A run down of what I can photographically offer
From and idea through to execution - I develop ideas into a fully fledged photoshoot.
This typically can include everything from concept, model selection, clothing, prop hire through to final shoot. I work with a team of specialists who will cover every aspect, from hair and makeup through to clothing hire - whilst ensuring that our vision is on track and will be realised.
Photography, lighting and retouching
I am happy to shoot in the studio or on location. I am responsible for lighting and ensuring that we get the shot as right as possible ‘in camera’. I am happy shooting with any lighting source and can bring my mobile studio equipment to wherever the shoot needs. After the shoot I can retouch images and create complex composites to a very high standard suitable for advertising and print.
In addition to photographic stills, I also shoot video - this can be as either a dedicated shoot or as part of a traditional photoshoot. These can create additonal advertising collateral and media for clients. Increasingly I shoot video content for people’s websites including: video blogs, tutorials, mini-ads, instagram stories.
Design & digital
I can also apply your work throughout varied design applications - from flyers, through to corporate brochures, from social media headers through to business cards.
Studio & photography lighting training workshops
I offer various degrees of training in photography. I’m a firm believer of workshops, rather than formal training sessions. My sessions are fun, with a good mix of no nonsense advice and explanation with plenty of hands-on experience shooting within the studio. Lighting within the studio is all about knowing your tools to build a lighting setup that works for you. I can give you an insight and starting point for your journey into studio lighting - including lots of my personal tips and tricks on how I work with light and models.
All my sessions include:
25% no-nonsense theory / 75% hands-on shooting
1-2-1 Photographic studio lighting workshop sessions
Beginner / intermediate sessions aimed at getting you comfortable with shooting with studio lights within a 1 on 1 environment with myself and a model. These are arranged on an individual basis and can be tailored to exactly what you are wanting to achieve. These sessions are an immersive 2 hours in length
Group photographic studio lighting workshop (max 8 people).
Beginner / intermediate sessions within a group shooting models and the occasional vehicle. Sessions include shooting a model (optional) .
