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.
Types of Portrait Photography
There are a variety of ways to photograph portraits. I mainly take traditional portraits where the subjects looks directly at the camera. This is because you are more likely to trust people that look at you. However, I am increasingly taking lifestyle and environmental portraits capturing people in a place that defines their personality. There is less posing and adjusting the placement of hands. As you can see in my portfolio I also take glamour portraits to highlight a woman’s beauty. This often involves professional makeup and the use of an extensive wardrobe.
Portrait Photo Shoots
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.
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.
Photos help you 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.
Bridal and Cherish The Dress Portraits

Bridal portraits give a bride the opportunity to wear their dresses for a portrait photo shoot, in a location of their choice, before their wedding. After the wedding this is traditionally known as a Cherish The Dress photo shoot. If you would like some creative outdoor portraits in your wedding dress, with your husband or a small group please let me know your requirements.
If you are having a small informal wedding and require one to two hours photography outdoors after your ceremony, I can also provide this service for you.
A Cherish The Dress photo shoot also gives you the opportunity to be photographed in a prom dress, evening dress, ball gown or any special dress of your choice. You will enjoy having some special images and memories to treasure forever.

Portrait Photography – Top Tips
For the best effect choose clothing in keeping with your surroundings like in the beach image below. However, sometimes wearing clothes in complete contrast to your surroundings such as a wedding dress on a beach (as shown above) also works.
Ideally change your clothes every 10 – 15 minutes. As a result you will get a much better variety of images from your photo shoot. Choose a bright overcast day for your photo shoot and a location with a variety of backdrops.
