Commercial - Advertising - Architectural
As much as I love being a wedding photographer, getting the chance to slow right down and capture the essence of someone else's work is one of my favourite aspects of being a photographer.
People often ask me how long I've been shooting commercial photography and are surprised at my answer of "Since I was 10" (30 years!). My mother was a rep for Auto Trader at the time and I would take the photos for her on an ancient Polaroid B&W instamatic while she took the details, when I tagged along with her in the school holidays. When I took the plunge of doing this full time in 2014, representing businesses and showing their best side to the world is the well trodden path I naturally followed and quickly found my way into some big name partnerships. Let's work together.
Architectural Photography is like meditation to me. Being given an assignment, watching how a building relates to its surroundings over a few days and observing how light behaves and dances around the angles... Bliss! Finding ratios and lines then capturing them using precision instruments designed to illustrate them without the distorted converging vertices many photographers don't even recognise? Let me at it.
