I could tell you about starting my photography career back in the heady days of film, chemicals and darkrooms, the tense anxious wait to see if I’d captured the images…..but less of that.
It’s an exciting profession to be in, its creative, sociable, you’re part of a team where communication is vital if you are going to deliver stunning images. I’d like to think by virtue of being a professional photographer for over 25yrs and supplying some of my clients for the same time, that I am fulfilling the brief!
As a professional photographer its not just about the photograph, that’s the end result, its about the organisational skills to make things happen, to meet deadlines, arrange travel and liaise with the client, customer or agency, keeping everyone in the loop. Every assignment is important to me, a cliché you might think, no, it really is. I’m passionate about image making and nothing excites me more than seeing my images in print, social media or in brochures, I’ve done my job.
As the name suggests, “Locations Photography”, yes I’m a specialist on-site, taking lighting, cameras and safety equipment to all parts of the UK, Europe and occasionally world wide to achieve “the shot” and that’s just on the stills side….did I mention shooting video?
There aren’t many photographers that can truly say they have the knowledge of shooting video! I really do. For a few years I was fortunate enough to manage a video production company, alongside a photographic studio, where I picked up all the skills required to shoot, direct, edit and produce commercial video. I love it, enhanced by new technology, its great fun, opening more opportunities to be super creative.
Please have a browse through the web site, I’d be happy to hear your thoughts and of course should you have any photographic or video requirements, drop me a line or better still give me a ring, its often best to talk…I look forward to hearing from you.
