Portrait Photography Kent
Professional photographer Mat Mackenzie is now available for personal and commercial portrait photography Kent or elsewhere. Using professional Nikon digital cameras and lenses, I will capture the image you are looking for.
Portrait photography is all about relating to people. If you are feeling tense when your photograph is taken, this will show in the final result. All the clever lighting and processing in the world isn’t going to mitigate against an uncomfortable grimace at the camera! So the first step in taking your photograph is helping you to feel at ease. Having your photo taken should be fun, and in the right hands result in a memory of you to treasure. I always take my time with my subjects, getting them used to the camera, and helping them present themselves in the most flattering way.
Commercial portraiture is slightly different, of course, although all of the above still applies. To start with it may be that the subject isn’t the person who has commissioned the shoot, and really doesn’t want a picture taken of them at all. Here it really is down to interpersonal skills, in order to make the best of the situation. I am also very sensitive the type of image that is required, and work with your own keywords, be they ‘professional’, ‘personal’, ‘approachable’, or whatever you may require.
Photography may be considered as the art of working with light, and this rings true with portraiture as much as any type of photography. There is no substitute for the softness of natural light when photographing people, and I like to use the available natural light whenever possible. Of course the available natural light often needs a helping hand, hence I also specialise in mixing ambient and artificial light in a naturalistic manner.
Be it treasured memory of your child, a happy family group portrait, a professional image for your online profile pictures, or a dynamic representation of your staff at work, I will ensure we achieve the desired result.
