Welcome!! 

I shoot modern portraits that tell personal stories of YOU and those special to you.  Portraits that celebrate personal growth and beauty, treasured connections and visual narratives of LOVE. 

When was the last time you were professionally photographed? Or when was the last time you had images of yourself and your family, that you loved?     

Through tailor-made portrait sessions in studio or on-location, we will work together to produce wonderful images that you will treasure now and for years to come!  I am a Birmingham Portrait Photographer.. 

                                                           Let me tell YOUR story!!

Birmingham Headshots 

Are you a business owner, SME or digital entrepreneur?

I can help to improve your marketing and appeal to their target audience by providing high-quality, personal and engaging content, specific to your brand.  With relevant imagery you can communicate what you do and who you are successfully and effectively.

Shooting Personal Branding, Headshots and social-media-ready collections for you, you will enhance your online presence and boost and strengthen your brand.

Afterall, If YOU’RE, not telling the story of YOUR brand, someone else is.  Or worse still, YOUR telling the story of someone else’s brand!!

As a visual storyteller, this is what I do, so, let me help you tell YOUR story!

Raphael Lionel will always be my go to studio for photography.. I felt looked after, understood and he made the effort to get to know me.

When seeing the edits.. I was more than impressed with the quality.. so much so that I purchased more than I initially wanted!

Swallows Nest Barn Wedding

Tom and Ewa had a Swallows Nest Barn wedding in the summer of this year. Coming out of months of lockdown this was the ideal venue.  A rustic barn with exposed beams and good ventilation held the civil ceremony and wedding breakfast.  Adjacent to this, there is an attractive, south-facing walled courtyard, with mature olive trees scattered about, which gave the guests a great backdrop to talk and interact.

Virtual Open Day – Hall Green School

Virtual Open Days for schools and colleges are becoming more and more popular especially since the Covid 19 pandemic.

Hall Green School chose to have a virtual open day this year and subsequently, asked me to produce a film for the school website. It illustrates the school ethos of ‘learning together and shaping the future’.

Pet Portrait Birmingham

This pet portrait shoot was special.  Little Max has been a part of the family for 11 years and Geema has had him since he was 9 weeks old.

Newborn Photoshoot – Little Theo

The Newborn photoshoot for little Theo took place early in the year, just before the original lockdown for Covid-19.  After what was a traumatic introduction into the world little Theo was warmly welcomed into the family!

Male Portraits – Shaun Lakha

Shooting male portraits requires a different approach to shooting women.  Shaun and I had a great time shooting this session in the studio a few months ago and captured some great images. Although the lighting setups are almost identical there are key posing rules to remember that make male portraits visually pop and impress.  I detail a few of these male posing tips here in this post.
