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.

Small change makes a big difference

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 :)

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.

Unplanned portraits

Sometimes during the shoot I see someone from a team who in my opinion will look great in the picture. During a shoot for one of the designer companies, the owner of the company was present, he was a great character and I wanted to take his portrait. He agreed and I wanted to create a dramatic portrait with a lot of shadows. Something like well known portrait of singer Seal

I wanted to create something mysterious and simple, yet strong.

The lighting that I used was one head with a 2m diameter umbrella.


Glamour or not to glamour?

  I rarely visit my native land these days, but last time I was in Poland I received a proposal to shoot a girl who wanted to give some pictures of herself to her fiancée. All I knew was that she would like to have ‘’nice’’ pictures, that’s all. Everything was ready to go. Read the rest of this entry »

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!!!
