I am an experienced photographer who has worked in this industry for the past 3 years based in Hamilton, New Zealand. I do not hold any qualification in this field, however I have always opted to take trainings and undertaken 101 mentoring done by the professionals in the past. My Idol is Sue Bryce and I often take her online classes. I have learnt a lot in this time and there is still a lot more to learn in the future.
I love doing photography because I love doing it! I mean that moment when I submit the photographs of an event, a function or a family shoot I see the smile and how people get so emotional with all their photographs. I haven't seen anything more amazing than photographs that you could hold close to you for the rest of your life and fall in love every time you look at it. I have had clients in past who still tell me every time they meet me about how everyone love their pictures. It is just amazing as they hold a lot of emotions for people and a lot of memories as well. This is the beauty of photography, it doesn't holds time for anyone but surely captures it for people.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done a lot of family portraits and a few Vanity fair as well along with a few weddings. One thing I have realised is I get the best shots when my clients are being themselves. Like for the vanity fair i would ask them if they were to sit or stand how would they normally do it and than I would move their hands and try to get that. Outdoor shoots are much more fun! I let the parents and kids have a good time together and I capture it. I ask them to play with their kids and to let them free so I could capture them as well. Weddings are just amazing. All i have to do is get the shot. Every emotion and every moment.
