Shane Lynam. Photographer. Ireland.

Shane Lynam & Tristan Hutchinson

Some background to the portrait swap I did with Tristan Hutchinson.

theswapproject:

Two photographers from Dublin are taking part in today’s ‘The Swap’ by the name of Shane Lynam and Tristan Hutchinson http://theswap.info/slth.html.

Shane wrote about his experience “I meet Tris fairly regularly here in Dublin to talk photography. Photographers spend a lot of time working alone and often overlook the benefits of discussing ideas with fellow practitioners.

Shooting Tris was a lot harder than expected. Knowing him before hand meant that it was a lot less formal than what i’m used to during portrait shoots . As a result, there was less pressure to deliver and there were a good few dubious experimental shots. Tris doesn’t enjoy being photographed , so it was a challenge to convince him to let his guard down. 

I was  interested to see how Tris works and how different his approach is to mine. I really like how his portrait of me came out.”

Tristan wrote “I met Shane initially via tumblr, as most of my photography contacts have been, but it was refreshing to meet this ex-pat upon his return to Ireland. We bonded over Guinness, exhibition openings and various rants, and I’m excited to see his really strong work develop over the 12 months.

As Shane will vouch for, I’m not an easy sitter - I’m not totally averse to being shot, but it felt kinda strange when the brief was a photographer shooting another photographer. 

I like Shane’s style of shooting portraits though - he’s direct yet friendly, and knows what he wants whilst being open to experimenting. 

My shoot with Shane was kinda open too - he was in the midst of training for a marathon and I wanted to capture him outside of his practice - we went to a beach near to where he lives and rolled of a bunch of shots for a few hours. Shane’s a courteous sitter!”
