Creative Portraiture Photography
Model Portfolios


In a nutshell

Kolokial Shots is based in South East Essex. Its run by me, Ian.  I offer relaxed, friendly and professional photographic services. I shoot Headshots for actors and Business professionals,  Creative Portraits,  Model Portfolios and various other portrait based styles of photography.

All about you

 I don’t pose you, I coach you.
I believe that having your picture taken should not be a scary experience, many people I know shy away from cameras, they say things like I don’t like my face, I’m not pretty, I’m not photogenic. These responses encourage a feeling of stress and anxiety, so  I work as hard as I can to keep you relaxed and enjoying the experience of having your photo taken. I have an array of techniques to do this, one of them is simply by asking questions. When was the last time you pretended to be a viking? See that right there, you forgot all about  pictures and started to think about something else and that is how I use conversation whilst taking pictures to get the best possible images of you. You all deserve a great portrait of yourself and I can help with that, just by having a chat.

Outside the studio

My approach doesn’t change even when working on location. I believe that an element of fun while working is a key ingredient to getting the best possible results from whoever I’m working with, so when I get away from the studio to shoot on location laughter and running around like a unleashed Labrador puppy is to be expected. I aim to make my conversations with you not only one you’ll enjoy but remember for every photo you have taken after.
