I love the emotion a person can give when they are staring down my lens. The curiosity that one can find in a picture is what amazes and draws me in. I absolutely love being able to create this beautiful curiosity which is snapshotted in a small moment. Also allowing people to be drawn into someone else's gaze is the essence of why i love photography as it allows people to leave their own thoughts behind and focus on what's in front of them.
I have done a lot of event shoots and i try to float around without being intruding. This is definitely key to capturing those natural moments between people as some can be quite nervous with a camera around them. Lately i have been shooting families and that has been great. I try to interact with the family and get them doing things they love to do and keep the poses quite natural. I also do a lot profile shoots and prefer natural light and being outdoors as this creates a more lifestyle feel to balance the corporate side of their job. I find that clients will always love the outdoor shots more than the indoor shots.
I almost stopped photography due to a really harsh and abusive set of feedback i was given on some of my work. I chose to continue and here i am writing this fun fact while being a snappr photographer. Sometimes people's opinions can be quite degrading but it will always be your choice as to what you do with that opinion or feedback. It doesn't define you!
