Fashion photography. Fashion portraits.

November 15, 2014

Many portrait studios follow a theme. The follow a 'formula' in their work that flows through pretty much every sitting.
From poses and lighting styles through to edits and more.
This often means you may end up with photographs that say more about the photographers, than you!
Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with this!
It's a tried and tested formula that done well, meets clients needs and turns a healthy profit for high street studios the world over.

Here at the portrait studio, it's not as simple as that.
Yes we know what works. Yes we know what helps sitters look awesome but we adopt more of a 'free' style of shoot.
We'll have a concept. This is based on our experience and our knowledge of the studio but until we meet you, we just don't know what will suit your personality!

Our work has roots in fashion photography. Our photographers are influenced by the glossy world of Vogue, GQ and more an this plays out in our work. From poses through to styling, we'll push the boundaries to ensure you look both as awesome as possible, but more importantly,
