What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

I have attained an 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.

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 degrees of poignancy.

As one of the great photographers of the 20th century once said, photography does indeed have the capacity to 'help people see' (Berenice Abbott).

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

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

2) What is the timeframe involved and what practical conditions need to be met?

I mostly shoot prime, manual-focus lenses. I prefer natural light for portraiture work and a combination of natural and artificial light for commercial photography.

What do you love most about your job?

The emotional and storytelling aspect of photography is my motivation to pick up the camera. It is a privilege.

Photography is also dangerous, as it so often cultivates appearances rather than substance. People can confuse the frame with the truth, and that creates the potential for pain, prejudice, and disappointment. It also creates unhealthy escapism and hypocrisy. There is great suffering in the world today because of this narcissistic tendency, which abuses the medium. Of the people affected, women suffer in particular. This pain can further be traced back to unrealistic, misogynistic aesthetic standards, born of lust, greed and a desire for profit. Having recognised my own negative narcissistic traits, I am no longer confortable contributing to this objectifying industry, especially after personal life experiences have revealed its horrific impact to me.

This is not to say that all images of women and their body are problematic, but it is to say that many of them are; for this, and other reasons, I prefer to focus on male portraiture, where the moral dangers can be more readily avoided, and where the power imbalance is not so striking.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I decided to create, edit and publish my own work.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have an understanding of what makes images work.

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 clients' projects at length over video conferencing or telephone.

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

I comply with governmental guidance on social distancing and hygiene (if applicable).

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.
