Meet Jonathan and Russell.
Jonathan contacted me a while ago, interested in having some romantic portraits taken with his partner Russell. The original idea had been around Valentine’s day but my schedule dictated otherwise, so Jonathan had elected to wait until I was available.
Meeting Jonathan and Russell, it was clear that they are very close. A quick chat about exactly the sort of pictures they were after, and we started shooting. Here are the lads at the start of the shoot.
After shooting a few ‘standard’ portraits to allow the guys time to relax it was time to start shooting the more intimate poses Jonathan had asked me for. It’s a strange thing to be posing like this for a camera, but both the guys listened carefully as we discussed various poses, and happily followed instructions to the letter.
Anyone who has been to us before will be able to vouch for how bizarre and non-intimate my home studio really is… very little space, and certainly not the most romantic of settings when full of lighting equipment and various other photographic paraphernalia!
With this in mind, take a look at the pictures below, and I think you’ll agree that the pictures really do have a very intimate feel to them.
And if you want an even more romantic look to your room (if the computers, lamps, tripods and stands haven’t put you off just yet)… there’s always candle-power!
Well that’s it for now. Well done guys – I do hope you like the pictures.

As is usual, any comments are fully welcomed… and if you want your own set of romantic or intimate photos with a partner, why not get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.
All the best,
