SUSSEX PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER
“James was personable and professional from the moment he greeted me at his front door. I had such a pleasant experience with James that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services to anyone looking for a Sussex portrait photographer. Thank you James!” Ben Hoath
PORTRAITS & HEADSHOTS
Quite simply, you looking your relaxed best. From model portfolio headshots to professional and social media profile portraits, I expertly capture you in the best light. You’re welcome in my home studio or I can bring my studio set up to you. In addition, we can shoot on location or do both to create the exact look you want.
Being calm, relaxed and patient is my approach to family sessions. I work with lots of families both on location and in the studio. It’s about capturing natural moments and interactions between you. You could be at home, on location – for example in familiar or special surroundings or in my studio.
As a parent, you know when your newborn or little one is at their best. Being a father of two, I remember! I’m happy to match the best timing for you and my calm, patient approach means there’s no rush or stress. It’s about creating wonderful, timeless memories in the most comfortable environment for you all.
HOW I WORK
I work sensitively, calmly and professionally to create timeless portrait and family photos. When you get in touch, I’ll talk you through different options. For example, from timings and locations to choosing what to wear. Specifically, my aim is for you to feel relaxed, happy and completely at home whilst being photographed.
Headshots and portraits often require a very specific look and feel. With my studio set up, you can see each image as I take it which means we can talk about and adjust different looks, angles, lighting and backdrops as we go along. Being on location with you and your family has a different feel. I capture your natural movements and interactions, the bonds between you. I work with you, gently suggesting and sharing ideas rather than directing or controlling you.
After the shoot, I carefully edit the best images and upload them into your private online gallery. From there, you can download them in print and web sizes at your leisure. In addition, you can easily share them or order prints directly from your gallery. To see examples, check out my studio shoot with Ben here and family session with Kat and Jim here. I’m fully insured and have enhanced DBS clearance – a requirement for my work in schools which you can see here.
My fees start at £125 for an hour session in my studio including 5 high resolution digital images retouched in both colour and black & white. For longer sessions or location shoots, get in touch with your ideas and we can create your ideal portrait experience.
