a little bit about me
Hello and welcome to my website!
I’m Scott and I have been doing photography for over a decade now which I am extremely grateful for.
As a photographer I like to keep shoots relaxed. I will always keep going until I get the shot, so there is no need to worry along the way. I like to make the most out of every shoot and I’m generally up for a little bit of crazy.
Pre-planning goes a long way in any shoot so I do appreciate receiving input and ideas from my clients so we can work together to get something spectacular.
Where I work:
I am based in East Grinstead, but happy to travel. My primary areas of work outside of London and Brighton are listed here, however I am happy to travel and available to do photoshoots across the UK and abroad.
Upon contacting me I would want to establish your taste and ideas for the shoot.
You will then receive a written quote for the shoot, and upon acceptance of the quote, the photoshoot would be booked in.
A deposit of 50% is required at the time of booking.
Final invoice is due to be paid before the completed photos are delivered.
Yes. The best way to shoot documentary style shoots or family shoots is to set the scene and then operate naturally within that set. That way it doesn’t look staged or come across as unnatural.
Yes. I have shot a lot of family photography.
I often shoot families at their homes, in studio or going out to parks, forests etc. I always aim to accommodate the individual family needs and to create a lasting memory.
As a parent myself, I do understand that it can take time with little ones, and I am familiar with them wanting to take photos with my camera too.
In England, mid October to mid November.
The first wave of foilage colour change is mid October, but the oaks don’t change until early November, so sometimes it’s worth the wait.
I have to assume you are referring to natural lighting of course.
Early morning you will get a nice soft light that is great for portraits, sunset is also nice for contrasty work providing you have good lights, but overall I prefer the small window of time just after the sun has set.
Ultimately, you can get great photo’s anytime of day, so it’s best to talk over what you are aiming for with the photographer.
I do wedding photography occasionally for certain clients. There are a lot of great wedding photographers, and I would be happy to refer you.
If you were set on the idea of hiring me, I would be willing to negotiate.
