Inspiration images and expectations

October 08, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Meet Ryan & Monique, they came to me for a couples shoot a few weeks ago.  This was an easy shoot to do.  Gorgeous people, gorgeous makeup (done by Monique herself), gorgeous fiery red hair and a nice relaxed atmosphere.  Monique came to me as a referral and had very specific ideas about the type of shoot she wanted.  Lots of pinterest sharing prior to the session made it really simple to understand the type of session this couple wanted. 

So I wanted to chat today about inspiration images and client expectations.  I love it when people come to me with inspiration images, it not only gives me a guide as to how this person wants me to photograph them but also allows me to add my own touch to these images to really make them unique to that person and true to my style.  Sometimes it is a little tricky though.  I'm predominately a studio photographer, so if I'm given images of people in the great outdoors, I will do my best to recreate the feel/look from the image but obviously, I don't have a waterfall or paddock with horses in my studio.   Of course it can be organised to do a location shoot (love doing locations!) but when choosing inspiration images, you need to be realistic in your expectations.  If you really want to have some sunset silhouette portraits done, then obviously your shoot will need to be outside at sunset with no rain and minimal cloud cover.  Location shoots are awesome but you are at the mercy of the elements.

At the end of the day, inspiration images are just that...inspiration.  A starting point to design your perfect session and to create your unique images.

Want to style a photoshoot for you and your partner that is totally unique to you???  Give me a call at Wilomark Music & Imagery on 62804220 to discuss your special shoot.
