Portrait Photoshoots for Professionals

Sometimes a headshot may not be enough to tell your story if you’re looking for background images for a website or publication.

A headshot is all about the head and shoulders whereas a portrait is from head to toe.

On a headshot, I try to remove distractions from the photograph but on a portrait image, we can add many things to enhance the photo from props to lighting changes.

Portraits can be environmental, (at your place of work) or place of choice as well as my studio.

I can also shoot editorial style and include workmates and capture the genuine feel of your product or industry or field of expertise.

Business portraits are suitable for:

  • Staff Headshots

  • Office Headshots

  • Employee Headshots

  • Student Headshots

  • Doctor Headshots

  • Barrister / Solicitor Headshots

  • Real Estate Headshots

I’m so happy with my photos, thank you! I’d absolutely recommend Steve with no hesitation. I needed professional headshots for work but I’m not that comfortable getting my photo taken or posing. Steve made me feel really at ease and got some gorgeous photos if I do say so myself. Really professional, fun and relaxed atmosphere in the studio. One very happy customer here.

From the moment of contacting Steve Lowrey Photography the process was easy. We discussed what I needed from the photo shoot and how he would be able to help. The email communication before the shoot that had helpful advice and set out what to expect helped immensely. In the studio Steve makes you feel extremely relaxed and is an absolute professional at his job. He knows how to get the best out of you and is a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend him highly enough so if you are looking for a photographer who knows his stuff and will get the shots you need STOP LOOKING AND BOOK STEVE LOWREY.

Booking the session was easy and Steve was really great to work with – he understood exactly what sort of photo i was looking for. He was very patient and offered great advice on what i was looking for for my business photo. Choosing the photos was easy and they came back within a week which i was very impressed with. My family and friends are so impressed with his work they are booking a session to update their photos too.

Specialising in professional headshot & portrait photography happened just a few years ago.  Having a fantastic across the board knowledge in most types of portrait photography, particularly publicity headshots for entertainers, I decided to specialise in what I love doing the most.

The interaction with other people from all types of professions and backgrounds with differing goals and desires is extremely interesting and lots of fun.

I also work with professional make-up artists if you would like to hire one with your photoshoot, just let me know.
