Beautiful portrait photography for the wall

Weddings and Parties, Portraits
Portraits - I specialise in creative and informal photography of all ages and believe that the best likeness can be achieved only when the photographer and subject have each others trust.

I like to spend a little time with you  before we start taking photos and after that I like to keep things moving so we don't have time to get bored. During this time I'll take a lot of images and will aim for a wide variety of expressions as well as a situations, backgrounds and activities.

I'm proud to have been exhibited twice at the National Portrait Galleries of Scotland and Wales, and would be delighted to talk with you about your expectations for the portraiture you may require.

I also enjoy the presentation of portraiture, and have a range of options for canvas wraps, as well as more traditional framing. 

A new way of working with modern portraiture is to work with a bit of context as shown in the examples below. I love this way of working. It has a sophisticated feel and looks well on the wall. I not sure what it's called, but how about Contextual Portraiture?
I love it: Contextual Portraiture. It involves a slightly longer sesssion with you or your subjects at a favorite place or location of your choosing. This means that I can shoot images of  you as well as some 'context' shots to use in the final composite image, which is then presented as a canvas wrap or floating image.

It's a beautiful, modern and, ahem, may I say funky way to present portraiture and works well with new material and also as a lovely way of representing an older image, as I've done with the flowers in the snowey landscape, and with the wedding photograph with the rose petals seemingly blowing in the wind. 

Please contact me if you're interested in a contextual portrait, or in talking to me about how you may want a favorite image you already have re-presented. I'll be delighted to hear from you.

Editorial or magazine portraiture differs from Lifestyle Portraiture subtlely but significantly in as much as it has to satisfy the criterion of a picture editor or designer, as well as the subject themselves.
