Crossharbour by KRULA   When I was approached by the band Crossharbour I’d never heard about them before. They were looking for a photographer who would help them to create a cover for their CD and images for PR purposes.  As soon as we met a brainstorm started, for a few hours we had been bouncing some ideas forwards and backwards. We knew that we want to create something different, they are in the very competitive market of  Irish Music, and it is even harder for them as they are a band with its roots in  London.  So we wanted to highlight their London roots.

Holi One

Holi One by KRULA PHOTOGRAPHY    Sometimes you look for opportunities and sometimes they just cross your path when you least expect. For me it was the Holi One festival. I’d never heard about this festival before,  inspired by Indian celebration. To be honest it was first time it  took place in London. It is a music festival and every hour they countdown and then everybody throws coloured powders in the air.  When I’d seen the trailer I was mesmerised and excited by the explosions of the colours.

Small change makes a big difference

Posted: November 27th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Faces of Tattoo, Inspirations, ONE PERSON STUDIO, Photoshop Techniques, Portrait, Portrait Photography | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | No Comments »
When I started my ONE PERSON STUDIO – Real Faces of Tattoo project I wasn’t 100 % sure about the concept. I knew I wanted to photograph tattooists. I had some idea how I’d like the background to look, how to set up the lights. I knew that I wanted to portray them the way they are. The way I see them. The way they are to me, as it is always one’s interpretation of the person whose portrait is taken.
But what is interesting for me is how this project is evolving, how I change the light, backgrounds.
Firstly I wanted background to be neutral black but now I let it to be different but not crowded, not overpowering.
I want it to be background, simple. But now I experiment with light and by changing angles I had to change the postproduction process. Hope you like the new images and that they will be good addition to the portraits I shot so far.
Studio in Richmond is the first studio where I changed my standard setting and I think it was worth it. Changes are always good :)

DUNCAN X
I knew when I started a “REAL FACES OF TATTOO” project, that during the process I would meet some amazing people. I also knew that most of the artists’ work would be inspiring to many. Some of us are inspired so much that we even decide to let them put ink under our skin, for life.
But I knew that not only is their work inspiring, but artists themselves are source of inspiration for many including me. I’m so glad that they let me portray them.
I’d like to share with you ‘A film directing first from Alex Nicholson, this dark short film features Duncan X, a tattooist from South London reminiscing about his life and work.’ This tattooist was one of the first artists portrayed in my project.

ONE PERSON STUDIO by Maciek Krula
  Some time ago I started a new project called ONE PERSON STUDIO – because I photograph only one person at a time and I carry the studio myself.
The idea was born from the urge to photograph people who are interesting, but not specially interested in visiting a photographic studio to have their picture taken.

Steve Vinall by Maciek KrulaMatty Darienzo by Maciek Krula Duncan X by Maciek Krula    WSara Night by Maciek Krula hen winter came and it was too cold to go out on the street to take pictures I came up with another idea for portraits.
I decided to portray tattoo artists. So far no one has come up with a similar project – always a good sign.
I’m not saying no-one has taken a picture of a tattoo artist, but I don’t know of another photographer who has focused on a whole series.

Shoot with ODF

I love working with new companies with their fresh view on things and their enthusiasm to try new ideas. Working with them sometimes involves a bumpy ride but, most of the time the fruits of this cooperation are very satisfying. Here is the outcome of my cooperation with one of these companies. These are very classic designs but with a fresh twist. I know they are going to be very successful and I’m glad to be part of working with them.

Ladies and Gents, let me present to you – ODF Clothing!!!
