My Virtual Photoshoot Marathon
This is week 3 of my virtual photoshoot marathon! And I am loving it! I first discovered the magic of virtual photoshoots via my friend Tim Dunk, who has been doing these types of photos since Lockdown #1. I had been admiring his photos for almost a year before I plucked up the courage to have my own shoot (I shall include a few at the bottom of this post) and after I did, I decided to give it a go myself. It is safe to say I have fallen in love with virtual photography and the way I can use remote photography to create amazing portraits.
Travelling the world without leaving the house
3 weeks on and I have been to the other side of the world in Chile with a friend, hanging with trapeze artist Kate up in Glasgow and just around the corner in Nottingham, all without leaving the house! The joy of the virtual photoshoot is that you need nothing more than your own phone, some window light and a tin of beans. If you get in touch for your own shoot, I shall explain all. But it is really simple! I connect to your phone, tell you where to put it and where to stand and the fun begins. Thats all there is to having a remote photoshoot. You provide the phone and I do all the work!
Here are a few of my latest virtual photoshoots. You can also see more on my previous two blogs on this subject remote portraits and more virtual portraits here.. And for daily updates you can follow me on instagram.

My own experience:
I really enjoyed my own photoshoot with Tim (above) Firstly, I think if you are going to take virtual photographs it is useful to have experience on the other side too! Also it is fair to say I enjoyed the experience. It was really nice to actually brush my hair and put some makeup on! Furthermore, its also something different to do in lockdown, for not much more than the cost of a takeaway! So, grab the app. Give me a call, and book in a remote session!
