A few months back I was contacted by Ernest Journal, a magazine whom I've done work with before to head down to Monmouthshire and photograph a man who builds machines, as always I was game and treated to an incredible assignment with massive photographic potential.
We arrived at the house of Nik Ramage and you got a great feeling when you walked through the door, nestles in the countryside, with useful things all over the place, down the garden lead to the shed where Nik does most of his work and where we got started with the shoot.
For this job I took just one Fuji X-E2 body with the 23mm and 56mm lenses and swapped them out as I needed them, this was one of my first proper outings with the 23mm and I was thrilled with how it felt to use and the images it allowed me to make. I tired to keep my shooting style fairly realistic as I like while getting a nice amount of coverage for the magazine.
This article and the images I shots are now in the third print issue of Ernest Journal so if you see one of your travels be sure to check it out! My editorial work is starting to gain real traction and allows me to visit some great places and meet fantastic people, something which I'm working on expanding this year.
