Telling the story of your special event in a visual photographic narrative, in an unobtrusive, informal, reportage style

 

Sax PlayerI am a Wiltshire based photographer, however, being based on the M4 corridor and nearly next door to the M5 makes travel to pretty much anywhere in the UK pretty easy.

I generally “go solo” at the events I photograph (though if you have a very large guest list, or perhaps a split venue, then I have an associate who will accompany me), mingling but in an unobtrusive manner. I dress appropriately for the events I attend, so as to not stand out, but to blend in. I am not by nature bossy (though my daughter may argue that point) and will not try to make people pose, or pretend they are doing something for the sake of a pre imagined picture. The words “smile”, or “say cheese” will not be uttered.

 

Instead I will record the event, telling a visual story as it unfolds. I will not disrupt the running of the event to take photographs and will take a lot of photographs discretely – but I will also interact with your guests to make them more comfortable so that although I can photographically be emotionally involved in the day, people will feel comfortable enough about my presence to not grimace or freeze for the photographs. I have excellent people skills and make people feel at ease.

 

Although most of my photography is an unobtrusive reportage style, I can certainly do some of the more traditional “formal” shots if that is what you, or the style of the event require (I would recommend that you select someone who knows the majority of the people who will be involved in the formal shots to help with the organisation – I find this generally really helps speed up the process).

We will discuss this in advance, and I will help you to come up with a suitable shooting list which can then be built into the plan for the day.

 

Lost HankieWhatever event you hire me to record, be it a wedding, a family celebration, a party, a christening or a music event, when you receive your pictures, you won’t be reminded of the photographer telling you to stand slightly to the left or telling you to look up. Instead you will receive a beautiful, honest record of the event of both colour and black and white shots, which will invoke memories of your emotions, your conversations, even your Uncle Charlie’s terrible jokes!

 

Before your Special Event

Once you have decided that you would like me to cover your event, please contact me so that we can discuss availability. I will require a 20% retainer, to secure your date.

About a month before your event I will confirm the fine details with you such as exact locations, confirm times, formal image requirements etc. The remainder of the balance is due around this time.

 

After the Special Event

Once I have finished the photography I then work through the images, editing as needed. It can take up to 4 weeks for me to finish this side of the job. I will then provide you details so that you can review, securely, the photos online at your convenience.

If I am preparing an album it is at this stage that you will chose your favourite shots. In addition, you can purchase prints of any of these images. (as well as albums and prints I can also supply your photographs in a variety of size prints, on canvas prints, large format prints etc, depending on your personal requirements).
