I want to take photographs of you and your family that you will enjoy looking at for years to come. I’m a natural portrait photographer which is a term bandied around more often than not these days but it basically means that I take you out, somewhere with a good view, not too many people around and a plan to have you at your most relaxed within minutes of meeting me. Nine out of ten conversations I have about work start with someone telling me that they hate having their picture taken. I know, I get it, I hate it too…but that’s cause we all feel a little exposed, and guess what? That’s OK. I like the challenge, and it’s my job to put you at ease, whether you’re having photos for work, for your kids, or just for you.
There is always a level of interaction from me, some posing and a little bit of instruction but that’s because there has to be, otherwise I may as well come round to your house and take photos of you watching the telly! My purpose is to make even the posed pictures look relaxed and not to make you feel any more uncomfortable than you already do. The level to which I enjoy my job extends to creating images that I want to look at, not just you and to do that I need to get the best out of you by being the best person that I can be. I do that through getting to know you, finding out your likes and dislikes, and in turn, creating portraits together that you will treasure forever.
