James Musselwhite11.30 – James Musselwhite – Six Short Stories

Photography is the ultimate storytelling tool. In this presentation, photographer James Musselwhite shares six stories from his multi-genre repertoire of portrait images taken around the UK. 

We discover how the images were shot technically and most importantly, the story that drove each image.  We learn how each client journey began through to the motivations and techniques behind the tale of each individual’s finished portrait.

James shares the stories of a Cross Channel Swimmer, a Security Guard in a Caravan, An Amputee Naval Officer, Ballroom Dancing Champions, a Proud Performer and a Wrestler with a Dream. Each image showcases the power of photography to capture a moment in time and ultimately tell the story of those in front of the lens.
