Material Girl

In order for Gemma to be allowed to come with me on my road trip to Cornwall, we had to shoot some commercial images for her agency portfolio while we were there. While this is a totally normal type of request, in all honestly I found it really hard because the idea of being commercial has never been particularly inspiring to me, I always strive for originality in my photographs and I've never really thought of it as a way to generate money, only a way to generate images that explore what I feel is interesting and beautiful in the world.

However we had a go, and I actually really love these polaroids we took, I guess sometimes you just have to find a way to make commercial work for you, and do it your own way.

These two we took in the beautiful house we stayed in in Penzance:

And these two we shot amid the magnolia blossoms in a park across the road:
