We offer Portraiture with a difference. Edgy, with ideas taken from the rennaisance masters. We create something , that is very different than the conventional portrait and our ideas are developing with every image taken ....
We plan your portraiture or boudoir session in advance. This allows us to create pictures of you that are tailor-made to your requirements. We run a calm atmosphere in the studio or your home, which in turn helps you the client, to relax in front of the camera. Most people feel a bit awkward having their picture taken, if they are not used to it which is quite normal. We believe that, if you are relaxed and happy, then it shows in the photographs. We shoot our sessions using a mixture of the lighting styles of the Renaissance Dutch, Flemish and Italian masters. But, we add a touch of modernism to meet our clients’ requirements. The finished product is a portraiture consisting of rich colour, depth, beauty and a little emotion from the day.
You may also, have a change of clothes if you so wish. But, styling is something we can discuss prior to the session, which saves time on the actual shoot. You can also wear as much or as little as you want, it is up to you!
A portraiture or boudoir session can be fun and it can also be a confidence boost if you are feeling a little low. I have had clients in the past who had very low self esteem and have come along to a portraiture session, had a brilliant time, left the studio with a smile and with their confidence soaring. below is a snippet of a reference from one of my clients
"I was not happy with my body for a very long time. But, doing this kind of shoot with Mike really boosted my confidence, self-esteem and made me to feel really happy within myself again. So much so, I have done another 3 of these sessions with Mike and I loved every minute of them. I kind of felt that, I was being naughty which I found quite exciting and I bounced out of the studio with a smile on my face ”
