Röportaj

  • Fotojenik olduğunuzu düşünüyor musunuz?

    I think everyone is photogenic. Just not everyone appreciates it the first time they see a photo of themselves. I'm the kind of person who grows to like photos of myself over time, rather than instantly loving them.

  • Fotoğrafçılık endüstrisine nasıl giriş yaptınız?

    It just happened. I got married, bought a DSLR for my honeymoon, and became obsessed with it. I thought I was getting quite good, shot a friend's wedding (as a guest) and did a terrible job. So I went away, practised and studied super hard, bought better equipment then tried again. It went much better the second time and I was able to build a portfolio and website. 18 months later I quit my day job.

  • Sizce iyi bir fotoğrafın en önemli bileşenleri nelerdir?

    If we are talking about a wedding photo then it's all about emotion. Light is my obsession, but a beautifully lit emotionless or 'mute' wedding photo is pointless. A photo has to speak for itself, it shouldn't need a caption or an explanation.

  • Seyahat etmeyi sever misiniz?

    Of course. And I love that wedding photography is showing me more of the world than I would ever have seen without it.

  • Mesleğinizle ilgili en sevdiğiniz şey nedir?

    Freedom of expression. The more you shoot, the better you get, the more people hear about you and know about your work, the more freedom you are given to express yourself artistically. That and what I said about traveling in the last question!

  • Mesleğinizin en zor tarafı nedir?

    I am honestly grateful for this being my profession but of course, when you have young children at school, it can take its toll when you're out most weekends throughout the summer and not able to spend as much time with them as I would like.

  • Fotoğrafçılığının geleceği konusunda neler düşünüyorsunuz?

    Who knows?! I just hope I'm able to change and adapt to however it changes. I truly believe there will always be a market for beautiful, well crafted photos – the technology and expectations may change but the product will not.

  • Uzmanlaştığınız fotoğrafçılık türünü özel kılan şey nedir?

    People. That's what it's all about. People and relationships. Being invited into a private world and asked to document it for a day.

  • Eleştiriler karşısında yaklaşımınız nasıl oluyor?

    Badly. I do not like to be criticised. Often once it has sunk in I'm able to either reject or accept it and use it to improve, but I don't like it!

  • Fotoğrafçılığı ile ilgili yeni trendler var mı?

    Of course! I just prefer to ignore them.

  • Müşteriler fotoğrafçı seçerken ne gibi kriterleri göz önünde bulundurmalıdırlar?

    If the photographer's photos of a total stranger's wedding can make you feel something in your heart and soul, you've found your wedding photographer.

  • Fotoğraf çekimi sırasında kesinlikle izin vermeyeceğiniz şeyler nelerdir?

    There are no rules but I think each photographer will have their own principles or boundaries. If someone is crying because they are truly sad then I will not photograph them just to get that 'tear shot' that is so popular with wedding photographers these days. If I do not feel it is appropriate to shoot something, then I won't shoot it.

  • Sizce 21. yüzyılın sembolü kim olabilir?

    Can we answer this with 85 years of the century remaining?! I think there are so many medical and technological advances we will see in this century and I expect icons to be created in these areas.

  • Kimi fotoğraflamak istersiniz?

    Ben Folds, Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United.

  • Mesleğinizle ilgili tabularınız var mı?

    Not that I know of!

  • Birlikte fotoğraf çekmek istediğiniz birisi var mı?

    Annie Leibowitz, Joey L, James Nachtwey, Don McCullin, Richard Avedon... I love to shoot with other photographers, I think it's a good thing to do regularly.

  • Hangi konularda endişeleriniz var ve neden?

    I am a worrier. I worry about a lot of things! Professionally speaking I worry about becoming irrelevant, about getting stuck in a rut and left behind and nobody wanting me to take their wedding pictures!

  • Hayatınızda sizi en çok etkileyen an?

    The births of my two children.

  • Çizgi film, edebiyat veya sinema karakteri olsaydınız nasıl bir karakter olmak isterdiniz, neden?

    Peter Pan. I want to stay young and always fight pirates.

  • Hayatınızda size ilham veren birisi var mı? Neden?

    I don't know if they inspire me as such but my children are the reason that I do what I do and why I want to continually get better at it. I am inspired by anyone successful – in business, in photography, in sport, in life... Not in an arrogant way but I find my own successes an inspiration to keep trying harder and to achieve more.

  • Kısaca başarıyı tanımlar mısınız? Başarıyı nasıl ölçersiniz?

    For me, people booking me to shoot photos of them, plus the recognition of my work by my peers is probably my yardstick of success professionally. Happiness and contentment are signs of success in wider life.

  • Beğenilmeyi mi yoksa saygınlığı mı tercih edersiniz?

    I don't think it's possible for me personally to respect somebody I don't like, so I don't think you can be one or the other. I can quickly lose respect for someone who turns out to be a huge douchebag.

  • Bugüne kadar işinizle ilgili yaptığınız en büyük hatanız nedir?

    I don't remember. I know I've made mistakes but I'm pretty good about moving on from stuff.

  • Bir seyahate giderken yanınıza alacağınız şey nedir? Niçin?

    My iphone, my kindle, my macbook, my camera and some earphones.

  • Kullandığınız cihazlar arasında keşke satın almasaydım dediğiniz bir cihaz var mı? Neden?

    I tend to sell stuff if it doesn't fit into my life or work after I buy it. I remember I once bought a weird step trainer off an infomercial on the TV, it was so rubbish!

  • Daha iyi fotoğraflar çekmek adına kendinizi nasıl geliştiriyorsunuz?

    Taking pictures is the education. I'm quite analytical so if I see a photo I like I work out what I like and why... I do the same with my own photos, working out how I could've done better or what I could've done differently. I look at other photography a lot – in books, online, instagram and I think that seeps into my work.

  • Bir fotoğrafçısı olarak çalışmalarından en çok etkilendiğiniz kişi kimdir?

    I think a turning point for me was doing a workshop with Daniel Aguilar from Mexico.

  • Fotoğraf çekmeye başladığınızda bilmeyi istediğiniz en önemli şey nedir?

    That there were no rules!

  • Fotoğraflarınızda neleri anlatmak istersiniz?

    I've no idea. Good stuff I hope.

  • Neler fotoğraf çekme arzunuzu motive ediyor?

    The thing I love about taking photos, or any creative pursuit I guess is that it's just that – a pursuit – and you can never catch the thing you're chasing, but you're constantly improving, or changing at least. It's not static, or limited, or constrained. I know I've not taken my best photo, and I may never take it, but I will always keep striving for it.

  • Ailem daha otoriter veya daha özgürlükçü olmalıydı diye hiç düşündünüz mü?

    No comment.

  • Geçmişe gidebilseydin neyi değiştirmeyi isterdin?

    Nothing, I don't think of life this way. I got to this point in my life, a point in which I am extremely happy, because of the choices I made. I don't want to change anything.That, or I'd go back and invest in Apple before they invented the iPod.Or I could invent the iPod.

  • Diğer gezegenlerde de yaşam olduğunu düşünüyor musunuz?

    Maybe, maybe not. I'm not concerned with it.

  • Herhangi bir kahramanınız var mı?

    I have no heroes.

  • Kime saygı duymazsınız?

    An awful question.

  • Boş zamanlarınızda neler yaparsınız?

    I play piano, play and watch football, watch TV shows and movies, go to the gym, spend time with friends and family, listen to music...I don't see life as spare time and work time. It's just life. I do all this stuff and I work, there's no split time. I work when I have to and I play whenever I can.

  • Diğer insanların hiç bilmediği farklı bir yönünüz var mı?

    The public? As opposed to who?

  • Şu ana kadar tam olarak tatmin olduğun bir çalışma oldu mu?

    I love my own work. I love seeing progression in my work. I love it when my clients are in love with the photos I give to them. Completely satisfied? Is this possible?

  • Kadınların ve erkeklerin geleneksel rolleri hakkında neler düşünüyorsunuz?

    My parents got divorced when I was young. This has skewed my view of tradition in the home... I don't really know what traditional roles are – women raise children, cook and clean and men just earn the money? Then no, I don't believe in that. A family is the sum of its parts, not separate and distinct people or roles.

  • İnsanlarla hemen arkadaş olabilir misiniz?

    Yeah I guess. I'm never the instigator, I'm shy so I tend to wait for people to make friends with me!

  • Nerede yaşamayı isterdiniz?

    If I could have four homes I would have one in the UK, probably near where I live now, one in New York City, a rural house in Southern France and one somewhere in California! Not that I'm greedy.

  • Kesinlikle yapmayı kabul etmediğiniz en aptalca şey nedir?

    I'm not sure I've ever agreed to something stupid.

  • Evlilik sonrası hayat konusunda neler düşünüyorsunuz?

    I've been married 8 years... I'm still alive.

  • Çok sevdiğiniz bir fıkra var mı? Eğer varsa bizimle paylaşır mısınız?

    What's invisible and smells like carrots?Rabbit farts.

  • Kedileri veya köpekleri sever misiniz?

    Neither.

  • Kimden veya ne yapmaktan nefret edersiniz?

    I hate wasps. Passionately.

  • Hayatınızdaki en iyi şey:

    Family time.

  • Hayatınızdaki en sinir bozucu şey:

    Traffic jams.

  • Çevrenizde değiştirmek istediğiniz bir şeyler var mı?

    I want to make my house bigger!

  • Kendinizde neyi değiştirmek isterdiniz?

    I would like to break my iphone addiction!

  • Dünyadaki neleri değiştirmek isterdiniz?

    Far too much to list. The world is a broken place.

  • Fotoğrafçılığına yeni başlayanlar için birkaç ipucu verebilirsiniz?

    You don't have to shoot every second of the wedding, you're not making a stop motion movie... Slow down, breathe, let your mind take in what is happening then tell the story with your photos. There are no rules.

  • Uzaylılar dünyaya gelse ve onların karşısına çıkan ilk kişi siz olsanız, onlara ne derdiniz?

    You will never feel satisfied after eating a McDonalds...

  • Sizden bir film çekmeniz istenseydi, bu ne tür bir film olurdu?

    Slapstick comedy.

  • Yarın yapacağım...

    I'll go to the gym, do some editing, get ready for Saturday's wedding, kick a football with my children, eat food, drink coffee...
