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.

A: Three top tips to success? Hard work, good attitude, and hard work!

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”

I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years.

Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
