Location Portraits Braintree.

Location Portraits Braintree with Jeff. This series of portraits were actually shot a couple of years back at Andrewsfield airfield near Great Dunmow. Jeff is actually a good friend of mine, a fellow photographer and a very keen cyclist, perhaps even more so now than he was then. He wanted some action shots of him with his bike, so off we set to have some fun. It’s great to take portrait photographs of someone whilst

New Born Baby Photography

New born photography Photographing baby Jude Perhaps one of the best times to photograph new born babies is when they are five to ten days old in any event I prefer it to be within the first two weeks of birth. At this age, they are more likely to curl up in “womb-like” poses; they stay asleep longer, don’t mind being unclothed, and usually have their feeding schedules set to at least every two hours.

Family Portrait Photography in Halstead

Portrait Photography with Chris & Ashleigh. I was fortunate enough to first meet Chris and Ashleigh back in 2010 when I photographed their wedding at Gosfield Hall. I then met them again, a few years later, when I photographed Kiri and Andrews wedding at St Peter’s church in Braintree. Kiri is Ashleigh’s sister and had been a bridesmaid at her wedding. Thanks for the recommendation Ashleigh Actually talking of recommendations, both Ashleigh and Kiri had

Portrait Photography Halstead

I was recently approached by two photography students, Becca and Jake, who wished to improve their photographic skills and experience, particularly in relation to portrait photography. Becca, you may remember from a previous blog, she assisted me a couple of months ago with a wedding at Gosfield Hall.

I invited them around to my home studio, along with Becca’s brother, Elliott where we spent a few hours practicing different lighting, posing and shooting techniques. They both thoroughly enjoyed the session (as did I)

Rob and Emma portrait shoot

 Location Portrait Photography Essex. For this portrait shoot with Rob and Emma we went off in to the countryside about 8.00PM in the evening. I wanted to make the most of the late evening sun (although actually there wasn’t a lot of it) but I also wanted to add some drama to the shots with some discerning use of off camera lighting. For the most part the off camera lighting was carefully blended with the

Baby portraits - Kian 2

Family Portrait Photography Halstead Essex The last time I photographed Kian he was not feeling too well. It was shortly before Christmas, he was teething and had patches of dry red skin on his face. He was tearful, grumpy and miserable (and I think I would be too). Although, on that occasion, we did get some nice photographs I thought we could do better. So I asked mum, Abi, to bring him back in the

Grandparents & Grandchildren portrait photography

Studio Portrait Photography with Grandparents & Grandchildren. I seem to have had a run on photographing grandparents together with their grandchildren recently, here is one of my latest shoots. Granddad, Ron didn’t want anything too fancy just a nice traditional portrait together with his wife Jean and grandchildren, Cameron and Amelia. So to keep things simple we started off with some nice straightforward studio shots based around a leather sofa. However, that was clearly too

Family Portrait Photography Gosfield | Halstead

Family Portrait Photography Gosfield I recently photographed Katie (aged 3) together with her glamorous grandma Jesse. At the time of the shoot Katie was actually only two, but it was her 3rd birthday 5 days later. She had never been photographed formally before and so I expected her to be a little shy / apprehensive. I therefore wanted to keep the shoot as informal and fun as I could. I had hoped for some nice

Essex Family Portraits - Paul, Lucy, Jack and Molly - By Essex based photographer Tony Sale Photography

Relaxed Fun loving Portrait Photography in the Studio. Once again the plan was to start in the studio and then venture out and do some cool outdoor lifestyle portraits. Once again though we were beaten by the weather. It had been fine earlier on in the morning but when we came to going out it was cold, dull and miserable, and it was pouring down. However we had great fun in the studio and got

Baby and Family Portraits Halstead

Studio & Location Portraits in Halstead Essex. Tabith is Jane and Dominic’s first child and they decided the time was right to get some professional portrait taken of her. Jane wanted some nice straight forward simple photographs but also wanted some of Tabitha in a fairy dress for possible use on Christmas cards. So some bright high key studio shots with a white background seemed to be the ideal setting. These were all shot in
