Just finished a shoot for Mimifitwear to highlight their range of Yoga apparel. If you are a local business needing low cost, product shots, please get in touch!
Ever been to a professional photographer before? Not sure what to expect? Well, the minute you walk through my door you will be immediately greeted with a friendly smile and offered a seat for a quick chat. After introductions I will then give a brief discussion of what will happen next and ask what sort of images you prefer. For instance, will it be a fun shoot or an arty one? A formal or themed? Whichever it is, I guarantee we will have fun doing it!
Now, I know standing in front of a set of lights and a camera lens can be daunting but there’s no need to worry, the first shots I take will be just to get you relaxed and used to the studio environment. I will advise on poses and waffle on about all manner of things as I click away, trying to get your best poise and expression in the process. Soon, all your inhibitions will be lost (well, hopefully not all!) and you’ll be striking a pose like an experienced celebrity! After a few traditional shots, we will then mix it up a bit to get a range of choice and style – you will even have time to change outfits if so wished. For a family shoot, we will need to express some connectivity and interaction between you all – who knows, I may even get you dancing, jumping up and down or lying on the floor! At the end of the day, my aim is to make your shoot an enjoyable relaxed experience in order to capture the best possible images.
Within two weeks, your images will be available to view online so that you can make your choice in the comfort of your own home. So, in a nutshell, that’s all there is to it!
Pics from a recent Fashion Beachwear shoot for CandyblingUK. The Client wanted a specific style instead of the usual white backdrop presentation of most website catalogues. The designer supplied the models plus make-up artist and was so excited about the finished look! Love it when I get such good feedback and can’t wait for the next range of custom made clothing! Any business owners out there who want to book in to show off their products?
Phew! I knew it would be a squeeze when asked to shoot a party of 10 in my studio – but 13 arrived! No matter, I always like a challenge! With a bit of shuffling, rearranging and directing to get everyone in the shot comfortably, evenly lit and all facing camera with a smile, I fired off a few shots – but had to work fast so the children present didn’t get bored! After that, we ran through several individual family groups, which I will look forward to editing this week. Thanks for popping in Andy, Pam and family, you were awesome! Here’s a sneak preview of our first shot 🙂
An excited Demi and Zoe came in recently for some dance and flexibility poses for their portfolio, which included lots of costume changes and a few cups of tea for Mum! A great shoot and lots of fun was had by all! The tricky bit now is to choose the best shots from two hundred or so, shot for free in my studio – but I will leave that to the dancers themselves!
Welcome to Now Photography! The studio is now open for any type of photography including pet portraits, so bring them in for a treat or two! I can also shoot on location, as per this beautiful horse pic, using flash in daylight to give it a more dramatic look. This Spaniel was shot in my studio with the help of a packet of dog treats, of course! With both images, the tricky bit was to get the animals to not be camera shy! Whatever your beloved pet, even reptile, bird or rodent, pop in for your free sitting!
