Reportage photography is one of Javan’s favourite styles of photography, and is an observational style that records spontaneous moments as they happen.
Reportage is usually associated with photo-journalism, and the style has developed out of this discipline. Javan brought his love of reportage to wedding photography, and his trademark Wedding Reportage style was born.
Rather than spending time arranging people into artificial settings, reportage is about capturing those special moments as they unfold. But – it’s more than just a ‘point and click’ approach – a good photographer needs to understand the light in the venue, and know how to capture people in a split second.
Javan Liam has been a master of this style for many years, and his skill in seeing those little moments almost before they happen allows those otherwise unseen images to be shared by all.
