In today’s society with the proliferation of devices that can take reasonable photos simply, quickly and with no real requirement for an aptitude for photography, nearly all of us take photos of ourselves and friends without a second thought. Point and shoot photography as typified by mobile phones has made capturing images accessible to all, practically cost free and possibly most importantly, fun for all.
However, there is a significant disparity between the millions of snaps that are taken on a social basis - nights out, holidays etc and those that are required for commercial or professional purposes – and at its highest level, photography represents a coming together of expert technical understanding and artistic creativity and flair. To reach the pinnacle of your prowess as a photographer requires not only this skill set but also considerable experience and an empathy for your subject matter, whether you are creating an individual headshot for a personal profile or producing immaculate pictures of detailed jewellery for an advertising campaign.
