Inspire

Louise works with small independent brands on styled shoots to create unique campaign or editorial images.  From initial concept, through to the actual shoot itself, there are various stages and processes to go through.  Louise’s Inspire session will give an overview of this creative journey, culminating in a styled kids fashion shoot where participants will have the opportunity to photograph the models and clothing in their own unique way.

A self-taught photographer, Louise is passionate about capturing emotion and mood in her imagery, and obsessed with the interplay between pockets of light and deep shadow.  A self confessed lazy lens changer, Louise tends to decide on a particular prime lens for a specific job and then doesn’t swap it for an entire session.  She shoots professionally with a Canon 5Diii and typically the 35mm f1.4 L   The majority of her personal work is taken with a mirrorless Fuji X-H1.  The rest of her time is spent home educating her children, trying to train her errant puppy, and drinking tea.  She lives near Canterbury, East Kent.
