Robyn Lyndon Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
So many 'secrets' apply to different aspects of photography but to me, it has to be a balance of two main factors. 1. the light and 2. the moment.
The Light: When a subject, or the subject, is perfectly light, whether you're half way up a mountain capturing a breathe-taking landscape, or in a studio capturing a product or capturing precious moments at a wedding - having the right lighting conditions (either natural or artificial) really does separate your images from being good to great.
The Moment - Sometimes things just happen! But from experience, you have to be prepared. My camera never leaves my side and while working it never leaves my hand! Those precious moments, expressions or instances are over in a flash! Observation and attention to detail is key!
(and if I can have a 3rd, slightly following on from point 2 - it has to be the preparation/planning. A cheesy saying but a true one - 'if you fail to plan, plan to fail!)
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
The list is on going and is unique to every customer. However, if I could ask only ONE, it would be
- What message would you like each image to portray?
Please drop me a message and I will be more than happy to discuss and offer my advise where needed :)
What do you love most about your job?
Personally - The diversity, the locations I have the privilege to visit and the people I meet.
Professionally - Having self pride in knowing the customer is happy.
What inspired you to start your own business?
This one's a little long, so if you're somehow interested, get comfy, make a brew and read on... :)
I guess it wasn't so much in what 'inspired me to start my own business' as that was a natural progression. But what inspired me to study at university to become a photographer goes all the way back to when I was a boy (now 30, but I consider myself a young man - just).
Growing up I spent a lot of fun times at my Grandparents house, like most young children. However, this one day at my Grandads house I will remember forever as it is, I guess, what influenced me to become a photographer...
During the 2nd World War my Grandad served in the British Army as a Marine and was involved in the D-Day landings. This one particular day while playing at his house I came across an old tin box which contained dozens of tiny still images taken from an old format camera. These images, I were later to find out, were taken of the remainder of the war. My grandad, after invading the beaches, in France, found the camera which once belonged to a German reporter who must have left it behind in hast!
The images documented his journey from the beaches of France all the way up into Belgium. They ranged from portraiture of people he met, architecture and landscapes passed along the way. I was absolutely fascinated with them and I was forever holding the stills up to the light whenever I visited. This experience, and a few others I won't bore you with, combined with my dad being rewarded with a 20 Year Service SLR Camera, which I never put down at family parties, occasions or holidays, certainly peaked my interest and I knew I wanted to be a photographer!
It wasn't then until I was in my early twenties I had the stills blown up to see them in all their glory, for which I based my final major university project on and it helped me to achieve my BA (Hons) Degree in Digital Media. I guess it all came full circle.
Why should our clients choose you?
I like to think I am very approachable, thorough, I take a great pride in what I do and I can be relied upon to capture the perfect image(s) for the client.
