How did you get started in photography?
After the disappointment of opening yet another bunch of blurry, dodgy-looking holiday snaps, from yet another expensive camera, I had no choice but to admit where the problem lies. The camera doesn’t take pictures, people do! So I decided to take some action and actually find out how to take a decent photo. No one, not even me expected how much I will adore learning about photography, and to add to it all I was also actually good at it! So I began a more serious route of studying photography and thus a career in photography emerged!
What has been the highlight of your photography career so far?
There's always that extra excitement when a famous person books me for a shoot. Being invited to travel to spectacular distant locations is also incredibly flattering. But if I was to point to a single highlight in my career, I think it would be that moment when one of my photographs got published in Vogue. It was my personal 'oh wow' moment.
Please share with us your favourite image from your work:
Why this image is your favourite?
Because of all the emotions that led to and accompanied this very moment. To photograph a secret proposal is such an immense privilege! It's hard not to get emotional when you know how important this moment is. It will be remembered for a lifetime and recollected by future generations ..and as a photographer, you are literally invited to be right there in that moment! I live those emotions with my clients, the whole thing from planning, preparation, to final minutes right before the big questions and then those tears of joy! ...and I love those colours! This couple is so incredibly vibrant! It was pure joy to photograph them!
If you could photograph anyone in the world who would you shoot?
You! The Reader! Seriously! - I love to photograph happy people 🙂 Each person is so unique! And capturing your true expression in the photographs is an essence of my work. This is a definition of a photographer's joy!
If you could do a shoot anywhere in the world, where would you shoot?
I absolutely adore all the nooks and crannies of London and I will never get enough of this place! If I could point to a single location in the world to do a photo shoot in though, it would be Cinque Terre in Italy. I don't think there are words to describe this place properly. It's simply poetry in pictures!
What can customers expect from a photoshoot with you?
That I will listen to them 🙂 Your photo shoot is all about you! Your experience visiting London, your excitement, personality and expectations. I will help you prepare for your photo shoot. Your great mood and appearance are key in achieving a perfect gallery of photos. I will photograph your best angles and work with the most flattering light. You can choose between gentle guidance for most candid shots or go with staged paparazzi style, the choice is entirely yours!
What is your favourite thing about being on The Shoot?
I'm super excited to showcase some of my work and get to know my clients' needs better to tailor my offer more carefully, but most of all I'm thrilled to meet so many fantastic people!
