A portrait is a photograph of a person or group of people that captures the personality of the subject by using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses. A portrait picture might be artistic, or for business. Frequently, portraits are commissioned for special occasions, such as weddings, graduations or school events. Portraits can serve many purposes, to be used on a personal Website, displayed in your home or to promote a product.



Who attends a general portrait shoot ?

Anyone wanting a portrait of themselves or portraits of their friends and family. Capture those special moments of a graduation, party or christening. Show your 'best side' for your social media presence. All portraits are captured in high resolution with accurate colour. Why not treat a friend or relative to a portrait shoot for that special birthday present.

What do you wear for a shoot ?

You can wear anything you feel comfortable in. Make sure garments are ironed as creases stand out in photographs. Think of what you will use the images for to help you decide on what to wear. If you want different looks, outfit changes are essential. Try to make outfits compliment your makeup. Check small details such as manicured nails, eyebrows and lipstick. Men wanting a tidy look, don't forget to shave. Try avoiding fake tan unless done professionally, it can end up patchy, which really shows up in the images.

If you have ideas that you want to try at the shoot, write them down and bring your notes with you. We can use the notes as a reference during the shoot.
