About Stephen Minett
I can't remember when I first picked up a camera, like most things' at that age I'm sure I took it to bits, I do remember a fascination with the process, I remember I chose a camera over a school trip at 13 and my future had been set. This one missed trip has provided me the opportunity to work and continue to work, both nationally and internationally.
I began photographic career working in the fashion industry, I gradually developed a unique style and confidence that distinguishes my work (or so I'm reliably informed) from the main stream. Now 14 years on from this first commission, Consultant professional at Harrods of knights bridge, i concentrate my efforts on portrait and event work, although I still do the occasional PR assignment, I tend to find a unique enjoyment from providing memorable images that event photography particularly wedding photography provides the opportunity to do.
My style of photography? I hate to be Pigeonholed as a photographer in to any particular style, I hope I'm adaptable enough and listen to my clients enough to produce the images they require, and my experience in fashion photography has helped this no end!!
If pushed Id describe myself as a contemporary photographer who if the definition is to be correct, shoots a mixture of reportage story telling photographs mixed with the traditional wedding style photography, giving the albums I've produce a balanced feel and true reflection of the day.
If you asked me directly I'd simply say "I shoot romance".
