ABOUT ME

How would you describe your style?

It can be best be describes as fun, intimate and from a differing perspective. By this I mean I endeavour to engage with my subjects in such a way that best captures their personality. I am known for my relaxed style, judiciously using humour to make my subjects feel relaxed in front of the camera. 

 

Are you part time or full-time?

Although I am part time, and do not have the portfolio of a full-time photographer, this does not mean I do not produce professional results. I believe that my work testifies to that. As a result though, my booking times may be a little more restricted. Nonetheless, most sittings would occur on weekends, which is true for many professional photographers.

 

PORTRAIT SITTINGS

What should I wear to a portrait sitting?

Obviously comfortable clothing, but it is important that your clothing is muted in tone, using solid colours rather than strong patterns. If it is a group session, it is important that your choices do not clash.
A conservative style of clothing is also preferred. Think whether you would be happy to see yourself in the outfit in 20 years time.

I live in ….… , will you travel to my location?

Although I live in the Macarthur region, I am willing to travel to any destination in the greater Sydney area, although a travel fee might be incurred. I'll gladly accept any wedding shoot on location on a tropical island . :D

 

Do you have a studio?

Currently Stonemeadow Photography does not have a studio and only provides location shooting. This is conducive to my style in that I prefer shooting more informal settings, using natural light (I do have flash equipment), as this better captures the personality of my subjects.

 

TEACHING

What experience do you have in teaching photography?

I have been an educator for over 25 years, teaching in a high school, both locally and internationally for 20 years. As a result have developed the ability to take any subject area and explain it in a concise, easy to understand manner, no matter what level the student is at.
I have also conducted lessons in photography skills to students at high school level.
Rest assured, whether you meet me one-on-one, or in a small group, I will be able to help you improve your photographic skills.

 

ORDERING

I do not see the size I want for an image?

I generally only show the sizes that are most common for people to order. (who wants to see a thousand choices to sort through).
I am able to provide other sizes, whether they be slightly different aspect ratio, or you wish to purchase a very large print f or your all. Please contact me, and I can make it available for you to see next time you visit the page.
