Hannah Blackmore is a Sydney-based photographer who specialises in Interiors, Lifestyle and Wedding photography. She also shoots a whole heap of awesome stuff for HOORAY! We sat down with this super-talented lady to find out more about her eye-catching work:
Tell us a little about yourself: I’m an Art Director and wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Sydney, Australia. I’m recently married and have recently bought a little terrace home which we’ve just finished renovating, and live in with our 2 little puppies. How did you get into photography? My love of photography began almost 10 years ago when I started working as an Art Director for a large publishing company. Being on photo shoots constantly made me fall in love with photography and realised I wanted to be behind the lens shooting not just directing. Describe your aesthetic: I love soft images, beautiful light and interesting shapes. I would say my style is quite editorial, ethereal and fresh. I love photos that create a sense of escapism and beauty Talk us through a typical day at work: I spend the first hour or so replying to e-mails, then I update social media, blogs etc. before client meetings or heading off to a shoot. As I divide my time between weddings, lifestyle shots and art directing no day is ever the same. I’m always on the lookout for new and fresh locations to shoot. What’s the coolest project you’ve worked on? I’ve shot some pretty amazing weddings at some pretty beautiful locations. Whenever I shoot at Merribee (on the South Coast) I always love the results. I love getting out of Sydney and spending the day in paddocks around large properties. I also love shooting the interiors of beautiful homes – that never gets old. What do you love most about your job? That nothing is ever the same. I get to do it all, design, shoot, style and direct. I love having a creative job and I know how lucky I am to be able to do what I love every day. I also love working with inspiring people who make working so enjoyable. I am happiest when… I arrive home from a shoot that I loved shooting, and even if it’s 2am – I have to start looking at the photos. I’m equally happy spending a rare weekend off at home curled up on the sofa with my husband and my two dogs. To find out more about Hannah or to check out more of her work, visit her website here.
