“Lifestyle” is the thread which runs through my work. Striving to catch a glimpse of everyday life rather than setting it up. Sometimes I try to capture the feel of a town or area, which for example, can be useful for property companies who want some material to use on their websites or promotional material.
People walking through the streets, chatting over a coffee. A signpost to the river, or cherry blossoms in a local park, are the kinds of thing that look good. Representing an area in a positive way means showing that people live and thrive there, and that is exactly what I strive to do in a lifestyle shoot.
