Captured by Kimberley Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
A mixture of experience, technical know-how and creativity. It is also depends on the subject, for instance, with babies I find that a good game of peek-a-boo can work wonders, whereas with couples I tend to get to know them a little bit so that they are natural and relaxed.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
For all shoots, I like to find out about the individual's, couple's or family's favourite images, either using images they have gathered, Pinterest, or by going through my portfolio, to see what sort of images they are drawn to and why. I then work on bringing the elements we have identified into the shoot. I also find out practicalities such as what to wear, whether they've thought about where an image might be going - i.e. on a wall, as a present, or in an album. With weddings specifically I make a note of all the important images so that we can make sure they are incorporated into the day.
What do you love most about your job?
Honestly, the moment when a client sees their images for the first time, it can sometimes be quite emotional seeing images of you and your loved ones, and it's a satisfying feeling and real feel-good moment, knowing that I have captured something special.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I started working as a photographer at the age of 19 and I haven't stopped. I worked in a studio for 3 years and then I worked as a specialist portrait photographer on luxury cruise liners around Europe and the Caribbean for 2 years, so when I returned in 2012 it just seemed like the next step to go freelance, I set up Captured by Kimberley in late 2012 and have been happily capturing memories ever since.
Why should our clients choose you?
I shoot part time, as I was inspired by my time abroad to learn a language (or two), so I'm currently studying for a degree in French and Spanish, which means I only shoot a few weddings each year, I can keep prices reasonable, I have the experience to deliver high quality photography, and have the time and expertise to work-on and deliver your finished digital images swiftly, so that in no time at all you can be re-living your day again.
