About Vagabond Images

WHAT VAGABOND IMAGES IS

My name is Mike Dodson - my father taught me photography when he gave me his 1968 Nikkormat FS, and I started using and abusing film until digital changed my game, when I moved to Canon. I have a love of music, mischief, wide open spaces and hidden corners, and these all inform and influence my approach. 


My work has been described - among other things - as "dirty", "dark", "off-beat" and "unique". It rarely fits the rules, nor any piece particularly into photographic essays. Each image stands on it’s own merit, as opposed to necessarily being a study in technique or of subject.


One of my favourite bands is New Model Army, among whose work is a song called Vagabonds. If you don’t like it, you are wrong.


WHAT VAGABOND IMAGES WILL COST YOU

I charge £45 per hour to shoot, and £18 to edit. Editing depends on the subject and the shoot, but is generally about 1/3 of the shooting time. 


Prints are priced individually, and I can organise framing and postage.


I'm flexible and friendly, so do get in touch to discuss.
