Not everyone likes having their portrait photo taken, especially those who are camera-shy or feel self-conscious about their appearance. But if you are going to have your photo taken, or are going to inflict it on someone else, then you want to find a professional photographer who makes it painless, maybe even fun, and who will give you amazing portraits at the end of the experience.

As a professional commercial portrait photographer, I have worked with tons of people with different feelings about portrait photography. I understand that it’s not easy to pose in front of a stranger. It can feel awkward and make you feel uneasy. However, as your photographer, I will make sure you feel at ease and relaxed throughout the photo shoot. I believe that relaxed and happy people make the best pictures.

So, if you’re looking for a professional portrait photographer, get in touch with me today.

Benefits of Commercial Portrait Photos

You can use your portrait photos in a lot of ways. Whether you’re trying to impress a company you want to work with, update your portfolio, make a good first impression on your audience, or improve your brand reputation online, commercial portrait photography Sydney is your best choice.

You and I will work together to create the most stunning portrait photo that you can use in so many ways. But before that, here is a list of the different benefits you can get from portrait photography.

It Can Boost Your Confidence

Not all people have confidence, especially those who are not used to being in front of the camera. However, if you want to come out of your comfort zone, one of the best things to do is to try portrait photography. Portrait photography can help boost your confidence by letting you try something new but not too extreme. It can also help you get used to being the centre of attention.

Proof Of Your Beauty (Especially If You Can’t See It)

All people are beautiful. But sometimes people don’t believe that they are beautiful unless they see it themselves. Portrait photos have the power to let you see just how beautiful you are.

A Gift For Future Generations

Having portrait photos of yourself and other family members will make a wonderful gift for future generations. These portrait pictures can be passed from one generation to another so your legacy will be known even after many years have passed.

A Reminder Of How You Look

Another great thing about portrait photos is that you can use them to remind yourself or remember how you look as years pass by.

How To Choose Among Different Portrait Photographers

There are thousands of portrait photographers today. And each one of them has their own sets of skills and photography style. That’s why I like to remind my clients and future customers to choose a portrait photographer that suits their personality the most.

Here are some things you need to consider when choosing a portrait photographer.


The only source of knowledge is experience. Many photographers are skilled but not everyone has the right experience. The first thing you need to consider when looking for a photographer is someone with enough experience. When a photographer is experienced, he or she is focused on bringing out the best in you and not worrying about their equipment or how to deal with any curveballs.


Photographers are busy people. So if you’re looking forward to having your picture taken for a certain occasion, you need to find a professional photographer who is available during the time you are available as well. If you want to work with a specific photographer, it’s best to schedule an appointment as early as possible to make sure you book them first.


Look for a photographer who has a rate or pricing that fits your budget. You can ask your photographer beforehand so you can be assured that you have the right amount of budget to pay them after the shoot.

Portrait photography is a genre of photography that involves taking photographs of people and usually focuses on the face. It can be used for a variety of purposes, including personal, business, or political. Portrait photography is often conducted in studios, but can also be done in outdoor locations such as parks, gardens, or other public places. Portrait photography has been around since the early days of photography. Early portrait photographers used various techniques to capture the faces of their subjects, such as making use of shadows and light to create contrast and highlight features. Nowadays, with the advent of digital technology, portrait photographers have more tools at their disposal to create stunning images.


I specialise in commercial portrait photography, meaning that I spend the much of my time working with talent. This might be in house talent, such as key staff, or it could be professional talent hired for the assignment. Either way, one of my skills is to get the very best out of that person.

I am able to build a relationship with someone quickly, to communicate what I need from them, and to get the very best out of them. I pride myself on being able to deliver outstanding results with the minimum amount of fuss.


I offer professional commercial and corporate photography services. The vast majority of my work is undertaken on location, usually at client premises or client sites. I can also access a range of studios and other commercial spaces where required.

I have developed relationships with a range of highly skilled and experienced professionals in related industries, including hair and make up artists (HMUAs), stylists, assistants, digi techs, and videographers.

I can make all the arrangements with these people, or am happy to pass on their details so you can contact them directly – just get in touch and I’ll connect you.

Bring a few different outfits that have different cuts, styles and colours. Think about which parts of your body want to show off and ensure that the clothing will work.

There’s no strict definition for either term, and they are often used interchangeably along with similar terms such as professional photos or business photos.

Broadly, a headshot is more about what someone looks like and is generally a tighter shot of the head and shoulders. It is often shot against a plain background and the subject is usually looking directly at the camera. On most social media platforms the photo is square or circular.

A portrait meanwhile might show more of a person, both literally and figuratively. Crucially, a portrait will often seek to communicate more than just what someone looks like and tell us more about who they are. The setting is often environmental, such as a place of work, and might tell us about their job or role.

Headshots are well suited to social media profiles, staff photos on client communications, internal comms, or staff directories. Portraits might be used to tell a more in depth story about specific individuals and are typically used in external communications such as annual reports, PR or marketing materials.

Once we know how the photos will be used we can discuss different options with you to deliver the images you need.

We are able to arrange a hair and make-up artist to be on site for the shoot, however please note that a full makeover takes 30-45 minutes per person at a minimum. Often a quick touch up service for both men and women is all that’s needed.

Even without a professional HMUA on the shoot, we know a few tricks to help people look great (think powder, blotting tissue, lint roller, hair spray, etc).

 We have professional photographic lighting equipment which we bring to your location. and can set up an “on-site” studio or we can use the office environment as the backdrop. We are often shooting on location
