For Photography Day today I thought I would simply share with you my favourite things to photograph
Despite being a night owl, when I can get up early, I prefer the light at sunrise to any other part of the day. The quality of light appeals so much more to me at this time, as opposed to sunset.
You cannot beat pure, natural emotion because when it is real, it radiates out of people.
I love photographing all animals, but having always had a dog, it is natural for me to capture their ways, looks and quirks that make them unique.
Food photography can be so incredibly creative these days. So whether it is street food, or a styled shot, for me, it is about if it makes me imagine tasting it, or cooking with it.
My absolute number one thing to photograph and everybody knows this. It is usually the colours, or culture that captures my eye when travelling.
Lifestyle Fine Art
I love to create fine art images and lifestyle product shots just for me sometimes. I like to play with putting items together and I am inspired by textures and tones.
I love that I get to see a lot of art in my studio thanks to some incredible local artists and I can’t help but be inspired by what they have created.
Obviously the tiny innocence of a newborn is beautiful, but I always love watching the parents adoring looks at their little miracle of life.
I am not the best trekker and not a huge fan of heights but I know it is worth it, because the mountains always have the most surreal views that make me really feel emotion.
Styled photography shoots are like a big play date for most suppliers involved in them and I love them also. You have more time to try things, be creative and push your knowledge a little more.
There is something about the tiny detail of things that draws you in, so if I get a chance to use my macro lens, I always love the images I get out of it.
Those natural moments in photoshoots are more priceless I think. It is real life. It is like the family photographs of childhood that inspired me to take on photography in the first place.
From a British seaside to a white sand beach, I adore the coast and the sea and there is something about these images that feeds the soul.
