Type business: Full Time Professional Photographer
My photographic style: My approach to each picture I take is the same, beautifully lit, fresh pictures with lots of colour depth and a natural feel.
My greatest strengths: I pride myself in my ability to put people at ease, whether they are male, female, 8 or 80, I know what it feels like to be in front of the camera and I never lose sight of that.
I have been in photography: Five and a half years full time professional.
How I got started in photography: Photography was a hobby when I was growing up. At 26 years old I was made redundant from a marketing position with an academic publishers. They gave me a good redundancy package and so I thought 'now or never' and set myself up with a camera and started ringing around for work. It has taken some time to build a solid reputation but it has been worth every step.
My photographic skills: My key skills are making my subjects feel comfortable in front of the camera, as a consequence my portraits and events work show the person and event as they really are, capturing the essence of both.
My personality: I am an outgoing and sociable person with a real passion for what I do; I love to learn new skills and get very excited when I work. I am thoughtful and gain my strength from the calm of my office so that when I am out shooting I can give it my all, and always do! You will often see my whizzing around, keeping busy and enjoying life.
Geographic areas I cover: I am based in London but my work takes me up and down the country with some wedding assignments abroad.
Venues I frequently attend: For weddings, large country houses with plenty of outdoor space and wide landscapes or staircases for romantic shots. For events, large rooms with revolving coloured lighting for fast paced party style shots. For portraits, anywhere with a large window. For families, a park or garden where they feel comfortable.
I found inspiration from: Interesting light, wide open spaces and travelling inspires me.
Photographic training: BA Graphic and Media Design included a module on photography.
My interests outside photography: Cycling, walking, travelling.
Testimonials: "Dear Philippa, I can't thank you enough. As I said I am very uncomfortable in front of a camera but the images of all of us were so lovely. Our daughter loved them too and said she really enjoyed herself on our 'Simpsons sky' afternoon! My husband said you are very good at your job and that I would struggle to select the 'special' pictures for framing, and he was right. We want them all! Love and best wishes, Mrs Brown x"
"Thank-you for sending the photographs of our event so promptly - they are wonderful. Thank-you for being such a lovely colleague to work with and for your enthusiasm, good humour and creativity. I will recommend that my client thinks of you again and if they ever need a professional photographer I would have absolutely no hesitation in contacting you should the opportunity arise."
"I've just seen the fabulous photos and wanted to say what a fantastic job you have done. I think (you are) the best photographer I have met at any event - friendly, courteous and non intrusive! I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer in the future. Thank you for capturing the great fun we all had on Saturday night!"
"Have just looked at the pictures in more detail and enjoyed them even more. They are really fabulous."
Why I like the SWPP: I like being part of a body of photographers and the trade show and master classes every January are very informative and helpful.
Tagline: If you smile, they smile.
Future plans: To get better and better at my job.
