Describing ones photography style is harder than it sounds. Photographers like to think that it’s obvious what our styles are but it actually has different interpretations to different people. I personally have a difficult time categorizing myself since I don’t actively follow any photographers and developed my own style by having a camera in my hand since I was 8 years old. I also had a huge collection of photos from my family dating back to the 1800s. These photos taught me the importance of timelessness in photography and what will be interesting years from now. Hint: It’s not black and white photos with a bouquet that is in colour 🙂
The most common compliment given to me from my clients is that I manage to capture the real them in the most natural and beautiful way. While I excel at shooting in natural light, I have a deep knowledge of flash photography so that I don’t have to be at the mercy of a harsh sunlight or a dark, cavernous hall or church. This helps to make any poorly lit place more dramatic. Technical prowess is half the equation since without the ability to foresee, recognize, and react to meaningful moments and to frame them in the most flattering way possible, everything else is meaningless.
