Portrait photography should be a really fun experience. But some people might not have spent any time in front of the camera before, and it’s natural to be a bit nervous. Fear not, here are three reasons not to be worried about a portrait sitting with me:-
1. I’m a laid-back person – I will not be putting any stress or pressure on you. Remember I want you to enjoy yourself!
2. We’ll put on music – it’ll help you relax if you’re listening to something you enjoy (although I draw the line at Bieber…!)
3. There will be coffee – and I might even bring cake!
Part of the reason I got into photography was for the chance to meet new people and find out about them, so portraiture is something I’m really passionate about. It’s an enjoyable challenge to try to capture the essence of a person in a memorable image.

Lighting and Poses
Photography is all about controlling light – used well, photographers can create beautiful portraits, in turn high-key, low-key, atmospheric, dramatic… My studies and past experience have given me knowledge and ideas on how to control light. Before we shoot together I will talk you through my ideas and make sure you’re happy with the direction of the shoot. We’ll also talk through natural and interesting poses, so that you feel relaxed and it shows in-camera!
A Personalised Service
I take the time to get to know my photography subjects, not only to provide a relaxed, stress-free portrait sitting but also to allow me to try to create a portrait that accurately showcases you to the world! We can have a chat over a coffee to talk through exactly what you want your portrait to show. There might even be cake!
