Bond Imaging Interview: 5 minutes with Melbourne Photographer Lindsay BLamey

A recent interview from the good people at Bond Imaging, Melbourne. I've used Bond Imaging for all my photographic exhibitions.. can't fault the service!

1. When did you start taking photos?
A common occurrence in our family when I was a child were 'Slide Night's'. My Father is a keen photographer and his 35mm slides from the 60's are some of our (my) most prized possessions. This led me to having a interest in photography from an early age and it always been something I've enjoyed. In 2006 I started taking it more seriously and have progressed from there.

2. Who/what has been an influence to your work?
As well as my Father, in the early years Ansel Adams was an influence but it was upon discovering Andreas Gursky that I really got hooked on photography. I have diverse style exploring urban landscapes and narrative styles. More recently Gregory Crewdson and Alex Prager's lighting, subjects and way of thinking has been a big influence on my narrative series. The slow burn of Australian cinema is also something that gets me in a photographic mood.

3. Can you tell us a little about your process, lighting techniques and equipment that you use? 
My process is very spontaneous.. I don't like to get technically bogged down. I'm currently shooting with a 5D using 50mm and 35mm primes  (I really enjoy composing through a fixed lens) I like to use ambient light where possible and I have been exploring strobes more lately with my narrative work. I'm constantly collecting themes and ideas in my mind locking them away for when the impulse to shoot comes. While the initial process is fast the post work can be slow. I like to live with the images for a while before sharing them. I will often sit on images for 6 months or more before they get my tick of approval.

4. Has your approach changed over time?
The main change has been working and thinking in the form of series of images and working towards the 'bigger picture' rather than single works. Also with landscapes now I find myself portraying  a theme or emotion through a number of works to strengthen the overall experience. I once used a lot of post P/Shop work but I find myself using as little as possible now as I gain confidence in my imagery. I'm also exploring lighting techniques more as the nature of my works evolve.

5. Which papers do you like to use and why?
I like traditional style papers like C-type lustre papers... more recently I have explored Bond's HD Endura prints and was blown away with the clarity and quality... I will be heading down this path with
suitable works in the future.


Works exhibited at Bruswick Street Gallery, Melbourne

Thanks to all who made it to BSG over the last few weeks. The show was a great success!
Below are the works (and a few extras) that were on show.


Photographic Exhibition @ BSG, Melbourne

BRUNSWICK STREET GALLERY (322 Brunswick St, Fitzroy)

I'm taking part in a group photography show at Brunswick Street Gallery.
I will be showing new works from two new series.
I will be making a return to my narrative works.. The new works are all about the unknown, the unexplored, the implied. Like a still from a film they tell a fragment of a story and invite the viewer to fill in the blanks.
The exhibition runs through to the 3rd of Feb.. hope to see you there... there will be lots of great work on show!

These are a collection of some of my portraits I have painted over the last year using my Father's 35mm Kodachromes from the 60's 70's for reference. Its been a great experience and I wanted to digest these visual memories and share them by recreating them with my own interpretation... These paintings are the result to date. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have creating them
