What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
i have done many player profile shooting, where i focus and follow a player during his/her match day, very special for the subject as they can keep and treasure that memory. i have done school balls, graduations and discos, pre-ball parties etc. and it is always special when you see the reaction of the students faces when they see their special night through photos. i have done many sport club full games and been able to travel nation wide with some teams on their away game. i have enjoyed following and being part of a team and witness their progress all the the way to their victory in grand final. i have done some run series, like mud runs, marathons etc, i enjoy capturing children in those, they are less worried about the camera and give all their emotion for a nice pic. i have shot kitchen production work, followed by the the presentation. very special to capture chefs sweating, stressed and producing magic when presented at the end. as mentioned before, what makes it special for me and the client, is when the subject are happy looking at the pictures.
