What to Expect
Maria has been a professional portrait photographer since 2005, and a landscape photographer since the age of 12.
In the comfortable and informal 'loft style' studio Maria is able to create a variety of settings from the classic style portrait against a black or white background to something a bit more unique incorporating her own individual handcrafted backdrops. The studio is also blessed with ambient light which allows for the creation of lovely naturally lit portraits.
All sessions are strictly by appointment and pricing information is available on request.
NB: Please be aware due to the studio being compact and bijoux the visitor capacity is limited to groups of 5. Also that the studio is situated on the top floor of the grade II listed building with no lift, so may not be suitable for those with a walking impairment or those with breathing difficulties.
Maria also loves to work on location whether it be for a pet shoot, a portfolio or an environmental portrait. Locations might include a 'grunge' urban setting against a distressed or graffiti background, perhaps a beautiful garden, park or woodland.
In a pre-shoot consultation we will discuss the purpose of the shoot and collaborate over the type of imagery, location, clothing, time of shoot and other details to the create the perfect scenario for you.
Dog Days Photography
Maria just loves photographing dogs! Dog shoots take place on location; at your home, garden, or local park, but generally at a place where your pooch feels happy and relaxed. This makes for images as unique as your pet. Her aim is capture (you &) your dog in familiar surroundings which will not only make for more relaxed pictures but pictures that will mean so much more to you because they embody treasured memories of the bond you have with your special pal. Maria generally lets shoots go with the flow, keeping things simple and hopefully fun, whilst allowing ample time to try to capture the personality and individual quirks of her subjects.
Whether you need corporate shots for business, embarking on a career in the entertainment or modeling industries, joining a dating agency, producing a CV, creating a company website, or for social media use, it is essential to have professional promotional images. Maria offers a competitively priced professional service at the city centre studio.
Perhaps you are wanting to get into modeling, or refreshing your current portfolio, or simply want a series of images for yourself, whatever the reason why not let Maria produce a fresh set of images for you both in the studio and out on location. The finished portfolio can be produced digitally, for convenience, or in a beautiful album for more lasting memories, even as wall art; there are plenty of options for finished presentation. Prices on request and each session will be tailor made for your particular requirements, and budget. Professional makeovers can be added to your package as required.
