Remote Shoots with Me.

I am now able to offer remote shooting to photographer’s world wide from my home studio in Wiltshire.

I have done several successful Remote shoots, I am thrilled with the results and I also have found them very rewarding, a great way to continue being creative and working when it’s not safe to do so currently. It is also a great way to work with creatives from all over the world from the comfort of your own home.

It is a different way of working than normal and of course will be new to many.

It is a slower way of working granted, therefore we work on getting good quality images together rather than quantity, a bit like shooting on a film camera.

I think this is a positive aspect in remote shooting as you can see the images on the screen right away and work on perfecting the final results together as a team.

I will be working with my Husband/ Photographer Adrian www.adriancrook.co.uk who will be you’re lighting, tech and camera assistant when needed.

I will be happy to shoot Fashion, Vintage, and Lifestyle and Classical Tasteful Art Nudes.

Fashion and Vintage/Hollywood looks are my favourite to do and I have lots of styling for this genre.

When booking a shoot please send me as much information as you can on styles you want and I will do my best to get the look ready for you and set up lighting beforehand. If you are stuck for ideas, have a look in my portfolio.

Will I get the same images as everyone else? No, that is simply not the case. You will be able to communicate the same way you would on a normal shoot, I will be happy to collaborate with you on different styles and ideas to make the images truly your own. 

Remote shooting, how it works? 

We will communicate on the shoot via video call Facebook/ WhatsApp I have found this the easiest way, however I can look into other options for you if you don’t have either.  Video call will be set up right next to the camera so you can see me on the set.

You will access my computer via Remote desktop for Chrome and given a password to log into my computer on the day, you will then have access to my computer and there you will find Capture One. This is where the images will be tethered and you will be able to see live view, control camera setting, press shutter etc, this is how we will shoot.

Adrian will be assisting you throughout, he will take instructions on how you want the lighting and camera positioning and make sure everything is running smoothly as possible.
