Welcome to my blog!

Hello, my names Rachel Gardiner, I am a Commercial Photographer. I have decided to create a blog so that I can share with you what goes on behind and the scenes and how much preparation really goes in to be able to create beautiful imagery. There is much more to being a photographer other than just pressing the shutter. Here you will hopefully be able to see some of my ideas grow and develop starting from inspiration, coming up with ideas, location scouting, planning, what equipment I may use, lighting set ups, styling, finding models and I shall even share with you behind the scenes of a shoot! I also will be posting reviews of equipment occasionally, which I think is quite useful if you're new to photography or looking to get some new equipment. So basically if photography, styling and technology interests you I really hope you stick around and keep your eye out for future posts to come!
