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.
Our absolute priority is keeping you and ourselves safe during your photoshoot, with this in mind we have implemented the following procedures to ensure we can all enjoy the photoshoot safely:
This photoshoot will take place outdoors where it has been scientifically proven that the risk of Coronavirus transmission is much less.
We will maintain 2 metre social distancing at all times, this is easy as we will be outside anyway.
All equipment used will be disinfected both before and after your photoshoot.
Hand sanitizer, gloves and hand-washing facilities will be readily available at all times.
Paul has been tested for Coronavirus which came back negative.
Your photoshoot will take place at an agreed location. Please enter your ideal 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.
Please enter your shoot into the form above, there are no additional travel costs for environmental portrait sessions within 20 miles of Newquay, Cornwall. Please note: If your shoot location is further than 20 miles from Newquay, Cornwall we will charge very reasonable travel costs.
We are able to provide a professional hair and makeup artist for this shoot should you wish. This is an additional fee of £75.00. Please note this fee is not set by us and we make no profit on it. Should you wish to arrange your own hair and makeup artist or do it yourself then this is perfectly OK.
All of your photos will be professionally edited and you will receive all of the selected high-resolution photos from the session via digital download. We know you want to look your best and that is why we professionally edit each and every image to a high standard. We won’t change anything major and we won’t do it without your consent. No huge body shape changes, no changing of hair colours or anything crazy, we’re just polishing the fine details of the image to make them the best they can be.
Dependent upon how many images you require your environmental portrait photography session will last between 30 minutes and an hour.
Our standard base fee delivers 5 professionally edited, high-resolution photos of your choice. You can choose to receive more images at the time of booking for an additional fee.

Yes of course, you are very welcome to bring somebody with you.
We 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.
The fee and/or deposit you pay secures your chosen date and is only refundable up to 7 days prior to your booked portrait session date. If your booked portrait session date falls within the next 7 days then this is non-refundable under any circumstances.
