I've been taking photos for as long as I can remember. As a shy kid growing up, I was always the one who volunteered to take the photos of my friends and family as it meant I didn't have to be in them! This naturally led to people asking me to "officially" take photos at important events and I discovered I had a talent for capturing people and moments in a completely natural, candid way.
Although I've been taking photos for over 15 years, it's been in the last 5 or so that I have started to focus on fine tuning my skills; studying how light, angles, subject matter, framing and colour can turn a good photo into an amazing one. One that perfectly captures the moment and provides a lifetime of memories.
I believe that the reason some people are disappointed by photos of themselves is due to their tension and nervousness about "posing" for a photographer. I work just as hard to create a comfortable environment for my clients as I do at taking pictures. If you're happy and enjoying the experience, this will show in your photos.
