Self Portraits

A self portrait of Tony Sale

As a photographer however I also think it’s important to undertake personal projects and to have a focus on doing something different, something purely for my own interest. In the past, for example, portrait projects have included representing concepts such as ’loneliness’ and ‘isolation’ and, ‘The Face the Story’, a study of the hidden and extraordinary life of everyday people we would normally pass in the street on a daily basis.

This year I my project will be ‘self-portraits’

What is a self-portrait and why do you want to do that? I hear you ask.

A self-portrait is a representation of an artist, drawn, painted, photographed, or sculpted by the artist. Although self-portraits have been made by artists since the earliest times, it was in the Early Renaissance in the mid-15th century

Portrait Photography – Nikki (part 1)

Model Photography

I recently spent a few days training with photographer John Denton and his wife Liz at their studios near Beverley in East Yorkshire. What an excellent weekend it was, the Saturday and Sunday were both full days of shooting with two different models booked by John and on the Monday was an excellent and informative / interactive input from with Liz on the business and marketing and more importantly branding side of the photography business.

Family Portrait Photography in Gosfield Essex by Portrait Photographer Tony Sale

Family portrait photography Colchester Essex

I love photographing portraits whether it is in the studio, at client’s homes or else lifestyle portraits outside or on location. This particular session was photographed in my home studio.
I was contacted by Natalie, who lives in earls Colne, a few weeks previously, saying that she wanted some portraits taken of her mum, her sister, her daughter and herself and she wanted a mixture with some shots of them all together and some taken individually.

Family Portrait Photography – Halstead Essex

I was recently commissioned to take some family portrait photographs to mark a 60th Birthday celebration. However not only was it the ‘mums’ birthday celebration it was also a family reunion as it was a fairly unique opportunity for all the family members to get together all at the same time, people had travelled from across Essex and from as far away as Surrey.
There were 12 people in all, as well as three dogs who wanted to get in on the act.

Children’s portrait photography

Children’s portrait photography – ‘studio portrait photography’’

Kian is going to be two years old very soon and so his mum Abi decided it would be a good time to get some up to date portraits done. Having spent some time discussing her requirements we decided to go for a studio portrait shoot. She wanted a nice set of framed prints for their home and a selection of smaller photographs to give as gifts to relatives and friends.

Gaynor and Tony’s wedding – Prested Hall Kelvedon Essex

It was my privilege back on the 29th April to photograph the wedding of Gaynor and Tony at Prested Hall near Kelvedon in Essex. As I’m sure most of you remember this was also a special day for another wedding as well – of course I’m referring to the Royal Wedding of William and Kate at Westminster Abbey. (As I had already agreed to photograph Gaynor and Tony’s wedding I unfortunately had to let Will’s and Kate down! But I think they managed to find someone else!).
