Simon Pankhurst Artist Blacksmith

For this assignment I was asked for a selection of photographs documenting Artist Blacksmith Simon Pankhurst in his forge in Bright, Victoria. The photographs are for a brochure so a variety of shots were needed.

Photographing in a forge against the black machinery while showing the colour of the metal as it was heated, twisted and worked was a challenge I really enjoyed. I also really enjoyed working with Simon as it became evident we were both perfectionists and both worked really hard to get the results we wanted. I hope you enjoy this small selection of photographs from the shoot.
