I have to say, I do LOTS of property work.... Interior photography, architectural photography, and loads of exterior photography... to be used in area guides and sales brochures when developers want to show a new development in all its glory with its cool surroundings. I get to roam the streets and do what I do best.... SKULK! ;) capture natural situations, people and environments. This is when i get to use my Fuji X-Pro1 and Fuji XT1, because they are light, almost unnoticable and yet beautiful image quality! .... so next time you see a guy on a scooter whizzing past you with 2 cameras hanging off him .... smile please!! ;)
1 shot from a recent photography commission where I had to highlight 'the people behind the places' around Carnaby Street in London. I love these sort of jobs.... where you need to blend in with people very quickly, so they forget and be themselves.... armed with my beloved Fuji X-Pro1 I was able to quietly click away... I hope you can feel the Intensity that i felt watching this head chef working away.
Its amazing how important that first impression can be of a person you meet for the first time or intend on possibly meeting for the first time. Thanks to business owners wanting to appear more 'client friendly' and interactive these days, I find myself doing more and more Staff Profile Photography shoots, Commercial Portrait photography and even Personal Profile Photography. Everyone has a website, Facebook page, Blog, Twitter account etc etc and so the need to display yourself in your best light has never been more important. People are often surprised how quickly I can rock up with my kit create something striking of them and their team on their own business premises or in a location of choice. London is and amazing and powerful backdrop, so I use it whenever possible! So ... if you feel like you and your team deserve some fresh portrait photography in London or anywhere else for the fresh new year.... give me a shout! ;)
