Photography & videography should be better.
You want more than flat, stock-like images, and commissioning a video should be more than an expensive, slow project where your end result is just another cloned corporate film. Whether hanging in a gallery or used for social media, photos & video tell a story; we want to work with you to tell yours.

Upstart Photography Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
I think that most people don't realise that the key to great photos is having a photographer who is really sociable and good with people; you're never going to get good pictures if you can't make someone smile! Cameras make everyone tense up, so as a photographer my first job is making people comfortable so we can create natural images...
From a technical standpoint, the key to any eye-catching photo is an in depth and working understanding of light. Knowing how different sources, angles, and even the position of the sun will come out on camera takes a long time to learn!
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
- What are you trying to communicate with these images?
- What style are you looking to capture (e.g. candid, natural photos or staged, posed shots)?
- How would you like the photos delivered (prints, digital files, album etc)?
- Any extra requests (dress code, lighting, video etc)?
What do you love most about your job?
It's fairly simple for me - I love working with people! Through photography I have covered a huge range of really interesting events, met and worked with really great people. Showing someone who is nervous of having a photo taken how great they look on camera and seeing their face transform; that's priceless.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Taking the next step and setting up as a business was a huge move, with risks and rewards. Knowing that I would be waking up every day to do something different, whether meeting prospective clients, shooting a fabulous corporate event, or editing photos from my favourite coffee shop - that was inspiration enough!
Why should our clients choose you?
If you're looking for a complete package, easy to work with photographer who can deliver stunning images the next day, someone who your guests will enjoy having around and works with total flexibility, look no further!
