From time to time a noticeable shift in photographic styles occurs. Over the last twelve months an increasing number of clients are asking me to create “environmental portraits” or  “location portraits” rather than the standard head-shot.

Producing images in the workplace or “on location” tells a story and gives greater context to the subject matter. It allows the viewer a brief insight into the life of the subject – to get a feel for them. Being in their daily or natural environment they are more relaxed so we see more of their personality shining through.

As a professional photographer I love this type of portraiture to standard studio shoots as I believe that it creates a clearer “picture” of the person despite using the same techniques that I use in the studio.
