Kelvins firmly believes “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your whole life”.
There is nothing more rewarding than bringing a building to life by capturing it in the right light at the right time of day. Each project requires a tailor made approach and needs to be planned carefully. So much time, effort and money goes into a building project, it deserves to be captured at its very best.
Capturing someone’s inner character is both challenging and rewarding. It is so important to put the person being photographed at ease. Nice lighting techniques are extremely important but the bond between photographer and subject is equally paramount. Having your portrait immortalised should be a fun and enjoyable experience!
Landscape photography is a true passion. Sometimes a location may have to be visited several times before the lighting conditions are right to photograph it. You definitely need to be disciplined, plan well in advance and have plenty of patience. Seeing my Landscape work in National Geographic this year has made it all worthwhile.
