Some Samples of Recent Portrait Work


I normally keep an eye of weather forecasts near the date of your photo shoot, allowing us to judge whether the weather is likely to cause a problem. In cases where the weather will present a difficulty we would look at re-arranging the shoot to another time or date.

Portfolio packages are available for: musicians, actors, models, beauticians, hairdressers, etc. The cost will depend on the intended use of the image, and a variety of Photograph License Agreements are available, allowing you to choose the best package to meet your requirements. It is also possible to photograph your band during a live performance.

For most photographs a relaxed and natural look is more please, therefore it is about 'being yourself'. During the photo shoot I will offer guidance and direction and you can look at the photos throughout the shoot, which usually helps. I there are any poses you have seen that you like, we can discuss them during the planning stage.

Much will depend on the style of photograph you require and the mood & feel that you are aiming for. If there are more than one person in the photo it can be useful to wear complimentary colours. Something comfortable is usually a good idea, to help you to remain relaxed. I will be glad to offer you more advice when we discuss the photo shoot.

Yes, you are welcome to bring someone along, and it is essential if you are under 18. To get the best from your photo shoot I would recommend that you ensure the person who you take along won't put you off or cause any distractions or risk. Sometimes people not involved with the shoot can get bored, so it is worth suggesting to your friend to bring something to occupy them.

I usually get the pdf file to you within 24 hours of the photo shoot. This file will have the best of the photographs in a document, from where you choose the final number you wish. There is no rush for you to choose, and once you have informed me of the photos you wish, I aim to return them within 2 weeks maximum (although often much sooner).

Many customers are presently asking for their photographs on CD or other electronic format, therefore this is the default. I can provide prints if you wish. To get the best quality of print and widest variety of options, I outsource any printing to specialist companies for which I can give you a cost based on your requirements.

Yes, I supply gift vouchers for all of my services, which may be exchange as full or part payment.
