welcome to The burton collective

The Burton Collective home of artist James Ryan


James Ryan is a brilliant tattoo artist based in leister at The Burton Collective. James got in touch with me to get some portraits of him and some of him tattooing for a future feature on himself and his work, so how could i turn this down. 

we did a few different setups in the shop to try and get the best for him the first 2 set ups were all based on him doing his craft which we were joined by his lovely wife who would be his canvas for the shoot



after he had wrapped up his latest work i set up for the portrait side of this shoot a chance to show  James off in his work space, i love photographing artists in there own space to show all there tools and ideas in one photo i love it.

we had plenty to work with as if you have ever been to The Burton collective its differently a awesome shop with lots of art work, ranging from pints, vintage items and taxidermy, which all added to the images. 

ill leave all there links at the bottom of the post
