Portrait Photography.

David Higgs PhotographyPortraits, Portraits Photography.

Portrait photos shown here are mostly but not all personal work taken for fun. The subjects are people I know or have worked with. They have given up their time so thank you to them.

The other photos have been taken at various events and in the studio as parts of jobs. If you need any more information about portrait photography please do not hesitate to contact us via our contact page. Here!

The studio portraits on show here are a mixture of styles. Some would be described as Low Key, dark backgrounds and moody lighting. The others are High Key, light backgrounds and bright lighting. I find that the High Key style tends to suit children better and Low Key is always best for Fine Art photography but there are no rules and it is always a matter of taste.

A few years ago everyone seemed to want high key portrait photos, for family portraits, today fine art is becoming much more popular. Fine Art portrait photos are mostly taken in the low key style because the photographer has more control over the look of the photo. Happy to hear from you contact us here.

When looking at portrait photos always remember they are of strangers. The photos will look much better to you when it's you in them also anything goes as long as you like it. High key, low key, surreal or abstract if it suits, go for it!!!  Happy to hear from you contact us here. Here.
