I like to have fun in the studio, and unless necessary I wouldn't say I like to count people in when pressing the trigger, Photography where the model is unaware sometimes turns out the best.
Sarah, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I have always loved photography from the age of about 5. I started training in graphic design when I left school, but feel into work in an engineering world. Last year I woke up and thought to myself no, this is not the career for me, and so followed my dream. You have to be passionate about what you are doing; art has a certain amount of your soul attached to it when you create it.
Who is your inspiration in life Sarah? How do you keep inspired?
Clive Arrowsmith! He's a great photographer, and I had the pleasure of meeting him in March at the photography show in Birmingham.
We all make mistakes Sarah; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Communication is key, making sure you both know where you are meant to be and what the result will be.
Sarah, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
I create forms online that clients can fill in and submit, emailing myself and the client a copy for our records.
Please tell us, Sarah, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
Don't take on too much work, make sure you have downtime and can manage all the editing required in post-production.
Sarah, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
With regards to lighting, putting the prop light on and moving it around so I could see where the shadows were falling.
Sarah, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Having my work published in the Times newspaper as well as local magazines and papers.
Sarah, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Having a model who was not afraid to try out new ideas.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Don't give up and follow your dreams. Photography is a feeling.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
