I came to Will with some ideas about a photoshoot that would help compliment my image as an actor. Will completely understood the image I wanted and the feel of the photos, then inputting his own ideas he came up with some absolutely perfect shots. The best thing about the shots and final images is that they were exactly what I wanted, Will listened to my ideas and found exactly what I was looking for, and then some.
Working with Will was easy. He makes you feel comfortable, at ease and you feel like you’ve known him for years. He knows what looks good and knows how to achieve it. He is very professional before, during and after the shoot and communication is a key element to that professionalism. The quality of his images are second to none and his editing skills are just as exceptional. He is a delight to work with and I hope that we can build a long lasting relationship and work together in the future.
We couldn’t be happier with the photos and the standard of Will’s work. We would have no hesitation in using him again or recommending him to anyone as he captures beautiful moments from the stage and is an easy-to-work-with and professional photographer.
Will created the perfect balance of a relaxed but focussed atmosphere, allowing us to rapidly achieve some fantastic results. He very quickly understood what I was looking for, and his eye for creativity and attention to detail allowed us to create something that really stood out from the crowd in a very short space of time. All in all, Will’s service was exceptionally good value for money and I’m very much looking forward to working with him again in the future.
I find one of the most challenging things to do as an actor is to be myself. It is one thing to step inside the skin of a character and sell it to an audience, it is another thing to have to sell myself. When having photos taken for the purpose of self promotion, i.e. headshots, websites etc. you have to take the mask off and just be an honest version of yourself. The same “you” that walks into an audition setting or a meeting after say; getting off a crowded tube, running in late or just having hair that won’t cooperate that particular morning. Capturing this level of honesty and giving a two dimensional image the characteristics of the three dimensional person is daunting. Will Patrick understands this, he was able to make the entirety of my shoot with him feel like I was having coffee with an old friend as we walked around, stopping for the occasional photo to highlight the memory of our time together and not to get business done. He has a way of nurturing an environment that is controlled and comfortable so that you don’t feel like the subject of a photoshoot. As such the pictures are natural, spontaneous and organic, and somehow capture and highlight me in candid moments that reflect the kind of energy and personality I have when I enter a space. I cannot recommend Will Patrick Photography highly enough.
