Movies sets are collaborative in nature. A stills photographer has to understand when “not to take a picture” and to accept that her/his presence on set will always be the least important. Stills Photography is an intensive training on the virtues of being humble by maintaining a low profile.
A movie set quickly becomes a temporary home and the members of the crew, a temporary family. It gives a sense of belonging and often ends at the wrong time, when all have started to really appreciate each other’s presence. Working within a team is one of my main incentives in pursuing that kind of work.
This a sample set of images taken between 2006 and 2012 in three different sets. A moving world, captured by Standing Still.
