I shot with Ian a few weeks ago as part of his "Liberated Ladies" project after initially contacting him about working together as I really liked his style of portraiture. Pre-shoot communications were excellent and Ian was very professional sending over a release form and making sure I had arranged a chaperone in advance.
What I found impressive was that he took time before shooting to have a chat with me and get to know me a bit which informed the different shots we tried out. We had talked about dance before but on arrival Ian had a good look at my bookshelf and saw me as an academic as well!
Ian had loads of different ideas to try out during our time together and I love the "messy hair" shots he took of me -- normally I love my hair looking straight and smooth.
