What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

It's not the camera, with the right conditions you can create amazing pictures on a smart phone, but if the light is wrong then it's a case of using your skill to produce a great image. Knowing your equipment and understanding light are the main factors, but then understanding composition, and telling a story in a instant are the key things in taking great images.

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

I like to know the location of the shoot, it allows me to access the lighting conditions.
How the images are to be used, are they online for Instagram or are they to be printed, used as posters, flyers etc.
How many images they require
Turnaround of the project from Shooting to Post Production of the images.

What do you love most about your job?

Creating an image, that people love is very rewarding. Concepting ideas and creating something with like minded people is also very rewarding, seeing the finished product on a poster, online or in a magazine is amazing.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Having been in IT and behind a desk for 20 years I decided after working on a short film doing the BTS/Stills photography that I need a drastic career change, after a year or doing work on films and some fashion I moved to create This Thing called Photography. 3 years experience now behind me it's time to push forward with my new career.

Why should our clients choose you?

Sounding very cliched but I am easy to work with, will deliver what you need when you want it. If you are not sure then we can discuss and together we will get the images you want. If the image needs it I will go the extra mile to get it for you (well within reason).

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.
