About Us

The Portrait Kitchen

Welcome to The Portrait Kitchen. We are Jon and Anjee, husband and wife for over 20 years, based in the Midlands, UK.

Whilst Jon has used numerous studios over the years for his portraiture we decided to build our own at our home. We wanted to provide a space where people could come and have their hats photographed professionally and at a price that is affordable.

“We have a big kitchen, could we build a studio in that?” said Anjee. So we did.

This allowed us to create a very homely and welcoming space, easy to relax in with coffee and cake always available. We want you to feel like you are visiting the home of a friend. We also have external spaces in our garden where we can create larger studio spaces. And if you want us to come to you we can do that too. Our work is about capturing depth and personality, achieving a fair and true representation of the sitter. That may be quite formal for say a law firm but more extrovert for a musician.

Things started to take off as our millinery clients also wanted portraits. They liked our work so much they told their friends and now we also do headshots or bespoke portraits that we call ‘Your Portrait.’ Then the pandemic arrived and things pretty much stopped over night. So now we are rebuilding our photography services.

Everything starts with a conversation so if you would like to know more or have an idea you would like to develop then please drop us a note.
