Talking pictures with Alice Chapman

Alice Chapman thrives on both the involvement and the challenge of working with large creative teams, pushing boundaries, organising everything prior the photographic session and watching it all fall into place. Introducing interesting props and the involvement of animals can also be evident throughout her works. Alice is the photographer behind the Meen Clothing editorial featured in this issue.

What sort of equipment and software did you use for the shoot and editing?

For this particular shoot, I used my Nikon D800. However, it really doesn’t matter what you have, it’s all about how to use it. For post-production editing, I usually swap between Lightroom and Photoshop.

What were you hoping to achieve with this shoot? 

For this shoot we wanted to express summer, using colour and energetic poses.

In an industry that is saturated by photographers, what do you do to ensure your work stands out?

Indeed, it is! The main thing, with anything in life is, “your vibe attracts your tribe”, keep being you, work hard, stay enthusiastic and motivated. Personally, I love trying out new ideas, poses, forever being inspired by old, new, music, light, composition – it’s endless. I believe the team is also key, I had a fantastic time shooting on this set, our energy and ideas bounced off each other!

What are the essential items that make a great shoot?

Planning and preparing a brief beforehand.
