Also ideal as a solo portraiture, promotional images/album covers for musicians, singers, artists, commissions, dating profiles, etc.

Actor and corporate headshots are also available.

Location Portrait Photography

This session is for photography at a location of your choice. I’ll shoot with both natural light and fill in flash.

I personally love to photograph clients on location as there is a lot of colour and texture. Both of these can make your images have a bit of visual pop that will make you stand out from the crowd.

Portrait Photography FAQs

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 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 (on skin), eye brightening & sharpening, teeth whitening and the reduction of wrinkles/under eye circles. The reduction of redness/blotchy skin and wrinkle removal is available for an additional charge, please get in touch for a quote.

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 charcoal backdrop, darker colours help to emphasise your face more. With location photography wear cool colours in Spring/Summer (blue, beige, black) and warm colours (red, purple, pink, orange, green) in Autumn.

What is a high contrast image?

A photo with a deliberately obvious separation between highlights and shadows.
