Everyone smiles in the same language
It takes more than a smile to create a good portrait
I work with a variety of clients to take portraits for many different reasons. Corporate portraits can be a powerful tool to present key staff to potential and existing clients, or to communicate faces and personalities within a large organisation. Despite the proliferation of cameras in phones and gadgets, families value portraits taken by a skilled photographer to document and share with friends, family and future generations. Some individuals need portraits for other reasons. A human feel to their business web site, to enhance their blog or social media presence, a visual key for agents and employers or simply for on-line dating.
Where possible I work with natural light in a familiar environment and I’ll never ask you to pose in a way that’s unnatural or uncomfortable. Having a lens pointing towards you can be intimidating. I’ll work hard to create a calm atmosphere to put you at ease and perhaps make you smile.
Here’s a little of what I do:
Babies, Toddlers, Children & Families – I aim for natural photo’s that explore the relationships and personalities of everyone present in a familiar environment.
These photo sessions are designed around you and your children. The style is relaxed reportage using available light as I capture spontaneous moments of a family at home.
Corporate Portraits – I work to a pre-agreed brief. Portrait sessions can range from classic head and shoulder compositions with a consistent style of lighting and background. Or more relaxed poses using natural light and a variety of contextual backgrounds.
Headshots – Quick, fuss free photo sessions for actors, musicians, academics or profile images for business websites and social media. Doesn’t mean there’s any less input, care or thought, just a tighter selection of images.
Maternity / Bump Shoots – Calm, relaxed, sensual photo sessions with just mum or perhaps include your partner another sibling or both.
