Creative portraits

CAN I PUT YOU IN THE PICTURE?

HERE ARE SOME REASONS why you might want to consider a creative photoshoot:

  • THE POINT of this kind of shoot is to express your individuality and tell a unique and vivid story, in pictures…

  • THE FOCUS of the project is up to you. It can be for your business, family and friends, or just art, for art’s sake!

  • WHAT I PROVIDE is an array of bespoke professional creative services, designed to deliver awesome results.

  • WHAT YOU GET, from all this, is a beautiful and timeless collection of digital images, video and fine art prints!

The images below are recent examples of my work, selected from my portfolio (click any image to enlarge and browse):

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

It’s simple, really.

  • IN AN ORDINARY, EVERYDAY, PORTRAIT, you can expect to look just like an ordinary person, having a good-quality photo taken. And that's fine, of course, if that’s all you want!

  • THE AIM OF A CREATIVE PHOTOSHOOT is to reveal another side of you – taken in a way that says something special about you personality, your individual story… and looking like an actor, a movie-star or a professional model. It’s about creating images with a real wow-factor, that’ll just blow people away!

So, which would you prefer…?

FAQs

CAN ALL THIS BE FULLY CUSTOMISED?

ABSOLUTELY! Every costed item in my creative portrait service has a transferable budget – so for example, if you don’t require any styling services you can add that budget to what you get somewhere else – such as, more fully-edited images or more (or larger!) prints. It’s entirely up to you; and we’ll talk through all the options at the outset, when planning your photoshoot.

CAN IT ALSO BE EXTENDED / UP-SCALED?

CERTAINLY. if you want to order lots of large-format prints, or multiple photobooks – or perhaps, extend the budget for travel, styling services etc. in order to make the most of your photoshoot – that can all be arranged, either at the outset, when you book your photoshoot, or at any appropriate time during the process and afterwards.

I'M TEMPTED... BUT IS THERE ANY WAY I GET A DISCOUNT?

YES, THERE ARE SEVERAL ways in which you can substantially reduce the cost of your creative photo shoot!

  • BOOK EARLY – subject to availability, if you book your shoot within four weeks of the booking date, I'll take 10 per cent off. Obviously I can't do this if I'm fully booked, but it's worth asking!

  • REFER A FRIEND – if you recommend me to one or more people who book a shoot, I'll take 25 per cent off your next booking.

  • FOLLOW ME and SHARE! – From March 2019, I will publish a monthly promo code on either Facebook, twitter, or Instagram, which wins followers a 10 per cent discount on orders and bookings placed within the following four weeks. I’ll also give a special 25 per cent discount award to my top social media sharers, every month.

WHERE & WHEN? …AND CAN YOU RECOMMEND SUITABLE LOCATIONS?

  • ANYWHERE WITHIN 50 MILES or two hours’ travel-time of my studio (just outside Bath) is fine – and I may willing to travel further afield, by special arrangement.

  • TIMING IS FLEXIBLE, BUT ADVANCE BOOKING is recommended, as I’m often fully booked at least a few weeks ahead! If you have particular dates in mind, it’s a good idea to contact me in plenty of time… On the other hand, if you’re in a hurry, you might be in luck and get a “within 4 weeks” discount!

  • YES I CAN. I do a lot of my own location research, so I’m happy to advise on places and venues, depending on the theme of the shoot.
