What do you love about your job?
Every project is different, there is no textbook that can give you all the answers. There are rules but every movie or image that is "great" doesn't always follow the 'rules.' It is up to the photographer can create a world.
If a photographer followed all the 'rules' they would never take a photo. That's why I love it, you can be free to do whatever is needed for each scene.
There is so much problem solving required, and being able to work within the environment and brief constraints.
I love the creative process, from planning and executing the final image. The storyboarding, the shooting and the editing of the photos.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done lots of university assignments, my favourite assignment was completed last year. Unfortunately, It was completed in the coronavirus lockdowns. So it wasn't in some outlandish setting, nor with an amazing cast of actors, nor did I have a tutor look over my shoulder. It was at home, and I was filming a video portrait of my dog Bella. A very disobedient rescue dog who hates the sound of a camera.
I captured great looking shots that incorporated different photography styles.
But what made it special was that I spent 10 minutes for every 10-second shot. As I had to slowly ease my way to Bella the dog. As any wrong sound from the camera and she would run.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
The highest honour I have received are distinctions and High distinctions in my university projects.
A fun fact about this photographer
I used to use Autofocus and auto settings all the time because I had no idea how to use a camera, it was very daunting. But 4 years later, I only use the manual settings.
