Creative Portrait Photographer (London)
My real passion in photography stems from my love of communicating memorable visual ideas. I have spent a large part of my career as a creative art director in London and the Channel Islands, inventing ideas for advertising, commercials and brand marketing.
When I moved into photography, my passion for concepts came with me, so I have spent a long time developing a style of inventive artistic portraiture that enables me to reflect a subject’s background, personality and interests in a single visual image.
My contemporary fine art portraiture usually begins as a conversation with you, which is very relaxed. From our time together, I will pick up on things you say about what you like, and your beliefs. I’ll then come up with some ideas for how I think you could be portrayed. I’ll get back to you to discuss these ideas, often with sketches, and refine the ideas down to a final concept.
Many of my clients are in the advertising industry as well as magazine editorial and public relations (PR).
My style of image lends itself to getting across memorable messages.
I also create artistic portraits for personal and private clients. Although based in London, I have worked with clients throughout the UK and have particular ties now to Yorkshire.
This level of modern creative portrait photography is obviously more complex than straightforward portraiture, and often involves costume, hair and make-up as well as sophisticated lighting and location set-ups.
It also requires much more post-production and retouching to arrive at the finished image.
My photography service is one that is bespoke and personal to you.
Costs for these types of image depend a lot on the particular idea itself, so it is essential that we have a conversation first, to define which way we are going to go. I can then provide you with a bespoke quotation.
