Beautiful Images & objects that inspire my photo-shoots.

I intend to start to upload images, photos, paintings and other objects that inspire my photography and art work. 
I love this elegant portrait of Sir Philip Sassoon by John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) Im using this impressive painting to inspire a series of shots Im working on at the moment. As I continue to work with black backgrounds and minimum lighting effects that just pick out the images crucial details. To create very strong imposing shots.
