How i work

Here’s what you need to know about working with me. I ensure the process is simple and collaborative, focused on capturing the best images in partnership with you.

Before you book

I specialise in lifestyle corporate/business photography/videography and events photography, having worked behind the lens since 2007. Find out more about me and see some of my work to help you decide if I’m the right photographer for you.

If you like what you see, I offer all potential clients a free initial consultation. This can take place over the phone, on a video chat, or in person. If you’d like a consultation, let’s talk!

Shaping your brief

During your consultation we’ll discuss the purpose of your shoot and how you’ll be using your images/video, so I can gain a clear insight into what you need. If you have a specific shot list or a fully formed brief, I’ll take my lead from you. If you need some inspiration (perhaps you’ve not worked with a photographer before, or you have a new start-up business), I can lend a hand. I use my experience to tell you what works.

On the day

I arrive on location with everything I need – my camera, a kit bag of lenses, memory cards, and plenty of inspiration. I’ll be there nice and early to say hi and get set up, so you won’t need to do anything beforehand. I work away efficiently in the background, blending in and capturing the agreed shots.

Few people love having their photograph taken – I promise I can change that! I make sure everyone feels at ease, so I can capture the best images and make the process more enjoyable. I understand there’s nothing worse than having photographs you dislike.

If I’m shooting an event, I can provide images throughout the day for live marketing, social media and press coverage.

After your shoot

Following your shoot, I supply all images as digital files, suitable for both online use and printed materials. These images can be downloaded onto your desktop to use as you choose. You will also be supplied with a link to your own online gallery where you can browse through the images. We’ll discuss timescales before your shoot so you’ll know exactly when to expect your images – let me know if you have tight deadlines and I’ll work to accommodate you.
