Portfolio Shoots

Let’s Start…

I shoot in a professional studio in a calm and relaxed manner to ensure we get the best results.

A headshot or model portfolio shoot always starts with a cup of tea and a chat.
We will discuss what you want from your shoot and the end use of your images, from this I will tailor your shoot to
match your needs and wants.

I will gently direct you to pose for the camera, from a natural pose to determined and focused, thoughtful, romantic
and we will also go with the flow to capture a contemporary marketable portfolio of images, which sell themselves
to your clients.

During the shoot we will continually review the images to check our progress.

Release Form
I ask everyone to sign an industry standard release form.
This is a dual-purpose agreement. It confirms © copyright ownership and also explains the permission
granted to both the photographer, that’s me, and you the client.

What is retouching ?
Retouching is the process by which I take the image from “off the camera” and make it ready for
publishing online or in print.
This is the removal of anything that shouldn’t be in the image, such as spots, frizzy or fly away
hair ends, uneven skin tones, excessive wrinkles, dust, or particles of clothing, and eye bags too,
anything that prevents the image from having a slick editorial edge.
Retouching is performed using Lightroom and Photoshop.
My philosophy is less is more.
I don’t aim to radically transform a person’s image but to purify and enhance it.
