Creative, Natural

Portrait Photography

in Kent

Lifestyle Photography

is a term favoured by The Americans. They use it specifically to mean photos shot outside or in a real-life setting.

I LOVE shooting outside on location, but I also believe the same principles of relaxed, natural photos can be applied to a studio shoot as well.

I’m not like all the other photographers. I’m from a family of artists, creativity runs in my blood. I’m also a Thoroughly Decent Chap, and won’t make you say “Cheese”. You’ll like me.

Here’s why you can trust me with your family’s shoot.

“Tim helped us all feel really relaxed which resulted in some of the most beautiful pictures of me my sisters and niece. I would definitely use Tim again.”

Tim took some family portraits for us with our new born baby when she was 6 weeks old. We were all a bit sleep deprived and not quite feeling ourselves but Tim was very patient with us and put us at ease. As a result we have some very special photographs that we treasure. Thank you!

“Tim is lovely understanding of young children, adults and dogs. He produced some beautiful natural photographs we were very pleased with. I started by wanting a photo of my Family in the end I chose four as I was so taken with them. Really excellent!”

Kent Portrait Photographer

I’m based in Folkestone, Kent, and regularly shoot families from all over the county, as well as from Sussex and London.

“I love shooting outside on location – there are some lovely beaches, parks and so on near the studio. However if you’ve got a favourite spot somewhere within about 10 miles of Folkestone that’s good with me. Prefer a weather-proof studio shoot? No worries, we can do that too.”
