Portrait Photography and Headshot Photography in Kent and the south of England.
I have a lot of experience in producing quality portrait and headshot photography. I have shot for a wide range of clients and applications from actors to authors and of course for a family keep sakes.
Family portrait photography
I really enjoy interacting with people and that is exactly what I do when I am shooting a portrait of somebody. The shoot itself can take place pretty much anywhere you like.
On location, in your home, in my modest studio which is located in the heart of the Kent countryside.
Some of my portrait photography and headshot photography as been used in editorial in many national magazines, like this one for Yours or as actor and musician headshots.
Mike Owen fashion, advertising and beauty photographer is holding an exhibition of his work at the Burton Gallery in Broadstairs in October and November.
I strongly believe that only ‘passport type’ pictures should be boring, head on, eyes to camera pictures. Interesting locations, camera angles and lighting will make you standout from the crowd especially if you need it for business use.
If your after a family portrait the same approach applies. As timeless family pictures will stay on your wall and trigger treasured memories for years to come.
Therefore this is why no two shoots are the same. I like to approach each one differently and will discuss your requirements with you. Contact me to discuss what is is you are looking for.
I cover Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex and most London areas.
Here are a few examples of my portrait photography and headshot photography.
