The Magic of Outdoor Photography

There’s something uniquely enchanting about outdoor photography. As a professional photographer who has spent countless hours in the controlled environment of a studio, I can tell you that nothing compares to the magic of capturing moments in the great outdoors. London, with its diverse landscapes and iconic parks, offers an endless array of surprises, perfect backdrops, and unexpected opportunities for stunning photography.

A New Beginning During the Pandemic

Four years ago, as the world grappled with the onset of the pandemic, we faced unprecedented restrictions. What was initially a six-week lockdown stretched into months. During this time, I found myself yearning to break free from the confines of my back garden and re-ignite my creativity. As restrictions began to ease, allowing us to meet outdoors while maintaining social distancing, I saw an opportunity to blend my love for photography with the newfound freedom of the outdoors.

The Idea of a Mother-Daughter Shoot

In the midst of these challenging times, I conceived the idea of a mother-daughter photo shoot. With so many people working from home and families spending more time together, it seemed like the perfect concept to capture the bond and resilience of families. I needed promotional shots for my social media, and this idea felt both timely and meaningful.

Reconnecting with Familiar Faces

On the first day of the eased restrictions, I reached out to Jan, a client I had previously worked with. Our conversation was filled with the excitement of finally being able to reconnect and create something beautiful together:

📞 **Me:** "Hi, it's Jules."

👩‍👧 **Jan:** "Hey, how are you all?"

📞 **Me:** "All good, thanks. You know we can meet and walk in a park now?"

👩‍👧 **Jan:** "Yes..."

📞 **Me:** "Well, I've got an idea for an outdoor shoot. Mother and daughter bonding through hard times. Something to look back on and find the good things out of all this nonsense. How about the park near you? Fancy a walk with your daughter and me, and my camera?"

👩‍👧 **Jan:** "She'll love it... come on over!!"

Capturing Moments in London’s Beautiful Parks

We decided to meet in a lovely park in North West London, a place where we had previously shot photos. I remember a fun, albeit slightly embarrassing moment from our last shoot there when Jan had a little tumble. This time, however, the experience was different. There was a sense of relief and reward in being outdoors, capturing genuine smiles, and seeing people reconnect. It was a return to the creativity I desperately needed, and I am incredibly grateful to families like Jan’s who supported me through these tough times.

The Joy of Making People Feel at Ease

One of the aspects I pride myself on is my ability to make my subjects feel completely at ease. A comfortable subject results in authentic, heartfelt photos that truly capture the essence of the moment. Jan graciously provided feedback that underscores this:

“Jules has a wonderful gift of enabling his subject to be completely at ease which allows him to capture shots that really show you as a person, in your comfortable state. I would highly recommend him!”

Another client also shared their positive experience:

“Jules, thank you so much for our wonderful photos! You were such a pleasure to deal with before, during, and after our shoot, you captured us perfectly! Highly recommend Gander!”

Why Outdoor Photography is So Special

Outdoor photography offers a dynamic environment where natural light, weather, and surroundings continuously change, providing endless opportunities for creativity. Parks across North West and Central London, such as Regent’s Park, Hampstead Heath, and Hyde Park, offer stunning backdrops for family photo sessions. Each location has its unique charm, making every shoot a new adventure.

During our shoot with Jan and her daughter, we had a lot of fun catching up and exploring the park. The playful interactions and candid moments resulted in beautiful, heartfelt photos that tell a story of resilience and togetherness.
