Giles Clement is a Nashville based photographer who can often be found traveling the country with his pup Zeiss and a van full of cameras, lights and ideas. His work has been featured in Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and W Magazine. For four consecutive years he’s had a studio at Newport Folk Festival and has captured portraits of Elvis Costello, Questlove, Fiona Apple, Kris Kristofferson, and Roger Waters. In the US, he has done events with a variety of leading brands including Squarespace, Billy Reid, Ball & Buck, Black Diamond, and Third Man Records.
In the tradition of artists and tradesmen of generations past, portrait photographer Giles Clement has taken his studio on the road. Clement uses the tintype method of photography to create unique silver images on sheets of black metal. Tintyping was popular in the late 1800’s, but was quickly abandoned as less difficult and more reliable methods of portraiture were invented. Clement’s camera equipment is antique – some of it more than 160 years old. In harmony with old methods and equipment, he uses modern lighting and technologies to capture the faces, and often the souls, of a new generation of artists, inventors and pioneers.
