Anastasia first caught our attention with her colourful portraits. These were beautifully shot with clean detail and depth that is second to none. We were very grateful that she allowed us to use her images on our website and were very impressed with her use of colour throughout her Instagam feed mixed with black and white photographs making the colours even more vivid. Her lifestyle/ snapshot style is mixed with a lovely artistic quality that elevates them. The images have their own stories and appear planned but also beautifully care free.

Jacopo Melani

@jacopomelani

Jacopo is an Italian photographer who’s use of space and distance within his work creates strong and intriguing narratives that first drew us in. We were really pleased when Jacopo said we could use his images, his use of light and shadows were so artistic and creative we wanted to understand the narrative behind them. Using equipment passed down to him we were so happy to hear that Jacopo was taking full advantage of the photography medium and his talent clearly shone through in his images.

K’s images on the beach using the reflections of the still water created a beautiful serenity that we simply loved. Her style of photography focusses mainly on her environment with single occupants populating the frame often adding a secondary narrative that allows the images to ask questions of the viewer. We were very happy that K let us use her beautiful images, go check her out for more incredible photographs.
