A Bit About Us
I am Isa Aydin and I have been working in the field of commercial photography for over 16 years now with 10 years’ worth of paid professional photographer experience. My romance with photography began as a hobby. I voraciously read books and magazines on photography and anything related to it.
Aside from being self-taught, I augmented my knowledge by watching other highly experienced photographers do their thing. With the onset of the internet, I have checked out Google and YouTube videos. I have trained under famous bigwig photographers and film directors. One favorite person that I have worked with on an interior design photography assignement is the well-known Sydney based photographer Geoff Lung. He introduced me to the world of interior photography which consequently became one of my forte.
I mainly offer and provide photography services for still life because, aside from it being my passion, I like keeping things in control. With still life, I can control the effect of the lighting on the object, how to arrange the object, and no matter how long I take to do the shoot—the object stays still which doesn’t hamper the flow of my creativity. So with still life, everything would be dependent on my envisioned visualization.
Commercial Photographer work ethics
As a self-motivated product photographer, there are plenty of work ethics that I live by. And the topmost is corporate communication skills. With creativity and interpretation, a lot of things can go wrong in between these two and the most important way to achieve the exact desired results is via a strong corporate communication—which is not just isolated to verbal communication but also encompasses agreements, contracts, invoices, email responses, text messages, and voice calls. Next is timeliness. Being on time and meeting deadlines is always a must in the business world. I strictly uphold this work ethic as well.
And last but not the least, quality of work is of utmost importance to me. Of course, the client’s needs and wants are top priority—however, I will never compromise my quality of work for pay. That being said, I do offer feedback and insights to a project, but I never do a job just for money. It has to be quality over money.
