What makes a great portrait photographer?
Portrait photography isn’t just a case of sitting someone in front of a camera and pressing the shoot button. If it were, we’d all be experts. To be a top portrait photographer requires great skill, patience and total mastery of details like composition, lighting and camera settings. That’s the case whether shooting in colour or black & white. But that’s not all. We’ve still not got all the constituents we need to create a truly great portrait. So what else do we need? Well, one of the most crucial elements in portrait photography is the ability of the photographer to connect with their subject. Needless to say, the subject is the most important part of any portrait.
And that’s where you need the services of one of the UK’s leading portrait photographers. One of the most difficult aspects of portrait photography is the pose. The more nervous your subject is, the less natural the portrait will be. So, during your portrait session, Stu will make every effort to help you feel at ease. Not everyone feels comfortable in front of a camera and Stu recognises that. So he’ll take time getting to understand what type of look you want to achieve for your portrait. This is the case whether it’s whole family portraits, an individual portrait or a child portrait. And then when everyone is sitting (or standing) comfortably, Stu will work his magic behind the camera with the result being the work of a truly great portrait photographer.
