Taking meaningful portraits that will become valued family heirlooms and serve as unique pieces of exclusive Artwork in your home takes time. Your portrait session will take approximately an hour, during which time you will be shown a variety of Portrait styles and finishes. I will photograph a variety of groupings and by using a combination of lighting and posing techniques, provide you with a wide selection of images to choose from at your viewing session. In my large studio I can accommodate large family groups of up to 18 people, which is ideal for extended families, or three or even four generation family groups.
The viewing sessions last around an hour and take place a week to ten days later. From the choices you make, the finished portraits will be available between ten and fourteen days later.
There are a variety of finishes available for portraits, these include contemporary canvas wraps, frameless finished prints, and traditional prints in mounts.
All prints are made using traditional photographic materials and as such are not prone to the problems associated with ink based printing systems which can include colour changes, rapid fading and ink runs if allowed to get damp. Our traditional prints are produced through controlled Photographic chemical processes and backed by Fuji and Kodak to last 100 years*.
A portrait sitting at our studio costs £25 and covers the sitting and the viewing session. From there the Portraits are available on a per print basis.
Portrait photo's for Actors, Musicians, Websites, CV's, Facebook, Dating sites, Driving Licenses, Writers, Journalists, Social networking sites, Linkedin, corporate portraits etc available. Please contact me for details.
*All photography should ideally be hung away from direct sunlight and protected from Ultraviolet radiation for maximum image stability.
Portrait photographs should always be about the faces, rather than the clothes. With that in mind, wear what you're comfortable with, but try to avoid bright colours and heavily patterened items.
Dark, plain trousers or skirts with white or light plain tops. Denim and plain tops.
Football shirts or other heavily branded items. Stripes or polka dots. Both of these draw the viewers attention away from the faces and expressions.
