Professional Portrait Photographer
Portrait photography a passion for beauty.
As a portrait photographer I feel that there a few things that you need to have or be in order to be a true portrait photographer:
- Understanding beauty and being able to recognise it.
- Understanding light
- Being able to connect with your subject
Blond hair blue eyes no thank you! seeing the true beauty in a person and being able to create a connection between you the camera and your subject is key, its not all about being Miss America.
Studio Shoot £225
Create some stunning images working in a fabulous studio in Manchester directed and photographed by Ashley Barnard. Working together and directed by me the shoot will be fun where you can reveal your true personality through your images taken on the day. The photos will be provided to you on USB once they have been retouched and processed ready for you to print and share.
The day will start off with a makeover by a professional make up artist before going through to the studio to start the studio photo shoot. The session will last for around 4 hours with a style and make up break in between.
The cost of the shoot will also include your first 10 chosen photos, additional photos can be purchased at £8 each.
Location shoot £325
The day will start with a hair and make up session before driving out to the location for the shoot. Whether you have chosen urban or a rural environment for your shoot my make up artist will be on hand throughout the session to ensure your always looking great and will assist with wardrobe changes.
Working outside can be a hit and miss with the weather here in the UK, but we can shoot in all weathers apart from stormy days of heavy rain and wind. Out door shoot are generally only available during March - September but if you are wanting a winter scene then exceptions can be made.
Changing out on location is not an issue with a mobile tent unit that fits over the back of the 4x4 you will have the privacy to change.
