Portraits from a safe distance (and remotely)
Hi, I'm Dan. I want to help you capture you and your loved ones.
Family PORCHrait. Couples PORCHrait.
Self PORCHrait. Pet PORCHrait.
PORCHrait photoshoots are available remotely (using just your mobile phone) or in person (in Leeds area).
All images are taken from a safe distance.
Sessions are £40 and include a private online gallery and 3 professionally-edited high resolution images.
£10 from each session is donated to b:friend, a charity who is working tirelessly to combat social isolation amongst elderly neighbours in our community.
"Dan made us feel very at ease during the photo shoot and was an absolute star with our very lively toddler! We couldn’t falter his professionalism and are so happy with the final photos which will be cherished forever."
"Dan is fabulous at just capturing the moment in a relaxed fun way. Would highly recommend to anyone who like me has a husband who never takes any pictures!"
"I nearly didn't do the PORCHrait shoot as we're in the middle of a huge house and garden renovation and to say the place isn't at its best is an understatement. Dan completely saw past this and managed to get some shots for us which captured some reality, without the place looking like a building site! I absolutely love them and can't wait to get them up on the wall."
Julia - Mum, eco-warrior and entrepreneur
"When I viewed the photos online, I cried!!! I’ve tried for years to capture our ever-moving family, but have never been successful.
Dan captured us perfectly - I love them 😍 and so does the hubby. I can’t thank Dan enough, and the grandparents will absolutely love them too."
Natasha - Entrepreneur, mum and crisp-lover
"Dan made us feel so relaxed, the shoot felt more like having a mate round to take your picture than anything and the images are testament to that - we look natural and happy; exactly what we were after.
It’s been a very surreal experience having a baby in lockdown, but being able to capture family pictures when we wouldn’t have done otherwise is priceless, we’re so chuffed with the images and will treasure them as our little man grows up."
Naomi & Sean
"I booked a birthday PORCHrait as a fun treat. We had a lot of fun and Dan mad us laugh a lot during the shoot, which shows in the images. We are really happy with them and know that the family will love them too."
Sally - mum to Maggie the puss-cat, eco-warrior, mountain biker and origami folder
"Everything was just easy. Dan was brilliant at engaging with the kids, made us all feel relaxed and managed to capture our personalities perfectly. We’re so happy with the photos."
Amy - mum and wife
"Dan made us all feel like he wasn’t even there but we also felt like we’d known him for years; a rare skill. In about 10 minutes we were all done (which I think is especially important if you have kids or feel awkward in front of the camera).
The images are incredible. They’re raw and capture us as a family. I can’t recommend Dan enough as a photographer and a creative. The ‘porchrait’ experience was so much fun. He also has excellent taste in vintage jackets."
Ellie - stylist, entrepreneur, wife and mum
"I could have never imagined that we’d be having our babies during a global pandemic. Dan took fantastic pictures for us! I know they’re going to help us remember this very special and very weird time in our lives."
Melanie - nutritionist, entrepreneur and mum to twins Rowan and Lior
"Huge thanks to Dan for coming and taking some pictures of us during such a weird time.
I was conscious that we wouldn't get any school photographs of the kids this year and doing this seemed like a nice way to mark what's been such a strange period of time.
We've also been able to send prints to family around the country who we're not able to see at the moment, I know they'll be thrilled to receive them."
