Croeso i Elsie Grace Photography
Photography is many things to different people but to me it is storytelling and I want to help you create the story that you want to tell. Whether sitting for a portrait, requiring publicity shots for your latest product, constructing an album cover, recording a once in a lifetime event; whatever your needs may be, a photograph isn’t just a chance to paint something arresting with light, it is part of your journey.
It took me 20 years to shape my own journey towards doing what I love, having spent time as a Pharmacologist, Theatre Director, Writer, and even a Waste Strategy and Innovation Manager. However, this knowledge base, this flexibility to move between subjects, people and arenas, means I am as comfortable working in a corporate setting as in a theatre rehearsal room.
I understand that your requirements and YOU are unique, and I will discuss with you in depth exactly what you want to get out of the session, whether that is to get the job done to an exact specification, experiment creatively, or something in between. It is about capturing your narrative and connecting with you.
Taking an outstanding photograph requires skill and technique but the extra ingredient is the people involved and the story behind the photo and that is what drives me to do what I do. I am based in mid-Wales, but my work takes me across all parts of the United Kingdom and I love meeting people from all walks of life. So if you are a potential customer, another photographer or you just want to say hi, don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
Why Choose Me?
There are lots of great photographers out there – its a crowded market – and since digital it is increasingly easy to for people from all walks of life to professionalise, especially as we now live in such an image conscious world. You likely have a really powerful camera in your pocket with you at all times, so why spend the money, right?
But the technology only takes you so far, the most important thing for anyone looking to book a photographer, beyond if you like their pictures, is to be comfortable and sure that they have your best interests and needs in mind; that they know how to pose you to get the best portrait, how to relax your shoulders and make you feel sublime in front of the camera, someone who understands your product and wants you to succeed, someone who is a pleasure to interact with at an event not a buzzing nuisance – it is not just about a few in focus pictures.
So my advice whether you choose me or someone else is to talk to them and make sure you are a good fit, photos are always better in partnership.
