Deaf Friendly Photographer

British Sign Language Fluent Photographer


I have grown up in a Deaf family and am proud to have lived in a Deaf world culture. I am fluent in British Sign Language (BSL) and have worked within the Deaf community for over 20 years. I am keen to provide a photography service that is accessible to everyone and I am especially excited about working with Deaf families.

It is really important to me that you feel at ease both before and during your photo session. I want you to feel confident knowing that your requests will be met without any difficulties in communication and that you will feel fulfilled at the end of your session. I have Deaf friends who have told me they found it difficult to find a photographer who they felt understood what they wanted and were not convinced that they had been totally understood: I want my work to be accessible to all.

Before the day, we can discuss face-to-face (via Facetime/webcam at an arranged time) what you would like from the photo session and I will explain how I like to work with my clients. On location, I love to capture natural, relaxed and informal photos of your family together, being yourselves and catching unique moments. If this hasn’t naturally happened already I will gently direct some informal posed portrait photos of the whole family together – it’s really important to me that you have a good selection of images to remember the special day.

If you have any further questions, or wish to discuss a possible family photo shoot, please get in touch via text on 07961 950890 or email info@evonnegatesphotography.co.uk.
