I wanted to create a new project over the winter to keep me occupied until it is warmer to continue shooting more self portraits
In this project I have decided to look into the detail of skin as there are many different textures on one personas body and there is so much detail. I have shot my models ribs, spine, hands (with Chalk), and stomach. I would like to focus more on skin and shoot with different models.
For this project we where given quotes to make a 3 minuet video piece. The video Piece had to be based on a quote. I had chosen a quote by Anton Chekov
“don’t tell me the moon is shinning; show me the glint of light on broken glass”
I chose this quote as I was instantly inspired and thought this would be a great opportunity to work with low light and bokeh. This video had to be created in an abstract way to create a unique piece. I was also inspired by “blink 182 Always” music video
I have focused the dreaming series on my emotions I like being lonely and I am often told to stop being so Distant or to stop day dreaming. I am just in my own world.
I focused these image on my lonely side. I have captured my self feeling lost and cold like a bad Dream, I have been washed up on beach and don’t know what to do or where to go. wanting to be loved but yet there so far away. all I can do is hope for there return. to pick me up from this gloomy place. This is just a Dream
why a self portrait ?
I have used my Self in these images as it is always challenge finding a model when I need them, I was inspired by photographer Miss Aniela for her self-portrait work as she also struggled to find models to photograph. I fell in love with her work and the way she has photographed her self in different locations and how she multiplies her self

I have posted a lot of my climbing photographs. I want to show more of an artistic side to my work.
This is my Dreaming series, where I have created Self portraits. I have used my Self in these images as I am often full of Photo ideas, but it always seems to be a challenge finding a model when I need them, and I did not want my inspiration to run low. I was feeling very artistic and grabbed my Camera and tripod and started shooting these images.
In these images I have used a nude like body suit to give my self nude look. I have found it a lot better using this outfit as it gives the image a basic look as using another outfit such as a dress or more colourful clothing would be more distracting. I feel like the body suite am wearing gives more shape to my self as a subject
Location: llanberis, llyn padarn
Artistic shots are hard to capture and most of the time there is only one perfect image from that shoot (it makes it even harder when your Model is not a very good swimmer) and this is my perfect image from my lake shoot.
Reason for this shoot. Actually I had no reason, just a odd idea I had and thought to my self this would look cool. I will come up with something eventually so at the moment it is just an explosion of my inspiration, as over the summer I have not managed to take any artistic shots, so this image is a perfect start to taking new and exciting images. (hopefully)
Graen magazine is a small magazine created to show that north Wales is not a hobbiton or a fairy Glen it’s to show people in North Wales are rock like people, the mountain people to show that Wales is a place for cool people.
I was very lucky to get the chance to work for this magazine where I got my own page in the first issue.
Working for this magazine had been the best bit of my photography career as I have been given VIP passes to festivals to shoot some images but that is not the only cool thing. I have also got to meet some other photographers such as the well known photographer in climbing Ray Wood. I also got to meet a well known suffer Jack Meeks who I interviewed for the magazine.
In my article about my self I wrote. “Jodie Evans is a 19 year old photographer from Harlech. She shoots outdoor sports, Climbing, Surfing, capturing body movements and artistic, sinister looking images. She is strange like that. She uses a Cannon 70D and photoshop CS6 to edit”
