Portrait Photography

At The Portrait Kitchen, we offer portrait photography for people who want to capture a memory or emotion. Something that represents in a way that they want to be represented. We engage with our clients to build a concept that they want to achieve in portraiture.

We also offer business and corporate headshots, and can provide you with staff portraits for use on a business site, for commercial use, or to use on social media channels such as LinkedIn. As a guide it is normally recommended to refresh your corporate portraits every 3 years. We normally do site visits for companies and offer half day or full day shoots depending on how many staff you want photographing.

Please note that due to Covid restrictions we are initially offering this service via our outdoor studio and social distancing and hand sanitising and mask wearing practices will be observed. Masks will be removed for the image capture.

Unlike most photographers we provide you with the complete shoot album not a selection of say 5 images. We also edit the album so you look your best.

How much does it cost?

We charge £75 for a 1-hour portrait shoot at our studio.

The time duration is actual shooting time and are based on an individual sitter. There is also an additional 30 minutes for meet/greet and a discussion about what is going to happen, which is included in the prices.

If you are a business and are looking for a number of staff to be photographed please contact us for a quote. We can come to your place of work which mans that your staff will experience minimal disruption to their working day. We charge £350 for a half-day or £600 for a full-day plus any reasonable travel expenses. All image editing is included in the price.

What do I get?

  • A photo session using studio lighting, set against a number of solid colour backdrops.
  • Typically, 50 and no less than 30 images, edited and delivered to you digitally for download via a secure web gallery within 5 working days.
  • Full usage rights.

For group/staff shoots we will provide an online gallery. Within the gallery each colleague will have their own online personal album so they can only see their photographs.

Can you do a location shoot?

Yes we can, when Covid guidelines allow. Location shoots may be outdoors or in a specific venue be that a luxury hotel or moody warehouse. The only additional charges for this would be the cost of venue and our reasonable travel and expenses.
