How to take part?
—Do you look good in pictures?
—No.... If I was, I would be in front of the camera.
—How did you start working in the wedding photography field?
—I've always been into photography but seen wedding photography as extremely scary as you only ever get one chance and because of that I stayed away from it. However after my own wedding in 2014 I realised that wedding photography can be so much more than the traditional approach and I wanted to be part of that.
—What are the key elements that make a photo attractive?
—Light, composition, moment. Its that easy.
—Do you like travelling?
—Erm, Yeh! My wife and I never visit the same place twice so we make every opportunity to make the most of holidays. We rarely spend time on the beach because most beaches are similar. We like to experience countries and capture them in the most appropriate way possible. For our honeymoon, we didn't do the beach thing, we traveled to Nepal to trek to base camp of Everest – quite possibility the hardest thing we have done ever!
—What is there in your work that brings you joy?
—Meeting people and seeing their reaction to the images I have taken. It makes me feel amazing when people look at the back of the camera and can't believe they are in the image.
—Is there anything in your work that you don't like or even hate?
—That's a hard one.... Missing the wife at the weekend? I guess I need to say that in case she sees this....!
—Can you imagine what wedding photography will be like in future?
—Wedding photography has become so competitive recently and photographers are finding ever more ways to stand out and be creative. If you look back 10 years it is clear the standard of wedding photography has
—What makes wedding photography different from other photography genres?
—People! Emotion! People! Emotion!Most people have been to a wedding but its so different when its 'your' wedding. Being a wedding photographer, you have a VIP pass into the inter world of the bride and groom and have access to the most special parts of the day which some friends and family aren't able to witness. Whether thats seeing the dad's emotion of seeing his daughter wearing the dress for the first time, helping the bride pluck up the courage to walk into the church or having a front row seat at the church. Wedding are special special days and being able to capture this is a honour.
—How do you deal with criticism?
—It only makes you better. I actually like to hear the honest feedback from my couples as its not about what I think, its all about the bride and groom. Fortunately I haven't been in a position to have any negative criticism, but I do welcome constructive feedback in any aspect of my business.
—What should future newlyweds pay attention to when looking for a wedding photographer?
—Personality... Do you feel comfortable that the photographer is going to be with you at very special moments in the day and do you feel confident that he/she is going to do an amazing job and deliver images you are going to love forever
