The most difficult part of the project was the video and sound editing, but even though it was traumatic at times I now have a new set of skills even though they may fall a little short of Hollywood standards. The aim of the video was not only to bring the project full circle, but to provide inspiration to other photographers who may be considering this most rewarding form of art.
As well as the fine art prints and video, an ebook for iPad/iPhone, PDF book and special edition 7"x5" photosets have been produced. All these products are available from www.tomleephoto.co.uk or by contacting Tom direct - 0151 336 8216.

The beauty of fantasy portraiture is that it is not real and the end result doesn't have to be justified to anyone. What is portrayed is exactly what is intended in the eye of the artist. So even if you can't understand the story or see the message in the images, I don't mind.
