Photographer Jef Harris brings his unique artistic style to the world of fashion photography. A music video producer, artist, as well as professional photographer, Jef’s portfolio is full of fresh and unpredictable imagery. Love the angles, use of light, and original compositions of Jef’s photography!
Here’s a brief bio…“. A 39 year old self taught artist of many many styles. I started out doing photography when I was young as well as painting watercolor. My first camera was a polariod instant camera. And my first drawing was of wolverine based on a drawing of Frank Miller. At 18 I got more deeply into the scene after seeing the band Skinny Puppy. After that is was all downhill. Over the last 7-10 years I’ve taken a more professional approach to my art, in painting and photography by incorporating my unique style and sticking to what I would like to see. I’m also deeply into the music scene, having made about a dozen low budget music videos, (you can see them all on my site), as well as a few movies. So among art I’ve thrown producing into the mix. And I must say, I’m having the time of my life. A short word about my work. As you maybe able to tell from my photos, when I work with a model who I get along with, I tend to stay with that model for long periods producing some of my best works. For they cease to be a model and become a partner.”
While this is neither a new or original idea, this is my attempt to produce 365 photos worthy of showing the rest of the world. From April 1, 2008, I am posting a new picture every day. (Even weekends and holidays. Art knows no bounds.)
Some of the pictures will be from my archive of images (some even going back to scans from negatives), but I am going to try to produce new pictures as much over the next year as possible. The goal is to create new things, not just turn this into a self-selected “best of”. I guarantee some images will be better than others.
I’m a transplanted Canadian now living in Sweden who has been doing photography in one way or another for more years than I care to think about. While past work has included photographic assignments — I’ve been lucky to be paid to photograph deserts on three continents — photography is definitely a passion and hobby rather than a living.
When not behind the camera, I do web and graphic design and creative direction.
I live in Hunnebostrand, a small fishing village on the west coast of Sweden with my wife Eva and daughter Ella, both of whom you’ll see if you look around the pictures.
