London Photographer : My Photography Wish List for 2014

February 28, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

So now January and February have been and gone in a haze of portraiture I've had a bit of time to think about my photography wish list for the year.  

Outdoor portraits ... One of the things I'm really keen to do is work on outdoor portraiture.   I get to work a lot indoors with crisp white backgrounds providing studio quality portraits.   What I don't get much chance for however is outdoor work,  mostly the weather can be against it, the  English  Spring and Summer being what it is.   Getting the chance to get good outdoor work is a must. I have some great work already but it's a style I'd love to develop more.

 
Weddings .... which photographer doesn't want to shoot a wedding.  Nerve wracking to be sure it's an extension of the Bar and BatMitvah work. The chance to really capture that story from beginning to end would be great.  If you are having a wedding and need a photographer let me know.
 
 
I'd also like to take some real art shots.  I'm mostly a photographer for the reasons I state in my About page but there are times when I want to take my time,  consider the setting and produce the magazine style shot; all lighting, makeup and costume.   I've got venues and content in mind, all I need now is willing models and time ...
 
 
Top of the list for a fun day with some one would be a Wreck The Dress shoot.  If you're not familiar with the phrase it's normally when a bride put her wedding dress back on and has a photo shoot to 'wreck' it.   Normally near a beach or similar it could be in a muddy field,  scrap yard or indoors as a food fight or paint war.   It's getting a bit late in the Winter now but if it gets round to snowing and is the right day I'd love to do a Wreck The Dress shoot in the Snow.  It's not the only way to wreck a dress but for the shoot I have in mind is the best ...
 
 
On a more serious note working on portraiture,  a great portrait should tell a story be well composed and carefully prepared.  There can be no better subjects for faces that tell stories than Older people.  Faces that  just have so much to tell from simply looking down the lens. I honestly wish I was the photographer I am now whilst my own Grandparents were still with me I'd have a many pictures of them as I do if my kids ...If I could only get my own parents to sit still for long enough ...
 
It's not a bad list of things to want to do and it would certainly keep the creative juices flowing ...
 
Is there a particular type of picture you've always wanted to have, maybe we could arrange to take it ...

Let mew know if you are interested in any typr of photography here and maybe we can tick one of theses off the list together.
