“Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” Imogen Cunningham 1883-1976

 

 

Ursula’s specialism and first love is portraits and she is very adept at getting the best from her subjects with her uncanny ability to help you feel relaxed (just give here a call and you’ll get the picture), her ability to tailor her approach to suit your needs and a sharp eye for detail to make sure you have everything covered. Ursula is equally comfortable with new born babies and managing directors, families and celebrities (Bob Geldof, Paul Smith, Julie Walters and Ken Bruce to name a few) so you can be sure you’re in good hands. Ursula believes that the secret of a great portrait is connecting with the person you are photographing so it’s really important to her that you feel free to be yourself – you might be surprised at how quickly she can help you to relax even though she has a camera in hand. Camera shy herself Ursula understands how awkward some people feel having their photograph taken and so finding some common ground over a cuppa is always a great start to a shoot. So if you’re feeling a little hesitant and have been putting off having photographs created (either for work or personal) get in touch with Ursula and challenge her to help you overcome CAS – camera avoidance syndrome! It could make a huge difference to how you see and feel about yourself.

 

“If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given, it is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.” Eve Arnold 1912 – 2012
