Portrait Photography


Paul David Smith has worked as a professional portrait photographer since 2008, photographing people from all walks of life throughout Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, the UK and abroad.

How It Works

  • Portrait sittings usually take place at Paul’s home studio in Stilton, Peterborough with a selection of coloured backgrounds available: White/Black/Grey/Yellow/Pink. If you require studio type shots to be taken at your location Paul can travel, however please note quite a large amount of space is required to setup backgrounds / lighting / etc.
  • If you would like a location based portrait (not a studio background) this is something Paul has plenty of experience with and he can usually make most locations work without issue. Travel for location based portraits is at no additional cost within the Peterborough area.
  • A typical portrait session will last around 45 – 60 minutes, this however is a guide and Paul will be flexible to ensure great portraits are captured every time.
  • All of your photos will be professionally edited and you will receive all of the selected high resolution photos from the session on a USB stick. Please note Paul will not try and sell you prints, if you require assistance getting the photos printed this can be arranged, however it’s so easy to do this yourself online or at a photo printing store.

Paul specialises in location and studio portraits, with each of the differing styles having their own benefits. Location portraits achieve a much more personal photograph by finding a background / location which relates to the subject. This has the potential to make the photograph more personal to the subject as well as putting them at ease in a situation / location they are familiar with.

Studio portraits allow for much cleaner looking images as the lighting, background and style can be controlled 100%. Paul runs shoots from his studio in Stilton, Peterborough but is also fully mobile and can setup anywhere so long as you have sufficient space to do so.
