[Angie] This is a slightly more personal post than normal. We’re a creative duo ourselves here at Morning Edit, Katy introduced you to her awesome ceramics a couple of weeks ago and I design and produce a series of prints (and a slowly expanding homewares collection) under the name Of Life & Lemons. But this post isn’t about me, it’s about a brilliant up and coming photographer friend of mine who I am lucky enough to have do my product photography. I did a shoot with O’Hanley last week and I am so chuffed with the results – here are a few of my favourites:

Ben of O’Hanley has the most amazing knack of capturing a fleeting moment in a really soft, dreamy way while keeping the image looking totally contemporary. Ben specialises in portrait photography as you can see from the shockingly beautiful examples below (although I happen to think he’s pretty good at product photos too…) I just love the delicately muted palettes that allow a certain feature such as the blues of eyes or pink of lips to really pop out – just beautiful.

Luckily for me and my prints he is also based in Leigh on Sea, Essex and for the last 15 years he has been combining work in the broadcast industry with commercial photography projects. You can get in touch with him via his website http://ohanley.co.uk should you wish to discuss any type of commission, Ben is open to pretty much any project. But just don’t keep him too busy eh?
