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.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Understanding and continually referring to what your client wants. Having a good relationship with the client to be able to achieve what they want. Having and using excellent knowledge of photography- technical and creative. Having a sense of urgency. Being well organised. Being polite, friendly and having a sense of humour. Providing excellent experiences.

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

What services do you require?
What styles do you like/ what would you like to see your photographer achieve for you?

What do you love most about your job?

I love that I have a lot of knowledge and experience in photography and additional digital creative fields- I have a lot to hand to offer and use for clients. I am passionate about the creative arts and this will come across- I think this is important to see in business, especially when clients are paying for services and experiences.
I love meeting new people.
I feel the need to please people- and would be dissapointed if I fell short of expectations.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My passion and flair for photography and other creative digital fields. The knowledge that I have lots of experience delivering the services that I am offering- this gives me confidence to be able to earn a living from this. The experiences I have had with clients in the past- very positive.

Why should our clients choose you?

Because I put them first, and not only will they receive the service and products they need and require, they will remember the experience that I deliver in the best possible way.
Not many photographers have (Bachelor with Honours and Masters) degrees, And 10 years of practical industry experience, all in Photography. So clients can count on the fact that I know what I am doing and they are going to get what they want and more.

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

I can do editing and teach (I have a teaching qualification and currently teach the subject) the subject remotely. I can create albums and other products using photography remotely.

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.
