QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
WHAT KIT DO YOU USE?
I come equipped with an abundance of high quality professional Nikon camera gear (sorry but not sorry) you will not find Canon kit in my camera bag. I adore Nikon, I really do and if I am honest, Nikon produce a better colour that Canon. Although some may disagree. I have all of the photography bobs and bits that comes with being a professional wedding photographer. I have stylish camera bags that ensures that we blend in with your wedding guests and I will always use that as an excuse to justify having a Louis Vuitton bag as a camera bag.
DO YOU WORK WITH SECOND SHOOTERS AND ASSISTANTS?
Yes. I do work with a few carefully selected and highly trained second shooters and assistants. All highly talented and creative individuals. If I could get engaged for a 3rd time I would have these lovelies photograph my nuptials. I trust them that much and have trained them well.
I AM LOOKING FOR WORK AS A SECOND SHOOTER OR AS AN ASSISTANT, ARE THERE ANY EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES?
There are employment opportunities and I welcome interest in working for Camera & kit however please note I only work with second shooters who have university qualification (currently completing or completed) in photography.

CAN WE MAKE PRINTS FROM OUR USB AND IF SO, DO WE OWN THE COPYRIGHT?
Your high res files come with a licence giving permission for you to print.

Yes! I offer a fine art in house printing service using only the best photographic papers that galleries and museums use. You, your family and friends are able to purchase prints from your personal client gallery.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH PER YEAR?
Because of the hands on nature of my wedding work, and the attention I pay to each wedding and couple, I can really only offer a limited number of wedding commissions per year. So, to keep the level of quality of my work high I try to limit the number of weddings I shoot to around 25 - 30 weddings per year.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH SAME SEX WEDDINGS?
Yes, I do. Love is love and my camera is not an agent for reinforcing heteronormative scripts of love and romance.

Yes. Over insured I'd say.
