In the past year i have had two gallery showings of my infrared photography (images and more information about IR photography can be seen here). But a few images i have produced are a bit more unique. When travelling to Disney Paris i had the idea of taken my modified IR camera to see what i could capture at the resort. Staying in the Sequoia Lodge hotel gave me perfect views of the lake, this resorted on some beautiful morning and evening shots.
With such a diverse setting IR photography became more of a challenge than an enjoyment here. What i struggled with was the lack of natural foliage in the Studios and Discoveryland. With Discoveryland having such unique Jules Verne-esque design about it, under IR light just gave it a cold homeless feel to the Victorian red’s metal and rivets. In contrast thou the areas of Fantasyland, Adventureland and Fronteirland were ideal for the camera to react. What was striking is the image of The Swiss Family Treehouse, for having an artificial tree completely blackout the surrounding white foliage.
I would love to have the chance to go on a photo trip to a Disney Resort with my full arsenal of equipment and be allowed to photograph for them in the unique style i bring to my work.
