I specialize in informal portraits taken in natural light, using light to sculpt the subject to the best advantage.
Drawing on years of experience, real skill with the camera and a genuine interest in people, I can make images that show people at their very best.
The best environment is the home where things are familiar and everyone is comfortable. Your home environment is part of you and records of it will be treasured in years to come. I like to start a session by exploring the location to check out the lighting and background potential. I often begin with 'action' shots, as they can help to 'break the ice' and create a relaxed atmosphere. The final pictures are usually a result of suggestions from both sides and are always unique.
A spontaneous picture taken during a fun session has the sparkle in the eye that will make the image a lasting pleasure. That is what I'm after!
I use high quality digital cameras and lenses. This means that the information is captured to enable the print to be either colour or black and white and to be considerably enlarged where required.
A week or two after the photographic session, I will invite you to a viewing in our home in Hullavington. There is a huge range of products that you can choose from, ranging from unframed prints to huge luxury multi-image frames to unusual acrylics to canvas prints and albums and I have examples of many of these products for you to see, feel and drool over! If a viewing is not convenient then I will put the images online for you to see and buy with a link to send to friends and family too.
