What I Offer…

My aim is to create legacies, long lasting images of you and your family that capture the real you, you and your families truth.  The look, a glance, a smile, a laugh, that really represent you as individuals.  To capture the uniquness that makes your family who they are.  (Family = 2 or 4 legs, skin or fur x)

I love to work in the natural environment, a place where you feel relaxed, a place that has happy memories and meaning to you.  This might be the the park, where you love to play, a special place in the countryside that you go for picnics, or even the seaside where you go on holiday everyyear - the locations are many the opportunities are endless!

You know what I love to do when I visit peoples homes? The first thing I do?  I LOVE to look at their photos that hang on the wall, nestle in a frame on the side board or languish in a photo album!  The school pictures, wedding photos, celebrations, holiday snaps, posed, candid, Black and White and colour.  Grandad in his youth, looking dashing and handsome and like a member of the mafia, not a welsh hill farmer.  Mum as little girl, with the same knowing smile, innocence and opportunity ahead of her.  

I love to look closely, look into their eyes, their smiles.  I think about who they were before they became someones mum, someones granny.  I lean in to hear their voices, their innocence, their story.  I look at them to see the story yet to be told, I look at to see the history written in their eyes.

Let me capture your story, let me create your legacy.

Based in Warwickshire, I have a car and a passport and love to travel this beautiful country, so no distance is too far. 

 

Why I’m good at what I do…

My name is Sian Mercer and my business is Sian Mercer Photography.

I have always loved photography, loved looking at photos and being intruguied by this art form.  I won my first camera when I was 13, which was presented in the school assembly!  This little camera went everywhere with me, on my walks through the welsh countryside and then onto nights out at university - which means there are very few pictures of me, but loads of my friends on nights out!  Capturing memories, nature and my life.  I loved learning how to use a dark room, the magic of a picture appearing in the liquid.  Getting my first 'proper' camera, a SLR, I felt like I had made it, the noise of the shutter, the feel of the camera in my hand, was just wonderful.  Photography was always a hobby, and then I wanted more from life, I wanted to give it a go... so here  I am!

I set up my business in October 2015, something I have always wanted to do.  I come from an Agricultural background, my parents are farmers in Wales, I have worked on various farms, from cows, pigs and sheep, to driving tractors and getting the harvest in!  I have worked on research projects, taught at Warwickshire College and have organised on farm events and shows at the NEC, all withing the farming industry!
