Portrait photography

My name is Jon Busby and I am a portrait photographer.

Portraiture can tell us about how we see people. Portraits often show us what a person looks like, but they can also capture an idea of a person or what they stand for.

Portraits can also tell us how a person wants to be seen, and capture a particular mood that the sitter is experiencing. This can be described through choice of colour and a general atmosphere in an image.

A portrait can do many things. It can give a sense of importance to a person and their life; it can also give immortality to a person’s character: portraits live on forever!

Every sitter has something to give and my passion in portrait photography is finding that then bringing it out.

How I Work

Probably the most common thing that is said to I me at a shoot is “I hate having my photo taken.” Music to my ears because I want to photograph yourself in a way that makes you feel positive about yourself.

Set up is very light and non-intimidating. All that is required is a white/neutral wall, a medium sized meeting room, a table and a chair.

My secret weapon is time. Time to for you to relax, time to settle, time to feel at ease. My shoots normally last 3-4 hours and are very relaxed.

Pre-shoot you will be sent my “What To Wear At A Headshot Shoot” prep sheet.




Probably the thing I get told the most. It’s ok and quite normal to feel a little bit nervous. I have a number of techniques that will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. My job is to put you at ease and take a great set of portraits.

Yes you can and I can advise on what is best to wear using my ‘What To Wear At A Headshot Shoot’ prep sheet.

Yes I do although she will need to be pre-booked. Her fees start from £65 + travel costs.

Yes, I lightly edit all images as part of your fee. I can also do professional retouching for a small fee of £10 per image. However, the light ending that is included is more than enough for a headshot.

You will receive all images in a secure digital album and can choose and use any or all of them.


I may ask for written permission to use your headshots anonymously for marketing purposes. The reason I ask is because it is good manners and I respect my sitter’s wish for privacy.

Yes I can, but a word of caution. Sometimes shooting at your office can be distracting as you colleagues may interrupt your session.

I have access to professional studios all over the UK.

I normally say 7-10 working days but it is usually a lot quicker than that depending on the volume of sitters.

Yes you can. Bringing a friend can help make you feel at ease.
