Portraiture - MDB Photography & Cinematography

Portraiture

Stylised Portraiture

A stylised portrait, is a whole lot more than just 'a portrait'.  It's a collaboration between ourselves and you, to enable us to create striking images.  Images with a wow factor - not just the standard portrait, you could have taken anywhere.

Establishing concept, goals, colour palette, wardrobe, hair and makeup, are key to success.  With the use of mood boards, we can identify your desired look and work with you to enable that vision to become a reality. 

Sculpting and shaping with light, is our speciality.  With carefully selected locations that will enhance the overall aesthetic look and careful planing through concept to capture, we look forward to creating memorable results of beauty for you.   

Portrait Photography

Wall Art

A choice of three finishes  are available for you to choose for your 'Wall Art', in a variety of 72 sizes, starting from 12" x 16" 

Acrylic Pro

Our wall art collection was designed to raise the sensual experience to an entirely different level. From the chromatic adherence, to the precision of the mounting, every detail is intended to provide a pleasurable experience.

The finest design ever for an art gallery experience.

Whether you choose the enhancing power of the acrylic or the warmth of the canvas, your images will be perfectly produced. The exclusive mounting system of the panel, on a monoblock wooden frame, gives our wall art unparalleled stability and structure.

Two thicknesses allow your masterpiece to stand out!

Available in two thicknesses, 1.2 and 2.3 inch., the standout provides solidity and visual consistency without encumbering the overall weight of the panel.

Two finishes, one result: excellence.

Whether you prefer the play of light and reflection of a perfectly shiny surface or the purity of an anti-glare protected image, Acrylic Pro will make the most of your image/s.

Canvas Pro

An unprecedented artistic result.

The professional choice for wall art. Vibrant colors on cotton canvas for an artistic feel, mounted with millimetric precision and sharp wrap corners. A superior quality canvas, mounted on a planar element that will never collapse, or allow the canvas to loosen and bulge. The back panel, available in different colors, is obtained from a rigid monoblock, perfect in every aspect, including the edges and angles with precision to the millimeter. No need to hide the back panel. There are no staples or unsightly mounting. All around perfection!

Canvas Wrap

A classic at its best.

The redefined classic canvas. Through print quality and mounting precision, our Canvas Wrap gets the best out of technology without sacrificing clean design and price competitiveness. With totally precise angles, minus the awkward overlaps so common in the market, this product finally allows us to take a significant leap forward. The panel is made from a rigid monoblock, perfect in every way. No need to hide the back. There are no staples or unsightly mounting. All around perfection!

Style: For Her

What To Wear

Dresses and skirts look amazing and really flatter every female body, especially softer fabrics like chiffon or tulle.

Choosing Colours

Softer, lighter tones and more muted shades, work well. Soft pink and muted blues, mixed with sophisticated light neutrals like heather gray, creams, leather brown and white.

Flattering Your Features

Three-quarter length sleeves create an awesome slimming effect on all arms. Skinny straps or strapless dresses have the opposite effect on arms on camera, so I recommend avoiding those whenever possible if your goal is a set of slimmer-looking arms.  Heels elongate women's legs, making them look fabulous. Closed-toes heels in particular look great on camera because they carry out the line of your leg all the way down to your toe.

Make a Statement

Belts, bracelets and earrings bring great visual interest, so choose one or two that don’t compete for attention.

Although it might seem counter-intuitive, we recommend that you do not get a spray tan before your session, even a few days prior, because it tends to photograph orange even when it’s applied subtly and by a professional.

Hair & Makeup

Whether it’s lash extensions or blown-out hair, professional hair and makeup will give you an extra boost of confidence in front of the camera.

If you’re working with a makeup artist, have her apply your makeup in natural light, if possible, so that it looks fresh and not too heavy. Most of our clients feel like their professional makeup is “too much” at first, since it’s more than you would wear on a normal day, or that they're false lashes look too big - good makeup artists know how to get it all just right for the camera.

Fashion: For Him

The Best Fit

For the most sophisticated and masculine look for men, it has to be long, fitted trousers and closed-toed shoes. So, for your session, it’s best to leave the shorts and sandals at home, together with the loose or baggy trousers or any items of clothing with graphics or logos. Solid shades of gray or navy are a strong compliment to most women’s outfits, avoid the pinstripes or plaid patterns as they tend to distract the eye.

Mix It Up

Many of our guys love to mix a suit coat, blazer or sports coat with a different trouser colour.  It adds some extra visual interest, and break up the colour tones.

Layered Looks

Blazers and waistcoats up the level of any look. Even by considering the addition of a v-neck sweater with a pop of colour from a long-sleeved collared shirt and tie underneath, can provide that extra dimension and visual interest to your photos.

Colour Scheme: Family

Coordinating the Whole Family

As you’re coordinating your outfit with your family, keep in mind that your outfits will look the most cohesive on camera when the colour palette and wardrobe pieces coordinate, but don’t actually “match.” In fact, we recommend that you avoid thinking about “matching,” and instead think about what “fits” together.
