Types of Portraits
Headshots are typically used on social media, in brochures, and on prints to show your professional persona. They can be formal or relaxed depending on your intention. They are often taken against a neutral studio-type background. It’s ideal to wear something without a pattern and of a colour that works nicely with your skin.
Headshots and portraits can be taken in or out of the studio
Portraits reveal something more personal than headshots. They can be captured in or out of the studio, be posed or spontaneous, framed tightly, or capture you in a meaningful environment and/or activity. It is all about the rapport between you and the photographer and experimenting with different approaches. The sitter may not be looking at the camera and a session may need to take more time and need specialist lighting.

Couple portraits and family portraits
Ideally, you want something relaxed that gives a flavour of your relationship. You don’t have to limit yourself to one pose. And the opportunity can be used to capture individual portraits and headshots.

A word about younger children in and out of the studio
When safe and happy, very young people are more likely to present naturally. A studio can be intimidating. This can trigger a refusal to pose for the camera. Some young people may need special arrangements, for example, a pre-visit to acquaint themselves with the studio environment.
No nasty surprises all photos selected are yours

Special Portrait Photography Projects
You may need one or more portraits for a special project, such as creating content for a music album or a brochure to present your work. I’ll need a clear idea of your needs, including publishing rights, to establish your quote.
An example of a page from ‘Border Lines’, Album, Music, Lyrics and Interpretation by Andrew Lobb, that I created in collaboration with Charlotte Lobb. We took numerous photos of Andrew and of different settings to create the album, including its songbook.
