More About the Author

Damien learned his trade as a cameraman and lighting director during 14 years at the BBC, working on programmes such as the Clothes Show, Top of the Pops and Casualty. Days off from filming were often spent taking photographs for a variety of top name clients including Peugeot, Motorola, and Adidas.

Anyone who has met Damien can't fail to be inspired and motivated by his enthusiasm for his second career. So much so that once you get him started on a subject it's hard to shut him up...

Fifteen years on, Damien has become one of the foremost trainers of photography and entrepreneurial business strategies in our industry. A published writer and regular columnist, Damien has travelled the globe sharing his knowledge and expertise.

"Photography fascinates me" declares Damien. "Creating instant pictures using a technically intricate process is electrifying, and if done well the pictures can have great value too. Making pictures is something I've enjoyed throughout my life, and if I could paint quickly I'd probably be doing that instead. Much of my photography is inspired by a burning enthusiasm within me" explains Damien. "Picking up a camera gives me such a rush that I'm instantly driven to create pictures."


Product Description

The book - an overview 'Chloe Jasmine Whichello' is Damien Lovegrove's first art photography book, containing 160 pages of photography and poetry. A lavish hardback volume with blind embossed french-fold dust jacket and spot varnishing on all interior images, Chloe-Jasmine Whichello is a book that breaks new boundaries. It's a culmination of four and a half months of shooting and writing. The creative journey - words by Damien Lovegrove Chloe and I set out on each shoot to create a series of photographs with a depth of emotion and a rapport that lingers. We worked through the tears and laughter to capture these pictures full of personality and beauty. I sculpted the light and together we created the moments that have been captured here forever. When you look into Chloe's eyes in these pictures you can see into her soul. This really is a photographers book I suppose. Not one with f/ numbers and focal lengths, it's on another level entirely. It's about communication between Chloe-Jasmine and I, It's also about art, design and composition. Many well established theories of good practice are challenged in this book. It's a body of work that is eloquent and self supporting. Despite the vast array of photographic techniques employed to create these pictures, the book has a rhythm. There is a core continuity and a narrative that is bourn out in Chloe's poetry. Some would say it's a naive work with substance.

A beautiful book of photography and words.

Having seen some the images of Chloe on Damien's blog I couldn't wait to receive the book.

The book is a wonderful collection of images and words. I've looked through it a number of times already and my favourite image keeps changing as well as my favourite line or poem.

If you're a photographer it's a great source for reference (not technique or f stops!!) and if you're looking for a treat for yourself or as a gift you won't be disappointed.

There are that many books available to photographers that it's rare for something really different to come along. But something has. Chloe Jasmine Whichello by Damien Lovegrove (let's just call it CJW for now) is a triumph in three parts...

Firstly, it's a very fine item to have on show; the quality of the book, from the binding to the print, is first-rate and the images are an attractive tour de force, showcasing not just the masterful technique of a photographer at the top of his game but also wit and warmth.

Secondly, it will become an invaluable reference to photographers - professional and enthusiasts alike - who are looking for inspiration, either for day to day portrait ideas or to create a really special work for a valued client. The use of lighting, be it available light, flash or continuous, creates looks from classic Hollywood, through modern mixed-light and 'relaxed Sunday morning' right through to epic set pieces. All the while, CJW herself inhabits the environment in a way that inspires us to set the scene then forget about the lights and create a story.

And that's what the third part is about. CJW (the book, this time) isn't about f-stops and ISO settings; it's about taking the next step on and adding another dimension to our basic skills. Recognising that photographing people is about, well, people. CJW shows what can be done when you can light up your work with enthusiasm and communication and it's this honest, unselfconscious offering which sets the book apart and makes it a must for anyone serious about making their portrait work fun, expressive and desirable.

If you love quality photographs, this book is for you. If you love beautiful women, this is for you. If you love pukka photobooks, this is for you. If you love all of the above, found all in one book, this is for you!

There are few photobooks that take one person as the photographic subject throughout, and even a couple of well-known examples that I can think of - Mario Testino's portayal of Princess Diana, David Bailey's portrayal of his wife - don't achieve it in quite so much depth as this book from Damien Lovegrove achieves its portayal of Chloe Jasmine Wichello, which it does to as good a standard, if not better, than the two famous names.

There's a consistently beautiful quality in each photograph, yet a great deal of breadth and depth across the book - amazing, considering they were all taken in the same year. Poems written by the model are also included against some of the plates, and these afford even more intimacy. You feel like you're sitting next to this wonderful and beautiful girl.

Damien's descriptions of his times with Chloe also form an entertaining and incisively-written introduction to the person coming to us via his lens, though he also adds his own couple of attempts at poetry, which are no match for Chloe's poems. A punchy writer as well as a top-notch photographer, the fact that he was drawn in by Chloe to also attempt a poem somehow adds to this portrayal of her.

It's the icing on the cake that this book is printed beautifully on thick paper and given a quality binding.

Having photographed Chloe on one of Damien's workshops, I'm not sure it's possible for me to give an unbiased review.

However, this is only because I appreciate her ability to, with seeming effortlessness, reach out from the page to grab and hold your attention. These images truly convey a thorough and touching evocation of her beauty wrapped in the light and shadow of a photographer who really knows his craft.

From her wistful gaze to her supernova of a smile, every page captures an aspect of her personality, and you reach the end of the book feeling as if you have just had a conversation with her which immeasurably brightened your day.
