A people photographer
At the heart of my photography is people.
I’m slightly unusual in that although I have a long experience of photographing portraits, most of my work always has been and continues to be published work that has appeared in books, magazines, newspapers, TV and for a host of companies. So if you Google me don’t be surprised if I turn up in a variety of places as a Kent-based commercial photographer (and if you’ve come here by mistake and are looking for that please go to timstubbings.com).
So, with most of my work being of people, I like to bring that experience into my portrait photography, underpinned by a professional qualification-based membership status under the British Institute of Professional Photography.
What makes me different?
There are a lot of Kent portrait photographers and there are a lot of good photographers around producing wonderful images. It’s a great time for people to be starting out in photography (I was an early convert to digital in 2003 and I don’t miss film at all) but I suppose when it comes down to choosing a photographer it’s a combination of their experience, personality and value for money.
The technical ability has to be a given for portrait photography, but what I also bring is a commercial eye – all of those editorial and location fashion assignments mean that I can work with you to get the best from your investment in the session and the prints or frames you purchase afterwards. I also put a lot into each portrait shoot. Prior to the shoot there is the research of the location and the planning; after the shoot there is the processing of the digital files, the preparation for your previews, book page layouts and dealing with the lab regarding your orders.
I like to use my editorial and commercial experience and passion for lighting by offering magazine-quality photoshoot. Although studio-trained and with a studio in Canterbury, I enjoy the freedom of getting out on location and my customers like this too.
