Portrait Photography

As with any kind of photography composition is important. But lighting is all important. My absolute preferred portrait style is the natural portrait. To just go pick a spot with your subject and not worry about the complexities of lighting equipment. But you really can’t always just rely on available light to achieve the results you need. Too much harsh midday sun or badly lit offices will turn my attention to some trusty old portable Elinchrom lights, which will of course always reside in may bag of tricks.

Portrait photography is the oldest and most widely practiced medium in photography, but capturing a subject, or subjects, successfully relies on more than just “point and shoot”.

Creative business portraits

This takes a photographer with a dynamic approach more than the standard corporate headshot – with emphasis on the subject and surroundings. We are telling a story here so focus is on the subject’s own personality traits, their actions, the environment background and tone of message – all important – whether it’s relaxed, casual, formal or if your just looking for a fresh and fun shoot.

Here are some useful tips on portraiture photography and preparing for your portrait

Beyond London

I mainly capture corporate headshots in London but travel further afield to wherever you require your business portraits to be shot. If you’re looking for a corporate or commercial photographer in Surrey, Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Essex, Bedfordshire Sussex, Kent or any major UK cities like Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, please get in touch.
