A great portrait photograph provides a deeper insight into the subject in front of the lens. The most famous studies all exude a sense of the colour and light while being composed in a way that brings the person to life.
A portrait photograph shouldn’t be a static image that has no personality, a mere expression of lines and angles. With all memorable portraits, there is a collaboration between the sitter and the photographer and the aim should be to ‘unleash’ what isn’t said. It may be defined by the lighting on the face, a glint in the eye, a certain sense of reflection or even anger but there is usually some central component of any strong portrait photograph that defines it more than anything else.
Whether you want a portrait session just for fun, or you are a model needing new portfolio images, or an actor needing new head-shots, I can help you. I like to take natural portraits with a sense of fun, and love finding new locations in which to shoot. I work as a portrait photographer in London primarily, but if you want me to travel elsewhere, just ask!
