Portrait Photography

1803Photography specialise in Fine Art Portrait photography - whether that be studio based or out on location.
We bring a modern, contemporary approach to our work, drawing inspiration from some of the top fine art photographers around the world, as well as the Renaissance Masters. We believe that it is our attention to detail that sets us apart from other photographers.

If you are looking for something a bit different from the sterile white backgrounds that you see in many portraits then 1803Photography are the photographers for you. Using a mixture of the great outdoors and our professional studios, we will create wonderful portraits for you to treasure forever. In the studio we have a selection of backdrops for you to choose; whether that be muslin for the fine art, painterly look, paper for a modern approach or vinyl for a more vintage theme. Outside we know lots of great locations in the vicinity for you to have your portraits captured; that could be the forest, the rivers and lochs or even a castle. We are also more than happy for you to choose a location that holds special meaning to you and your family. 

We will select the best photos from the session, carefully and tastefully edit and retouch them and then show them to you using a video slidehsow at our studio at your viewing session, usually 7-10 days after your session. Alternatively, an online proofing gallery can be provided. A price list will be provided to you upon booking or on request with prices of the artwork that we typically provide. If you are looking for a non-typical size we will be happy to provide you with a price - please just ask.

All of our artwork is ordered from a professional print lab here in Scotland. Every piece of artwork that you order is carefully tailored to your request and we make sure that the technical specification is accurate and optimised for every image. Images are also processed on a calibrated monitor ensuring accurate colouring and are also colour checked at the printing lab.
