Music, Fashion and Still Life Photographer John Latham
This week we caught up with North West based photographer and graphic designer John Latham. His passion for photography has given him the chance to capture bands and musicians in what appears to be a less pressurised and commercial environment. With a mix of fashion, still life and travel photography under his belt, John has worked with bands and artists such as Carl Barat, Ryan Jarman and Sunshine Underground.
What are you up to at the moment and what do you have planned for the future?
“At the moment I’m working at a studio doing graphic design, photography and video production. That’s how I started out in the creative industry with graphic design, and then photography followed. I’ve recently been doing some behind the scenes video production for a few fashion shoots which has been really interesting.
I feel like its good to put some creative direction and composition into moving image, especially because film and cinema is a big influence in my work so actually working in that area is perfect at the moment. I want to do some documentary films and possibly some short films with friends in the future. I’m also planning an exhibition for late 2012 which will be a photography project I’m working on documenting the contrast of lifestyles in my local area. Its dangerous, exciting and hard work so I’m looking forward to releasing more details about it soon.”
