"The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality, and eventually in one's own"
(Susan Sontag, Writer, 1974)
ABOUT EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY
When photographing events, I feel as though I am a fly on the wall (except with multiple antennae and eyes in the back of my head), observing how the energy in a room will ebb and flow, noticing the small details - seeking out mementos to acknowledge the work behind the scenes in planning and preparing for the event, anticipating moments of candid abandon to capture the spirit of the event, the mood in the room, the interactions between people.
There is no way to really plan for a particular image at an event, they happen spontaneously, unexpectedly and generally when no-one else is paying attention.
At your event, I am your candid photographer.

- For all event photography bookings, an upfront booking fee (included in the total package price) is required to secure my services and is non-refundable, except in the unlikely event I am unable to attend your event and have been unable to secure another professional photographer to cover your event, or there are changes to COVID-19 social restrictions which prevent the event from happening. The Booking Fee is not refunded in the event of a cancellation.
“Myra was amazing when she photographed my party. On the evening, she captured all the little details, the smiles, the laughter and occasionally the tears (emotional speeches!), all of which contributed to make it a perfect reflection of the evening and a very precious collection of memories. She was approachable, friendly, considerate and seemed to be everywhere at once. Highly recommended. Thank you very much!”
