Kids Hobbies Portraits-Bill Leighton Studio, Shrewsbury

We approach our Hobby photo shoots starting with some classic portrait shots to warm up our models. The use of dramatic lighting is used throughout the session. This style of lighting is important in giving depth to our portraits and essential to Fine Art Photography.

If using props we then start to establish some initial ideas and explore various poses. For action shots the use of high speed sync equipment is used, this is needed to freeze the subject and captures them perfectly in the moment, producing images with energy! We use this a lot with Ballet, Dance, Gymnastics and Martial Arts shoots.

Sports and Martial Arts Portraits

When photographing our sports and martial arts shoots we combine portrait and action shots to produce both serious and fun images. We also produce a multi image action shot if possible so we can capture the movement we see in sports.

Creating unique portaits.

Kids Hobby shoots can include anything your kids take an interest in, such as art, books, fancy dress, martial arts, and anything they love. These portraits are designed to tell the story of what makes them unique.

Lots of children are also music mad and we have found that photographing them with their musical instruments is a great way to create lovely timeless portraits that are stunning to view.

We also specialise in dance photography and sports photography for kids. This is where we can have some fun with action shots and create portraits showing them in action helping them to visualise just how good they can be.

Musical Portraits

From capturing classical portraits to something more modern we absolutely love the opportunity of creating striking images that capture the interest that music holds for these subjects.
