2014 Artists Series Featuring Photographer Eddie Collins

Eddie Collins is a New York based fashion and beauty photographer.  Within his devotion to his art,   high end photography,  he captures the true  vibrant essence of  New York City , that certain  noise of the city.  Whether working in his studio or on location, this artist's  style shines brightly through his lens. 


Fashion Photography in the Studio
A true personal success story, having risen from what would be a difficult life for any child  in Australia;  he lived in a world of orphanages and foster homes, then he spent most of his youth circling the globe and gradually made his way to Paris, where he found a home and stayed three years and then moved to New York.



On Location
 The juxtaposition of Positive and Negative/ Light and Shadow  spaces thrills me in this image!


He has  led memorable lives in cities too many to mention;  including Paris, London, Milan, Munich and Tokyo. Eddie told me of an occurrence in Marrakesh where his equipment was stuck in customs red tape for what seemed like forever. What did Eddie do, why he made new friends and had a blast playing soccer with the locals.


Freedom

Eddie capturing the essence and wonder at once. He loves to experience cities by hiding amongst the local people and learning about different cultures.




Brilliant use of light, color palette, contrast!


Desert Magazine 
An amazing leisure spread!
Hallie Barry

Hallie, a  natural woman with little guise, in spite of a heavy schedule, she formed a strong connection with Eddie  and stayed on after the photo shoot for hours to spend some MUCH needed leisure time!



Lisa Ling

Eddie has given some words of wisdom for the beginning photographer:/ artist. 

It is so important to gain perspective on who you are and what you believe in, stay true and consistent to that vision. Stand up for yourself, be realistic. Be able to brand yourself and look to work with those who love what you do.

Karen, I loved this post! I am somewhat photo dyslexic so it really helped me understand composition so that I can improve my photos. When I get a good one, its by accident! I'm getting a bit better for the blog, though I never get off manual!
Best,
Liz
