My journey to becoming an eco friendly photographer

Niching down is always  scary, but it was time to be brave and start living my dream life…

 

Since the launch of my photography business I had focused my energies into documenting families in a candid and natural style.  I never thought of myself as a commercial product photographer, but this type of work crept in slowly without me really realising and it was work that I really enjoyed.

Then one day my eldest daughter buffeted back my response of “I’ll play with you later’ with ‘I’ll soon be too old for you to play with’….. and in that instance I realised that I no longer wanted to work weekends, I wanted to be with my family.

Fast forward to some strategic planning and closing my doors to family shoots and weddings (gulp), I opened up my doors exclusively to business branding photography. Fast forward a few months more and another ‘aha’ moment when I realised that taking photos for eco conscious businesses was my passion.

And here we are today….

Hello, my name is Debi and I am a reformed family photographer, today I provide storytelling photography for creatives, eco friendly and sustainable brands.

With such a big pivot and change of direction, it almost feels like I am starting again. So, I thought it would be good to do a little introduction about me and my why…

With an increasing awareness of my carbon footprint and how much I still had to learn about living a more sustainable lifestyle, I started to follow and shop with small eco conscious business owners. This lead to photoshoots and a growing reputation as an eco friendly photographer, as well as a passion for making small incremental changes as often as possible to help lighten our footprint.

It also lead to a realisation that not all eco friendly businesses know how to best market themselves visually. With emotions being an important part of the transition to changing shopping habits, I realised that my storytelling style of photography could help. This is when I decided to really niche down to focus on working as an eco friendly photographer providing branding photography for businesses that care about sustainability.

Lifestyle product photography for Oils with Jess

I LOVE spending my days with other businesses on a like minded mission, working together to plan, style and shoot timeless photos that resonate with their customers and future customers.  I also love that by the end of the shoot clients have fallen even more in love with what they do and WHY they do it….

Before moving to Australia from the UK with my husband and then one daughter in 2012, I lived and worked as an Interior Designer in London. I co-founded the business and together with my amazing business partner grew the business from ‘kitchen table’ to a dedicated studio with a team of people. The experience and knowledge that I gained both from a design and business viewpoint have stood me in good stead for my business adventures on this side of the world and I am a huge advocate / supporter of small businesses and creators.

On a personal note, I am fascinated by mindset work, personal development, yoga and meditation. I find solace in walking and spending time in nature and with my family and friends … It has become an important part of my life and something that I practise on a daily basis. Is it any wonder I chose to become an eco friendly photographer?!

I am also a lover of art, craft, culture, music and all things creative … I believe it is an important part of our overall well being, I love a great exhibition and a day of culture in the City.
