I've always loved photographing people.
I'm passionate about capturing people enjoying life or sitting for the camera.
I love to catch those passing moods and expressions that can warmly remind us of loved ones - moments that might otherwise be lost in the blink of an eye.
Or photographs that capture the enjoyment of life - celebrations with family and friends or documentary work of people living their lives through their hobbies or activities.
Portrait photography can be done either in your home or at an agreed location. For individuals, couples or small groups I can offer a mobile studio setup that provides lighting and a studio background.
Optionally, images can be delivered with a variety of effects. In addition to colour and black and white, I can also provide a selection of stock effects that include cross processing, tints and softening.
A pre-shoot consultation can be scheduled to discuss your requirements and review the shoot location. This should take around half an hour.
The session itself will last anything from half an hour to two hours, depending on the subject and location.
As an alternative to portraiture, you could consider lifestyle photography, which focuses on people going about their day-to-day lives - it's more documentary than formal portraiture. It can also include family get-togethers or special events involving friends. Again, this will involve a pre-shoot consultation.
Rates for portrait photography or headshots are from £40 per hour, with unframed prints available from £1.00 for 7x5" and £10 for 12x8".
