Mastering Portrait Photography

Mastering Portrait Photography

Sarah Plater and Paul Wilkinson present a modern approach to portraiture that aims to capture a moment in the lifestyle of the person or persons in the picture, with clear, concise jargon-busting text that discusses the essential technical aspects of photography. With advice on setting up a small studio at home, choice of backgrounds and using artificial light, plus hints and tips on make-up, hair styling and suitable clothing for the subject of the portrait.

Sarah Plater began experimenting with film photography over 15 years ago, transitioning to digital as it became more affordable. She then spent three years working at a high street photography studio, before leaving to concentrate on natural light portraiture. She has written for several popular photography magazines.

Paul Wilkinson is a multi-award winning portrait and wedding photographer, partner photographer to chef Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, and the Crazy Bear Group. He was voted Master Photographers Association UK Bridal Image of the Year 2014, and UK Lifestyle and Location Portrait Photographer of the Year 2014. His stylish, relaxed and personal images have resulted in him becoming one of the leading photographers in the country.
