Portrait Photographer London
Thanks for taking the time to check out my portfolio. I’m a portrait photographer working from my studio in Camberwell, south-east London. I create portraits and headshots for individuals and businesses. These are used for a variety of purposes… Actor & Model Portfolios, Social Media Content, Promotional Materials, Corporate and Professional Websites, Dating Sites, eCommerce… to name a few.
My professional portrait work splits into three categories – Portraits & Headshots for Individuals, Fashion & Beauty Portraits, and Creative & Editorial Portraits. There is a crossover between these categories, but I find most projects end up falling into one of them. Defining what the images are for will help with planning your photo shoot.
Portraits & Headshots
These are the headshots and portfolio portraits for actors, models, performers, bands & musicians. These are all about the person, focusing on the head and upper body. These are your classic portraits required for Spotlight, StarNow, personal websites, social media profiles, your agency or management company. These need to show you at your best and also most natural.
Moving from the creative world to the business world. I can provide professional images for people looking to update their business websites. Professional LinkedIn profile shots will improve your chances of getting that interview and your potential dream job.
Beauty & Fashion photography
Models, Hair & Make-Up, Stylists, Wardrobe, these are collaborative efforts for model portfolios, fashion brands and beauty products. Creating unique and individual images takes time, planning, styling and attention to detail. Shooting tethered in the studio means we can check the fine detail of the images as we proceed with the shoot.
Editorial Portrait photographer
Props, locations, let’s play with lights and have some fun. Editorial photography is all about creativity either in the studio or on location. If you need more reportage style environmental portraits I can figure out the best way to achieve this at a location of your choice.
How I work
My prefered way of working is in the studio as this allows you to complete control of the light and with the right planning, props and backdrops, you can create lots of different looks. The studio is a very adaptable place for creating professional portraits. Location work requires more planning and you’re at the mercy of the elements, traffic, and other people. If you are shooting outside, especially here in the UK the weather can play havoc with your schedule.
Headshot photography can range from high-key light and bright, too dark and moody and all tones in-between. The key thing is capturing an expression that captures the character of the subject. Though my style tends toward the dark and moody, I can shoot high key bright and light when required.
I shoot straight into a computer when we’re in the studio so we can review images as we go along. This ensures you feel confident about the portraits you will receive. Our London portrait photography studio will create images that you will really like.
To get the best from your shoot you need to be relaxed in front of all the strange studio paraphernalia you find yourself surrounded by. My working method is informal and relaxed, I’m a slightly sweary Glaswegian with a few tales to tell from the ’90s and naughties that will hopefully relax you in front of the camera.
We have a variety of props, stools, and chairs for you to use and we also encourage clients to bring props and accessories that might work in the shoot.
Who I Work With
We can provide portrait images for your business website, and social profiles such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. As a London portrait photographer, I tend to work a lot with singers, actors, and musicians. Creative performers need professional headshots and also portfolio images that show a variety of styles and looks to show their range.
