BNE Project - Matt Rabbidge Photoshoot
Timelapse from the photoshoot can be seen here: Mark Lobo Photography News
As part of the "second degree" of the BNE project, a photographic project looking at people's inspirations, chosen by the subjects of the photos themselves, I did a shoot for Matt Rabbidge from 9 Lives. Matt was chosen as the inspiration of Nick Crocker, one of the first portraits of the series as his inspiration for the project. Trying to capture someone you don't really know well in a portrait can be quite a challenge, but I suppose that's what makes the project fun to shoot. One of the inspiring stories behind Matt is the collaborative effort with his friends to get the 9 lives gallery off the ground. With this in mind, we chose the gallery as the perfect location, and invited everyone along for the shoot. We started off with a few solo portraits at the front of the gallery and set up a second camera to record a time lapse of the shoot. I later found that my favourite shot was one off of the second camera. The shot that really captured Matt was one of him sitting, looking into the main room of the gallery, as I set up for the shoot. I couldn't have hoped to capture a better moment without even holding the camera!
