Photographing an Olympian – Julian Thomas by Alex Styles

Photographing an Olympian – Julian Thomas by Alex Styles

Posted on 3rd September, by admin in PicReach. No Comments

In August we asked photographers to share any images they had of Olympians. Alex Styles, a portrait photographer based in Wolverhampton, sent us a fabulous photograph of British Olympian Julian Thomas.

PicReach: How did you get to photograph an Olympian?

Alex: I had Julian turn up to the studio for a shoot with his girlfriend at the time.. We got chatting about how he was a professional athlete and it...

We love photo lovers and amateurs and really want them to become part of the site. We hope to write informative articles for them and do amazing interviews with photographers and equipment makers.

Should location be a key factor in selecting a photographer?

If you like the style and the style fits the project why not hire based on image. After all, like designing, photography is a creative process and (within reason and budgets) borders shouldn’t play a  huge role in the selection process.
