Almost anyone can take a photograph these days, but as a professional photographer I want to do more than this, I want to take you on a journey. I want to seek out your story, make you look incredible. I want to give you photos or video that will help build your business and is reflective of your brand. I will do this through strong, creative imagery with the purpose of capturing the real you, images that tell a story.

Just like a story, it has a beginning, middle and end. So too does my photographic process. My aim to make this experience as easy as possible.

I want to get it right from the beginning. It’s not just about the photoshoot itself. Generally people aren’t aware of what they want, they just know they need great professional image that steers away for the typical headshot.

It’s comes through from our initial consultation, this help begins the planning process of your shoot and how to best photograph you: the storyboard, the location, the style and mood you want to depict, right down to what to wear.

This all helps makes your shoot flow easily as there is clarity before I pick up the camera. Afterwards you will receive multiple images photographed consistently that will reflect your brand. Then there’s the time spent in post-production that really makes the photographs stand out.

My purpose is to tell your story through your images, to make the whole process simple and to have you looking your absolute best in order to create impactful images that you will be proud of.
