Photographer of the month
ehouse would be nothing without the talented photographers who travel the country each and every day capturing everything from country estates to cosy cottages. Whilst the office team work behind the scenes, the photographers are on the front line, and since we were founded in 2000 they have upheld our ‘photography first’ ethos. We pride ourselves on working with such creative and experienced people.
Its suddenly August! This month we’re catching up with Will who works in and around Hertfordshire. Here is what he/she has to say about a day in the life of an ehouse photographer…
Q: How long have you been a photographer?
I’ve had an interest in photography since school where I specialized in photography in art classes, which led me to working in a professional photographic lab as a hand processor. After college I assisted one of the UK’s leading architectural photographers working on worldwide projects and I have been working with ehouse for 14 years.
Q: Why did you want to become a photographer?
My mother is a graphic designer and art was always something that was around me so having a interest in photography was always encouraged. I’m interested in architecture and modern interiors so combining it with photography seemed a natural progression.
Q: What is a typical day like for you working with ehouse?
There really isn’t a typical day! Every day is different. One day I could be photographing a 15,000 square foot country property and then next day a small, city flat. I also cover quite a large area of the country, so I could be photographing close to home in Herefordshire and then working as far afield as Berkshire.
Q: What do you enjoy most about being a photographer?
I like to capture images that tell the story of a property. This could be how the property flows or how the light creates a feeling within the home. I also enjoy meeting all different kinds of people and the properties they live in. It’s always rewarding when the property owner tells you that you made something they were dreading a pleasant experience.
