I love to both teach and shoot street photography. It can be a wonderful peek into the absurdities of everyday life. Real people, doing their thing, being themselves. There’s so much to capture with this genre and it’s so incredibly accessible – you don’t have to travel to some exotic far away land (although brilliant if you can!), it’s right there on your doorstep.
Humour, intrigue and fun juxtapositions are the name of the game for me here. “Street” always carries over so well into my wedding photography and has very much shaped the way I approach an event, all of which I’d love to talk through with you in a session.
Another “style” I like to shoot and teach is family photography. This isn’t what many photographs call “family photography” – it’s not about staged portraits for me. It’s really just capturing those people who are incredibly special to you, exactly as they are. Not saying cheese and staring uncomfortably down a lens, but being themselves. I don’t have a big family, and have no kids of my own. But my little family is the best thing in the world to me; being able to capture that is a joy.
It’s the most rewarding photograph you can take, and I’d love to spend a session with you sharing my approach on this.
