EnA Photography Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
With people it's all about getting to know them, pre wedding or gig meet ups, understanding what the subjects want from the shoot, the styles they like and what they intend to use the shots for i.e. are they memories only, will they be printed and displayed, is it for music promo flyers and posters and so on.
With landscape and streetscape most places have been photographed a million times and so it's about trying to find a different look or angle, something to make people think 'Oh that's different, I've not seen that before'.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
First and foremost is understanding why they want the images and what they intend using them for, there is no point in even picking up the camera until you understand this. I have a lot of interesting ideas and angles but ultimately I need to understand the clients' wishes and needs before I can offer an input and make suggestions.
What do you love most about your job?
The thing I love most about being a professional photographer is the reaction when the images are presented to the clients, both as proofs and then the final edited images. To see the look on the bride and grooms face when they see I captured Grandad dancing with his five year old grandaughter, or Great Aunt Mildred getting her high heels stuck in the grass at the reception.
To see the company Directors bursting with pride at their glossy line of trucks gleaming in the sun in their compound. To see a rock band completely floored by the moody way their simple promo shots have been edited.
That's all very special, to think that I have done those things is pretty amazing :-)
What inspired you to start your own business?
A few years ago I was sent a decent camera as a loyalty gift by my accountancy company, I picked it up and played about with it and started taking it to gigs I was attending and my images started getting some very good reactions, I started getting asked to attend events and started being paid for my services. I took every bit of free training available, watched countless hundreds of tutorials and started developing my own style.
Now I simply love it, whether it's a wedding, a gig, a commercial shoot, or even if I am just shooting for my own pleasure.
Why should our clients choose you?
What I will be is 100% honest and realistic, I will ensure that I listen to exactly what you as a client wants from the shoot, I will give you sincere input and suggestions which I think will compliment your ideas and I will price accordingly. What you wont get from me is a choice of off the shelf pre priced photography packages. Every job is individually priced.
In short, a total bespoke service from a guy who cares very much about what he does.
