"Outsourcing has allowed me to be more creative and shoot more which equals making more dollars!"

Can you tell us how you got started in photography?
Five years ago I was jobless and made some life goals. I wanted to travel the world, have career flexibility, make good income and be in a position where I could live anywhere in the world! Wedding Photography gave me all these things and that's how and why I started!

 

What was the first camera you ever purchased?
A Canon 7D

 

What's the latest piece of equipment you bought?
A Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens

 

On average how many pictures do you take per wedding?
Approximately 3000 frames for 13 hours of shooting.

How do you find inspiration?
My inspiration comes from my surroundings. Focusing on country weddings I like to find framing from my surrounds and work with different types of light and filters through dust, trees and natural elements.

 

What would be your dream assignment and where would it be?
I would love to do an outback Australian Elopement amongst cattle yards with the use of helicopters and motorbikes.

 

How do you spend your day away from the camera?
I love to get outside and work in the bush. Mustering cattle, riding horses, taking in fresh air. This is also a great way to draw inspiration.

How much time did you spend editing each week before The Image Salon?
My whole week!

 

Why did you decide to outsource? Why did you choose The Image Salon?
I chose to outsource to gain more time to do projects that were/are important to me. Such as documenting and sharing stories about life in the Australian Bush and raising awareness about the issues that rural Australians face. The Image Salon was the third outsourcing group I tried and i'm glad I found them!

 

Now that you outsource, how has your business benefited from the extra time you have?
It's allowed me to be more creative and shoot more which equals making more dollars!
