My photographic style: Fun, relaxed and informal.
My greatest strengths: My greatest strengths are my stubbornness, my ability to remain calm in stressful moments, and my ability to have fun and really enjoy my work.
I have been in photography: I have been a photographer professionally since 2001, so 12 years going on 13 now.
How I got started in photography: I started down the line of photography when I was very young, I grew up with my dads SLR, I drifted away from photography for a number of years, focusing mostly on painting, but when I did my foundation in Art and Design, photography caught me again, and since then I have completed a degree and had many years of experience working in studios.
I got my first job in a studio back in 2001 while studying at university, I wanted to see if I really would enjoy the job at the end of the degree and I loved it.
In 2009 I was made redundant, within a week I had incorporated my own business, the thought of doing anything else just did not cross my mind.
My photographic skills: Confident with studio lighting, and natural light conditions, experienced with DSLR's, Calm with children and animals.
My personality: I think I am quite a calming personality, I try not to rush, take my time to get to know people, put children at ease and do not fluster easily.
Geographic areas I cover: I am based in Bradford, but will consider shooting weddings much further afield, and can arrange portrait sessions outside the area too.
Regular areas for me are Bradford, Halifax, Skipton, Huddersfield, and from time to time Colne too.Venues I frequently attend. I have a few spots I particularly love, The Alma Inn has some amazing views, The Tempest arms (mostly because that was my wedding venue), East Riddlesden Hall, and the Devonshire Fell just to name a few.
I found inspiration from: I am constantly inspired by so many other photographers, artists and often clients too, I love it when they have an idea, it may not be fully formed yet, but if they have something they would like to try I love that!
Success in photography: I have my degree and a few other qualifications in art and photography, plus many years of experience, I have only started entering competitions recently, so I am still waiting to find out how I have done on my first.
Photographic training.: BA (hons)degree in photography from Bradford University, graduated in 2003
HND in design and photography
Previous employment within several studios.
My interests outside photography: Between my work and my pets I do not have much time for many other interests, but I do enjoy reading and knitting when i have a little time to myself.
Major events: In 2009 I finally had the chance to experience a wedding from the other side of the camera when I married my long suffering partner of 8 years Stu.
Testimonials: Sammie Simpkins:
Amazing photographer. Came to our house for a cake smash photo shoot with my 1 year old and then a joint photo shoot with both my children. She made the children feel really relaxed and had so much patience with my 1 year old with her cake smash. The end products look amazing. We were given so much choice n they were great prices.
FANTASTIC - the only word to sum it all up, a picture paints a thousand memories , and they are amazing really great with children. Puts you at ease straight away will be back for more!!
I have always received 5 star treatment from Helen. She always entertains the children. Wonderful relaxed environment. I have a beautiful collection of pictures. Will definitely keep on going back for more. Many thanks Helen
Why I like the SWPP: I love the constructive nature of the members of the SWPP the way photographers work together to improve their skills and talk about experiences to help each other grow.
Future plans: Improving my newborn photography skills, increasing the business on mobile portraits, and hopefully in the next few years arranging a home studio as well as the mobile service I currently offer.
