Ever since I started photography, I have had a fascination with photographing people. I have spent most if not all of my photography career photographing myself, getting to know myself better with each photo. One of my biggest goals with my work is to get to know people, and help people get to know themselves.
I offer portrait sessions, where people can pay to have themselves photographed in my style, however they feel they want to be represented in a photo. To re-launch this part of my business, I have decided to release my first ever portrait session competition!
This is a competition open to everyone and anyone within the UK. I hope to avoid any limitations, with the aim to give people an opportunity to enter and potentially win a free photo session with me. Yes!! First place in this contest is a free photoshoot (valued at £85.00) with me, capturing you however you want to be seen. The even more amazing thing is that all verified entries get a half off voucher for a portrait session with me, so even if you don’t win- you’re a winner!
I hope this contest can be a way of bringing attention to the portrait commission part of my business, bringing you lovely lot my way! I more importantly hope that in doing these session with people, I can bring out some confidence in you, seeing yourself in a new, honest way.
Also this would be an amazing Christmas gift to nominate someone for, as they would get a voucher to use for half off a shoot!
