Family Photography Common Questions and Answers
What equipment do you use?
I’m often asked what I shoot with and carry with me.
- Nikon d700 DSL
- Leica M6
- Minolta Autocord TLR
- Nikon 50mm f1.4 G AF-S Lens
- Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 G AF-S ED Lens
- Nikon 85mm f1.4 G AF-S Lens
- Nikon 60mm f2.8 G AF-S ED Micro Lens
- Sekonic Light Meter
This is not everything I carry to all jobs – I have a Fuji x100, two speedlights with wireless triggers and a HUGE 80cm continuous light source – I tend to use this lamp more in the winter months but it can be helpful in all sorts of homes.
Do you offer work experience, assistant work?
Unfortunately no. I really love photography and am passionate about it. I do want to try and encourage students to take up the profession – BUT I work best alone. My work is quite sensitive and I think that a assistant who wasn’t in step with my approach or my clients expectations would be a hindrance to the shoot.
