“Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure.”
- Tony Benn
Standard Portrait Packages - Individual and Family
Whether it is a professional headshot, modelling portfolio, family photoshoot or glamorous makeover photoshoot, we can accommodate you at Studio G as portrait photography is our first love.
Portrait sessions can be held in our modern and well equipped studio, out on location or even in your own home if that's where you feel comfortable. We believe that good portrait photography is about empowerment - making you feel you look your absolute best, but remaining true to the core of who you are. We will never ask anyone we photograph to do anything that makes them feel uncomfortable, just as we would never agree to photograph anything that made us uncomfortable. Quality, professionalism and respect are some of core values, but above all we are all about fun and enjoyment. We are absolutely passionate about what we do and we believe that shines through in our work. If we can help you to relax and enjoy your portrait session with us that will show in the images we produce. Our principal photographer, Lisa Marie Gee, is also a trained makeup artist and is very experienced in bringing out the natural beauty in her clients through lighting, posing and tricks to help facial expressions. Laughter is usually a large and important aspect of any portrait session at Studio G.
At Studio G we like to be upfront and transparent about our prices, so that you know exactly what you are getting for your money. You won't get the sort of hard sell that some other portrait photography studios use. But you will get as much help as you need in choosing how you want your beautiful portraits to be displayed. That might be in a lovely leather-bound album, a large wall canvas, or a specialist perspex collage from one of our high-end framing suppliers.
The images from your portrait session will be edited and you will be invited back to Studio G for an informal viewing session, where you will be able to see your photographs in high resolution, look at samples and examples of the wall and book products available, and take advantage of our experience in putting together beautiful wall art that you will cherish for years.
We keep our packages simple, so as not to overwhelm our clients with choices, but if you have something specific in mind we are happy to build a bespoke package that is entirely personal to you. Extra prints, wall art products, photobooks and digital image files can be added on to any of our packages. Or if you prefer you can just pick and choose from our a la carte price list.
We believe that the quality of our work speaks for itself and that when you see your images you will want to own them. So we won't ask you for a large shoot fee, we'll just charge you an affordable £40 deposit to secure your slot in the diary. After the shoot you will receive that deposit back in a credit to spend on prints or against the cost of any of our packages.

Portraits while you wait
We are delighted to announce our While You Wait portrait service. We believe Studio G is the only local photographer or studio to offer this service. Come in and have an individual or family minishoot in our white studio then enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while we get your images ready for you. In around an hour from arriving you will be able to take away either a disc of six web resolution images or three A4 prints. Please note that this service is subject to our availability and must be pre-booked. Specialist lighting and editing effects are not available on this package. Call Lisa on 0161 300 6224 for more details.
