Hi! My name is Vicki and I'm from the UK. I'm currently living in Tokyo, Japan. I moved here with my partner and we are both teaching English and absolutely loving every minute of it!!! Everywhere I go my camera goes with me so that I never miss a moment if its there waiting to be captured! I have an extreme passion for photography but especially portraiture, there is something so magical about working with a somebody to capture a split second, which they will then treasure for the rest of their lives. I love taking the time to get to know someone on the shoot and let their personality and emotion shine through every photo. I think of photography as an art, what I capture through my lens is only the first step in creating this piece of artwork for you. I am a perfectionist about my photography and I will give you the very best I am able to give!!! I look forward to working with you and please don't hesitate to contact me.
I am learning basic Japanese at the moment so it will be necessary for my clients to be able to speak some basic English to be able to communicate to create the perfect shots.
About the Sessions
I am really interested in expanding my portfolio so if you have any suggestions that aren't written on this site, please contact me with your ideas and we can work out a custom service for you! I would love to do professional shots for professional models, bands, industrial shoots, in clubs for dancers/djs/performers so please contact me and I can give you a discount so that I can use the photos for my own personal practice and for my portfolio!
Before we meet for the session I will send you a questionnaire and it will ask about your personality, what your favorite places are, what style you want from the shoot (elegant, )etc etc.
Because I don't shoot in a studio you get a very unique and personal feel to the shoot. For example if you have a toddler and they just love to play out in the garden or a park... we can go there to shoot! I will capture their love and enthusiasm in every photo.
All prices include my editing time - so if you have a blemish on the day of the shoot just let me know and don't worry about it for another second, I will edit it out! You will be sent thumbnails of the photos from the shoot via e-mail and you can decided which shots you want. You will then receive high resolution photos of your choice either sent to you via e-mail (under 10 photos) or you will receive them on CD (over 10). If you wish to have prints made please talk to me and I will sort that out for you (at an extra cost). When you want to book one of the below session please contact me here. Also, if you require a custom session (that isn't listed below), please contact me and we will sort you something out for you straight away! I am looking forward to hearing from you!
