“I am that, you are that, all this is that, and that is all there is”
I am a documentary photographer. I always have my camera with me. Even when I’m not working, you’ll find me quietly observing life through the lens. I believe that everything is inseparably connected with everything else, and my style of photography is about capturing all those magical unguarded moments in between. So whether its a family gathering, corporate event or a wedding, it’s about telling stories through the use of images.
My style of photography is very different to traditional/posed photography. It’s about observing the event as it unfolds and photographing it. It’s not about posing or orchestrating moments. I don’t carry a lot of gear. This is because I roam around a lot, looking for those perfect shots of you, your family and guests.
I appreciate that most events and weddings will have some form of formal photography, but I ask you consider keeping these to a minimum. Too much formal photography interrupts the opportunity for me to do what I do best, capture candid moments.
Then there’s the photos. I don’t just take photos, I also make photos. What does that mean? It means that each and every photograph you receive, will have gone through my post-production and re-touching process. I personally edit every one of the selected shots to ensure you are presented with only the very best photographs that both represent your story and my style. This is all part of my service and included in my flat priced fee, but more than that, it’s something I love doing.
We can all take a photo, but to go beyond the surface, beyond the tangible things and the pretty shapes, it takes experience. It takes years of experience to capture that je ne sais quoi. (translation: a quality that cannot be described or named easily)
Photography has taught me to slow down, to quietly observe everything and to wait for those magical moments to reveal themselves.
