How long does a Photography session last?

There are different factors that dictate how long a photography session can last but most photoshoots last from 30 minutes up to two hours.

Where might the Photography session take place?

The photographs may be taken inside a studio or outside depending on the type of photography they are doing.

What should I look for in a Photographer?

All photographers will have an artistic portfolio so make sure you have a look at it to assess their style. Some photographers will also have a photography degree.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of photographing. It is advisable to meet your photographer in person so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their artistic portfolio, profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their photography services.

‘21 Certificate of Excellence

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I've worked as a designer and Art director for 25 years before concentrating on commercial Events and Studio Photography . Main events are Weddings, Parties, Corporate events and Festivals. Also keen on Portraiture. I love working with people and enjoy the whole creative process. I have my own studio space which is large enough to capture dance, circus, portraiture and of course product. I will do my best to respond to those that have viewed my profile or ask for a quotation. The glass is half full always I also am a qualified drone pilot.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Lots of pre event communication.

Be natural, the secret in my opinion is to blend in, be confident in managing crowd control when needed for the big groupshots and then back to enjoying the event and capturing great reportage.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

What style of photography are you looking for? Formal, informal or Something different

What do you love most about your job?

Working with people and getting great images by being responsive to the energy of the event. I love the creative process, developing the themes working with planners and making the ideas come to life. This is where my design skills come in useful as I understand how to build brands and ideas. I work with some hugely talented wedding planners, florists, dress designers, chefs and entertainers. All can be shared as part of the process.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I enjoy being in control of the creative process and have only myself to answer to.

Why should our clients choose you?

Because I'm good at what i do and have happy clients who often become friends

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Pre meeting conversations can be done using WhatsApp or zoom but as a general rule I do like to meet people and even do a portrait or an engagement shoot for weddings which is a great way to get to know you. As a photographer I can talk about the process and help clients with camera questions but as to what I can do online it's really the chat prior to the event.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

Main option is to work externally. Obviously I wear a mask and always carry sanitiser with me.

The number of photos that your photographer will take will depend on the type and duration of the photoshoot you book. You won’t see most of the photos either. This is because your photographer will take duplicate photos in case anyone blinks or looks away. They’ll then delete any photos that don’t come out quite right before showing you the final selection. A one-hour family photoshoot will typically generate between 30 and 60 finished photos.

What you choose to wear for your photoshoot is a personal choice. It’s important to choose an outfit that you feel confident in, as this will help to put you at ease during your photoshoot. Try to avoid busy patterns as these may blur on photos. If you’re having a family photoshoot, it’s a good idea to co-ordinate your outfits to ensure that you don’t clash with each other.

There are a few things that you can do to prepare your children for a photo shoot. Firstly, tell them about the photo shoot and help them to get excited. This will give the best chance of capturing smiles on camera. It’s also a good idea to make sure that the photo shoot doesn’t conflict with nap times and that your children eat, drink and go to the toilet before the photoshoot begins.
