“Lighting Can Change Everything” – Photographer Vadym Yatsun Discusses Elevating Imagery With Experimental Lighting

How accidentally moving to London and a chance encounter with the Trevor Sorbie team accelerated his career.

I became a photographer by accident; I started my career as a musician. I needed photos for my work but struggled to get a good photographer, so I started doing photography, and then it just took off for me. That was more than 10 years ago now! In Ukraine we didn’t have any photography schools, so I was trying to find information on the internet, and I had to just analyse all the shoots I saw; how the lighting could work, where the lights were placed, how they could be directed – and that’s how I developed a good relationship with lighting.  

I’m always prepped, but slight differences on set might change everything quite significantly. This is what I love about the creative process – it starts by working on the presentation, with the mood board, storyboard, all the looks, hairstyles, makeup and so on. Everything is carefully planned and I’m happy with how it changes on a set. The model will bring their own energy, and everything may change, but this is the magic that fascinates me.

I like complex stuff. The more complicated it is, the more interesting it becomes. I think lighting is one of the most complicated parts of photography. I’m a control freak and shooting with daylight is something that you cannot control. It just drives me nuts, which is why lighting is a good thing! 

“I like challenges, I find this work challenging and that’s what brings something special to my life.”

Since working in the hair industry, there have been lots of learning experiences. I believe that all photographers and people on set should know almost everything about their colleagues and the specifics of their work. As soon as I got into the industry, I started communicating with my colleagues, hairstylists, and makeup artists. I learned everything about their processeswhich hairstyle should be the first, what would be the next, all and all the processes working with wigs. Now I love wigs most of all, because they make everything flexible

Getting into the UK hairdressing scene was an interesting development, as I had worked with lots of hair brands and hair magazines in Ukraine. I love hair because it creates shapes – it can save simple looks or fashion shoots! I moved to London two years ago by accident. I wasn’t supposed to move here, but I started looking for different people to collaborate with, to get a job, and any connections, and then the Trevor Sorbie team found me. I followed someone from the team, and then they followed me, which led to being invited to shoot their new collection. And thats how things started in London!

My first career highlight was this cover story for Schon! magazine with Indira Varma. She was in Game of Thrones and this was the first magazine shoot with a big budget, big sets and big brands. It was really lovely to have the trust of quite an important magazine. 
This shoot for Paper magazine was quite cool. The last couple of years changed my life completely, and they also changed my approach completely.

This was another image for Schon! magazine, with hair by Paul Donovan. This was the second shoot and I love collaborating with this magazine because they trust me a lot. It’s something that rarely happens, but they just trust me 100 per cent so I can experiment. We were using layers of colour filters in front of the lens, changing and distorting the image; sometimes my work is not about lighting, its about the effect that we can give, about the layers and layers that can be placed in front of the lens. This sometimes brings unexpected results, which is also cool, and it is also part of the challenge because you never know what will happen. Its a shoot I love, because that was the first experiment with this layering of colour filters and it was then I decided it will be part of my work and have my personal, distinctive, recognisable style.

This was an amazing collaboration with one of my favourite makeup artists, Sophia Sinot, she’s worked with a lot of big talents and so that was a collaboration for Elle Ukraine, with hair by Trevor Sorbie’s Tizi Dima. I love this shoot because there was a lot of playing and experimenting with flowers and working with lots of effects, such as reflecting from different surfaces. We had this amazing piece of silver film that was giving a water-like effect with the light reflecting off.

This image, with Ross Kwan on hair, we had lots of stuff that the set designer brought, and then he found this piece of rubbish downstairs and it reminded me of the shape of an eye, so he wrapped it in a piece of cloth, and that how it became the shape you see in the background. We placed it behind the model, and it worked perfectly with all the lighting, and changing the gradients, and it was cool. 

Lighting is something that always goes with me, it’s something that can change every set – you don’t need anything sophisticated, just the white cove, and lots and lots of lights.

Who Took Home The 2024 Ireland L’Oréal Colour Trophy?

Salon owners, stylists and creative colourists gathered in Dublin to compete for the top spot. Here’s who scooped first place on the night…

LCT DUBLIN 2024<br />

New Hair Order, Mark Byrne and Lisa May

The L’Oréal Colour Trophy Ireland Grand Final hit the stage at the Dublin Royal Convention Centre and crowned New Hair Order as the 2024 winner – owner and colourist Mark Byrne and stylist Lisa May lifted the trophy for their multi-tonal take on a copper crop. 

There was an electric atmosphere in the room as salon owners, stylists and creative colourists gathered to compete for the big prize. Zeba Hairdressing’s Mark Sherwood and Augusto Miranda took second place, with Graham Santeliz Molloy and James Coleman of Brown Sugar claiming the final spot in the top three.

Jake Murphy, creative colourist and apprentice at Zeba Hairdressing took home the STAR Award for his subtle striped look. Judges tasked to make the difficult decision on the night were Darren Ambrose, Andrew Mulvenna, Alan Edwards, Nathan Walker and Marcello Moccia.

Also on the night, Lauren McNeela of Stripe Colour Studio was named L’Oréal Colour Trophy Moving Image winner. The final winners to be revealed were Alex Doherty, Brandon Marchant, Elsie MacDonald, Francesca Bay, Isla McKelvie who scooped the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Future Talent Award. They will go on to have a mentorship day at the L’Oréal International Academy. 

Two dynamic hair shows thrilled the Dublin crowd. The first, created by Jason Hall Hairdressing’s Jason Hall and Strictly Xtended’s Abigail Butler, was an energetic combination of pop culture references. Mash Up saw striking silhouettes and elaborate fashion pieces, designed by Colin Horgan, that elevated the energy over the top of a mash-up mixtape playlist of trending tunes. Jason and Abigail were supported by young Irish talents, Peter Mark College’s Daryl Behan, Georgia Haverty, Kelly Byrne and Rebecca Robinson, Peter Mark’s Sadhbh Clifford, Hillary’s Sian Lloyd and Yolanda Dunne from Wildflower.

The truly mesmerising performance was choreographed by Gareth Walker and featured statement headpieces with bold fashion styling and design by Adam Reed.
