What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

PORTRAITS
Look for a background and light that works with your subject/s. Make the most of what you’ve got available e.g. light, time, location, anticipate the shot or shots you’re going to take. Look for an interesting angle, give them some direction, make sure you’re ready for what’s to come and then shoot through the action / movement / expressions.
It’s really important to connect with the people as individuals. Everyone is different, everyone feels comfortable doing different things, they have their own look, they take varying lengths of time to relax in front of the camera and everyone needs images for a different reason so it's important to listen to the brief carefully.

Be patient, talk to your subjects, put them at ease and find something that works for them.

EVENTS
For events, it’s a case of having a shot list at the start to make sure all the important parts are covered, then look around, be observant and shoot the interesting stuff. Include wide shots and close-ups for a good variety of images.

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

What do you want the images for?

Are you looking for a plain or colourful background?

How many shots do you need?

Do you hope to use these photos for branding? If so, are there specific colours you'd like to incorporate to match your brand/company personality?

What would you like as a backdrop?

Are you looking for specific poses? Do you want more natural or posed shots?

What part of your personality would you like reflected in your photos?

What do you love most about your job?

Aside from doing something creative that I love, I love the variety of meeting new people, shooting in both studio, outdoors and on-location going to all sorts of different places

What inspired you to start your own business?

I had been interested in photography for as long as I can remember and in 2011 successfully completed a photography diploma with the Photography Institute. I have worked in a variety of marketing jobs where I've always gotten involved with the photography side in one way or another and kept coming back to it.

At the beginning friends saw my work on social media and started asking me to create portraits for them too. It grew from there and I eventually I set up my own photography business in 2014.

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.
