Two talented young photographers who captured the construction of the St Edmund’s wolf sculpture through a unique time lapse video are looking to develop their skills and take on other work.
Armed with four cameras, friends Ed Joynson and Alex Scott, both 18, spent three days at Ben Loughrill’s workshop and snapped at least 1,000 images from each perspective of the development of the symbolic figure - now on Southgate Green roundabout.
They condensed the footage into three minutes to create the video and hope to take on other photography jobs on the back of it. Melanie Lesser, co-ordinator of Bury in Bloom, which commissioned the sculpture and the video, said: “I was stunned (by the time lapse) and thought it was so professional.” She is due to hire them again.
The pair, who have their own websites, describe their photography work as ‘more of a hobby’. They focus on all areas of photography but have a keen interest in time lapse.
Mr Joynson said: “It shows something in a different way - you can take something that takes several days and cut it into a couple of minutes.”
