Today I am thrilled to welcome Luke Holroyd Photography, a wedding photographer from Leeds as a brand new shiny Sponsor on the Plans and Presents Blog.
I hand over to Luke so he can tell you all about himself…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“Hello there, I’m Luke Holroyd and I run Luke Holroyd Photography.”
“I have always loved photography, when I was a child I would run around with an old film camera and snap away.”
“Now as a professional photographer, I pride myself on being able to foster genuine relationships with all the lovely people I capture.”
There is nothing more rewarding in this job than seeing the Bride’s smile the first time she sees her wedding images.”
“I can honestly say that nearly every wedding I capture I form genuine friendships with the Bride & Groom!”
“I’m 23 years of age, and I have been shooting weddings since I was 18.”
“I now live back in my hometown of Morley in Leeds and work from our home office.”
“I love capturing weddings, I’ve juggled part time jobs along with assisting other wedding photographers to get to where I am now and I honestly wouldn’t change a thing!”
“Behind every good photographer there is also a very patient other half.”
“I live with my beautiful girlfriend Joanne, who may not be any good at holding a camera but she’s full of lots of creative ideas and is a great support.”
“I don’t just shoot weddings, although it’s probably 90% of the work I do, I also capture commercial photography & family portraits, if you want to have a little look, head over to www.lukeholroyd.co.uk.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“I started off studying Photography at College then onto University.”
“Once I graduated I started assisting for every photographer I could, the best bit advice I can give to anyone wanting to learn is assist a photographer.”
“I spent a year or two assisting & second shooting, mainly wedding photographers, you learn so much doing this but I was limited with adding my own artistic & creative input into the imagery.”
“From there I started working on my own, honestly a huge step to go from having the comfort of a wage every month and no pressure assisting at a wedding to go self employed and have the pressure of not only shooting a wedding but making it look as awesome as can be!”
What inspires you?
“I absolutely love photography, being a wedding photographer you meet so many awesome couples, even before their big day you meet up a few times and really get to know the couple.”
“Who wouldn’t want to be around people on the happiest day of their lives!”
Do trends influence your work?
“I’m a complete social media hog, I love Pinterest & Twitter, you find so many other talented creatives that you can chat to!”
“I’m forever looking on Pinterest for inspiration, and honestly I hardly look at ‘wedding photography’ more fine art portraits, creative arts etc anything that can spark some creative ideas and how I can constantly keep my wedding photography fresh!”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“So where is Luke Holroyd Photography going? well 2014 was an awesome year and 2015 looks even better.”
“I’m just going to continue what I do best, keep traveling the UK snapping all the awesome Bride & Grooms!”
