Photographer: Monique Harmer
My love of photography began as a teenager. At the time I was given the use of a great little Nikon and dark room to develop film and experiment with printing on weekends.
In 1999 I commenced work for Rural Press as a photojournalist. This gave me the insight into a different style of photography, of which I am still very passionate about today.
My aim is to capture a moment in time the bride and Groom will cherish forever. I shoot weddings in a photojournalistic style unless otherwise specified. Consequently, I am able to produce a collection of beautiful natural photos of the day as it unfolds. Occasionally I set photos up to capture a spectacular background behind the bride and groom or when requests are made.
Most of all I love working with children, their innocence and personalities are expressed in their facial expressions and eyes. Like animals you never know what they are going to do next, capturing it is the fun part.
Now available – Studio portrait photography incorporated with creative lighting techniques.
My previous roles have given me a unique perspective, enhancing my ability to adapt to new and challenging work environments. My team and I produce a diverse and comprehensive collection of images for my clients. I discuss and plan photo shoots with my clients. Identifying the scope of the project its timeframes and budgets. Also analysing business requirements when needed. My team and I work collaboratively with clients to meet their advertising and marketing needs within a budget. This enables me to meet outcomes by ensuring an agreed understanding of the purpose of a project. We use our time and resources with efficiency, as most projects have tight timeframes to meet publishing or media deadlines.
