Top Portrait Photographers related questions

When you hire a portrait photographer with Airtasker, you won't have to call photo companies one by one and adjust to their costs or tight scheduling. Through our platform, you can easily find a pool of talented photographers in a few taps, and personally choose the most creative individual who best matches your style and budget. Also, you can confirm their credentials by checking their photography portfolio, work history, and ratings.
Not to be confused with lifestyle photography, portrait photography has planned poses, movements, and facial expressions. It's rarely candid, but it shouldn't look forced or blank as well. Instead, it's all about rehearsing the most natural emotions and expressions to portray the message of the photo better.
It's highly likely that professional photographers already have their own camera gear, so you won't need to provide anything else. If you're planning to do a creative shoot, you can bring your own accessories, props, make-up, and other things, so you're more comfortable during the photo session. In case you need additional equipment, feel free to coordinate with your photographer so they can prepare accordingly before your photoshoot.
It depends on the services needed. If you've only commissioned your photographer solely to take pictures, they should be able to hand over the photos right after the shoot, or after a day at best. Extensive editing and retouches may take more days to complete, depending on the post-processing you require and the volume of the photos. Give your Tasker at least a week if you also need your photos printed in canvas or folio.

Since portraits tend to highlight your facial features and expressions, it's good to wear something simple and not too overbearing. Although it still depends on the portrait service you need and the theme that you are going for. To be sure, you can coordinate with your photographer before the photoshoot and ask them on what and what not to wear. You can also hire our make-up artists or hairdressers if you need help with hair and make-up.
Definitely! Spare yourself from all the hassle of going through different websites to find a commercial photographer. On the same platform, you can easily find a range of photographers who can help you market your business. We have our photographers specialising in fashion, food, product, and more. Don't forget to mention the nature of your business so we can connect you with suitable photographers.

What does portrait photography include?

Our professional portrait photography service focuses on capturing a person's facial features while emphasising on their identity, personality and emotions. It doesn't necessarily need to take place in a studio; it could be taken outdoors or indoors, at the park, in a garden, or anywhere as long as it won't distract the portrait subject. If you're planning to get a professional portrait photo, here are some of the services that you can book from us:

Black and white portrait photography

Black and white portrait photography remains a long-standing favourite in the world of photography. Even in this digital age, it is the only genre that can produce the most dramatic and soulful photos. Our portrait photographers can plan the perfect B&W setting for you. Skilled and professional, they know the best way to balance the light and darkness for maximum impact.

Creative portrait photography

With creative shots, our creative portrait photographers step out of the usual static pictures. For a twist, they may use a few props, a unique costume, or a backup story. They may also take photos in different angles–from the ground, side, or even from behind. If you want to know how they produce creative portraits, you can ask your photographer to give you a few samples before you proceed with the photoshoot.

Studio portrait photography

While it seems similar to headshot photography, studio portrait photography is a little less formal and it presents photos in a more artistic way. For this shoot, your photographer handles the lighting scheme, the backdrop, the combinations of colours and textures. All you have to do is show up with your best look and outfit, and prepare your unique poses.

Light portrait photography

The key to successful light portraits is mastering the different lighting patterns and techniques. Even with just a single light, your photographer can produce portrait photos with that focus on all sorts of emotions. But that's not all. They can also take creative shots using reflective props such as fairy lights, lamps, prisms, or disco balls. With the right camera settings adjusted to the lighting requirements, you can enjoy a stunning light portrait photo that is worth space in your social media, or your photo book.

Editing and Printing

Through our platform, you'll find skilled Taskers who can also assist you with the photo retouches and editing. According to your needs, they can remove any unwanted details, add artistic effect, modify lights and tones, and more. Edited photos are sent through email or with a USB stick. Want them on canvas? Our Taskers can also organise printing of your final portrait photos and deliver them straight to your doorstep.
