When I started my photography business, I had quite a mixed portfolio. Corporate photography, which included portraits, locational photography for annual reports and brochures, copy work, some product photography, and photography of various dwellings, shops and interiors.
I later started photographing schools, debutante balls, family portraits and finally weddings which became the principal element of my business, and remained so for 20 years.
Recently, a previous wedding client contacted me about photographing exteriors and interiors of dwellings for a building company which he is managing. My first reaction was that of trepidation, having not taken this kind of photography for so long and not wanting to possibly disappoint my client.
After some consideration and research, I decided to submit a quote and the company accepted.
The first property was a renovated cottage in West Brunswick, so armed with every bit of photographic gear I could muster up, I went on assignment.
The first thing that occurred to me was that I had time to analyze the surroundings in detail and time to frame each scene. After all, I was now in a world where the photographer has to carefully adjust parallel and vertical lines.This was a real luxury one doesn’t have when photographing weddings or busy people. It’s also a quiet and peaceful form of photographic endeavor.
Variety is the spice of life, so I’m very happy to have been given the opportunity to work in this field of photography again. Thanks, Theo!
