The Portrait Kitchen is a great way for us to get professional photos of our hats taken. The professionalism of Jon and Anjee is superb. They project managed the whole shoot for us. We have a way we want things done and both Jon & Anjee delivered on that brilliantly. Milliners around the world can take advantage of this service however much we want to keep these gems a secret.

“Anjee and Jon have a great set up that they have built in their large kitchen. It is so homely and welcoming. There is none of the fuss and formality of a large photo studio. It feels more like you are visiting friends.
Anjee is always on hand to help keep the show on the road with the models and MUA and I was encouraged to take an active part in the styling so I got exactly what I wanted.
Jon really understands how to use light with his photography to make so my hats stood out.
If you want to take your millinery to the next level with magazine quality images that you can then use for marketing I can’t recommend Jon and Anjee highly enough.”

Jon shot some of the most beautiful and striking images I have seen of my hats. We talked on the phone before the shoot and he sent me photographs of a good selection of models. Those we chose were all lovely and highly professional. I decided to use a make up artist and the lady Jon introduced me to was incredibly talented and was a real asset to the shoot.
We had a busy but relaxed and laughter-filled afternoon with lots of tea and cake, and everyone was delighted with the end results.

Had a fantastic shoot with Jon and Anjee. They have a wonderful set-up in their kitchen and are so very welcoming – a joy to work with! It was great to be able to work collaboratively with various props/outfits and they had lots of cool and creative ideas. Would 100% recommend them as photographers and wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.
With simple, clear and supportive instructions the whole process put me very much at ease. Through his lighting methods, Jon brings originality to his portraits and I was so pleased with what he created for me.
As always Jon provided great comms beforehand and was very easy to work with on the day, very funny and wholly dedicated to the cause of taking great portraits. He really understands portraiture and light. Just like last time I’m already looking forward to sitting for him in the future.

I was fortunate enough to have my headshots taken at The Portrait Kitchen. Not only do all of the pictures look fantastic but Jon and Anjee made me feel completely at ease, something I have struggled with before but not with them. They shoot from their home and it is so relaxed plus being in the Midlands I didn’t have to travel into London.

Jon and Anjee were great from start to finish. It’s really nerve wracking going to shoots especially if you are on your own so it made such a big difference that they were a couple. They made me feel so comfortable which is the most important thing when you want your headshots to look good! Lots of laughs, wonderful coffee and before we knew it we had some fantastic shots. I highly recommend The Portrait Kitchen, not only do they take brilliant photos, I had such a lovely time.
