David LaChapelle

I have been looking at David LaChapelle's work because of his style, its very bold, bright and quirky. i like the mix of different objects that he puts together in one shot, its this mix that makes his work stand out so much. i would like to take inspiration from this kind of style and work it into my own work, so i can create some prints that are bold and bright, and suitable for the highstreet.

Paris was a great inspiration for me with my final major project, especially Versailles. I took quite a few photographs whilst i was there, this was because the building was just so beautiful and there was so many inspiring images there. I was specifically looking at the statues of lions, i was drawn to these from the start, because i feel that i could create some really nice drawings from these which i could work into my ideas for final major project.
