Interview

  • Êtes-vous photogénique ?

    Hell no!

  • Comment avez-vous commencé à travailler dans la photographie ?

    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.

  • Selon vous, quels sont les éléments les plus importants d'une bonne photo ?

    Composition, originality and light

  • Aimez-vous voyager ?

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

  • Quel aspect de votre profession préférez-vous ?

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

  • Quel aspect de votre profession aimez-vous le moins ?

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

  • Quel est le futur de la photographie ?

    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.

  • Qu'est-ce que le style de photographie dans lequel vous travaillez a de spécial ?

    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!

  • Comment gérez-vous les critiques ?

    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.

  • Y a-t-il des modes dans la photographie ?

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

  • Quels devraient être les critères pour qu'un client choisisse un photographe ?

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

  • Quels sont les interdits lors de photographie ?

    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!

  • Quels détails seul un photographe peut-il remarquer ?

    Intimate moments between the bride and groom,

  • Qu'est-ce qui influence la valeur d'une photo ? Quels en sont les éléments ?

    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!

  • Quelle personne peut être le symbole du 21ème siècle selon vous ?

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

  • Qui aimeriez-vous prendre en photo ?

    I'd love to photograph Zach Braff!

  • Avez-vous des tabous professionnels ?

    No

  • Avec quel photographe aimeriez-vous faire une séance photo ?

    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!

  • De quoi vous inquiétez-vous, et pourquoi ?

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

  • Quel a été le moment le plus impressionnant de votre vie ?

    I don't know really, hopefully there's lots to come!

  • Si vous étiez un personnage de dessin animé, de livre ou de film, qui seriez-vous et pourquoi ?

    Totoro, because he's awesome.

  • Qui vous inspire dans votre vie et pourquoi ?

    Photographically there are too many awesome people to list!

  • Comment définissez-vous le succès ? Comment le mesurez-vous ?

    Are people booking you? That's really all there is to it, everything else in terms of awards etc is lovely but not a measure of success.

    Liked

  • Quelle a été votre plus grande erreur professionnelle ?

    Not really, I love all of my gadgets!

  • Quelle méthode utilisez-vous pour améliorer vos prises de photo ?

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

  • Qui vous a influencé le plus en tant que photographe ?

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

  • Quelle chose auriez-vous aimer connaître avant de vous lancer dans la photographie ?

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

  • Qu'aimeriez-vous dire avec vos photos ?

    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.

  • Quelle est votre motivation pour continuer la photographie ?

    I just love taking photos!

  • Pensez-vous que vos parents auraient dû être plus stricts ? Moins stricts ?

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

  • Si vous pouviez revenir dans le temps, que changeriez-vous ?

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

  • Que pensez-vous de la vie sur d'autres planètes ?

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

  • Qui sont vos héros ?

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

  • Pour qui n'avez-vous aucun respect ?

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

  • Que faites-vous pendant votre temps libre ?

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

  • Quel aspect de votre personnalité le public ne voit pas ?

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

    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.

  • Croyez-vous en le traditionalisme des rôles de l'homme et de la femme ?

    No

    Yes

  • Où aimeriez-vous vivre ?

    What an odd question! I love life after marriage!

    Not really!

  • Préférez-vous les chats ou les chiens ?

    Both, but I prefer dogs!

    I don't really HATE anything!

    No

  • Que changeriez-vous chez vous ?

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

  • Que changeriez-vous dans le monde ?

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

  • Auriez-vous quelques astuces pour des photographes débutants ?

    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.

  • Des extraterrestres arrivent sur Terre et vous êtes le premier à les rencontrer. Que leur dites-vous ?

    Leave, before the government locks you in a bunker!
