Hi, my name is Scott. I run ‘The Portr-Art® Studio’ in beautiful historic Wingham. I have been an active photographer for almost 20 years, and although being formally educated in the art, most of my real knowledge has been gained from experiences with people and actually just getting out there and doing it. Portrait photography to me is not primarily about technical calculations, it is about personality and emotion and about capturing those, often subtle, nuances of character. Then it’s adding a little bit of darkroom magic, ok then – ‘digital’ magic! - and printing it to the highest possible quality so that the work of art can be shared and appreciated.
My life experiences and personality make the way I approach portraiture quite simple: take your awesome personality, unique appearance and family dynamics, add a large scoop of experience, a handful of lenses and a couple of cameras, mix all of this together with just the right amount of lighting and bake for 90 minutes in an atmosphere of laughter and excitement and you have the valuable experience of simply enjoying each other’s company as you spend time together as a family; an experience that will be captured forever in the priceless photographs that have been created.
It is the sharing of these moments with our family and friends that makes memories truly priceless, and there is no better way of sharing them than with photos.
