What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

It's a bizarre and sometimes difficult mix of patience and timing. Whether it be waiting for hours for a well-lit landscape and finding the perfect moment to close the shutter, or being able to relax and enjoy a family or group of children's antics and capturing the natural happiness of every joke or mishap, there is no room for quick snapping. Especially with portraits and events, organised and rigid photos simply never have the same joy or feeling as when I take the time to just mingle, enjoy and capture the 'real' moments.

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

Apart from budget and time/location, of course, I want to understand exactly what they want from the session. Do they want formality, for me to arrange them and suggest good poses and backdrops, or do they simply need me to go with the flow and capture the events of the day in an informal and unscripted way? I'm completely flexible in the way I work and can create a variety of moods through my photos, so a customer who can help me understand the feeling of an occasion and the inspiration or purpose of the shoot is always my best customer. I am there for you, and there to create something that you will treasure - if you have a really detailed idea of the kind of shots you want, then don't hold back. A clear-minded customer is never bossy, in fact they are a welcome instructor.

What do you love most about your job?

Memories. From creating a pause-in-time of a mountain's seasonal changes, to capturing a child's joyous face as they open their birthday presents in a moment that can be relived forever, I love nothing more about my job than the feeling of eternity. Moments caught through a lens will be forever unchanged, and no matter what is to come, there will always be photos to remind us of pour favourite aspects of the things we cherish most in life.

What inspired you to start your own business?

The drive to be unhindered by the 9 to 5 and never dictated by employment. Not so much for myself, but because the flexibility of doing what I love, whenever I am able or needed, is visible in my work. Being my own boss means that I am so much more able to provide a service well - because I enjoy it, which is reflected in the quality of my work, and because I am unbound by set work hours or policies. Someone who is able to live and breathe their passion, instead of grappling with doing it as a side job or hobby, can provide flexibility in their services and, quite simply, superior images and a better experience, because they both thrive and survive on their craft.

Why should our clients choose you?

Apart form being well acclaimed with a diverse portfolio, I like to believe that my clients are sincere when they say they feel so relaxed when they work with me. Although I am 'the professional', I do not take that as a reason to dictate. If a customer has an idea, or would like to 'see how this would look', I'm all ears! I want my photos to reflect you, and I want to you to have fun. Photography sessions aren't cheap, so I want my clients to be the driving force and to let their creativity and ideas flow. I'm not there for me, I'm there for you - these are your memories, and they should be just as perfect as you imagined them.

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.
