  • Kas sa oled fotogeenne?

    Hell no!

  • Kuidas sa sattusid fotograafiamaailma?

    To be completely honest I finished Film School and didn't want to make films, so I looked for a way to make a living from Photography and weddings just made sense. There wasn't a burning desire to be involved with weddings. I learned to build a website and offered cheap photography and within two weeks I'd shot my first wedding. During that time I saw Rangefinder magazine and read American Photo's 'Worlds top ten' list and I was completely inspired. When I shot the first wedding I was totally and utterly hooked, I just loved everything about it. Soon after Verity joined be and we never looked back.

  • Mis on sinu arvates hea foto kõige olulisead komponendid?

    Composition, originality and light

  • Kas sulle meeldib reisida?

    Yes, although until recently I've not done much!

  • Mis sulle sinu töö juures kõige rohkem meeldib?

    Getting to do what I love with the person I love most in the world. What's not to like!?

  • Mis sulle sinu töö juures kõige vähem meeldib?

    Some of the attitudes we encountered when we first started out, with some people worrying more about what others are doing than themselves.

  • Millisena näed sa fotograafia tulevikku?

    Who knows! Everything seems to go full circle so I'm sure a lot of the techniques people are using now will still be popping up in the future.

  • Mis on sinu fotograafiažanris erilist?

    It's a day that is absolutely jam packed with photo opportunities. As photographers all any of us can ask for is a great moment or two and weddings provide a bounty of great moments. Not to mention the fact that everyones cheerful and it's just a flippin' awesome job!

  • Kuidas sa suhtud kriitikasse?

    We don't really get much criticism! Certainly not from clients, but if we did we would just try to rectify the situation any way that we could to ensure they still had a great experience. If it's criticism from peers, mentors or each other then we know they have our best interests at heart and try to take it on board so we can improve next time.

  • Kas fotograafias on teatud trende?

    Loads! Too many to list and a few that really wind me up. I won't start on those.

  • Millised peaksid fotograafi valides olema kliendi kriteeriumid?

    They have to connect with their photographer and be comfortable sharing their day with them. They obviously have to love the photos too!

  • Mida pildistades kindlasti ei tohiks teha?

    Over here in the UK we're pretty reserved when it comes to the ceremony. Our officiants don't tend to like us getting too up close and personal so we have to be careful not to overstep any boundaries there. Oh and other suppliers trying to push you out of the way....but that's another story!

  • Mis võiksid olla need detailid, millele tavaliselt tähelepanu ei pöörata, kuid mida fotograaf võib märgata?

    Intimate moments between the bride and groom,

  • Mis teeb fotost väärtusliku? Mis elemendid on olulised?

    Waaaaay to much to write down. From personal connection to technical skill. It all depends on who's judging it, I know most the photos I consider to be valuable aren't technically great, they just have emotional significance. Of course if you can get an emotionally significant photo that is technically sound then you're onto a winner!

  • Milline inimene on sinu arvates 21. sajandi sümbol?

    Haha that's a pretty odd one, I have no idea!

  • Keda sa sooviksid pildistada?

    I'd love to photograph Zach Braff!

  • Kas sul on teatud ametialaseid tabusid?


  • Kellega koos sa tahaksid pildistada?

    I'd love to go on a shoot with Ben and Erin Chrisman, Davina + Daniel, Two Mann Studios, they are all couples who've really inspired us. Oh and I'd love a day out with Emin Kuliyev, every day he posts some new awesome lens creation on Facebook, I'd just love to try out some of his exotic kit!

  • Mille pärast sa muretsed ja miks?

    I don't really worry about anything, I'm not a worrier!

  • Mis on olnud su elu kõige kõige muljetavaldavam hetk?

  • Kes sind su elus inspireerib ja miks?

    Photographically there are too many awesome people to list!

  • Kuidas sa defineeriksid edu? Kuidas sa seda mõõdad?

    Not really, I love all of my gadgets!

  • Kuidas sa ennast koolitad, et paremaks fotograafiks saada?

    By watching films and looking at masters of photography outside of weddings. There's so much to learn from other fields of photography!

  • Kelle töö on sind kui fotograafi kõige rohkem mõjutanud?

    Verity's, I see everything she shoots so that always affects me moving forwards.

  • Mis oleks see üks asi, mida sa sooviksid, et oleks teadnud enne fotograafiaga alustamist?

    The less you see other wedding photographers work, the more you develop a unique style. And not to worry about anyone copying your shots!

  • Mida sa oma fotodega öelda soovid?

    Nothing, it's about how the couple want their day to unfold and I want the photos to reflect that. Ok, it's in my style but it's their story so it should be their message.

  • Mis motiveerib sind fotograafina jätkama?

    I just love taking photos!

  • Kas sa arvad, et sinu vanemad oleksid pidanud sinuga olema rangemad või leebemad?

    I really couldn't ask for a better life, so I'd say neither, I wouldn't want anything to change!

  • Kui sa saaksid ajas tagasi minna, mida sa teeksid erinevalt?

    I'd worry less about having the best kit. It really doesn't make a difference!

  • Kas sa arvad, et teistel planeetidel on elu?

    What about it? It has to exist somewhere and I'd love to see where!

  • Kes on su kangelased?

    I don't really have any heroes, lots of people I respect, but not particularly any heroes!

  • Keda sa ei austa?

    Where I grew up there was a lot of closed-mindedness and intolerance so I don't have any respect for people like that!

  • Mida sa vabal ajal teed?

    Take photos, train for Ninja Warrior and train and compete in Triathlons.

  • Millist poolt sinust avalikkus kunagi ei näe?

    The 'sitting at home and watching chick flicks with Verity' side

  • Millal sa oled oma tööga täiesti rahul?

    Never! I love what we do but there's always things that you could improve on and that's what makes us strive to continue pushing ourselves professionally.

  • Kas sa usud meeste ja naiste traditsioonilistesse rollidesse?


  • Kas sa leiad kergesti sõpru?


  • Kus sa tahaksid elada?

  • Mis on kõige rumalam asi, mida sa kunagi oled nõustunud tegema?

    I have no idea!

  • Kas pärast abielu on elu?

    What an odd question! I love life after marriage!

  • Kas sul on lemmiknali? Räägi see meile.

    Not really!

  • Kas sulle meeldivad koerad või kassid?

    Both, but I prefer dogs!

  • Keda või mida sa vihkad?

  • Mida sa iseenda juures tahaksid muuta?

    Nothing really, I'm pretty comfortable with my flaws!

  • Mida sa maailmas tahaksid muuta?

    That's a pretty big one! A bit more financial equality around the world would be a good start.

  • Kas sa võiksid anda mõned näpunäited alustavatele fotograafidele?

    Concentrate on what you're best at, looking at other photographers is great but you'll never make any headway until you produce something that's truly your own instead of rehashing old work.

    Leave, before the government locks you in a bunker!
