Have you ever seen an old oil painting or picture and just starred at it not knowing why it holds a certain attraction to you?
Classically painted portraits have a certain depth to them that brings a sense of realism and makes them stand out. The way they are lit and the composition draws us in as a viewer and makes us wonder how they can look so lifelike.
A Fine Art Portrait shoot works on similar principles, taking inspiration from 'Old Masters' such as Rembrandt and recreated in a studio environment to give that classic painterly look.
This is enhanced further with the styling of your shots. You don’t have to have Victorian clothes or a flat cap, you can wear modern dresses and smart casual wear if that suits you, but it is a smarter look rather than t-shirt and jeans.
More time is taken to create a fantastic look that will create a wow factor on your walls. Fine art portraits look great on individuals but can work really well for family groups and siblings alike.
“What an amazing experience from begining to end. Sam had such a wonderful time and we got an amazing set of pictures that we can treasure forever.”
"Portraits have the remarkable power to capture not just the physical likeness of a person, but also their essence, their story, and their humanity. They are windows into the past, reflections of the present, and legacies for the future. Through portraits, we immortalize the unique narratives of individuals, preserving their beauty, strength, vulnerability, and the complexity of their emotions. Portraits remind us that every life is significant, every face tells a tale, and every soul deserves to be seen and celebrated."
The first thing you need to do is purchase your portrait experience. Once this is complete your details will be sent direct to so that we can get in touch and discuss your experience further and find a date that works for you.

Proudly display your finished artwork in your home, pride of place for all to enjoy your special bond.
“Had a brilliant family portrait session with Andy, which made it fun having 2 very young children with us. The quality of the photos is absolutely stunning and are a beautiful keepsake for us. The choice of frames are exceptional.
I Highly recommend Andy Whittaker Photography.
“I cannot recommend Andy highly enough. The whole experience of the photoshoot. The photo viewing session was amazing. He was so patient with my family during the photoshoot and took so many brilliant photos it was difficult to choose which ones we wanted. Thank you Andy. The photos look great in my lounge”
“Amazing experience. Andy was so patient with us as we brought along a 5 year old, a 6 month old and our dog so was quite challenging to get them all to be still and look at the camera smiling! The images we have received are amazing, we are so in love with them and such good quality prints! Definitely recommend Andy to anyone who is considering having a family shoot and getting some lovely family portraits for their home”
