'The Magazine Feature'
"We're all shaped by our experiences, our battles, our achievements"
'The Magazine Feature' editorial portraits celebrate your character, personal values and story. This is for the achievers, the entrepreneurs and innovators, the disruptors and unconventional, and leaders and heroes from all walks of life. Anyone who is proud of who they are, what they've achieved or what they stand for.
The editorial style will help you convey the 'you' you want to portray. Think Sunday Times magazine feature. Think stylish, artistic, intimate, even high impact. Celebrity portraiture rarely follows the rules. Express yourself. We can go classic, contemporary or just damn outrageous!
The shoot may span business and lifestyle, and a range of themes or narratives.
Editorial magazine style portraiture works really well with evocative or poignant locations which add a richness of place and time, or a certain feel or emotional association. Or maybe you'd prefer a series of Hollywood studio style shots with hand-painted canvas backdrops...or both!
Created with a view to display as contemporary wall art, they're equally at home as a series of mounted prints in a classic folio display box on the coffee table, or used to convey your personal brand through social media and print publications. Or all three.
Investments start from £850 for my artistic services and a single location day shoot. I will build bespoke packages for more involved multiple location shoots over several different days or a wider portfolio of portraits.
Artistically presented wall art, printed and framed by award winning professionals, range from £495 to £1950. Printed display folio boxes range upto £1250 (upto 20 prints). Wall art and folio boxes include your choice of upto 5 complimentary magazine style digital portraits suitable for online use. Or choose additional 'print quality' full resolution files (upto 51million megapixels) for £500 each, 3 for £1200.
Just a thought... a 'gifted' shoot with a folio box or wall art are also a unique way to thank and commemorate very special people for their service and contribution to your company or organisation.
Reasonable expenses beyond my artistic services (e.g. special location hire or permits to shoot, overnight location stays or extensive travel) are quoted and charged separately. Truly bespoke, every package is built around you and your individual requirements. I recommend involving a Hair & Make Up Artist, or even a Stylist, if you want to work through a range of looks and styles. But if you're confident in your own styling then go for it!
The experience starts with an informal discovery consultation.
