As a commercial photographer I get to meet all sorts of interesting people and businesses right across Wiltshire, and often much further afield. In fact I meet so many that I couldn’t possibly share all of them on the blog but now and again there is one that really stands out and needs to be shared.
This recent commercial photoshoot with violinist Lucy Pelger is one that I really wanted to share. It’s a perfect example of how avoiding the traditional corporate portrait style of photography and taking a more lifestyle approach can really allow the passion of the owner and personality of the business to shine through in the images. Of course there are some businesses that need more formal portraits and I’m more than happy to shoot these too but I do love the opportunity to really get to understand a business and get creative with their photography.
Lucy contacted me when she was new to the area and needed some images for the business she was about to launch. I like to take the time to really understand my clients businesses and it soon became apparent that it was important to Lucy that her images not only showed her passion for music but were also more personal and showed her as the warm and friendly person she is. As well as a series of relaxed portraits with and without her violin we decided that to including Lucy’s daughter in the photoshoot would really add the personal feel that we decided was important.
As you have probably gathered from the images Lucy is a music teacher. She teaches people of all ages but is especially keen to encourage a love of music in younger people and it certainly looks like her daughter is following in her footsteps!
