Portraits begin with a little lifestyle questionnaire – this is an important step towards capturing you in the best way but leads a little into how you would hit it off with the camera. It also leads to ideas of the locations to use on the shoot.
After we’ve had a little chat, the discussion leads to what you would like to showcase off your portraits. Maybe you’re a canvas style person, or you simply want a little family album.
Now the fun begins…
What better place to start the shoot than in the family home? Let’s begin with the place you are most relaxed in! This little tête-à-tête is the starter to the main shoot and gives you a snapshot of how the shoot will develop (excuse the puns!)
The next stage will involve travelling (either to a local area or maybe something that’s got memories associated with it) and having a little walk around before the shooting continues. At first you’ll probably feel a little awkward as I talk to you whilst taking some shots, but you’ll get used to it! This will enable me to catch you when you are you (and not posing).
Finally, the last stage is to sit back and chill whilst I put the images through the old press mangler, work my magic and produce stunning artwork unique to you and your family, on handcrafted products made to last years.
