“A portrait is a painting, photograph or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality and even the mood of the person.”
As London portrait photographers our approach to portraiture is the same as we give to lifestyle. The most important aspect is the ability to put the subject at ease. Not many people like having their photo taken. I’m not over keen either! We like to try and spend some time with the subject chatting and getting to know one another before we start shooting.
Once the sitter knows the photographer is not so scary we can start slowly working through some shots. It sometimes takes a few set ups and a variation of poses to get to the best images. As experienced photographers we learn in this short space of time how the sitter will look best (and even their best side) And we know when we get the shot!
Everyone from Princess Diana (when I was a student) to children with heart conditions to celebrity chefs. I am also commissioned to shoot portraits and professional head shots for various clients in and around London and across the UK. This includes work for editorial, corporate, business, brand and charity clients.
Examples shown on this page are from work commissioned by M&S, Channel 4, British heart foundation and a few examples of personal work which have won awards. They cover some truly inspirational people and everyday people who are doing some amazing things.
