"To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”

Elliott Erwitt

Please get in touch if you have any questions or require any more information about a portrait photo shoot

Should the weather make the photo shoot impossible to go ahead as planned, we would look at rescheduling to a different day, or if possible, perhaps a later time on the same day. I try to keep an eye on the weather a few days before the photo shoot, allowing a pre-warning of the impending conditions.
It can certainly be supportive to have a friend at your photo shoot. This is not a problem, although I would suggest that you chose someone who would not be a distraction or cause risk. It can sometimes be boring for a person to be at a photo shoot, and I would recommend that they bring along something to keep them occupied.
For most photographs a relaxed and natural look is more pleasing, therefore it is about 'being yourself'. During the photo shoot I will offer guidance and direction should you require. When we are planning the photo shoot, we can discuss ideas and it can be useful to look through similar photos online, in magazines, etc. for ideas on poses and expressions. For most occasions it is about capturing 'your' character, which is something that I would encourage.
Unfortunately this is not something that I can normally do. I can provide materials to enhance outfits in many cases. We would discuss outfits while planning the photo shoot, giving you guidance of what is likely to work best for your desired outcome
Yes, I can supply gift vouchers for any service or training option, which can be used for full or part payment of the chosen service.
