A strong believer in open communication between himself, his subjects and clients, this aspect remains core to the quality and success of all Ignus’ work. As a strong conceptual thinker he has embraced digital technology but still enjoys the opportunity to work on various formats and different stock, depending on the requirements of each project and while his technical knowledge, innovative ideas and professionalism are what enable him to bring any project to life for his clients, it is his experience that gives him the added advantage whether it is in studio or on location, casting artists or shooting famous celebrities.It’s been said that I’m “fanatical” about lighting and “pedantic” about the equipment I use on my shoots.
