面试

  • 您上相吗?

    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.

  • 您是如何进入摄影行业的?

    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.

  • 在您看来,一张好的照片最重要的组成部分有哪些?

    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.

  • 您热爱旅行吗?

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

  • 对于您的职业,您最喜欢什么地方?

    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!

  • 对于您的职业,您最不喜欢什么地方?

    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.

  • 摄影的前景如何?

    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.

  • 您专长的摄影风格有什么特别?

    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.

  • 您如何应对批评?

    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!

  • 摄影有什么趋势?

    Of course! I just prefer to ignore them.

  • 客户选择摄影师时应该遵循什么标准?

    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.

  • 拍摄时绝不允许什么事情?

    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.

  • 在您看来,什么人可以成为 21 世纪的代表人物?

    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.

  • 您想要为谁拍摄?

    Ben Folds, Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United.

  • 您有职业禁忌吗?

    Not that I know of!

  • 您想与谁一起拍摄?

    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.

  • 您担心什么?为什么担心?

    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!

  • 在生命中,给您印象最深的时刻是什么?

    The births of my two children.

  • 如果有机会成为一个动画、文学或电影人物,您想成为谁?为什么?

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

  • 在生命中谁鼓舞了您?为什么?

    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.

  • 您如何定义成功?如何衡量它?

    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.

  • 您非常受人喜欢或尊敬吗?

    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.

  • 您在工作中犯过的最大错误是什么?

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

  • 当您准备去旅行时,要携带什么?为什么?

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

  • 在您拥有的器材中,是否有一些是您后悔购买的?为什么?

    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!

  • 您如何提高自己以拍摄出更好的照片?

    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.

  • 谁的作品对您作为摄影师的影响最大?

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

  • 开始拍摄时,您最想知道什么?

    That there were no rules!

  • 您想对自己的照片说什么?

    I've no idea. Good stuff I hope.

  • 什么激励您继续拍摄下去?

    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.

  • 您的父母是否应该更严厉或变得温和一点呢?

    No comment.

  • 如果能够回到过去,您会有什么不同的举动?

    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.

  • 对于其他星球上的生命,您有何看法?

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

  • 谁是您的英雄?

    I have no heroes.

  • 您不尊重谁?

    An awful question.

  • 您在业余时间会做什么?

    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.

  • 公众从不会看到您的哪一面?

    The public? As opposed to who?

  • 什么时候您对自己的作品完全满意?

    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?

  • 您主张男人和女人的传统角色吗?

    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.

  • 您很容易就会交到朋友吗?

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

  • 您想生活在什么地方?

    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.

  • 您答应做的最愚蠢的事情是什么?

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

  • 结婚之后生活的质量高吗?

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

  • 您有最喜欢的玩笑吗?请告诉我们。

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

  • 您喜欢狗还是喜欢猫?

    Neither.

  • 您讨厌谁,或者厌恶什么?

    I hate wasps. Passionately.

  • 生活中最美好的事情是:

    Family time.

  • 生活中最让人烦心的事情是:

    Traffic jams.

  • 您是否想改变周围的一些事情?

    I want to make my house bigger!

  • 您希望改变自己的哪些方面?

    I would like to break my iphone addiction!

  • 您希望改变世界什么地方?

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

  • 对于刚入行的摄影师,您能提供一些建议吗?

    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.

  • 如果外星人来到地球并且您是他们见到的第一个人,您会跟他们说什么?

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

  • 如果您被邀请去拍一部电影,您希望是什么流派?

    Slapstick comedy.

  • 明天我会去做...

    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...
