Family Portraits

Family portraits are a great way to mark those special family events like anniversaries and birthdays or simply to capitalise on rare family gatherings such as at Christmas or Easter. A single shoot can if you like include split groups, couples and individual shots.

Photography can be provided at your home, a suitable outdoor location or a private indoor venue. Sessions run from 45-90 minutes depending on requirements.

Bespoke print/digital packages also available – please contact me for quote.

Children & Pets

Child & pet portraits should be as fun and laid back as possible. Outdoor locations are ideal in that respect but equally the home will provide a familiar environment for subjects to be themsleves.

If indoors, these sessions can be shot with or without backdrop, using natural or strobe lighting. The aim is to capture natural expressions and hopefully a little of our subject’s character.

Allow 30-60 minutes per session, 90 minutes if a shared shoot at slightly more cost. A la carte packages available with enlargement credit and digital proofs. Digital packages also available.

Personal Photo Shoots

These can be photo shoots for individuals, pairings or groups of friends and can make great gifts. We can work on locations outdoors or indoors.

A local park, beach or woodland area are ideal natural settings but equally urban or historic locations can offer interesting ambience for a art or fashion style. Strobe or natural lighting may be used.

Studio shoots can be staged at your home or other indoor location with sufficient space. Please contact me to discusss.

Collaborative Shoots

Mostly conceptual in approach and shot on location, TFP (time-for-prints) shoots are designed to produce new images for editorial & art publishing markets.

Only adult subjects considered. In return for your time and a completed release you get digital images or prints to use in your portfolio and for promotion.

Video clips are a new possibility for actor’s showreels and I am happy to discuss how we might produce some mutually productive footage.

If you would like to collaborate on future projects, please send me an email with picture/s or link to your work.
