'Cathy's professionalism, motivation and commitment to the work is exceptional. Her creative response to the diverse range of events she has documented has been first-class. She has also delivered material, under pressured deadlines, on time, in a friendly and professional way. We have very much enjoyed working with Cathy and are more than happy with the work that has been produced and will continue to use her as our official photographer for Southwark Events.'Paul Cowell, Events Manager, Southwark Council, August 2005
As the official photographer for Southwark Events in London throughout 2005 and 2006, and one of the regular social events and features photographers for The Insight and Absolute Magazine in Brighton from 2004 to 2007, I recorded a wide spectrum of carnivals, festivals, shows, launches and parties. Artistic, empathetic and highly professional, I am expert at capturing the particular atmosphere, tone, colours, features and all the spontaneous, classic moments which make each event unique.
'Thank you for being ready to take on this assignment at short notice. We have got some really good photographs which are going up on the website! Thank you again. I very much hope there will be more opportunities soon for other assignments and will let you know.'David Whiting, Chief Executive, Environmental Law Foundation, June 2007
When I come to meet you to discuss your requirements, I will talk you through all the photogenic opportunities offered by each stage of your event.
Taking detailed notes of the planned timing and storyboard of your day equips me to be always in exactly the right place, at exactly the right time, and shooting fast and discreetly also renders me near-invisible, allowing me to capture all the spontaneous emotion and natural expressions of the day.
I shoot an average of 2-3 frames a minute, or roughly 120-180 images an hour, then edit these down to present the very best 50-100 per hour of shooting as an online gallery from which you and your event's guests can choose and order optimised, touched-up and enlarged prints with a satin or gloss finish and with or without white borders.
If you would like your event presented as a printed book or traditional, glassine-interleaved album, I will then design all your favourite images into bespoke layouts and email the draft pages for your approval before producing the finished work.
