I have a very broad range of experience when it comes to public events, including talks, arts events and community gatherings. I adore shooting public events because they can be so fast-paced and exciting; being able to react quickly and pick out points of interest is a challenge I relish! My highlight from the past year was photographing the first ever Trans Pride South West march through Bristol. As a member of the trans community this felt really special and empowering for me, and I consider it such a privilege that I was able to capture it on camera. In the past year I've also photographed public art installations, interviews and talks.
I believe a key aspect to my approach is my documentary-style photography. My favourite images are those which show people caught up in a moment; laughing, reacting to one another, and simply being themselves. I like to be able to connect with the space around me so that I can convey authentically how it felt to be there, rather than getting all up in people's business and insisting that they smile. Above all at events I try to be unobtrusive, allowing people to get on with enjoying themselves, and allowing myself to create an authentic record of that particular moment in time.
STANDARD RATE £70 per hour | REDUCED RATE £45 per hour
This covers travel within Bristol. If you are planning a long event and would like to know more about my day rate, please get in touch.
What's the deal with the Standard Rate and the Reduced Rate?
I offer two different rates because I want my photography to be accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation.
If you are able to pay the standard rate I ask that you please pay it, as this helps keep me afloat. However I understand that not everyone will be able to afford this and so I also offer a reduced rate, covering exactly the same services. If you are using the reduced rate, I ask that in exchange you help promote my business in non-financial ways - eg. post reshares, reviews, recommendations.
