Lights, camera, action…

A couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough for the sun to shine on our Spring Summer shoot, a rarity considering the current weather conditions. We talk to our lovely photographer Phillip Waterman about getting the right looks and what really makes a great photo, great.

What got you into photography? A realisation that I couldn’t draw or paint! Also, many years ago now, I joined a local camera club with some quite inspirational members, it wasn’t a group of older people! I then discovered I could make this into a career!


What’s the most amazing location you’ve been to?I think it has to be Cape Town. Such a beautiful place and it wasn’t what I was expecting. The landscape is wonderful.

If you weren’t jet setting around taking pictures, what would you do? Not sure really. I am interested in architecture and shooting buildings…. so I think an architect.

How do you spend your days off? Usually with my family exploring the countryside or on holiday. We visit San Diego quite a bit as my wife is from there, some amazing beaches!


What really makes a great photo, great?I think the composition and lighting are key to creating a beautiful picture. When the light is right on location, you can achieve some amazing results. We were very lucky to have some great light on the Pretty Eccentric shoot day.
