I love to create my portrait photographs in camera

 

To me the beauty of you is there already for me to capture during your portrait photography session without the need to manipulate and over retouch. I may add some slight adjustments to colour, contrast and may remove something that would not normally be there but that is about it. Bellow are a few examples of out of camera portraits to illustrate what can be achieved with good skin, good make up, good light and good camera techniques. Portrait session with Abi shot at Chateau Fengari near to Bordeaux, France, as a fashion and fine art portrait photographer this is my preferred location for creating stunning portraits.

“She walks in beauty”
 
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
 
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
 
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
 
Lord Byron

Dear Bruce

The portraits that you took of me at Chateau Fengari are amazing. I still can’t believe the woman on those photographs is me. Thank you so much for this unique experience which has really changed my self-image. I would like to do it again so I’m sure we will meet again soon. Every woman should try this to learn about herself and her sexuality.”
