Chad Pickard and PaulMcLean – Photographers
Chad Pickard and Paul McLean are the new boys on the block! The 2 northern photgraphers are definitely Ones to watch for this year…
Having recently moved down to London from Leeds, the boys are rapidly turning around one of the most impressive work and client portfolio i have seen in a while.
Their work has it all… Romance, Darkness, Edge, and some of the most beautiful girls around.
Be ready to see them everywhere very soon…
Julien: We all have our heroes, people who have influenced our lives. Does anyone in particular inspire you?
Chad and Paul: Love almost anything by Edward Hopper, Hockney or Dali. Wong Kar-wai is an amazing director, in the mood for love is probably the best looking film I’ve seen.
As for photographers, it would have to be Glen Luchford and Steven Klein, his new W shoot with Bruce is ridiculously good.
J: How would you describe your style of photography?
C&P: It’s definitely still evolving, but I guess it just comes from what we see and what we like.
J: You’ve recently moved to London and people are already talking about you everywhere. how does it feel?
C&P: Didn’t really notice they were to be honest, we’ve just been shooting as much as possible. If people talk about us that’s brilliant, it’s nice to know that we are getting noticed.
J: What has been your best London experience so far?
C&P: The natural history museum was amazing! (J: geeks!)
J: What is the ultimate dream for you?
C&P: Italian Vogue would be nice… But if people recognised and appreciated our work that would be enough.
