Have you ever wanted to know how to get that perfect portrait of a loved one, without cropping a head or those feet? Have you wanted to find their ‘best’ side and thought it would be lovely to actually ask them to relax and not look as if they had a stick propping them up? or simply wanted to play with shadows and use the surroundings well? well this is the workshop for you.

Ultimately I am very nosy and being brought up surrounded by theatrical costumes and the people that made them, I originally thought that I would like to make theatre sets, but when I was studying Fine Art I realised that I wanted to document and investigate. But as with all art forms one has to find a way of making a living and my photography soon turned to portraiture.
