A series of portraits for these days where we spend a lot of time on our own. Enjoy!
A follower and fellow photographer sent me a message asking the following: “Xav, are you doing any photography work during the lockdown? If so, could you share some advice on pricing, adding value to my work and how to get paid. Everyone expects me to work for free these days”
Now that I have the time to do the things I never had the time to, I’m gathering collections of photographs from my food photography to go on my portfolio. These collections I think are visually strong, show consistency on my style and are eye candy for potential new clients.
For the last week or so, I’ve been sorting the hard drives with all my personal work. Stuff like holiday snaps, street photography, architecture, events and pretty much anything that I had the time to shoot in between jobs or on my spare time and they seemed to be meaningless until now.
Here’s another set of fine art photos from a recent trip to Oaxaca.
It’s week 3 of the quarantine here in the U.K. and I just wanted to stay in touch and give you an update of what I’ve been up to these days and how I’m dealing with all this time in my hands.
Hey, hope everyone is safe out there.
I don’t even know how to start this post, life got busy since my last post with pictures from Frida’s house and a couple of weeks later, everything stopped. I don’t think anyone was prepared for this.
But of course, I’m not going to show you what’s inside Frida’s house and museum! In this post, I’m going to show you what I found the most interesting and fascinating about the Casa-Museo Frida Kahlo in Mexico City.
Hi Xav, I was looking at your work on your website and couldn’t understand why, in some of your dish photos, you chop the top and/or bottom of the plates, is this on purpose or accidental? I don’t know why but I like the idea.
“A cheap job will never be good.
A quick job may be cheap but never good.
“A good job will never be quick, nor cheap”
Hey, I’m back!
Excuse my lack of posts. If you have been following me on Instagram you’ve seen that I had a crazy busy start of the year, went away for half of January and then came back to a few more crazy busy days.
Happy New Year!
Nothing major happened over here during the festive season. We were just drinking coffee, reading books, watching films and waited for Christmas and the new year to be done because we are going to Mexico in a couple of weeks.
