not all about equipment

While I’ve done my share of weddings and portraits, my true photography love is still fashion photography.

I have been lucky enough to work with some really great, talented people. Some of which I still work with after many years.

I thought I would share some of my favourite images with you in this post and show you that expensive camera equipment isn't always the only route

I took this shot many (many) years ago and it is still one of my absolute favourites. I love everything about this shot – the colours and the dark mood. At the time, I didn’t have a lot of fancy equipment. Just simply a camera, a lens and an inexpensive flash. I had no fancy  lighting equipment and we were literally hiding from security while trying to get the perfect shot.  (fun times!)

Morale of the story – you don’t always need a lot of expensive equipment to take great photos. Whats more important is having the eye for photography.  Inspiration is all around us (I’ll talk about that later!) but you do need to think about what makes a great shot, and of course, what is your client looking for.  Happy clients = rebookings!
