Here are some photographs I took to promote a local hardcore band, Under Siege. They were looking for a striking and surrealistic effect so I utilised dodging, burning, HDR and Color Efex Pro to make them pack a punch. I was proud of the results but looking back would love to give them another go and produce a more realistic finish. It’s impossible, though, as they are currently without a drummer!

This portrait of lead guitarist Connor Wild is quite interesting. We utilised an abandoned animal feeding plant, which was quite scary, but gave a really nice effect.
