Q: Tell us about your studio, style and approach:
A: My studio (Castor & Pollux) is a little shared space that I started off with two photographer mates two years ago, and since then has welcomed some other talents, such as a designer, illustrator & painter.
My style of personal and wedding work differ, but my wedding work is a mix of documentary with whimsical & romantic notions. My approach is non intrusive and my intent is to capture the real 'in between' moments rather than create perfect poses.
Q: If you had to sum up your style in 1-2 sentences, what would you say.
A: My work is on the documentary, whimsical side of the wedding photography fence, looking for the intimate 'in between' moments, searching for light and beauty In unusual places, rather than traditional.
Q: How do you ensure you have a sustainable business?
A: As a single business owner, you need to make sure that your work is seen. Most of my bookings come from word of mouth, Instagram and bridal blogs. I think it's important to share your best work online and submit your work to blogs that suit your style, which can help you to get the clients that you want.
Q: What are your best selling products? do you sell in person?
A: My best selling products is my wedding photography packages and art books. I'm not really into being a salesman, clients choose their own packages based on their needs and a discount is offered for art books purchased when booking a package.
Q: What are your top 3 tips for success?
A: Three top tips to success? Hard work, good attitude, and hard work!
~ Stay tuned for more Q&A posts from our wonderful contributing photographers.

Perhaps your anxieties are internal? The fear of failing at that which is most dear to you? Or the terror of living with regrets that can never be remedied?
