Portraits and Private Commissions

Commissioning a portrait, having your picture taken, is probably one of the most intangible purchases you will ever make. Whether buying a car or painting it is something you can see, touch, try out but your photograph is different – it doesn’t exist until a creative process starts. Most of the things we buy require no creative input from us. Ok we can choose the colour, the make, the size but these are from the choices the manufacturer offers. It’s easy. Creating a unique portrait photograph is easy as well but it does take a little work – oh and a good photographer.

Most of my clients main concern is will it look good, which means will I look good? The short answer is yes because we don’t stop until you are happy with the result. Most people dislike some aspect of their body; their bum’s too big, their ears stick out. A good photographer can hide these with clever posing and lighting without resorting to extensive retouching. Every commission starts with a discussion which covers everything from whether you prefer black and white or colour, your likes and dislikes and where (or if) the picture will be displayed.

Will it cost a fortune. No. I structured my services so that with a reasonable budget you can achieve a quality result. There is a fee for the photography and then a wide range of prints, downloads and books available in a variety of finishes and at cost that range from the very reasonable to the downright astronomical.

I try to make the whole process as painless as possible; in fact I hope it will be fun. I am passionate about producing different, creative, images and get great satisfaction when you hang them on your wall and your friends say ‘Wow – nice picture’ .

Artistic Black & White

Black and white portraits don't have to be portraits.  I love producing fine art  images which can range from sensual nudes to 'in yer face' engaging portraits. If you have an image you want to create or just want to try something different then contact me. Private commissions are  always confidential and never displayed.

I also undertake commissions using models if you want a special image for your wall.
