Portraits for a young film maker | Editorial photographer in Bath

Editorial photography for a young film maker in Bath

We recently had the pleasure of photographing London film maker Shaz Fard, producing editorial portraits with him and his very spectacular film camera.

Shaz's dapper look was matched by the 'Vanity Fair' lighting and set styles. Shaz studied at Central St Martin's and says:

"My passion lies within the realms of Cinema; I consider the Camera as a time machine, the Cinema screen as a Dream Machine and Cinema as a Dreamscape. I paint with light and "sculpt with time" to create journeys, to pierce into the audiences soul and bring them out into the fabric of something entirely new.

There are many films that have inspired me, but Memento was a key influence on me when I watched it over 15 years ago. Its the film that sparked a desire within myself to become a filmmaker. It’s a film I keep coming back to and re-watching. Those are the best films, the ones that stand the test of time and you can always enjoy. Over the years as I became more aware of cinema several other films have also inspired me to a similar effect, such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, lots and lots of Jean-Luc Godard!!! and many more!

Got to keep making films, always learning, always experimenting! If I’m not making films, I find myself talking about them."
