Having taught many professional photographers how to create the very best portraits and headshots, I thought it might be time to go one step further and offer, directly to the public, the full gamut of my knowledge of portrait photography and how to capture someone at their very best!
I cover most areas of Greater Manchester and Cheshire including Irlam, Cadishead, Warrington and districts, Eccles, Worsley, Monton, Walkden, Swinton, Pendlebury, Salford, Manchester, Tyldesley, Leigh, Bolton, Horwich, Bury, Heywood, Rochdale, Oldham, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Hyde, Stockport, Wilmslow, Trafford, Urmston, Flixton, Carrington, Stretford, Sale, Altrincham, Wythenshawe Hale, Bowdon and Lymm.

For other areas, please contact me for pricing including extra travel time expenses.
I teach photography to clients in their homes or offices; I don't work from a studio. I do, however, have mobile studio equipment that I use for teaching portrait photography.
So rather than have to travel to a studio, you can have your portrait photos taken in the familiar environment of your home, office or other pre-arranged location of your choosing.
Equipment is just the starting point. Knowing how to use it properly is essential to achieving professional-looking images that show the subject(s) at their very best. Some portrait photographers have me teach them all this; others don't
Most professional studio portraits have good exposure, but little thought is put into lighting to suit the subject's face. Not knowing any different, the client can be quite happy with the results, often reassured by the presence of all the studio equipment.
But when you see what can be achieved when the most flattering lighting patterns are employed for each subject, you'll be truly amazed! Similarly, knowing how to pose different subjects to show them at their very best makes a huge difference to the resulting image.
And for couples and groups, knowing how and where to position people of different shapes and sizes to capture them at their best is an apparently rare skill. Some professional portrait photographers ask me to teach them this too. Others don't.
Further to this, knowing how to do more with less equipment is a great advantage for mobile studio photography.
I have put together three great-value portrait photography packages: Essentials, Enhanced and Elite.
All packages are fully inclusive - there are no additional costs for travel time or expenses within my Greater Manchester and Cheshire catchment area (see Photography Services Where? above).
The Essentials package provides one carefully crafted headshot, environmental portrait, couple, family or group photo captured indoors or outdoors and using minimal lighting/ studio equipment.
Several shots are taken using different lighting patterns and poses to establish which is most suited to the subject(s). Once I'm satisfied with the shots I've taken, we peruse the undeveloped RAW images and you choose your favourite. I then head back to PhotoBoffin HQ to fully develop the image.
Once the image is complete, I email/ text/ WhatsApp you a dropbox link to your finished portrait. You will find two files: One optimised for websites, social media etc; and a full-sized image optimised for print. I retain full copyright of the image, but both photo files are supplied without copyright marking, and you can use them as you wish.
The Enhanced package provides three carefully crafted single-subject, couple(s) or family portraits. More time is taken to set up studio equipment in various configurations for different portrait styles and looks. Alternatively, different styles can be created using window/ doorway lighting or outdoors.
Having discussed your preferences, I take a number of shots in each configuration until I'm happy with the results. Next, we peruse the undeveloped RAW files and choose your favourite three images. I then head back to PhotoBoffin HQ to fully develop the images.
Once the images are complete, I email/ text/ WhatsApp you a dropbox link to your finished portraits. You will find two files of each photo: Three optimised for websites, social media etc; and three full-sized images optimised for print. I retain full copyright of the images, but all photo files are supplied without copyright marking, and you can use them as you wish.
The Elite package is designed for those who want more:
The Elite package provides up to 10 carefully crafted photos of your business team, modelling portfolio, or various combinations of family portraits.
Photos can be taken inside or outside, with mobile studio equipment used as required. Having discussed the options and your requirements, I set to work to capture each subject or subjects at their very best.
You and your business colleagues can be captured together and individually; high-key headshots or environmental, story-telling portraits.
Single subjects are captured in a variety of lighting patterns, styles and poses.
Couples and groups are perfectly positioned together to make the most of their relative sizes, shapes and features.
Once I have the required shots, we peruse the undeveloped RAW files and choose your favourite images. I then head back to PhotoBoffin HQ to fully develop them.
Your finished portraits are made available by Dropbox link. You will have two files for each photo; one optimised for web / social media and one full-sized file optimised for print. I retain full copyright of the images, but all photo files are supplied without copyright marking, and you can use them as you wish.
