commissioned portraits

Commissioned portrait service for headshots, profile and promo portraits, business or leisure!

Captivating portraiture with a unique artistic approach. Stunning images that stand out with a timeless quality that you will treasure! I have over 20 years experience as a studio photographer and pride myself in being able to create evocative, emotional and sensual portraits that will delight!

If you need a portrait for a commercial purpose, actors, dancers, artists, musicians, anyone needing a headshot or profile page image for a website or social media do feel free to drop me a line. I cater for all studio styles in my own studio. All images are digital and shot on a medium format camera with a quality that will supersede any needs, whether for digital publication or print media.


I also offer a home studio solution to your portrait needs where I will bring the studio to you. A small portable light system and backdrop can turn even the most modest living space into a portrait studio. Just drop me an email and we can find the best solution for you!


Packages can be tailored to your needs so feel free to drop me a line.

I also welcome anyone that wants a portrait for their own gratification. I confess to enjoying these shoots the most as we can get as creative as we like. Again a make up artist and stylist can be arranged at extra cost to the package, but i must confess to preferring the raw “you” in the studio. Either way I hope to hear from anyone that might be interested.

Pricing does depend on exactly what you require and of course, where the you are based. I am always happy to discuss this further, but you can use the general price guide below, to give you an idea.

Photoshoots can sometimes be at a location of your choosing. I have a fully portable studio, so if you cannot make it to me I am sure I can make it to you and bring the studio with me. The portable studio also offers great location opportunities too. However I am most comfortable using one of the two studios I have here in Brighton, East Sussex.
