A rare self-portrait!

I prefer to be the one taking the photo but here's a rare glimpse at the man behind the lens! Special thanks to my photographer friend Ian Andrews from White Wheel Photography for taking this portrait. Hopefully this portrait allays any fears that I may be that guy called Triggers from Only Fools and Horses!

Lifestyle photography

Whereas some people feel comfortable in a studio with all the bright lights many clients prefer to go out on location somewhere and shoot within their natural surroundings. This can lead to much more relaxed portraits as it's a less alien environment and you can work with natural daylight. We specialise in this kind of lifestyle photography and often shoot locally in Wandsworth Common which is literally round the corner from us.

With Jenny we began with some informal shots indoors just using natural and reflective light before heading off to the Common to catch the last of the sunlight. It was a fun and relaxed session where we managed to capture some beautiful shots.

If you like the idea of doing something similar, whether that's here or nearer to your home, then just let us know.

Studio portraits to mark an occasion

Christine celebrated her 40th birthday earlier this month and wanted some professional portraits to mark the occasion. Her family are based in the US so she also wanted a collection of decent prints to send back home.

I'll be hitting 40 this year but something tells me I won't look quite so good in front of the camera!
