With Philippe Flatt, Image Technique Photography
Since 2007 Image Technique Photography have photographing families, babies and children in a relaxed studio located in Marrickville in Sydney’s Inner West.
“I’m Philippe, since I was 15 years old I have been taking photos including developing my own film and printing photos in my darkroom. I was fascinated by the photographic process and I admired the classic portrait photographers of yesteryear as much as I did the contemporaries of the present time.
Although I have now embraced digital technology, I think it was my association with film that gave me an added appreciation for the preservation of one’s family history through the printed photograph. I was lucky to be part of a family that loved photos- we had loads of albums at home.
How do I tell your story? By creating an environment you feel comfortable in, let events unfold naturally and focus on photos that reflect you. Candid, traditional, formal or spontaneous? Perhaps a combination of all of these, most importantly being yourself is when the magic happens. You set the pace, there’s never any hurry.
The common element I strive for is to show the relationships, personalities and connection between people. I guess I also have a signature lighting style for portraiture; it’s usually very emotive yet flattering while avoiding the clichés of glamour photography. This harks back to the days when I was perfecting the contrast and tonal range of prints in the darkroom. Our cameras are digital and although editing software has replaced the darkroom we still put a lot of time and care into preparing your photos before they are printed to ensure they look amazing.
I create simple, timeless images that won’t date. Rarely using props although I’m happy to if our clients ask. Our newborn photos are a basket and flowerpot – free zone. I think a much more meaningful photo is a newborn cradled in their parent’s arms or hands instead of being placed in a basket. I think the baby will treasure those photos more once they have grown up.”
Image Technique Photography offer all types of portraiture: Families, new born babies, toddlers & kids. We also offer portraits for business people in our studio and on location. Our studio has kitchen and bathroom facilities-ideal for newborn & baby shoots. Sessions are at a relaxed pace to ensure we get beautiful images every time.
From these photo shoots our clients can choose between a wide range of premium quality finishes: Prints, framed prints, canvas, photo albums, acrylic products. We also offer digital packages or a combination of digital and print packages.
One thing we do promise is no high pressure selling.
“Being able to make a living from doing what I love and making people happy makes me happy. My clients cherish their photos; they will keep them for the rest of their life so I really feel like I’m doing something worthwhile. I love that I’ve been able to provide a service that reflects the way I like to experience life; a lot of laughter and fun.
Just as importantly I maintain complete control over the quality of the finished product I produce, I’m very particular about quality myself when I buy things or when I engage the services of a professional and this permeates into every aspect of my business.”
