Beautiful Portraits

Beautiful weather today so rather than confine myself to my small studio. I been going doing some shoots in my garden and outside the front door. The light from the afternoon sun was harsh, so I used a diffuser to soften the light to create this beautiful image.

When was the last time you loved a portrait of yourself?

At the last minute my folio building model let me down, due to illness, so instead of wasting day, I did the shoot with my new HUMA Yasmin. This is from Felix’s lighting series. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made. This is Felix’s signature lighting, I’ve learnt so much about lighting since I purchased this series. And I used to fear using…

Talented

Have you met Yasmin? She’s my amazingly talented hair and makeup artist? And she’ll be assisting on all future shoots making you look and feel fabulous. When was the last time you loved a portrait of yourself?

A behind the scenes look at how I achieved these photos. The beauty has many layers of diffusion because the strobe would be to bright on the model, it’s also feathered away from the model, so that I get that beautiful soft light from the edge of the beauty dish and also not get any hotspots on the model. The reflector to the left…

Finding the light

After hours of practicing with one strobe and a v flat. I did this self portrait. I love the beautiful soft light but I know that with more practice, I’ll be able to achieve more detail in the shadows.

You put all the digital files on your phone, so that you can show all the pictures to your family, friends and work colleagues. Eventually…

My nine favorite portrait photo’s this year.

    I created these portraits in my home studio, on the handpainted backdrop I created. It might look a bit gnarly but it photograph’s beautifully. I’m known for my makeover style of portrait photography but I can shoot you in whatever style you like. Check these out now.

Behind the scene

A behind the scene look at where I create the clients portraits. The gnarly looking backdrop was handpainted and created by me. It took a few goes to get it right but I got the look that I imagined. Let me create your portrait in my home studio. Check this out now.

Alison and David

So, I’m not a big fan of having my picture taken. I’d rather hide behind the camera. But this portrait of Alison and I fills me with such joy that I’m having a huge framed print of this image made. It just goes without saying , that you should exist in your photos. Don’t be the one that’s always taking the pictures. Have your…
