I work from my house in South London, by appointment only. Once you decide you would like to be photographed by me we can discuss your needs and desires.
You can put yourself in my hands entirely and we can see where we go, or you can be quite specific about what you would like to do, using your own unique style, other photographic or painterly references. I work in both colour and black & white, and I shoot on a medium format Hasselblad camera.
If we have decided that your session includes you undressed in any way I will ask that you come in loose comfortable clothing, no underwear worn, this includes socks. It takes too long to digitally remove the marks of tight clothing from the body. You may bring any clothes, jewellery etc that you deem appropriate, and I have copious props and textiles available in my studio for us to use to create the desired effects. The studio space is calm and private, and I will work with you to get you to a place where you are comfortable in front of the camera.
If you would like a make up artist and or hairdresser to attend you during our time together I can organize it for you at a fee of £200. In some circumstances full or partial body make up can really help you to feel more comfortable in front of the camera.
If you would like flowers then these must be ordered in advance and I can arrange delivery from wholesalers in Covent Garden market on the day of the shoot.
A session usually lasts between 2 and 5 hours depending on requirements, and I am happy to work on location inside or out for a negotiated fee.
If your experience of exploring my site has led you want to commission me as a portrait photographer then I am best contacted by email at email@example.com
I have a studio in my house which can be hired if needed or I am happy to shoot in other studios and on location.
Purchasing Images for Publication
I have a large stock of images available for purchase. The range includes pregnancy, children, nomads, India, Cowboys, the Carmargue etc. Some images are digital, some film. To request a discussion on an image or sequence of images please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The portrait fee includes the contact sheets in a digital form in both colour and black and white.
The images will be stored in perpetuity on hard drives and disks, therefore there is no need to rush to print. When you are ready you can order and your images will be kept totally private unless I specifically ask your permission to use them on a project, exhibition or book. All images are my copyright and as such may not be published elsewhere without my credit and written consent.
I am paid in advance. This can be done by bank transfer, Paypal or credit card.
Should you desire to print the images yourself I can give you a DVD of all the images un-retouched at a cost of £400. These images can either be RAW files or JPEGS depending on your skills. I will retouch a selection of up to 10 images for £200.
