More about Ernest W....
What do you love about your job?
Not matter how many shoots I do, each one is different because of the people involved. I love that moment after the first few test shots when the client and I 'click' (I stand by that photography pun) and everything is fun from there on.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Most of my shoots involve people (portraits, weddings) and I always like to take a few minutes to find out about the people involved. What do they like? Do they like lots of color or faded tones? What are their interests? What do they want their photos to look like? I try to gauge their personality and deliver accordingly. If children are involved, patience is the key. I take a few shots and then show them the camera. Usually, that's when they come alive, seeing themselves on the little screen and then we get the best poses.
