Jose Villa: The reluctant rockstar
Jose Villa is often referred to as one of the 'rockstars' of wedding photography. It's not a title that sits comfortably with him though. He sees himself as a fairly normal guy who wants to create beautiful images. But there is no getting away from the fact that his images are adored by so many people around the world, and his style has become one of the most replicated. So how does he feel about all this attention and the pressure that comes with it?

James & Jo Melia: Talking through photography #22
It’s been said that a picture paints a thousand words. For James Melia that is most certainly the case. For him, the images he produces are more than words, they’re his voice. Why waste your time trying to come up with erudite speeches when your photos say all they need to say. James Melia’s images say more than enough which means that he doesn’t have to. He was pretty nervous about this interview for PhotoTypes which is why I’m so grateful for him making the effort to do it, along with his wife, and shooting partner Jo.
