What ZUZU Photography is all about...
I could tell you all about my first job at a high street photographers, or my time at University studying the art form, but the basic facts won't convey what photography means to me, or what it means I can give to you.
The time we are living in now is full of amazing art, graphics and imagery. When you choose a photographer it's important that their vision meets yours, or helps you achieve something that you can't quite visualise.
Photographs are the building blocks that help shape the history of our lives. Snapshots, candid moments, events, and even structured narratives, all tell a story about who we are and who we want to be. It's about celebrating who we are today, our hopes for tomorrow, so that one day we can look back on it all and re-live and re-tell whole chapters.
When I photograph a person or a family, it isn't simply down to good lighting, its about connection and honesty. My aim is to find the small gestures that makes up a person, a smile that conveys who they are and make all those that know that smile mirror it when they see it. I want to see unique bonds that exist between family members, relationships that are simple and everyday, yet at the same time, unlike any other in the world.
Over the years I have come to realise that, like snowflakes, no two families are the same, are ever changing, a little fragile and beautiful beyond belief.
