I am David Woodcock a professional, Norfolk portrait photographer based in Norwich. Portrait photography is capturing an image of a person or group of people, that brings out the personality of the subject by using a combination of lighting, backdrops and poses.
Would you like some fantastic images capturing the personality of you or your loved ones? I can provide you with creative images and lasting memories that you will treasure forever. My operating times are weekdays and weekends from 9:00am to sunset.
I will put you at ease during a fun, natural and relaxed photo session. Furthermore, I’ll also provide you with lots of ideas, uncomplicated poses, inspiration and locations.
Portraits are ideal to remember any occasion such as a fun day on the beach or at the park.
Unfortunately life does not stand still. About every 7 years or so our lives and aspirations change. Often people we love are no longer with us. So it is important to capture life and key stages in our lives with photographs, so that we can look back on our past times with fondness.
Also if you are looking for a special treat for a loved one, a photo shoot is a fantastic idea.
Character and Specialist Portrait Services
Everyone has a story to tell and it often shows in a persons face. I want to capture that character and despite what most people think every person I meet has one or more special features that can be utilised to enhance an image.
I also love meeting people from all walks of life. If you are in business, an actor, a politician, a musician or an artist I would relish the opportunity to take your portrait and tell your story in a blog post. If you simply want images as a record and memory to look back on in the future I’d be delighted to capture your portrait. I photograph individuals, couples and groups.
Other associated services that I provide are:-
- Head shots for business and personal use
- Group shoots of friends, related people, newborns, babies and children
- Model portfolios for starters and those wanting to update
Locations For Your Portrait Photo Shoot
Locations, Style and Technique
Your photo shoot can take place outdoors. This can be at home, at work, in a hotel setting, in a public garden or in any environment of your choice. Furthermore, Norfolk and North Suffolk are superb locations for outdoor portrait photography with beautiful beaches at Cromer, Sheringham and Wells Next The Sea plus woodlands near Aylsham and North Walsham.
I can recommend other suitable locations to you. You often don’t need to travel very far to find an excellent backdrop.
Appropriate clothing is the key to achieving excellent portraits. Vintage is quite a popular style. For the best effects it is better to choose clothing in keeping with your surroundings or in complete contrast.
Top Tips: Change your clothes every 10 – 15 minutes. This will result in a much better variety of images from your photo shoot. Choose a bright overcast day for your photo shoot. For an outdoor shoot April to October is best to capture spring through to autumn backdrops.
