Phillips Photography Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
The secret to taking great photographs of people is to create a relationship with them. I spend extra time playing with children at the beginning of each session so that they trust me and build a report. Once a relationship is built and trust is established, it's much easier to get "real" smiles and genuine expressions. Our customers regularly tell us how genuine and unforced their smiles are. Posing is also an important part. A pose must look natural, but yet there are aesthetic rules that must be followed, but I can't give away all of my secrets! :)
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
Many clients want to know what to wear for a portrait session. I like consistency in a family. For example, I love it when a family wears denim and white. I've also had clients where the men where a certain color and the women wear a complimentary color, or the parents wear a certain color and the children wear a complimentary color. As long as there's a rhyme or reason, it looks nice. Avoid busy patterns. Aloha print is nice, but in an outside beach environment it can get busy and not stand out as much as a solid or simple pattern.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting new people and making them smile. Especially when they see how great their photos come out. The best compliment that I can receive is when a bride gets emotional when viewing her images. That means that I've captured the emotion and the special moments during that day.
What inspired you to start your own business?
My passion for photography and people. We have been doing this long enough now that we see our clients all over town. We have a lot of repeat clients so sometimes we'll photograph a High School Senior portrait and then later photograph their wedding. It's a great honor to establish those relationships!
Why should our clients choose you?
We have a great deal of experience in photography. We started out in film which has helped us tremendously in the digital age. We have a love for people and capturing the true essence of their personality in an image. We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
