Firstly, I would like to welcome you to kristyjade.co.uk and thank you all for stopping by!
For those of you who don’t know already, my name is Kristy Jade Oliver. I am 23, originally from Hastings, East Sussex but I am very lucky to have moved to the beautiful Norfolk countryside where I have been for the past 12 years. I am a 2015 Graphic Design: Design for Publishing Graduate from NUA (Norwich University of the Arts).
From a pre-teen age I had always been interested in my art subjects at school but truth be told, at the time, I didn’t know being a ‘creative’ could ever be a career option. When starting my A-levels in 2010 I was excited to choose subjects I was really interested in and ended up taking four courses throughout my two years; Photography (of course), Graphic Communication, Media and English Language (completely beneficial, but mainly to keep my Mum happy). This is where my passion for photography blossomed. Late 2010, I was hired for my first wedding. It came around pretty quick after starting my photography course at college but I was more than happy to take the job! It was the most amazing experience. I loved all the pretty details, the atmosphere and actually enjoyed the responsibility of capturing such huge moments of somebodies life. And since then, I have not looked back and here I am in 2016 with nearly 6 years’ experience of photographing weddings. It’s all quite surreal! To the end of college and applying for universities (one of the scariest of times) I knew I wanted to attend NUA, and managed to get offers for Photography and Graphic Design courses there. At the time I already had photography jobs lined up for the year therefore I made the decision, not to put all of my eggs in one basket, and take Graphic Design as my new pathway! Now a graduate, I can look back at my time at university and say it has been one of the most amazing and at some times challenging experience of my life so far but my passion for photography has never left and this is now what I want to progress in more than ever.
So here we are in 2016, I have a new website (YAY!) and I am so excited to not be in education for the first time and do what I love!
As for my photography ‘niche’; obviously weddings are my strongest interest. Making sure I can deliver exactly what my clients want and need for their special day is the best feeling. Other than weddings, I have a little less, but just as important experience in lots of other aspects of photography. These cover shoots such as; Portraiture, Families, Infants, Lifestyle, Events, Sports, Runway, Fashion, Productions, Engagements. Whatever you can think of it, I’ve probably done it at least once! Examples of all my work and styles will be available soon, just please bear with me while my website is under construction!
So, I hope I didn’t babble too much, but there is just a little about me! Hopefully no one nodded off to sleep and it has given you a little insight to Kristy Jade Photography. If you have any questions at all please head to the contact us page and I’ll be happy to answer any queries you may have, or even if you just want an informal chat about my work.
Thanks again for visiting and enjoy exploring the site!
