What should I wear for a portrait photoshoot in London?

It really depends on the type of portrait shoot you’ve got booked but there are several rules of thumbs that are worth considering.

It’s generally best to wear clothes that make you look good without distracting attention away from you. Plain tops are usually a good choice for portraits, as they allow the viewer to focus on your face. If it’s a business portrait or a personal branding portrait, consider what impression you want to give to the viewer.
Strong colours will usually draw attention away from you and it’s best to wear neutral colours that complement your skintone.

Do portrait photographers in London have a studio?

Some London portrait photographers will have their own studio, while others will rent a studio for the day. If you’re looking for studio portraits in London, it’s important to discuss the cost of the studio with your photographer. It could be included in the price and it could sometimes be an additional cost.

Why you should book photographers directly

Although we are a platform for booking photography, our core principal and belief is that all booking and communication should happen directly with the photographer.

When you book a visual creative service like photography the process is collaborative. While some platforms try to commoditise creativity and profit by taking advantage of creatives the loss is for both the clients (those booking the photographers) and the photographers.

When you come to book photography, 9 times out of 10 you will have a specific vision in mind. Your ability to collaborate and communicate with your photographer is what sparks the magic. We want you to immerse yourself in the creative project. The more you put in, the more you get out of your creative relationship.

Photographerforhire.co.uk is the first step in your journey. We play an important part in bringing photographers and those in need of photography together. But we don’t want to interfere. We’re here to help you connect and you can take this connection to your own level of high.

If you’re booking a local wedding photographer, a family portrait or a top commercial photographer, you can find them all here. We ask all our users to treat each other with respect and understanding and hope that your collaboration will lead to the creation of incredible photography that makes you happy.

Feel inspired and enjoy the ride.
