There is nothing more that I love than taking photos of people. It’s my passion and what made me originally fall in love with photography. My goal when shooting portraits is to make you look incredible but there’s a little bit of planning that needs to be done beforehand.
This may be an overwhelming experience for you if have never done anything like this before but not to worry, I'm here to help with that. The planning process begins with an idea you have in mind or something you may have come across and would like as an inspiration for your shoot. If you have no idea what you’d like, I’m here to help with that too!
I shoot most of my images on location so natural light is something I pay very close attention to. Quality of light is extremely important when it comes to my photos as well as making you look amazing. The best time to shoot is from around 3pm to sunset. If it’s an overcast day, anytime throughout the day is perfect as the light is soft and flattering. I don’t watch the clock while I shoot so my sessions can take up quite a bit of time. Don’t worry about feeling natural in front of the camera at first, I'll make it as comfortable for you as possible during the shoot.
When it comes to outfits, wear something that you feel comfortable in. Most importantly, wear something that you look good in!
A major part of my process is the editing and retouching that goes into making my photos. It’s both time consuming and an extremely intricate process. Something I really believe adds that special touch to my images and makes them stand out from the rest.
Retouching an image is what I do after the shoot where I sit myself down in front of my computer for hours at a time. I go about removing the tiny imperfections in the image, from tiny blemishes on your skin, to giant rubbish bins, dragons and various mythical creatures from the background. I will also colour correct the image and polish up the lighting.
I aim to keep you looking as natural as possible whereas some people would just blur your skin, we need to remember that even perfect skin still has pores! I clean up your skin while retaining as much texture as possible to prevent you from looking like a piece of latex.
A lot of my work also involves intense Photoshop work, this is often required for conceptual shots as one final image may be made up of 30-60 images. These images are then put together like pieces of a puzzle in order to create a giga photo which looks incredible. These are usually what I like to call the "hero images" of the shoot and I'll always deliver at least one of these.
