My name is Sarah Green, and my wonderful husband Grahame Green set up SHOT Photography some years ago, and I joined him in 2014.
These were his words, and they hold true for myself as well.
"For the most part self taught, I have worked and studied hard over the past few years in order to stand alongside those that have been in this profession a lot longer. This has become my work ethic - to push myself beyond my comfort zone.
As photographers, we have the great advantage to be creative at all times, and each shoot is an opportunity to choreograph a wonderful experience and be problem solvers. I could be on an outdoor shoot where I'm at the mercy of the elements or maybe on a badly lit interior shoot, but to me this means it's time to break out some umbrellas or pull in some extra lights and to get creative, and work with the surroundings rather than against them. If we want a controlled enviroment then we can retreat to the studio.
I like to test my abilities and not to turn down any photography challenge that arises. I have found that every kind of photography I have undertaken thus far has had elements of skill that I can use in other areas.
These past fews years, I have met many wonderful people in all sorts of environments and settings, and have enjoyed working with them and with the opportunites and challenges that have faced me as a result, and always look forward to the reactions of those for whom I have worked or met when they see my work. "
Sadly, Grahame passed away in June 2021, and I miss him everyday, but I will continue the legacy of SHOT Photography in his memory that we worked so hard to build together, and to continue my love of photography with him by my side.
I often worked with Grahame, as his "glamourous assistant (!)", and we married in 2018 & took our own wedding photos!. More recently I was first shooter due to his failing health, and he was there as my "handsome assistant" instead!
I have been a photographer for most of my life, and my speciality is colourful people pictures, and I love Street Photography in my spare time.
On a shoot, I love interacting with people, and hope to bring out those wonderful smiles and put you at ease to ensure that you have the best experience possible, give you a fun time, and great photos! x
