Portrait Photography Information

Welcome to my portraits page. 

My aim is to create photos you will cherish for years to come. I achieve this through my friendly manner and ability to quickly strike up a rapphort with my subjects. I want you to have fun and enjoy the experience of having your photos taken and the photos will reflect this. I have the patience and understanding needed to capture the real character of my subjects and this includes having fun with children to get those natural expressions.

I work calmly and quickly and try to create informal photos where people are interacting, not just the standard smile at the camera photos. If you’re unsure what to wear, please let me know as I’m very happy to advise you on suitable clothing/colours. 

Standard package photo sessions last around an hour but I also offer packages which allow you to have a longer session and wardrobe changes etc. It really depends on what you want to achieve. 

On Location

I enjoy working on location and have some excellent locations nearby whether it be for families, couples or groups. Please see my Promotions page for more details. Photos taken outdoors have a different feel about them and some clients prefer an outdoor setting.  The beach is particularly good in the morning when it’s quiet and the light is soft.

In the Home

Another option is to have photographs taken in your home. It makes it easy for you and you’ll probably be more relaxed in your own surrounds. I can take indoor shots and/or shots in the garden.

Once the session is over, I will invite you to a private viewing at my studio to discuss cropping, retouching and preferred finishes. I don’t go for the hard sell so there’s no pressure on you whatsoever.

“We just love the look of these photos Dan, as the kids are just playing naturally and don’t even know you’re there. You’ve really captured their personalities as we’d hoped.”
