Derbyshire, DE7 5FJ

My speciality is portrait photography. I am just as happy creating images in my studio or on location. I provide head shots, business portraits or creative portraiture if clients want something a little different.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

I was once told that the secret to photography is that here is no secret. Photography is an art form and you have to feel it. As much as you have to be technically competent knowing your camera and lights, when taking portraits, I find people are generally nervous in front of the camera and are never quite sure what they want. It's important to engage with your subject and help them to relax. If your relaxed and look confident then it will reflect on your subject putting them at ease.

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

What date do you need to book the shoot for?
What kind of images are you looking for?
Do you want me to shoot on location or shall I take the images in my studio?
How many people need their images taken?
Is there a particular ' look ' that you are trying to reflect to your customers?

What do you love most about your job?

I don't think one chooses photography, I think it chooses you. It's in your blood like music is to a musician. I love creating images and being proud of creating tangible results that benefit my clients.

What inspired you to start your own business?

It's the next step of evolution to a photographer, we have a natural desire to keep taking images and improve our game. It starts from taking photographs of family and friends and then you start getting commissions. Before you know it, your in business.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have a solid foundation in photography, after studying for three years gaining a GCSE, A Level and BTEC National Diploma, I then went on to assist photographers in London for two years. Having been a photographer now for 25 years, I have gained invaluable experience fine tuning my skills. I love people as much as photography so taking portraits was a natural progression for me. I have a friendly easy going personality and I'm still very passionate about what I do. The client always comes first and I'm happy to work towards their needs giving 100% at all times.

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.
