IF A PHOTOGRAPHER CARES ABOUT THE PEOPLE BEFORE THE LENS AND IS COMPASSIONATE,
MUCH IS GIVEN. IT IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER, NOT THE CAMERA, THAT IS THE INSTRUMENT
Each shoot is bespoke; individually and specifically tailored to you. I like to get to know my clients before the session, either in person at a pre-shoot meeting or over the telephone, so that I am able to find out what you would like to achieve with the shoot.
This allows me to start to get to know your personality which will help me achieve the most authentic and flattering portraits. It will also allow me to guide you through the process and help you to decide where best to do the shoot.
You may choose to have the shoot in your home or garden or amongst treasured possessions. Or you may choose to have the shoot in my London Studio in Hammersmith. Perhaps you may decide to have the shoot in your office and/or in a landscape which may have a special significance to you.
From experience, the key to a successful session is preparation. The more prepared you are in terms of what to expect and what to wear, the happier you will be with the results. Once we have confirmed your shoot details, I will send you additional helpful information and advice to enable you to get the most out of your session.
You may feel anxious before your shoot. That’s fine, most people do. On your shoot I guarantee that I will do everything I can to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera.
My clients frequently comment that I put them at their ease and give them an enjoyable, fun and pleasurable experience which leaves them feeling good about themselves and their appearance.
Investing in beautiful portrait photography is an investment in art. It is about displaying exquisite, carefully crafted images to treasure forever.
It starts with pre-production where I prepare you for your shoot. On the day of the shoot, you receive expertise in choosing the optimal location, poses and lighting and my skill at putting at your ease for the best possible results. Once the images are captured, I then edit them, choosing the best and retouching each one until they are perfect.
These stunning images are created in order to be displayed and enjoyed on your walls, on your desktops and as collections in albums. I am proud to offer a range of extremely high quality, bespoke products, which create tangible memories you can cherish for years to come. These are available in a number of formats and materials which I will share with you at your viewing.
I also create beautiful, hand-made, bespoke albums in a variety of sizes of the highest quality designed to become family heirlooms. I use Queensberry, the finest supplier available. Coffee table books are also available upon request.
You can purchase images as fine art prints in sizes up to 16”x12”. These are printed on the finest, archival-quality paper to last a lifetime and more. Finally, I can supply high-resolution digital negatives for you to print your own images up to 10” x 8”.
These options can be supplied on an item-by-item basis which allows you maximum opportunity to choose individual formats to suit your budget. I also provide an interior design and hanging service to help you display your portraits in the best possible location in your home.
