Artist of the Week: Jules McDonald

This week we are happy to be celebrating Jules McDonald as our Artist of the Week! Jules introduces her self and her work a bit below, along with a few images from her Shed Profile. We'll be hearing more from Jules later in the week, but in the meantime please do visit her Shed Profile to see more of her work!
Rockout, by Jules McDonald

There is always an element of anticipation before a kids shoot as you are usually dealing with an unknown quantity. This is what gives you the buzz and possibly the headache! It's when you find your in one of those moments when there is almost a stillness, everything comes together and you know that you have the shot, it can last for a moment or a few minutes, possibly depending on the age of the sitter or just pure luck! A simple prop, colour or texture can suddenly add another dimension or an added interest making the shot your own. I love working within a studio, years of art direction have left me with a love of working within a controlled environment letting the kids give you the energy and unpredictability.
