What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

There really isn't one secret behind taking a great photograph, but there are a series of steps you should take to make the session a success.

The object of any photography session is to capture the atmosphere of the day. If at all possible, I do like to assess the venue, situation beforehand to establish what equipment is needed. I tend to only take the equipment I need for the day . My style is to blend in with the back ground and be as discreet as possible. If it is a family event, it is their day I am there to capture the occasion and not be the centre of attention. For staged studio/home sessions my aim is to make the sitter feel as comfortable as possible so we can achieve natural expressions.

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

The first question I ask my client is, what do they want from their photo session. Is there a theme/style they want to achieve and then what medium do they want their images presented in. Whether it is jpegs for a website or a bespoke 20" x 30" framed print it is their photo session, my client and my aim is to please. Obviously, the budget is also discussed as we need to establish that I am able to supply their requirements within budget and not present them with an unaffordable invoice as that isn't good for either party.

What do you love most about your job?

Every job is different, ranging from the people and products, location, lighting conditions and time of day, making each project a fresh challenge. I love interacting with my clients and it is my mission to ensure that they receive the images they require. Every time I load my equipment into my car there is a mixture of anticipation, excitement and nerves and that is what drives me on. It shows me that I care.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I had been employed in the photography business for many years, initially working in a traditional darkroom, hand developing film and enlarging prints and then progressing to the digital side in the early 2000's. Circumstances changed in 2016 and I found myself with the opportunity to start my own business, it took a few months to get everything into place and it was officially launched in September 2017.

Why should our clients choose you?

My clients receive 100% of my attention. I am honoured that they have put their faith in me to photograph their event or product. I am involved throughout the whole process from taking the booking to mounting the prints. I edit all of my own work and only use professional business' for my printing and framing. The emphasis on my work is quality. I am only happy if my clients are happy.

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.
