The Magic – Creating Inspiring and Believing in Fine Art Photographs which Transcend Time and Place and can be Treasured for Generations!

First and foremost I’m a portrait photographer with a passion for the arts and fashion and I believe with the passion I have for photography I can capture and bring alive the dreams and the imagination of the people I’m photographing.

I believe that everyone is looking for that one image. That one image that captures them at a time in their lives which they want to keep as a keepsake forever. Whether you’re looking for a beautifully orchestrated fine art photograph of yourself, a loved one or simply an intimate couples portrait as a keepsake, for me it’s all about the experience and the day itself and making it special for you.  It’s not just words when I say that when you book your sitting the one thing you won’t feel is rushed. I want you to take time and enjoy the experience and in doing so together we will create beautiful fine art portraits which will be treasured for generations and stand the test of time.

 

We have three packages ‘Fine Art Portraiture’,  ‘Pet portraits’ and

‘Business, Products & Events’,

 

Our Fine Art Portraiture services aim to provide individually tailored fine art portraits which will be treasured and transcend time and includes.

  • Individual Fine Art Portraits
  • Couple Fine Art Portraits
  • Family Fine Art Portraits
  • Baby bump (discounts for multiple sittings)
  • New baby

We can provide either the more traditional classic styled portrait service or for the more experimental and creative fun loving clients, looking for that something extra special, we also have a wardrobe of costumes and accessories and can introduce a fine art fashion element to your portrait based on an imaginative and creative collaborated theme. Why not visit our portfolio for some inspiration! Our fine art portraiture service starts at 175, which includes as many pre-meetings as it takes to decide how you want your photograph to look, the sitting on the day, plus the editing and the chosen high resolution digital images from the sitting supplied on a memory stick for you personal use (if you require prints, canvases, photo books, I can also help you do this). We can include a make-up artist at a small extra fee of 35 per hour. Please note I believe in fair and ethical pricing policy and therefore do not believe in having hidden charges. My only charges are for those quoted and agreed upfront. I also do not believe in the practice of charging by the individual image supplied. My price of 175 for the fine art portraiture (non commercial) includes the prep, planning, editing and all the chosen edited high resolution photographs from the shoot provided on a memory stick for your personal use. The only other charges incurred are usually  for props, hairstylist or traveling expenses but these would be agreed up front. For all non commercial work a 25% non returnable deposit is kindly requested on booking the sitting and the outstanding invoice paid on completion and satisfaction of the work carried out. At all times I retain copyright of any photographs and images produced unless specifically agreed in writing otherwise. Please see terms and conditions.
