Colin Hawkins has worked directly with clients and advertising and design agencies for over 30 years. He draws from his Fine Art education which gave him a deep understanding of the principles of composition, concept, colour & form.
Colin’s expertise is grounded in many years of industry experience combined with continuous personal practice and experimentation with various techniques and processes. Through this, he has learnt to appreciate the subtleties and intricacies of lighting and composition. He has always enjoyed problem-solving, making sets and backgrounds, and creating or adapting gadgets and equipment to help achieve a certain effect. His relaxed style allows him to be creative and resourceful. Colin’s approach is more about “Getting it right in camera” to begin with, rather than relying on photoshop in post-production.
