Personal website: https://autumnbluereflections.com I have a background in psychology and the liberal arts, and a PhD in visual and media studies. I have worked as an academic lecturer in the UK and have consulted for the third sector. I have provided photography services under the employment of Bournemouth University for two major AHRC (£557,004) / EHRC (£286,486) grants, as well as actively developed my photographic practice throughout my academic research and career, over the last ten years. I have lived and studied in several countries, including Germany, Holland, Belgium and the UK. My PhD was awarded by Nottingham Trent University under a Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship scheme. In May 2021 I decided to dedicate myself fully to my photography practice and am currently living in Durham city. I am keen to extend my client portfolio and to create simply beautiful work that enriches people's lives. I am a straightforward, considerate and reflexive professional. I enjoy the human contact and the potential for joy that good photography provides and I look forward to create exactly the kind of images required by my clients.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

I have a deep emotional understanding of what makes images work: often the difference between a decent, technically competent image and one that speaks to people's heart is small, but nevertheless immediately apparent to the human eye. I am committed to creating such images for my clients.

In my experience, a compelling image needs to be at least three of the following:

emotional | narrative | intentional | unique | documentary or archival | unsettling or otherworldly

I therefore enjoy creating images that speak to and about people as much as I enjoy representing natural scenes, colours and textures.

I am sensitive to detail and to its various degrees of poignancy.

It is always a special 'something', that which renders an image powerful - the creative, as well as technical aspect pertaining to this process is what drives me to work every day, motivated to share this joy with other people. As one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century once said, photography does indeed 'help people see' (Berenice Abbott).

Having said this, I often find that when it comes to photography, many excellent professionals have nonetheless a somewhat fixed idea of what is, or what looks 'right' - my personal view is that the client's vision must take priority, and it is the photographer's duty to meet the client's tastes without in any way compromsing his craft. Everyone is different, of course, so a healthy, open communication, with the ability to kindly engage in dialogue are good factors to keep in mind - not just when doing business, but in life in general.

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

The three main points that are very useful to address are:

1) What is the client's overall vision/taste? How can I meet the client's needs, technically and artistically, at the highest aesthetic standard?

2) What is the timeframe involved and what conditions need to be met (indoor/outdoor, staged/unstaged, human/non-human subjects, etc.)?

3) What is the client's overall budget? Does the client require printed copies in addition to high-resolution digital copies?

What do you love most about your job?

The emotional and storytelling aspect of photography is my motivation to pick up the camera every day. I see it as a great privilege, and I believe that as photographers we have a moral duty to improve the world by documenting its beauty, its fragility and its nearly infinite potential in a curatorial, socially-minded way.

And, of course, the smile of people's faces when they see the end result.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Photography has always played a role in my professional (academic) practice.

Over the past years I found myself drawn more and more to creating, editing and publishing my own work rather than editing or commenting on other people's productions, so I decided to dedicate myself fully to the craft.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have a deep emotional understanding of what makes images work: often the difference between a decent, technically competent image and one that speaks to people's heart is small, but immediately apparent to the human eye. I am committed to creating such images for my clients.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I provide remote photographic editing services, and I am also happy to discuss your project at length over video conferencing or telephone.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

Fully complying with governmental guidance on social distancing and hygiene.

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.
