Taylor Lally – Musician

Before winter set in, I photographed Taylor Lally, a musician and singer from Northern Ireland, who is studying in Brighton.

I shot most of this on an 85mm f1.8 sometimes wide open, using the softness as an advantage. Moving around the forest we […]

There is the Chef Preston Blumenthal, the priest is Pastor Ted Bear and the […]
