2014 was a year of huge growth for me – both personally and photographically – and I believe much of my photo-growth journey is thanks to the lovely Ashleigh of the Blonde Silhouette; fashionista, stylist, blogger, breathtaking beauty and fabulous friend. Shooting regularly with Ashleigh challenges me to keep my work fresh, adapt to difficult lighting situations and find ways to highlight the details that make an outfit pop. Since all of these are situations I deal with at each wedding I shoot, I’ve become a faster thinker, a more intuitive shooter and generally a better photographer, in a stack of ways that can be applied to benefit my wedding and portraiture clients. There are great lessons to be learned from fashion!
I’m also extremely excited to announce that I will be officially taking bookings for fashion clients in 2015 – if you’re a model looking for portfolio images, a designer with a new line to be photographed or a blogger in need of some amazing editorial outfit posts, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I’d love to see what we could create together. Ashleigh and I are also available as a package deal for all your styling and photography needs, and we would love to hear from brands in need of creative, emotive images for their products.
Here’s to learning more from fashion in 2015!
