It's been a while since my last post on the this project but there has been lots going on in the background since last year, a fair amount of content has been shot and you may have seen a preview or two if you follow my Instagram. Alot of thought has gone into the format it will take, the design and platform I'll be using, I always envisaged a blog or tumblr of some sort, it just seemed to be the way to go to build interest but tumblr has it's downsides and I didn't really want to see anything from the series being reblogged on borderline tumblr porn blogs, which quickly ruled that out! An integrated blog on my website was for a long time the way I was going but I didn't want the project to have the design and format of this blog and didn't want to change my design for my main portfolio to fit the project or vice versa. The interest in this has also reached further than I thought for a project that's been in the pipeline for this long, keeping the teasers going on social media seems to have caught the attention of models and photographers already following my work.
Those select models that have already been a part of this, and those yet to be, have all been very enthusiastic about it and keen to see it culminate in a book, exhibition, fine art prints etc. and it's had me thinking beyond what I first had in mind for Timeless. I figured if this thing was going to be ongoing indefinitely then maybe it needs to be a separate entity with a home away from my main portfolio, so that's what will be happening, Timeless will be a stand alone site rather than a blog tucked away in the corner, I'm sure there will be some overlap with some content becoming part of my portfolio but much of the content will be exclusive to the project site with some photographs becoming exclusive to a book or exhibition, after all why go to an exhibition or buy a book if you can see it all online!
Even though it's actually yet to launch, I look back on when the idea first came about and how it's just become part of my style for almost everything I shoot anyway, be it portrait, fashion and even commercial work at times but I'm looking forward to building this into something more where art meets fashion & beauty in a collaboration between muse and photographer, what is the plural to muse? I can have more than one, there's no rules around that, right??! I have a few so rules or not it's a done deal!
So next up is securing a domain name with timeless and timeless project already taken I need to get creative! Watch this space, it's nearly time for TIMELESS.
