…ABOUT ME…



…your photographer.
I am Nads Gonder-Calladine, the Wedding and Portrait Photographer with a love for romance, happiness, and a certain type of hat.
I enjoy capturing feel-good memories and creating natural elegant photos which you will enjoy for years to come.



Philosophy

It is never just a photo shoot, it is your special moment.

My aim is to capture honest and beautiful memories for you while you enjoy the journey. My approach is relaxed and fun, which is key to putting everyone at ease with the camera.
Through working in front of the camera (and like most of us, starting out a bit self-conscious) I have gained an understanding of how to help my clients relax and just be themselves in front of the camera.



Background

My life has been inescapably intertwined with photography for some 30 years now. All started with an old pocket camera on a school trip to the zoo. I shakily captured some animals, and I was immediately captivated.

Over the years, I used a wide range of film cameras, growing into professional models before migrating with scepticism to digital cameras. Finding a digital camera to pick up where my last film camera had left off seemed impossible, until my late father-in-law put his camera (Old Faithful) into my hands. I was finally head over heels in love again with photography!
I decided to take Old Faithful on a photo course, which turned into many. When she started to show her age and limitations, I upgraded to my current camera (known as Magic, for good reason!) and continued my training. Magic has become my reliable partner in creating beautiful photos of your memories.


Professional Bodies

I am a professional member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and the Society of International Travel and Tourism Photographers (SITTP). Being bound to abide by the Code of Conduct of the Societies, assures my high professional standards and quality of work, allowing you to buy with confidence.
