'The Magazine Feature' Editorial Portraiture
"We're all shaped by our experiences, our battles, our achievements"
'The Magazine Feature' editorial portraits celebrate your character, personal values and story. They’re for anyone who is proud of who they are, what they've achieved or what they stand for.
Think Sunday Times magazine feature. Think stylish, artistic, intimate, even high impact. Editorial portraiture rarely follows the rules. We’ll create a safe environment for you to express yourself.
'The Magazine Feature' portraits are created with a view to display as printed wall art. Walk the galleries of The National Portrait Gallery and you’ll appreciate the magic of painted and printed portraiture - you can't fail to feel the presence, energy and charisma of those long-lost souls lining the walls. You feel as though you're in their company. They live on. Deep down we all want to leave a light…
For something more discrete, they’re equally at home as a series of mounted prints in a classic folio display box for the coffee table. And as each come with complimentary digital portraits suitable for online use, they can also be used to convey your personal brand through social and online media, or simply share with family.
The relaxed and unrushed location shoot may span lifestyle and/or business, and a range of themes or narratives. Whatever you want to portray.
Evocative or poignant locations 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!
Investments start from £495 for my artistic services, and include up to a day shoot. Bespoke packages can be built for more involved multiple location shoots over several different days.
Wall art, printed and framed by award winning professionals, range from £495 to £1350. Printed display folio boxes range from £950 to £1250 (10 to 20 prints). Purely digital sets (if you must, but you’ll break my heart!) start at £495 for five fully edited portraits for online use.
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. 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!
A lot to think about. So the experience starts with an informal discovery consultation over coffee & cake at The Bakehouse set in the magnificent Ashridge House, Berkhamsted. Or recommend somewhere :)

'The Business' Portraits
"I like to re-invent myself - its part of my job" - Karl Lagerfield
Business portraiture, personal branding and headshots are about confidently conveying the 'you' you want to portray across all your professional contact points. But which to choose?
‘The Business' Portraits brings them together. There’s no formula, no rules or staid set look. The aim is to help you stand out. Each shoot, environmental or studio style, is as different as you and your brand so I’ll encourage you to think creatively. Allow a couple of hours if you want a wide range of looks and styles.
‘The Business' Portraits is ideal for entrepreneurs, start-up business owners, leaders, disruptors, consultants, freelancers, influencers, artists, writers, musicians and creators who want their online portraiture to work for them.
Investments start from £245 for my artistic services and a single location shoot, including:
- initial discovery call, or maybe meet for a coffee if you're local
- flexible, unrushed shoot (time to relax and explore ideas, multiple outfits and looks)
- image selection consultation
Final retouched digital Business Portraits are £50 each, 5 for £225, 10 for £450.
Consider involving a Hair & Make Up Artist if you're not comfortable with making quick style and look changes.
Reasonable expenses beyond my artistic services (e.g. special location hire or permits to shoot) are discussed, quoted and charged separately. Locations beyond Berkhamsted, Hemel Hempstead, Chesham, Tring, St Albans, Harpenden, Watford, Rickmansworth, Hatfield, Welwyn Garden City, Hitchin and surrounding areas may incur reasonable travel time and costs.
*For company team shoots my commercial day rate is £950 London, £850 elsewhere.
**See 'OurTimes;Our People' for a bespoke showcase of printed celebratory portraiture for conferences, exhibitions or workplace display.
