Portrait photographer

I enjoy photographing people, putting them at ease to allow their personality to be conveyed through their portrait.

Shooting portraits of busy individuals or celebrities I appreciate the need to work quickly to accommodate tight schedules. I am skilled at making the most of the available environment to provide a range of creative images, and am equally comfortable working in a studio, outside, or in a work or living space.

Whether portraits for the press, for publicity, promotion or corporate use, I take equal care to provide exceptionally high-quality, creative portraits that meet the brief.

My experience of taking photographs for print and digital media has given me an understanding of what makes an original, versatile photograph that will appeal to both picture editors and readers.
