It’s been a few days British Asian Bride readers, but I’m back this to start of the posts this week with a Trade Interview with the photographer Dino Jeram. I first noticed Dino’s work online, where he showcases breath-taking examples of his work; a selection of these stunning images follow the interview.
What made you choose a career in photography?
I didn’t actually, it evolved from the point of my son’s birth. As a parent, you really want to keep as many memories of your child so taking good photos was simply a need. The sheer enjoyment of taking these photographs and the editing process become a hobby to an obsession. A friend asked me to photograph their wedding and I have to say the rest is history as it just snowballed from there
How long have you been in the industry for and where did you train?
Since very late 2007.
What should British Asian Brides consider before choosing a wedding photographer?
Quality and experience are my two top tips! Instinct is important – if you feel something is right then it has to be a good thing.
How would you define your style?
How do you decide which images to provide to your clients?
Without going to deep into the workflow this is a manual process and is based simply on quality.
Who owns the copyright of the images you capture?
Technically I do.
Aside from wedding photography, do you offer any other services?
No, we put all our efforts in to perfecting our craft of wedding photography.
What does your photography kit consist of?
A varied amount of professional Canon and Nikon camera bodies and lenses.
What happens if any of your equipment fails on the day?
I take risk mitigation very seriously, so there is always a back up camera in the bag charged and ready to go. Furthermore, photos are backed up locally and off-site.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I am based in North West London and would cover any where.
How soon in advance should brides book you?
As soon as possible. My advice is as soon as you have booked your venue – book your photographer. Or in some cases, if you have a date book your photographer.
Do you offer free consultations before booking? What does this consist of?
Of course. It is important we all meet and discuss the wedding events as much as we can, our job is to be a service to our clients. There is no specific rule a client must adhere too when visiting or talking to us, just be open.
What happens if you cannot make it on the day?
One of my colleagues who has been working with me since day one will step in,
How soon do newly weds get a glimpse of their special day?
I usually suggest the photographs will be available within three months of their last event. I do send taster images as a way of demonstrating progress though.
Are you insured?
Yes. We have a Liability Insurance.
What sets you apart from other wedding photographers?
I can’t speak for others, I do work incredibly hard. I have a unique style that captures the entire essence of the day in a thoughtful way.
Tell us about one memorable image taken by you?
All of them, I remember the details of all weddings as I fully engross myself. I guess it is more about what you can do for your clients. I can recall one fantastic wedding and less than a month after, the groom’s mother was taken into hospital. I was out on holiday and the groom rang to tell me his mum was in hospital and if I could get some photos across to him. The next day I think there were about 20-30 photos that I made available to him. Very sadly, the groom’s mum did pass away, but according to the couple she was able to take those memories with her.
What can brides expect when booking Dino Jeram?
Exceptional photography with massive effort.
