When people contact me for a headshot photography session one of the first things I explain is that the session will take place either at their office, home or other location of their choice. With a lot of people working from home I am often faced with comments of “my house is a mess”, “the house is a tip” or in this case “the house is a bit of a building site at the moment”.
Most of the time these are the code words for “sorry, I’ve been really busy just lately and haven’t got around to doing the house work”.
The time for nail biting and hitting the F5 key has passed (well for another month at least) and the results of the Image of the Month competition run by The Guild of Photographers are in.
It was a testing month this time round as I entered some images that I wouldn’t usually enter and went with some landscapes that I took in Polzeath (Cornwall) last year.
A Qualified Professional Photographer
After months of work, hair pulling, crying and generally just wanting to give up I finally had the email that I had been waiting for. The email that said, “Just to let you know that the panel have judged your submission, and I am very pleased to tell you that you have passed, congratulations!”
…especially if it’s for a comedy actor
For this headshot photography session it was just a short journey to Loudwater, High Wycombe (which I appreciated after spending the day on Oxford Street with another headshot photography session). It was just what I needed as well, after a day of men in suits a good laugh was very much the ticket.
A commercial photography question
With my commercial photography I aim to capture what your brand means. Your brand is so much more than just your logo or the colours that you have chosen for you website. Your brand is you, it’s your passion and energy that is the heart of your business. It is what your business or product means to you.
So where did this question of “What does freedom feel like for you” come from?
Lifestyle family photography, is it a minefield?
When I get an enquiry for lifestyle family photography I never know where I’m going to be. It could be that when I pull up I’m faced with a huge mansion with large windows and high ceilings, or it could be a small one bedroom flat.
I got asked the other day if I could help something with Mindful Photography? It was a question that threw me, as at first I didn’t have a clue what they were talking about, so I left the question with an… “Errmm, can I get back to you?”
