Portrait Photography Coventry

Images may be used for corporate, business, LinkedIn, websites, social media, press releases, blogs and CV’s, Also ideal for actor headshots, model portfolios, musicians/singers, artists, commissions, dating profiles, etc.

Portrait photography includes a consultation – we’ll discuss the look and feel of the images beforehand and then again during the session.

Photographs may be taken in our Coventry studio in the city centre on Medieval Spon Street, or at your office or workplace. Flash lighting is ideal and renders a clean and modern image and posing and lighting are personalised to be formal or informal. Advanced lighting techniques may also be incorporated – cross and spilt lighting offer a unique and arty look that is fabulous for B&W images.

I also photograph with natural light on location, such as the Custard Factory in Birmingham with its endless possibilities and array of graffiti or a garden (Jephson’s Gardens is a spot I love). Both of these can make your images have a bit of visual pop that will make you stand out from the crowd.

Optional Extras:

Discounts for groups or for companies with 5+ staff members.

Additional retocuhed images are £25 each.

Make-up artist is £60 & up,

Portrait Photography FAQ

How do I prepare for a portrait session?

Preparing a few days in advance of your photo shoot will make a big difference to your final pictures. Well moisturised skin and using Chapstick a few days in advance works wonders. This is especially true if you have a darker skin type, as it helps with lighting. Well groomed hair is important so bring your brush and products along.
Ironing your clothing is also helpful.

What should I wear for a portrait session?

Wear something that you are very comfortable in and also defines your style, it shows in the photo.
If we are shooting in the studio on a white or grey backdrop, both cool and warm colours work well. On a black backdrop, darker colours help to emphasise your face more. With location photography wear cool colours in Spring/Summer (blue, beige, black etc) and warm colours (red, purple, pink, orange, green etc) in Autumn.

What is included in image retouching?

Image retouching is kept quite natural. This includes mild skin smoothing, facial contouring (enhancing highlights and shadows), removal of minor blemishes, spots, stray hairs, eye brightening/sharpening, teeth whitening and the reduction of wrinkles/under eye circles. The reduction of redness and blotchy skin is available for an additional charge, please get in touch for a quote.

Can you arrange a make-up artist?

I’m able to arrange a make-up artist for an additional £60. For advanced make-up techniques, such as body paint, please get in touch for a quote.
