LONDON PORTRAIT & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHERS
WHAT IS A PORTRAIT?
“A portrait, at its core, is an artistic representation of the essence of a person; a portrayal of their likeness, personality, character, and mood.”
The uniqueness of the individual has always been endlessly fascinating to us as photographers.
Whether photographing days out with family, intimate one-on-one headshots, or raucous parties and events it’s the unique spirit and personalities of the people in front of us that our work is really all about. We want our photographs to explore not just what someone looks like but a sense of who they are as a person – the telling quirks, the relationships you share with others, the way you express yourself. Our photographs aren’t about a portrait, an event, a particular holiday or a pretty pose, they’re about you and who you are, no matter what particular setting happens to surround you at the time.
"There's a tendency to categorise art by genre - impressionism, surrealism, portraits, reportage ... but in truth art is not about genre, it's about subject."
From London UK to Tokyo Japan our photography takes us all over the world.
Whether photographing families on holiday, portrait photography in London or the greatest dancefloors on earth we’re incredibly fortunate that our photography takes us to incredible places and into the lives of extraordinary people around the globe.
TWO UNIQUE ARTISTS, ONE COHERENT VISION
Photography with life, humour, truth and spontaneity
As a brother and sister photography duo, we have always been each other’s greatest creative influence. It’s perhaps the family connection and close relationship that we ourselves share that has made family relationships one of our favourite muses. We love to observe and photograph people going about their lives, making each other laugh, sharing a knowing look … These are the things that show us who you really are. These are the telling moments, the unpolished characterisations, the unguarded glimpses of the soul. Whether shooting a controlled portrait or revelling in unbridled chaos, these are the visions of life that tell the true story of who you are. These are the moments that deserve to be framed and celebrated.
We’re proud to represent Fujifilm, world-leading creators of cameras as official ambassadors and FUJIFILM X-PHOTOGRAPHERS.
LONDON PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY WITH MEANING AND CHARACTER
Portrait photography takes many shapes, but the portraiture we love is not about elaborate posing, extraordinary sets, extreme lighting and photoshop; it’s about simply celebrating the person at the heart of the photograph.
Shooting in London, across the UK and abroad our portrait photography is a simple, relaxed shoot focussed on capturing some essence of you and your personality in your home or work environment. There’s no need to dress up, no cause to act or pretend. We simply look to create a real, truthful communication between you and the camera.
