Photography for you, of you and all about you!
When I meet with people, all sorts of people anywhere and everywhere, I really like to hear their story. Getting to know about someone else’s journey in life is one of the things that makes it wonderful. Being able to create photography that inspires people is great, but getting them involved too is even better; that is how the stories are created.
Everyone ever always initially says that they hate having their photograph taken. To be honest, so do I, but I've been changing all that. I get my own photograph taken to learn how it feels from your point of view. I make the whole experience enjoyable for you, you will feel fantastic about having your photo taken and want more. This happens on every photo shoot because I am interested in YOU! First we sit and have cuppa and get to know each other a bit. The photography starts gradually and you will soon be loving it and go away feeling amazing. Really you will!
I really LOVE to create photography with people and make it all about them. I started Sainte Croix photography to do just that, to help people become the person they want to be. This could be you doing what you do best with your family and loved ones for some stunning natural lifestyle photography for you to be proud of. Or it could be just photography to show your natural beauty or depicting your stories and dreams. Perhaps that could be something quirky, maybe a fashion model for the day or a Hollywood star in the 50's. I am open to ideas and concepts though personally I just love to create beautifully natural location portraiture. You will notice from my portrait galleries that the genres span a wide range to tell all different kinds of stories: fashion shoots in foreign lands, lifestyle family portraiture, a day in the life with children, commercial editorial portraiture and even fictional stories of times past.
Photography on location is what I love doing the most. Images of you in a natural environment, somewhere you love or even your home add so much interest and individuality to your photography. As you will notice from the portraiture presented throughout my website I like to find a good scene which can be a big part of the story, bringing out more character. The location can be decided to suit what meets your requirements though if you only have a vague idea that is great too as I have loads locations in mind and always find many more, indoor and out. It is really all about reading and using the light effectively so leave that bit to me; lets tell your story and create photographs you can be proud of.
About me as a Photographer
I am Adam de-Ste-Croix, an award winning freelance photographer running Sainte Croix photography full time. I am very proud to say I am a member of two professional bodies for photography. The Guild of photographers, an organisation which holds up the highest professionalism in the industry whilst cultivating creative inspirations and passions. I am also an award winning member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait photographers and the Society of International Travel and Tourism photographers. My business is registered and insured. I admire quality service and products and so only provide the same. I use only the best suppliers in the UK for all your products, prints, albums, framing services and wall art.
You may be just like me and not keen on pushy sales people. To make life easier all round my portraiture work is based on time and all my prices are available to booking customers. Generally most shoots can be done in 2-3 hours and so the starting point is 2 hours of photography for £200. This includes all the planning and research work to ensure we are ready for your shoot. When your portrait session is complete your photos are presented in a gallery so you can easily make a choice and pick a format in which to present them on your wall. Prior to your portrait session the prices of all print and wall art options are available to you. There are packages of the most popular selections available which offer you a greater value too.
This is very simple, just come and say hi! We can have a chat about your requirements and plan in a date and time to suit you. The links below offer various means of contact or you can just call for a chat if it is easier for you. I am also always happy to meet for a cuppa and cake so we can talk about your needs in person :)
Look forward to meeting you soon.
