ABOUT THOM, THE STUDIO & WHAT TO EXPECT
A COLLABORATIVE, CREATIVE SHOOTING EXPERIENCE
I LIKE TO CREATE STRIKING, BUT REAL IMAGES THAT REFLECT A TRUE SENSE OF THE SITTER'S PERSONALITY
The shoot starts with a chat and evolves with clothing choice, and careful lighting; it's a creative process with the sitter fully involved, monitoring images as we go. It's often fun, and always chilled.
A RELAXED, PURPOSE-BUILT HOME STUDIO SETTING
WHILST ALSO OFFERING LOCATION SHOOTS, I PRIMARILY WORK FROM MY STUDIO NEAR NESSCLIFFE, SHREWSBURY.
A purpose-built, solar powered space to meet and photograph clients; there is room to relax and discuss your ideas, an adjoining washroom, parking, music and hot & cold drinks. The studio is surrounded by farmland which at the right time of year provides an excellent setting for location portraits.
I shoot with a digital medium format camera and Zeiss Otus lenses for exceptional image quality.
I LIVE AND WORK ALONGSIDE MY WIFE AMY, TWO YOUNG DAUGHTERS TILDA & ROMA, AND HEIDI THE DOG
As a man who likes to stay firmly behind the lens myself, I understand how exposed you can feel during a headshot shoot, particularly when you're used to being given a script and a role to play.
With this in mind I like to keep my sessions very informal and relaxed. We talk, we listen to music, and we get to know each other a little. I love it when my clients walk away having enjoyed the experience.
