Award Winning Portrait Photography
World class photographic portraits.
Top Quality Portraiture for Everyone
From young children to 80 year old's; a portrait photograph will be something to treasure for the rest of your life.
In this age of one second selfies I offer an opportunity
to have your "once in a lifetime" photograph created.
I capture beautiful images of you of course but it's your soul I really want to come through....
Yes, top class portrait photographs don't just happen and they certainly take a lot longer then your typical selfie; they have to be created.
Once the photos are created they need to be Seen!
My Portrait Photo Sessions are therefore all about creating that one image that will look beautiful hanging in your house; be that an Acrylic, a Framed "Giclee" Heritage photo reproduction or a simple foam-board.
Many people get these photographs for commercial of publicity purposes - actors for their website profile, models likewise, authors for the flycover of their latest book, and businesses for branding purposes.
If you'd like a World Class portrait photo then just complete the form at the bottom of

THE PORTRAIT PHOTGRAPHY PACKAGE
Whilst I do have a studio the best portrait photos are created in a more natural environment - a forest, a park, the beach or the city at night-time. Hence my package doesn't include use of the studio but will be done in a location of your choice or I'll suggest somewhere that will get the "look" you want.
AND IT'S NOT JUST YOU!
I include couples within the shoot - so if you want a superb photo of you
and you loved one then everything is exactly the same but there'll be
photos of each of you individually AND of you together.
The Portrait Photo-Shoot will normally last about 90 minutes. That will give us time to take dozens of different poses and use several locations, and time for you to change into several outfits if you wish.
After the photo shoot I'll select around 30 images and individually edit each to bring out the very best of you. We'll have discussed your views on airbrushing / photoshopping during our time together as this is a very personal thing.
I'll then upload the finsihed images to an online gallery where you can choose those you want printed. (If the shots are for digital use only like a website or branding then all the images will be downloadable)
The Basic Price for a Portrait Photo Shoot is £115 and includes the above.

What is "location portrait photography?"
It's about an image for life.
It's you being natural, relaxed yet showing the very best of yourself
Something you'll still have in 30 years time
A permanent reminder of just how great you are!
In this age of instant selfies with good quality phone cameras photography has largely lost it's meaning. It's convenient, fast with instant gratification but sadly there's a downside.....
It has very little endurance.
The photo from last week will be forgotten and superceded by todays photo.
A Portrait Photo Session with me is niether quick nor especially easy.
BUT it will give you photos that will endure for decades if not for your lifetime.
What's Involved in a Location Portrait Photo Session?
We'll work out a location, date and time. Usually evenings or a couple of hours before Sunset give the best light although city night time photos also look great with beautiful blurry lights in the background.
Then there's "what to wear" and whilst you might want to wear your very best outfit or even buy something new the photos are about you rather than your clothes.
You'll probably want to visit the hairdresser and maybe have your make-up professionally done - I have a H&MU artist available for this so don't worry.
On the day of the shoot we'll check the weather is going to be ok (this is England after all!) - if it's not we'll re-arrange.
Once you arrive at the location I'll have already scouted out a few places to do the photos so we'll head off and get started. We do have to do some "posing"! Yet the photos need to look as if you're not posing! Acheiving this varies and usually means a few minutes of photography to get the shot.
Then we'll head off to the next place and repeat.
Afterwards I'll select 20 images to edit - this means taking what will be a very good photograph out of the camera and using a variety of tools in Lightroom and Photoshop to turn each photo into a work of art. Things like adjusting the exposure in various parts of the image, changing the tones and colours slightly, getting the highlights and shadows correct and of course improving any blemishes or imperfections.
The end result will be 20 digital images in your own online gallery that are downloadable and detailed enough to print any size you could want to hang on a wall - or I'll create an album for you.
