Why Us.


Now the answers.

Whether you’re looking for someone to photograph your family, or a photographer who can capture the essence of your child’s personality, after a few minutes browsing this page you will know everything you need to know.

 

How Do You Choose The Right Photographer? Things You Need To Ask:

If you’re like most people, you probably get a bit overwhelmed as you go through the Yellow-Pages and realise there are a lot of photographers to choose from. How do you decide who to go to? Well, don’t worry, we’re going to clue you in on the VITAL THINGS you must ask of any photographer.

 

No Matter Who You Decide To Be Your Photographer, These Are Things You NEED To Know…

Our goal is simple: we want your photographs to be perfect. Therefore, regardless of whether you decide to have our studio create your photographs or not, we still want you to know about the things most photographers DON’T want you to know about.

 

“All Portraits Are Created Equal.”

Wrong! Nothing could be further from the truth. If you’re at all like most people, you’ve probably had this question going through your mind: “How do I choose the right photographer?” In fact, you may even have thought of someone in your family – an uncle, a grandparent, even a friend – who is a bit of an amateur photographer. Why not just have that person create that special photograph?

 

Question: “Just Suppose Someone Were To Create The Perfect Portrait – One Where You And Your Loved Ones Looked Better Than Ever, Happier Than Ever – A Portrait That Meant The World To You – What Would That Be Worth?”

 

No price tag can be put on your families memories. They are and always will be priceless. So, why would you ever want to gamble with those memories?  It’s just a question of whether you believe a portrait of your family could really mean that much to you. If you were sick, and had to go to a doctor, would you want the “cheapest” doctor, or the best one? Well, there’s really no question. It’s the same thing with your family’s memories. You can certainly find a cheaper photographer in town. But there are other things to consider than just price…

 

The Photographer You Choose Should Care About YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR MEMORIES, Not Just About “Making Money” Off You.

Why did I chose to become a professional photographer? Because I finally realised that all the money in the world meant nothing to us if we didn’t feel like we were making a difference. I Realised That Memories Were Priceless .

 

I didn’t become a photographer because I like to take pictures. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the “art” of photography, but that’s NOT the reason I first picked up a camera. As a child, my mother and father didn’t have many photographs taken. My entire time growing up, I can’t remember a single photograph being taken of the three of us together. But, early in my career, I created a portrait of my mom and dad together. I cherish that photograph – it means the world to me. As I grew up, and my father became ill, I cherished the memory of the moment that photograph was created even more. Now that my father and mother have passed away, that photograph is priceless. I can’t even imagine what it would be like not to have that photograph sitting in my living room. I look at it every single day – it is one of my most prized possessions.

 

I Only Wish I Had A Photograph Of All Of Us Together. That Would Be One Of The Most Priceless Things to me.

Time is the one thing that none of us have enough of.  It’s the one thing that money can’t buy.  It’s the one thing that we all would give just about anything for. Through photography, we can hold on to the moments in our lives that we wish could last forever.  And, if it’s done correctly, these same photographs can become almost like works of art that we display in our homes for everyone to see and share.

 

Don’t Make The Decision As To Who Will Photograph Your Family or Children Until You Chat With Me. There Are Things You’ll Want To Ask The Photographers.

And This is SO Important:  All Of You Feel Totally Comfortable In Front Of The Camera! Do you know ANYONE who feels totally comfortable in front of a camera? I’ll bet you don’t. we don’t. Nearly everyone we’ve ever met tells us the same thing: “I never look natural in pictures.” The last thing you want is a photograph where you or your family members have that fake “posed” look on your face. That’s why it’s so important that you feel very natural and comfortable with your photographer. Just think of how great your family would look if your best friend was creating the photograph. They would all look so happy and natural! I take pride in developing very close relationships with all my clients, and their entire family.  Plus, I understand the “psychology” of photography.  Learning the technical aspects – what lenses to use, what lighting looks best, how clothing adds and subtracts weight in a portrait – all of those things are only the tip of the iceberg. Without being able to make each and every one of your family members look and feel comfortable (and natural) in a portrait, all those technical things would amount to nothing.

 

“There’s No Rush To Have A Family Portrait Created Right Now.”

You know how things are. If you don’t pick up the phone right now, and at least call me to chat about your family portrait, you will probably get swamped with other things, and forget all about it. Then, before you know it, a year – two years – five years have gone by. How different will your family be then?  You see, time is ticking…. and it’s never going to stop. First, Your Child Takes His or Her First Step. Next, Learns To Ride A Bike. Later, Gets A Driver’s Licence. Graduates. Gets Married. Starts A Family Of His or Her Own. These are precious times, and although things will change, this moment never has to slip from your fingers. Don’t put this off. You know how life is. We put things off, and before we know it, everything has changed. If your life is half as crazy as mine is, year after year you find yourself frustrated at the things you wanted to do, and never got done. A family portrait is something you deserve.

Why Your Family Portrait Will Become More Valuable To You Than Anything Else In Your Home:

Do you have a photograph of your family that, if you were running from your burning home, would be the one thing you save (other than your family members, of course) on the way out? Now, I’m not talking about a “snapshot” that was taken during a family holiday, I’m talking about a wonderful photograph, created by a professional photographer, that not only captures your family’s true bonds and relationships, but also does so in a way that you’d be proud to display openly in your home for the rest of your life.

 

It’s Not Too Late. This Moment, Right Now, Can Be Held Onto For The Rest Of Your Life – For You To Share With Family And Friends.

You don’t have to make a big decision right now. You don’t have to choose your photographer – you don’t even have to decide that now is the time for your family portrait. Just take one small step toward holding onto your family’s happiest moments RIGHT NOW.Just Call My Studio, And We’ll Chat.

Collin.

    positive review  My son and daughter recently had a dance photo shoot with Collin. I absolutely can not recommend him enough. He made both my children feel so comfortable, he talked through the shoot with them and allowed them to share their own ideas with him. He didn't rush the photo shoot itself and kept going until my (perfectionist) son was happy. The viewing process again was incredible, and Collin allowed us plenty of time to decide on the photos, we took a while because there were so many amazing shots of them both. I am beyond delighted with the photos we decided upon, as are my very hard to please teens! Thank you again Collin xxx

    positive review  My daughter Maddi has recently had a dance photo shoot with Collin and we were overjoyed with the images Collin gave us a very warm welcome and was very friendly and patient. We didn’t feel rushed at all and Collin was eager to try many different looks. When we returned for our viewing he had captured Maddi’s beautiful looks and talent to a “T” in the images and needless to say they brought a tear or 2 to my eye !! It’s easy to see why Collin is a multi award-winning photographer and his expertise and experience speaks volumes. Many thanks we had a wonderful time.

    positive review  Collin was incredibly friendly and put both myself and my daughter at ease. I'd booked for a dance photoshoot to try and instill a little more confidence in her. The photos speak for themselves and she had great fun doing them! A bonus for her was meeting Pippa- who ended up making a guest appearance in the photos!
