Photographing another photographer is something I don’t do very often and to be honest it scares me a little!
Stayc is an amazingly talented wedding, fashion and lifestyle photographer. She is originally from manchester but moved to Australia a few years ago and has continued to grow her photography business…take a look at her work here.. http://www.stayconnolly.com
This summer Stayc was back in the UK for a couple of weeks and asked if I would second shoot at a wedding in the Lake District with her…. It was an amazing day and I learnt so much watching Stayc work a wedding. The sun was shining at The daffodil hotel in Windermere and there were smiles and laughter all round and drinks flowing in the mid summer sunshine.
A few days after the wedding I met up with Stayc at Chorton Waterpark to play around with our cameras and do a few relaxed portraits and headshots. It was roasting! possibly the hottest day we’d had so far this year…
It is strange being on the other side of the camera but I found it helped me to understand how to pose and direct clients … Here are a few I took of Stayc.. she’s a natural in front and behind the camera!
