A follow up to my recent multiple exposure series, such as We Are Nature Vol. I and Vol. II. As in my previous work I’ve double and triple exposed (combined) man and nature in-camera, this time by using a Nikon D800E. Afterwards I’ve imported my RAW-files (yes, you can shoot multiple exposures in RAW-format) to Lightroom to adjust contrast, tones, colors and in some cases adding a small amount of dodging and burning.

    Your work is incredible! Just out of curiosity, how much do you have to plan out each shot? And how many versions of each shot will you typically take in order to come up with a single one that you’re satisfied with?

      That’s a very good question Jazmin. It depends a lot, in some cases I’ve managed to capture a shot that I’m satisfied with within just one or two tries. One time in Germany when I shot for a client it took me almost a whole day without the result I was looking for. Then the morning after I easily managed to capture three images to be satisfied with within just 40mins. Rare example thought.

      The triple exposures between hands, nature and faces are without a doubt the hardest ones to do. 15 bad tries are actually 45 images that’s all required different settings and much of your concentration. I don’t enjoy doing those.

      Waiting for the right weather or searching for a good place to shoot at can be much more frustrating than the shoot itself.

    Every time I see your work I am in awe. Every shot is beautiful with your first image of this series being my favorite.

    I have been trying to experiment with this process myself but I can not seem to grasp it. I have a D600 and whenever I try this I get two photos taken one immediately after the other. Being a beginner photographer I was wondering if you have any tips. Any drop of knowledge you can spare would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you Casandra. Sure, but it depends on where you’re located since I only do “real” multiple exposures – no photoshop overlays.

      Thank you Dilay,

      I’d love to help you, but if you aren’t able to do it in camera it isn’t any longer my expertise. Wish you luck.

    I absolutely love your photographs!
    I’m doing my final exam in A Level Art, and I’m studying multiple images. Your work really intrigues me and I was considering doing a piece similar.

    I was wondering if you could help me out and tell me how you achieve these images and why you do them? I’m interested in the thought process behind them and how you’d like them to be recieved?

    I am studying art and design and my current project lead a fellow student to point me in the direction of your work as they could see similarities in what i’m aiming to achieve.

    Your work is fantastic and would really appreciate any advice you can give me on the process of your work and how you achieve your photographs? I am very interested in multiple exposures and have just begun experimenting in this area!

    Your work is absolutely amazing! I’m 14 and in my ELA class we are doing a literacy project. One of the categories is visual media and how it expresses. I hope you don’t mind, if i use you as an example of artistic expression? Your ‘We Are Nature’ project is incredible and i think it captures the human and nature connection very well.

    I am an A-level photography student in my second year and I am using your work as a case study on inspiration. It would be helpful if you could give me some information about your work and tips on recreating these photographs. Thank you.

    I am a GCSE photography student and I am hoping to re-create your beautiful images using Photoshop, I would really appreciate it if you gave me some tips on how to recreate this as I have tried many things and failed, because layering does not give the same effect and clear background as yours does.
    Many thanks

    Hello Chris.
    I love your double exposures, you have inspired me to learn more about your work. I spend a lot of my time experimenting with double exposures. I shoot with a small Olympus pen, It’s been a year now since I found out it has a multiple exposure feature. I would love to show you some of my double exposures. They are not the best but it would mean a whole lot to me if you see them.

    Thank you, and I wish you a great weekend.

    I’m doing a project at school on double exposure and you’re work has been one of my main inspirations. I am just wondering if you could tell me what your main influences are and how I could improve my images to be as professional as your own.
    Thankyou for your time:)

    Hello Christoffer!

    I’m a second year a level student and I have fallen in love with your double exposure photographs! For my new project I’m looking at the beauty of nature and how it shapes us as individuals and your work has inspired me to do something similar to this.
    I was wondering if it would be possible for you to give me some information on why you chose to photograph the bodies of work “We are nature” and what were your inspirations, thoughts and what you were trying to show for this work please, as I would like to do a double A3 page spread on you and your work :)

    Thank you for your time!

    Shannon Phillips :)

    You’re working is devastatingly beautiful! Completely captivated by the haunting aspect of Man & Nature. Knowing that these are all created in-camera truly adds to the magic which this images are. It’s like a visual song…
