HOW TO TAKE BETTER PORTRAITS

People photography is my speciality, both in the studio and on location. I am, after all, 'The Portrait Guy'. 

It is one of those subjects that many photographers feel understandably nervous about, as it is far more than knowing how to use your camera. So many good photographers are nervous about taking the first steps into this genre because relating to the person you are photographing and being confident and prepared are more important than fiddling with your camera. So few photographers have photos of themselves, yet don't even try to take self portraits.

In this talk for Camera Clubs, I share my thoughts, ideas and experience to help you create better portraits by understanding how location, lighting, subjects, posing and editing all play their part to create the final image.

 

I visit camera clubs in my area during normal times, but also do Zoom talks to any camera club. I am based in Newton Abbot in Devon. Contact Me​ for further details. 

Here are some of the topics I cover in my talk.
