Intervista

  • Sei fotogenico?

    Hell no!

  • Come sei entrato nell'industria della fotografia?

    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.

  • Secondo te, quali sono le componenti più importanti di una bella foto?

    Composition, originality and light

  • Ti piace viaggiare?

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

  • Che cosa ti piace di più nella tua professione?

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

  • Che cosa ti piace di meno nella tua professione?

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

  • Quale sarà il futuro della fotografia?

    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.

  • Cosa c'è di speciale nel genere di fotografia in cui sei specializzato?

    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!

  • Come gestisci la critica?

    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.

  • Ci sono determinate tendenze nella fotografia?

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

  • Quali criteri dovrebbe utilizzare un cliente per scegliere un fotografo?

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

  • Che cosa non è ammesso durante la ripresa fotografica?

    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!

  • Quali dettagli, che solitamente passano inosservati, riesce a notare un fotografo?

    Intimate moments between the bride and groom,

  • Che cosa influisce sul valore di una foto? Quali sono le sue componenti?

    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!

  • Secondo te, chi può essere considerato simbolo del XXI secolo?

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

  • Chi vorresti fotografare?

    I'd love to photograph Zach Braff!

  • Hai qualche tabù professionale?

    No

  • Con chi vorresti fare una sessione di ripresa fotografica?

    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!

  • Che cosa ti fa preoccupare e perché?

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

  • Qual è stato il momento più impressionante della tua vita?

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

  • Se tu fossi un personaggio di cartone animato, libro o film, chi saresti e perché?

    Totoro, because he's awesome.

  • Chi ti ispira nella vita e perché?

    Photographically there are too many awesome people to list!

  • Come puoi definire il successo? Come si misura?

    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

  • Qual è stato il più grande errore che hai commesso nel lavoro?

    Not really, I love all of my gadgets!

  • Che formazione professionale segui per fare fotografie migliori?

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

  • Il lavoro di chi ha avuto la maggiore influenza su di te come fotografo?

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

  • Qual è l'unica cosa che vorresti aver saputo iniziando a scattare foto?

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

  • Che cosa vuoi dire con le tue fotografie?

    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.

  • Qual è la tua motivazione per continuare a scattare fotografie?

    I just love taking photos!

  • Pensi che i tuoi genitori avrebbero dovuto essere più o meno severi?

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

  • Se potessi tornare nel passato, che cosa faresti in modo diverso?

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

  • Che cosa pensi della vita su altri pianeti?

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

  • Chi sono i tuoi eroi?

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

  • Per chi non hai rispetto?

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

  • Che cosa fai nel tuo tempo libero?

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

  • Quale lato di te non è mai visibile al pubblico?

    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.

    No

    What an odd question! I love life after marriage!

  • Hai uno scherzo preferito? Raccontacelo.

    Not really!

  • Ti piacciono i cani o i gatti?

    Both, but I prefer dogs!

  • Chi o che cosa odi?

    I don't really HATE anything!

  • La cosa migliore nella vita è:

    My wife!

  • La cosa più fastidiosa nella vita è:

    There only being 24 hours in a day during wedding season

  • C'è qualcosa intorno a te che vorresti cambiare?

    No

  • Che cosa vorresti cambiare in te stesso?

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

  • Che cosa vorresti cambiare nel mondo?

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

  • Puoi dare alcuni consigli ai fotografi alle prime armi?

    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.

  • Se gli alieni dovessero arrivare sulla Terra e tu fossi la prima persona ad incontrarli, che cosa diresti?
