It’s no secret that I have a lot of clients with their own blogs or YouTube channels, and in most cases it’s the first time they’ve worked with a professional photographer. It can a little daunting to have a stranger pointing a DSLR at you when you’re used to your mum or significant other taking your photos. What are you supposed to wear? How do you pose? I appreciate that it might be overwhelming, so I thought I’d write this post or anyone who’s thinking of investing in a photoshoot soon… and no, it doesn’t have to be with me! (But, you know, I’m pretty good. Just saying.)
I went to the Lake District to photograph Sarah Weldon; YouTuber and founder of Oceans Project. Oh, and her dog, too. Her dog is adorable. I think documenting a client in their hometown makes the images that bit more special, like you're gazing at their roots and the place that shaped them into a person
On Saturday I went for a spontaneous shopping trip with my good friend and fellow YouTuber Natasha Summer. Of course, it's scientifically impossible for two bloggers/vloggers to meet up and not document the occasion in some format - so we ended up doing a photoshoot at New Cathedral Street.
