1 – Tell us a bit about yourself
I believe every couple should feel amazing when looking back at their wedding photos. Because at the end of the day once the dust has settled the photos are all you’re left with. I’m a wedding photographer from Hampshire with a candid and relaxed style. I also shoot a bunch of corporate content which provides a nice amount of variety in my work and always keeps me on my toes!
2 – How and when did you get started?
I started Hampshire Photographer in the darkest pit of the pandemic. I think most people took this time to reflect on their lives and for me it meant breaking out of my 9-5 job, working for myself and creating content that makes others happy.
3 – What has been your most satisfying moment so far?
Every single time a new inquiry hits my inbox! The thought that there’s someone out there that has taken the time to look at my work and trusts me with one of the most important days of their life is amazing.
4 – What motivates/drives you?
I actually had to sit and think about this answer for a while. It’s a question I haven’t asked myself recently. For a long time I’ve taken pride in other’s opinions and making sure I’m delivering content which makes them happy. Whilst this is still at the core of my work I’m starting to see a form of self motivation in shooting photographs that look natural and organic. It’s a slow process but I’m excited to see where it leads.
5 – What advice would you give yourself at the start of your career?
I guess I am still quite early into my career but I wish I could have told myself that being bold is good. I started so hesitant and wishing someone was there to guide me. Trust your instinct and everything will be okay.
Oh and there are no rules. If you want to do something, just do it.
