Models, dancers, Sports & Fashion Photography

Get the image you need from Atherton Photography Studio in Manchester M46.

If you are a professional or just starting out in your field,  an inspired model looking for a portfolio perhaps, sometimes you need more than a headshot.

The word portrait seems to cover almost everything else so let us keep the definition wide open. Anything from head to toe and any background/backdrop you desire.

Portraits for Professionals by Professionals

For the business and arts industries, sometimes a headshot is just not enough and we can expand to portraits, full-body, and three-quarter length shots. 

These can be for yourself or at the request of your agent representative, whatever the request I will deliver your photoshoot outside in natural daylight or in our fully equipped studio. 

Portrait photography can also involve the use of props so if you have any particular ideas, please be sure to send them over.

Creative portrait photoshoots are available

The word professional covers so many genres.


Whatever your skilled profession, I will give you the headshot or portrait you have always wanted.

Sometimes a headshot may not be enough to tell your story if you’re looking for background images for a website or publication.

A headshot is all about the head and shoulders whereas a portrait is from head to toe.

On a headshot, I try to remove distractions from the photograph but on a portrait image, we can add many things to enhance the photo from props to lighting changes.

Portraits can be environmental, (at your place of work) or place of choice as well as my studio.

I can also shoot editorial style and include workmates and capture the genuine feel of your product or industry or field of expertise.
