Stuart McConaghy is a photographer.
A photographer of women.
I actually stole this bit from Helmut Newton’s bio movie Frames From The Edge. The movie opens with the statement “Helmut Newton is a photographer. A photographer of women.” I liked it so much I thought “Why didn’t I come up with that?” The answer was very clear: When that movie came out I was in my mid-teens, and obsessed with becoming a rock drummer! Which I did, but that’s a different story. Now I can proudly say that the headline rings true: Stuart McConaghy is a photographer of women.
Primarily, I photograph women. And this takes on many forms, my fashion clients have different needs than my private clients, but for each client I have the same goal: To photograph women who look absolutely amazingly gorgeous.
I have been moving towards a style that is fun-filled, and slightly naughty in my photographs, this is because of the influence Ellen von Unwerth’s work has on my. I love the cheeky playfulness and exuberant lust for life in her photos! And that leads me directly to becoming a Boudoir photographer.
