Photographer Shane Woodward takes inspiration for his unusual photographic stylings from his love of old movies. The Texas-born photographer got his start just five years ago after his sister gave him a camera as a gift. Woodward has struck out to make his mark and moved from Texas to Paris, where his photography is developing a strong following.
Woodward has opened up his mind as well as his lens to new creative outlets, embracing filmmaking and acting. These striking photos will remind you of the classic cinema stylings where the medium of photography manipulates and enhances the beauty of the subject.
Shane Woodward says of his inspiration, "Beauty, in its conventional and unconventional sense, can always draw me in and get the juices flowing. But my ideas are heavily influenced by things the day brings to my plate, atypical people, things that make me laugh and also by cinema."
