Professional Children’s Photographers

As part of this module i looked at various photographers that shot children’s portraits or fashion. What i did find is that the ones that shoot for the big companies like Next and Topshop seem to remain unnamed for some reason .This made my research more difficult as i would see some great images but struggle and mainly fail to find out who did the shoots.

I started to look a different way instead of looking at images i like and trying to find the photographers , i found photographers that concentrated on children’s photography and looked to see if i liked their work .This was a more time consuming process but eventually paid off.

I didn’t limit myself to just UK photographers i looked at the whole of the world as it seemed that the ones at the top of the business where American or Australian.

I had to contact some professional Photographers and try and interview them or get them to complete a questionnaire .From previous experience i knew i could be difficult to get replies and especially with the build up to the Christmas Holiday , with this in mind i decided to contact a lot of photographers. I didn’t just pick any i actually looked at their images and picked them if i liked them or thought they were good. Here is the list of the photographers that i contacted.

I sent an email first politely asking if they could help me with a Questionnaire i had made . Here is a copy of the text i put in the email .

Dear Julie

I am currently studying photography at Kirklees College , in the UK. As one of our modules we have to investigate an aspect of photography that we do not usually practice in order to broaden our knowledge of the various types of photography available to us .We have to contact established photographers to ask them questions and possibly get them to critique any work we may have done in that particular field of photography . Instead of asking local photographers I thought I would try and contact  famous and well established photographers to get their input and feed back.

I can appreciate that you are a very busy person and will be inundated by requests such as this but wondered would you be available to answer a short Questionnaire of no more than twenty questions .

Yours hopefully

Gary Conway

i had already got the Questionnaire ready to go if they replied stating yes , they would help .All i had to do was sit back and wait for the emails saying yes.
