Portraits / Maggie Hambling

January 20th, 2010

This blog for me is a chance to show aspects of my work from a different perspective. I would like to introduce my portraits which you can see if you click on the following link. (http://www.louisquail.com ).

First up, Maggie Rambling:

I cant help have a fondness for the Maggie Rambling shot,posted partly because of the experience I had during the shoot . She was very direct which I found  quite refreshing; shouting orders as good as any major and insisting on holding her fake cigarette. I was in and out in a hour but it was still a privilege to photograph her in her studio.

UK Prom Night

January 19th, 2010

The Saturday Times commissioned this piece, the idea being that American-style Prom nights are arriving in Great Britain. Myself and the journalist Damien Whitworth traveled to three completely different nights across the country to see how UK schools are celebrating their graduation. These pictures tell the story. see Damien’s piece below

Latest news/Kabul Stories

January 19th, 2010

Most of the news coming out of Afghanistan is focused on the fighting, the deaths of soldiers, terrorism or impenetrable  political analysis. We seldom hear much about how the war has effected the ordinary Afghans or how they are coping and what they think. ‘Kabul Stories’ is a look via the medium of portraiture at the people of Kabul and an opportunity to personalise the people experiencing the war on Terror first hand.

It has been published several times most recently in Geo in the German edition and more recently the international edition available to buy right now in these countries: Croatia, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Finland, India, Brazil, Russia, Italy, Spain, Latvia and Lithuania. It was first published in The Guardian Weekend and soon after in  Politiken and US Marie Claire.

Hi There!

January 19th, 2010

This is me

first blog

January 19th, 2010

Hi , I’m a photographer specialising in portraits and features usually for magazines like the Sunday times, Saturday Times, Telegraph Mag, Guardian Weekend, as well as respected consumer magazines like Marie Claire. You can see more about me and who I work for on the profile page of my web site at www.louisquail.com . I am based in the Greater London area, with a work base in Camberwell, South East London. My residential address is in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire which makes it easy to work equally well in the region north west of London.

I will be using this blog to keep you updated with interesting projects and relevant news as it emerges, for example those of you living in these countries as I write this in January 2010:  Croatia, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Finland, India, Brazil, Russia, Italy, Spain, Latvia and Lithuania might want to check out my recent story from Kabul, Afghanistan in the international edition of GEO Magazine. It’s about the people as opposed to the fighting, but more of that in the blog.
