Josh Fray Photography Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
I suppose anybody can just "take a photo". Not everybody however, can create a composition through a lens with a seconds notice. I'm an extremely discreet photographer, capturing uninterrupted natural moments.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
I always like to get as much information from the client as possible. Why they need the images, and what's most important for me to convey within the images I take.
What do you love most about your job?
Taking a persons photo is an extremely intimate thing. Sharing special moments with mere strangers is what keeps me doing what I do.
What inspired you to start your own business?
It was a natural progression upon graduating. Having worked at major magazines in New York and London, I felt it was time I ventured into my own thing.
Why should our clients choose you?
I'd say because you like my style of imagery. I use a camera called a Leica - renowned as optically the best photography camera in the world, image quality is impeccable. It's an entirely manual system which I've used for 3 years now, and have never looked back. I give my all to any job - however big or small.
