Sony Europe Imaging Ambassadors

We are very proud to represent Sony as European Imaging Ambassadors for both Wedding Photography and Filming.    In a totally unregulated industry it must be very hard for couples to choose who to work with on their wedding day.  We fully understand the huge responsibility that we have – weddings are fast-paced with no second chances to capture critical moments and precious memories with your family and friends.   We are trusted by Sony, Rotolight, and Profoto (all innovative and industry-leading imaging companies) to represent them and their brands.   We want our clients to relax and know that they are in safe hands because we are the only supplier whom you entrust with your story and whose work you see after the wedding day. 

Sony has a fantastic platform called Alpha Universe where you can learn more about the kit and how their various Ambassadors use it on a daily basis as professional photographers and videographers.   Here are some articles that we have created with them:

Authenticity in Wedding Portraiture

“The photos I take become memories,” photographer Kate Kirkman explains. “A wedding day is the most important of a couple’s life, and when you start to think about that day, you think about the moments in the photos and they become real. You can remember the sounds, the smells, the emotions. Without those photos, those memories can fade. The photos act as visual triggers for those memories, so there is an enormous amount of trust that a bride and groom place in their photographer.”

 

Sony Alpha Series and Food Photography

“One of the things that draws me,” she continues, “are the intricacies in food photography. It can look simple, but there’s a tremendous amount that goes into it, both technically and aesthetically. At the top level you might have a food stylist and a prop stylist, but more regularly you’ll style it yourself. Composition and colour theory are very important, and so is lighting. Some images are uncluttered, others have great complexity, meaning from dish to dish and restaurant to restaurant, each food story is unique.”

 

Fine Art Wedding Photography

The years I spent at university studying Fine Art and History of Art really came into their own when I started my photography journey, and continue to provide me with the skills needed for photography to this day. I take a lot from the fine art world.
