The lively shot above is one of Sam Dean’s favourite shots. As our Photographer Spotlight of the week, we’ll be featuring one of his favourite shots everyday.
This is one of Sam’s favourites because:
"This is an example of catching an offbeat moment from a staged production. Everything was going wrong at this tourism shoot. The idea revolved around a family that is touring a corn maze, but when we went out there, there were far too many regular Joes. It was hard to keep them out of our production area, but we worked quickly and were able to get an image the client liked."
We asked Sam where he looks for inspiration.
"My early work was very much impacted by the photojournalist, Alex Webb. I still really like his use of color and shape. These days, I cruise Tumblr or Instagram, usually looking for outdoor adventure lifestyle images that inspire me. It’s amazing how many great photographers there are out there I’ve never heard of."
See you tomorrow for another one of Sam’s favourite images!
