Photographer of the Week: Paul Stevenson

Paul Stevenson of Darkstar Imaging is based in Coleraine in Northern Ireland, though he also shoots in the west of Scotland. He does all the usual duties of a professional photographer: weddings, portraits, corporate events and model portfolios. But Darkstar is the branch of his firm that deals with the ‘alternative’, creative, noncommercial side of his work, so it’s a portfolio of edgy, gothic imagery set in landscapes that are sometimes ancient, sometimes modern and usually desolately lonely:

His pictures are often hauntingly beautiful.

The shoot that particularly interests us took place on September 10, 2013, and featured Claire McAllister, otherwise known as Madam Xilda…
