My approach to portrait photography is usually always the same. Unless the brief requires something different, then the goal is to try and create a more relaxed portrait, that will show you in your best light. Ideally, I like to spend a little time getting to know you before we start a portrait session. Whether it’s a business headshot or you’re an actor, dancer, performer, model or blogger, It’s important to me you feel comfortable and relaxed, to get the most from the session. Even if we only have a couple of minutes, it really helps to remove any initial awkwardness you might have around the camera.
I usually shoot portraits on location, chosen by you or I can source somewhere if you want a particular feel to the images. There are so many great co-working spaces, cafes, outdoor spaces and studios around Manchester, that can provide a really interesting backdrop for your portrait.
