags of personality and an unshakeable confidence in his images, which he honed by spending a long time assisting Rankin at Dazed and Confused many years ago, and then assisting renowned commerical photographer Dave Ellis. He used to work full time as a photographer, but left to front two successful bands and live off healthy PRS cheques, but he has now returned to photography as a full time career.
To this date, Kenny is the only photographer that Kevin has assisted and the first person to show him that lighting could be fun. He is a great addition to Garage and has experience of both stills and video, and he learnt his trade many years back when digital cameras were still a twinkle in someones eye. More importantly though Kenny is a keen creative individual, an invaluable facet of a photographer is an enthusiasm to produce and more importantly showcase work- so expect a lot more from him soon. (Oh and don’t worry I will kick him off his smoke machine addiction by the tiume you read this- Kev).
If there is anything he doesn’t know about composition, lighting and drawing something from your subject then we have yet to find it. You can be sure we thoroughly roadtest any photographer that works under the Garage name, so be assured we are very confident about this guy and his work. We will post a blog about the above shoots, with some of the ideas behind the images later in the week.
You can book him for any shoot through the usual way of mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
