I am David Woodcock a professional, Norfolk people photographer based in Norwich. The areas that I specialise in are:-
- Head Shots for business professionals, actors and models
- Portraits and Lifestyle
- Group Photo Shoots
- Engagement Photo Shoots
- Model Portfolios for those starting out and established models wishing to update
I love to capture that special quality, the essence and the character of a person or people on a photo shoot. Furthermore, it requires me find out a little about your profession and interests and to also have a rapport with you. The expression on your face, or the look in your eye can make or break a photograph. Everyone has something good about them that can be used to enhance their portrait.
If you are apprehensive about having your photographs taken then you are like many other people. Don’t worry. I am very approachable and will guide you through the process to help you feel relaxed. I will also advise you on what to wear and how to pose, to ensure that you get the types of images that your require.
About People Related Photography Services
1. Portrait and Lifestyle Photography in Norfolk and Norwich
A portrait photo shoot is a wonderful opportunity for you to get some stunning photos of you as a reminder of how you look today. It’s something tangible to show your grandchildren in the future. A family photo shoot is also a great opportunity to get images of the ones you love.
The location is extremely important as this determines the look and feel of the images. Clothing is equally important. Portraits look best when the subject wears simple plain clothing. Couple and group shots work best with co-ordinating outfits in matching colours. For further advice, please see my useful portrait tips on clothing and poses plus my portrait frequently asked questions page. If you like to wear vintage clothing there are lots of suitable places in Norfolk to capture some vintage portraits.
My portrait photography service includes lifestyle photography sessions. Lifestyle photography captures the essence of a family. Just imagine having photographs of your daughter enjoying sunny days on the beach at beautiful Wells Next the Sea or your son skimming pebbles in the sea at picturesque Southwold.
Images can be captured in my studio using black, white and multi coloured backdrops, your home environment such as a summer house or out in the countryside walking, cycling, kite flying or enjoying a picnic on the beach. Choose an activity and location that takes your fancy. If you cannot think of a location I know a great variety of places that make excellent backdrops for portrait photography.
I can also provide you with classic black and white images.
2. Head Shots and Model Portfolios in Norfolk and Norwich
If you would like to get or add to your model portfolio Norfolk is a fantastic county for this. There are many different types of landscapes including rivers and Broads, woodland, ruins and beautiful sandy beaches. Norwich is a great City to get some urban shots. All of these places provide interesting and varied backdrops within a few miles of each other. The facilities to get different backdrops will greatly improve your model portfolio.
3. People Related Photo Shoots for Multiple Needs
Many of my people photography services are stated in separate packages for different needs. However it quite common for my clients to require a combination of my different services in one photo shoot.
The reason is that people are now multi skilled often doing more than one job. So you might be an accountant or solicitor who also undertakes modelling or extras work and therefore need different photos for different needs.
If for example you require photos for social media purposes, a formal business head shot, some photos for a dating website and some portfolio images I can accommodate your needs.
Also how you dress and the types of images you need for different social media profiles will vary. With LinkedIn you will require a formal professional image. For Facebook and Instagram you will require more relaxed informal images. For dating websites you will require outstanding images to get you noticed.
If you need a multi purpose photo shoot I can achieve this with a 2 to 3 hour shoot. Please ask for a quotation.
