What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

I think patience is often the key to taking a great photograph. Being able to pause and take a moment to understand what's in front of me/around me is crucial for me; it allows me to connect with my subject and consider my composition.

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

I would usually try to get a sense of their expectations, but also try to understand them a bit more as a person - especially if it's a headshot or portrait shoot. All my shoots begin with a consultation, so that my clients have the time to get comfortable around each other. There are some fairly standard questions that I tend to ask (eg. what would you like to use these photos for, are there any specific photos that you've seen and really liked, have you ever been in a photoshoot before and how are you feeling about it, etc. If it's a different type of photography these questions would vary a bit!) but beyond that I simply try to get to know my client so I can create images that accurately represent them, just as they are.

Sometimes I prefer frame my shoots more as a conversation; I think of it as two people trying to get to know each other – one them just happens to be taking photos!

What do you love most about your job?

I love being able to respond to the creativity of others! At first glance, being a freelance photographer seems like a fairly individual profession, but it's given me the opportunity to meet and work with so many creative people! I love connecting with a work of art or a piece of music that someone else has created, and feeling my own creativity kick-started in response!

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to make photography a bigger part of my life. For quite a while photography was a hobby that I was passionate about, but steadily more and more friends started asking me to do headshots of them, or photograph their gig. I realised that I was having a hell of a lot of fun, so why stop?!

Why should our clients choose you?

You should choose me because, despite my name, I’m not interested in just taking photos; I’m interested in you, and in creating images that can really represent you as you are. I am affordable, non-judgemental and very keen to work with people who might not ordinarily feel comfortable hiring a photographer - or be able to afford a photographer.

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.
