Interview with Ian Francis

Interviews

27 January 2017

Posted by Sally Hart

Hi Ian! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I'm self taught with no qualifications to speak off. I joined Rolls Royce camera club in late 1970's, but didn't stay long as it wasn't for me. Now a part time photographer, full time gardener. I love to shoot events, street, festivals and protests.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AThe weirdest and most dangerous situations I've been in is being threatened with violence when out photographing protests. I just keep calm and keep pressing the shutter button.

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AI use a Nikon D810 with just two lenses most of the time, a 35mm F2 and a 50mm F1.8 as well as two tripods. A light one for around town, and a heavier one for landscapes.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

ABe ready and have the camera close to your eye while working, batteries charged, the right settings, and reading the situations around you. A good picture happens in a split second, and average one happens the moment after.

'Like other photographers I have quite a few favourites, so i'm going with one of my latest pictures. Frack free protest in Sherwood Forest. When mixing with the crowd of protes... Read more

'Like other photographers I have quite a few favourites, so i'm going with one of my latest pictures. Frack free protest in Sherwood Forest. When mixing with the crowd of protesters looking for individual shots of people this scene opened up in front of me, her eyes made contact with me as the crowd opened up. I pressed the shutter button and captured the image. The picture looked posed but it was just a quick reaction.' Read less

'Summer bank holiday, East coast seaside town of Skegness. Soon as I saw the couple sunbathing in their disability scooters on the seafront I knew I had to get this shot. I asked them if I could take their picture and they agreed. I took the photo and thanked them. The picture summed up modern day seaside towns for me.' Read less

'Chesterfield market on any Thursday is a great place for street photography. This photo was taken on a hot summers day and was all about the timing. Waiting for the minion balloon to move into frame and hoping the people didn't spot me pointing the camera in their direction. Luck was on my side that day and everything fell into place.' Read less

'Been documenting Leicester city football fans on their run up to winning the premier league title. Also now had the chance to capture European football fans when they visited Leicester. Porto fans where in high spirits ahead of the match with singing, chanting, drinking and smoke bombs being ignited. It was a case of just getting amongst them and looking for good photo opportunities.' Read less

'Nottingham Riviera arrives on the old market square every summer. Spotted a woman on the beach and asked her if she would pose for the picture, she said yes and it was just a matter of framing the shot and getting her to smile. Strange thing is I now see this woman often around the city and have become friends.' Read less
