Portrait Photography ~ Berkshire

Photographer Darren H

About this photographer

I have a passion for taking photos of people​​,​​ whether that be portraits or fashion editorial style. I love nothing more than to be able to show someone an image of themselves that makes them feel happy and confident. I particularly enjoy working with models​​,​​ both experienced and inexperienced​​,​​ to help them refresh and​​/​​or build their portfolios. Over the course of my teaching career​,​ I have always prided myself on my patience and ability to empathise​​,​​ and these qualities are just as important when working with people as a photographer​​,​​ especially if a subject is not confident in front of the camera or has little experience of modelling. An outdoor portrait photoshoot is weather dependent. In an urban setting​​,​​ we would aim to shoot in a number of different locations within a specific area​​,​​ walking between locations. A rural photo shoot may involve a walk through the woods or similar. Before the photo shoot we can discuss shoot style​ and outfits​,​ possibly using Pinterest for sharing ideas where appropriate. Given the unpredictability of the good old British climate​​,​​ flexibility is important and I am therefore also able to shoot portraits and headshots from my home in Bracknell. A typical home studio photoshoot would involve shots in front of a selection of pop-up backgrounds using natural light and​​/​​or studio light; although my speciality is using a black background to create striking​,​ and potentially dramatic portraits. I am also able to travel with a studio light should you require environmental portraits.
