Briana Drury Photography

Staffordshire

Professional & experienced photographer. Specialising in Events, Wedding, and Corporate photography. Landscape & Architecture, Nature and Sport are also common themes within my portfolio of photography I am an experienced and professional photographer whose style is a mixture of natural documentary, also known as reportage or photojournalism, and contemporary fine art. While I am based in Lichfield, Staffordshire, West Midlands, I love to explore and I am available for weddings and events all across the UK, including Scotland, Wales and Ireland. I am also available for destination weddings, the more sunny the better! For me, photography is about capturing those all important moments; the emotion, drama, beauty, fun and laughter. Creating beautiful images that can move you, immortalise those special memories, and to create photographs that are beautiful, tell a story and could be considered pieces of art in themselves.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

In my opinion there are several elements which you need to focus on when taking a great photograph.
1. Composition, it should help draw the eye to the focal points in the image and allow you to move through the image. It should be pleasing and it should accentuate the subject.
2. Subject. You need to have a subject that tells a story, gives interest and draws the viewers in.
3. Focus. The focus needs to be thought out and well executed. It should draw interest to the subject and main focal point, especially if you are using a short depth of field.
4.Detail. Details, that sometimes aren't always obvious on first glance, but gives layers to the image as the more you look at it the more you might see. It could be detail is given through texture or colour, through depth, especially if the image is in black and white.

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

I will give many options and always try and tailor the day to create a bespoke service for all my clients, so knowing as much as possible is critical. As to what exact questions, it very much depends on what type of photography my client is looking for. For example, if it is for a Wedding Photography client, I like to have an informal chat to start with, get a real feel for what they are looking for, their ideas and dreams for the day. After that then I like to ensure I know the running of the day, who, what, where. I ask what group shots (if any) they would like, and who that is special to them that they would like photographs of through out the day. I think this is especially important when you are photographing an event that has a lot of reportage style photography as this ensures that you have images of people from your special day that are dear to you and really help to add to your memories of the day.

What do you love most about your job?

So many things! I love creating beautiful images. I love meeting new people and going to new places. I love being part of something special. I particularly love watching people see their images and the delight and joy each memory I have managed to capture gives.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have set up the company so I can focus on my passion for photography, applying a range of techniques creatively to truly capture those moments and tell your story. I have taught and worked in Photography for over 10 years and enjoy teaching workshops and capturing beautiful images.

Why should our clients choose you?

My previous experience has given me a wealth of knowledge and skill and I understand how important and special your day and event is, and how vital it is to make sure that the photography captures all the elements of your magical event in a discreet and calm manner.

It is so important to know you can trust your photographer. It is your day, not the photographer’s, and I believe it is important to be as unobtrusive as possible, so as not to interfere with your time with your friends and loved ones.

I have a strong background in the Arts having studied and attained an HND in Public Art, a BA (Hons) Degree in Design and Applied Arts and I have a PGDE in Art Education. This has been put to good use working in Photography and sharing with the younger generation by teaching Art & Photography for over 10 years.
I have, for as long as I can remember, had a real love and connection with photography, so much so during the years I have been a teacher and a head of department I introduced and taught photography at several schools, inspiring and nurturing the next generation of budding photographers.

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.
