Lifestyle Portraits AKA Holiday Snaps!

Repetition alert! Yes this is a sister post to one on my general website! though this is focussed towards portrait photography. Yes we did it, we got to Madrid! Originally we’d planned to leave Exeter and go at Christmas but Omicron hit the country and it didn’t seem wise. But as we were [...]

Exeter Sports Headshots and Portraits

This was a great challenge to start the day. Sam called to ask about commissioning a set of images to help market his crossfit coaching in Exeter, Devon. There were two aspects to the session, one with me capturing Sam alone followed by a live group working through a session. The approach for [...]

Relaxed and Candid Portraits

This was a great fun session and for me pleasing to have the conditions and willingness to shoot slightly differently. I've previously photographed team members at Yellowtail though at that time I was replicating their initial headshot style which, though taken by a photographer in London, was based on an American photographer's style! [...]

Relaxed Headshot Portraits

It's a while since I've done the weekend-morning dining-room session; so here's one. There's more than one way to skin a cat but fortunately we don't have a cat, some visit the house but normally sit outside, just staring. Most of the headshot photography that I do is in the studio, shot with [...]

Professional Headshots for Devon Lawyers

Tim is a specialist lawyer and visited the Exeter headshot studio recently to update his professional portraits. As so often happens we had a great talk and took a few photos at the same time! The shoot was late on a Friday afternoon and was a genuinely lovely way to end the week.

Headshots for Exeter Psychology Team

It's a while ago that I'd photographed this team, towards the end of Lockdown as people were moving back together. Ståle had called and was looking for a set of approachable headshots for the community based psychology project. We shot on a pleasant evening, people were able to gather (at distance) outside in [...]

Headshots for Author Carla

I think it's fair to say that for this session Exeter based author Carla, like many people, was out of her comfort zone. For me, writing emails to people who write books puts me in a similar position. For many people having headshots is a new and somewhat uncomfortable experience, I am regularly [...]

Cinematic Lighting for Headshots

Sometimes I have an unexpected headshot session, this one was in the in the middle of a furniture shoot! However it gave me the opportunity to try something different with lighting. Sorry if this writeup is a bit techie. The room has a fairly low ceiling but it is painted white as are [...]

Actor Headshots for George

Exeter College student George was looking for some professional headshots to send to agents in London. His previous phone shots were no longer cutting it! We ran with a couple of looks and hairstyles, in addition even though the differences may seem subtle the lighting was deliberately more neutral for some shots. Although [...]

Headshots in Devon for Musicians

A joint headshot with Taiko drummer and percussionist Jonathan and vocalist Matthew was needed for their upcoming CD as well as general promo work. Although the brief was for shots to be supplied in mono they (to my eyes at least) work as well as the original colour files. We took a number of shots [...]
