Professional portraits show that you are serious and that you are willing to invest in yourself to help you stand out from the crowd and put your best foot forward. Your portrait represents you and your brand and is visible throughout the internet. Portraits and headshots help give others confidence in your business by showing you are professional, you take pride in yourself and that you know what quality means and that going the extra mile makes a difference. I am skilled in posing clients naturally will help you express confidence and comfort in your portrait in a way you (in a selfie) or a friend will not be able to achieve. I have spent a decade perfecting how to interact with my clients and build a rapport and relationship in order to make my portrait sessions as painless and enjoyable as possible. The portraits, taken in a studio environment, are suitable for use such as CVs, social media profile pictures, brochures or programmes and include Director of Rory Peck Trust Clothilde Redfern, author, curator and broadcaster James Sherwood, actor and producer Rodney Charles, bespoke tailor and winner of the Golden Shears 2017 Joe Holsgrove and designer and then creative director Pete Dawson.
Street portraits including candid portraits and reportage portraits captured during events. Defined by Wikipedia as “photography conducted for art or enquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents” street portraits require patience, persistence, and luck to thoughtfully and creatively compose a compelling shot and create a story to draw in the viewer.

Images also include Masterpiece London and the India Art Fair which Andy has covered as the official photographer.
