Since finishing my Contemporary Art Studies, I have found myself continuing to develop my skills in digital photography both with natural light and studio strobe work. This has sparked a new creative energy in me with my emphasis on capturing human interaction on my camera.
Although I shoot in colour, my real passion is working in black and white, where I feel able to capture a timeless quality to my work. I recently attended a studio lighting workshop and this has allowed me to be far more creative with my light control in photography.
My main aim during photoshoots is to make them a fun experience, this way, I am able to capture the essence and raw mood of the model, family or group. Whether in my studio, your own home or out on location, my mission is to record the happenings in a natural fashion. I love to keep everyone in a fun mood, so don't worry about me being too bossy haha! Every family is unique and I am guided by each client as to what they want from me, with even a family walk being a memorable experience! This documentation photography is almost like watching a film and allows my clients to really enjoy their day then re-live the day again when they see their photographs.
With a variety of different clients, covering most aspects of life, I never get complacent with my work. My work covers all aspects of human life and the passages of life the majority of us cover when growing up in this world. I am basically willing to attempt anything new a client throws at me!
I am greatly inspired by contemporary photographers Ian Rankin, Bill Bailey and Carmen Spitznagel, however my main inspiration comes from Bill Brandt (photographer 1904-1983). I TOTALLY love his dramatic documentation work of the 50's, iconic 60's style with strong contrasts and tones and his later abstract works using photography as his art media.
