Portraits are our tuned memories. They express the best of us and make the traits of our characters prominent. They are endless emotions. I love to shoot portraits. My secret as a portrait photographer is to make my clients feel at ease as if we are friends. People often come in front of the camera with the rigid faces and that breaks the charm of the portrait. A perfect portrait is achieved when the person is expressing their unique self. My work often involves more talks than shots. Everybody can push the trigger but the secret of portraiture might lie on the bottom of a cup of tea. A portrait photo-session could be quite a challenge especially in nowadays busy lifestyles. People usually play different roles in their social lives, for example the role of a strict boss or a successful business lady. If a person needs a good portrait showing their unique personality the things to do are: find convenient time, put on comfortable clothes, get into a good mood and forget about everything else. I promise to help you out!

The moment they take their first steps, the adoring look between mother and baby, a romantic moment between a couple in love. It’s these moments we are passionate about capturing. We don’t tell you how to smile or pose, but rather use beautiful light and let you be yourself. The result is images that truly capture something you will treasure forever.

It’s a real skill to capture the essence of a person as they look their best. Our clients are not looking for the perfect shot, but something that captures who they really are. Peter Lane Photography has built a reputation for it’s beautiful, natural style of photography, both locally and internationally. Our goal is not to bring you over a paper background boring studio but to show the essence of you – in your home, on location, and of course a studio. Capture your little love this Valentine’s Day, Book her Birthday photography gift, their anniversary. Spoil someone special now with an exclusive Peter Lane Photography portrait photo session.

We offer a wide and creative range of photography services to choose from. Peter Lane’s portfolio includes portraits of politicians, TV and Media professionals, Fashion and Luxury business leaders but this is not something to show off because we don’t shoot the titles and tags, we shoot the soul, the moment, the expression. In our opinion, great headshots and portraits are personal, memorable and natural looking. The lights are spot on, the details are sharp, retouch work is invisible but incredibly flattering. The smile is real and the expression is natural and welcoming. Great headshots and portraits communicates who you are. They help you strengthen your personal branding and tell your story. They let you take control over your image.

Portraits are a crucial element of our public image and your personal branding. Our picture is the very first thing people see online and it’s crucial. A bad first impression lasts forever. A good headshot or portrait helps create a better first impression and give a better chance.

Yes. We cover the whole island and abroad. We do however have to add on a charge to cover petrol and on rare occasions accommodation costs however we try to keep these costs to a minimum by only charging the cost of the petrol and daily bread.
Yes we do! Depends on your package. All of them are yours, edited, print ready in hi-res, having “Home Use Rights” which means that you can print them wherever you want.
We try to deliver up to 2 days after the photo shoot, because we know how important for you is to enjoy and share the images with friends and relatives.
