PREVIOUS WORK

I have built a portfolio and reputation for producing vibrant, upbeat imagery that is dynamic and storytelling. Over the 11 years I’ve developed what I believe is the most important part of being a working photographer and that is my ability to understand and be sympathetic towards subjects I work with. Projects such as this, working with regular people with no experience of photo shoots require quick understanding of individuals and ability to adapt and work around any awkwardness unwillingness to put people at ease and produce great, natural, unforced imagery. I’m passionate about people and what they do, I often find this passion helps build relationships with the people we work with and thus create great photographs. In 2016 I became a CAA approved drone pilot.

COLLABORATION

I work closely with clients, the process from inception to delivery is a collaborative one. To successfully complete projects like this its vital that you can assist in organising subjects and location access. I’ve experience in doing this myself but it’s great to view this as a team effort.

TIMES & SHOOT CONDITIONS

I would imagine that it’s best to firstly produce an overall starting list of images that you need within this time slot (it’s worth bearing in mind that landscapes and outdoor/aerial work is subject to the weather and seasonal appearance) and then grouping the shots into locations and days.

As a general rule, an hour in a location for portraits of a subject or two is a good guide. My time taken is usually dependant on setting lights up (if necassary), location scouting and interacting with subjects. We can often try a few different things within that hour.

Landscapes are often best shot early morning or late afternoon for the best quality light.

Aerial work is subject to legal take-off locations, wind/rain and airspace regulations.

NEXT STEPS

Next step would be for us to meet and I’d love to answer any other questions you may have. From there if you feel I’m a good fit then we can start scheduling (April is the time of year most businesses try to book me with the new budget year) and discussing shot lists and more specific requirements.
