Hannah

I made these photographs with the very beautiful Hannah less than three weeks ago, yet for some reason it seems likes months ago? I did the whole shoot on film, which can cause ‘issues’ because it’s quite ‘revealing’, showing-up every flaw and imperfection – fortunately, Hannah doesn’t appear to have any flaws or imperfections, probably down to her regular pole-dancing and healthy eating (according to her Instagram account)

All images were made using a Nikon F100 and 50mm 1.4G (1,3,5,6) and an Olympus MjuII 35mm compact. Film is Fuji Superia 400, developed and scanned at UK Film Lab.

    These are amazing, Phil, really. And Hannah… wow, what a true, classic, natural beauty. Your images of women always look so ‘unposed’, I know there’s a degree of posing in an portrait genre, but your portraits of women always look like you were just sitting round, having a chat and took some photos while you were at it! Extremely well done.

    When I look at your portraits, especially your portraits of women, I get extremely emotional! I don’t know what it is? I know the ladies you photograph are already ‘physically beautiful’, but you seem to bring out something else, an inner beauty. That is a very rare talent, Mr K.

    Your work reminds me a lot of Mario Testino – not in a way that I think you emulate him, you have a style and individuality all of your own. No, you have the same obvious magnetism, empathy, charm and an ability to put a woman totally at ease with herself. You also have the same talent, and I suspect, charisma 🙂
    Hannah is stunning, she reminds me of a very young Meryl Streep. Superb work, both of you.

    I would love, so much, for you to photograph me, Phil. However, I have a partner who thinks that any kind of nude photography is pornography. So I’m ashamed to say that I stay covered because he won’t allow it.
    Obviously I don’t see your work as anywhere close to porn, it’s beautiful portraiture of beautiful people. I just wish I could do it, I know I’d find it empowering…

    So many of the top photographer’s work is formulaic, every shot starts to look the same – I realise style is important, but not to the detriment of aesthetics. You, Phil, are different to most – even though you have an obvious and unique ‘style’, every single series, even shot, is completely fresh. I know that every time I visit your site I’ll be reborn, visually and inspirationally. Keep it going, the world needs it.

    Lucky Hannah, that’s all I can say – to be photographed in such a beautiful way by such a great photographer. And lucky Phil – to be born with a talent that allows you to put women, incredibly beautiful women, at such ease. Well done, both of you.
