How Would You Edit A Portrait?

A Photographer’s Vision

There has to be said about the way that a photographer sees something. We all have this ability to see the same thing, but it is the artistic instinct of the photographer that will make that same image their own. The enthusiast and professional photographer alike will add their own style and character to their images, making that same image their very own. A photographer is an artist and their photographic and editing style is their signature.

The Positive Effect Of COVID-19 And The Lockdown On My Photography

COVID-19 Lockdown For Me As A Photographer?

For me as a photographer the lockdown, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, has been hard. It has been an endless struggle of loneliness, stress and worry. It has had me, at times, almost in tears not wanting to get out of bed. I lost my creativity and didn’t know what was happening with the business that I had struggled to start from literally nothing just over five years ago.

What Are You Looking For In A Wedding Photographer?

This Is Your Opportunity

With so many new wedding photographers coming on the scene every year along with the current conditions many photographers are having to have a good look at what they are offering their wedding couples.

How Has COVID-19 Impacted The Photography Industry - The Report

How Has COVID-19 Impacted The Photography Industry – The Review

As a photographer I am bombarded by individuals experiences of how they have been affected by the outbreak of COVID-19. It doesn’t seem to matter where I look it’s everywhere. My Facebook feed is full of questions being asked by a host of photographers, along with the usual questions about what to do when you have lost your ‘Mo-Jo’. Instagram is full of images of times when things were different, old images used to make people look like they are still busy (don’t let them fool you, everyone is in lockdown so photographers are not busy at the moment). Even my email is full of different people who are giving advice on what you should be doing (along with ways that I could spend the income I don’t have with them).

How Has COVID-19 Impacted The Photography Industry – A Preview

There is no question that COVID-19 has had a huge impact on all of our lives and it will continue to affect our daily lives for some time to come. As a photographer I have seen my business go from what I expected to be my best year yet to nothing.

First of all I would like to thank all of those who have contacted me so far wanting to add faces to the heroes that are helping all of us keep going.

I have so far been told about the fantastic work that Siemens Heatlineers are doing to provide research and equipment for the hospitals all around the world. Closer to home there are the more local heroes.

Coronavirus – Who Are the Heroes? – The Interview

As a photographer who is locked in isolation I find it difficult feeling that I am just sat watching as those unsung heroes go out to work each and every day. Not only those who work in the NHS but also those people who are putting themselves at risk to keep everything going so that I can have food on the table and something on TV to keep me entertained.

Wedding Photography – Early, Reading, Berkshire

Okay so it’s fair to say I have done wedding photography at a few weddings now, however, that doesn’t mean that I’m not still learning. It seems with each wedding I go to there is always the opportunity to learn something new.
