I have been following Lisas work for awhile now on social media and have always seen her work as one I aspire towards. Both her studio & outdoor portraits are stunning and I love the quality in here images.
Lisa has recently got training to do newborn photography which is something I am interested in doing in the future. Her portfolio offers various different props, poses and backdrops which makes her portfolio look great as it shows she has alot of choice for the client to acheive the look/style of images they want.
Her outdoor portaits of childen and familes have a natural feel to them, in both the poses of the subject but also the colours and depth in her images. Her images are unique to her and I recongnise her work when I see it. Not only that Lisa is regulary undating her website and other social platforms which I feel is so imortant and makes a photographer business look so much more professional!
“My service is special, I provide styling, I bring in the elements of the outdoors, I use the natural gifts available from Mother Nature, flowers, leaves, twigs and berries can all be incorporated into your shoot inspired by the seasons. I also provide beautiful vintage style dresses for little girls who just love to dress up! We will, of course have a good chat about this before our shoot. My shoots are completed with love and dedicated to you and your children. Your session will be for you, about you and will match your personality.”
Another great thing about Lisas work is her website, it is so easy to use, everything is clear and easy to read and her images are displayed beautifully. Inparticular I really like what she has done with her pricing page and its the easiest and clearest Ive ever come across, the different packages are layed out in sperate boxes desplaying what is on offer of each package and her website even lets you book in with her directly through the website.
Last night I went for a visit to Chan and Alans, id rang them previously and discussed the possibility of looking into some images Alan used to take when he was more into photography. I thought some of the images Alan had taken would work well with my edit. After a cuppa and a natter, we set in search for the images, Alan had a full trunk full of slides. Now, I am a massive novice when it comes to this kind of stuff, I have only ever had experience with digital photography and had never had a situation where I have needed to know about this sort of stuff.
We spent a good few hours rooting through the trunk and found lots of images from various rally car events that alan was into at that time, some family snaps, holidays photos and also some odd ones of organs. Although these images were before he met Chan, I loved looking through them, as it showed a specific time in Alans live, which was very similar to what it is now, exploring shows, travelling, spending time with family. I am keen to explore the slides further, however, there are SO many to go through (around 1,700!). Alan suggested he edit them down as it was a job he has been meaning to do for awhile. So I went away with a few I’d found interesting and have left him to it. If the slides do end up working well with my project I have had several thoughts of things I could do with them possibly in my exhibition. Maybe have them on a projector next to my images, or make a light box where the audience can interact with them.
