Hattie Young

I have worked as a professional photographer for almost 25 years, concentrating mainly on photographing people, and I love it. Although I no longer photograph weddings, the insight it gave me into how people behave in front of a camera has been invaluable, and has given me the intuition and ability to encourage and bring out the best in people.

It has been portraiture though that from a young age has always fascinated me. A shoot for me, whether social or corporate, is always a collaboration between me and my subjects. My approach is friendly and professional; as soon as you commission a portrait I take time to get to know you, discussing personality, experiences, favourite settings, clothes, likes and dislikes. My requisite for a successful portrait shoot is a happy and enjoyable experience for us all, and the results beautiful and professional, revealing the uniqueness and individuality of each person.
