A professional environmental portrait photographer since 2008, Paul David Smith has photographed people from all walks of life throughout the UK and abroad. He specialises in environmental location portraits, achieving a much more personal photograph by finding a location which relates to the person being photographed. 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.
We’ll agree on a location in our preparation for the shoot and meet there, as we explore and try to get the best from the location this will normally take around an hour to complete the shoot.
Your photoshoot will take place at an agreed location. Please enter your desired location into the box above when booking. If you do not have an exact location in mind, tell us the type of location you’d like and we can make suggestions. For example: woodlands, lakes, urban city, etc.
