Im lucky to be one of the few portrait photographers in Cardiff, with my own small studio behind my house. which as far as i looked last time was weather proof too. something really handy in good old UK. I shoot using natural light and studio lights or sometimes a bit of both. It all depends what the client is after. im also keen to take my clients out for some lifestyle type portraits in the lovely parks in north Cardiff. using funky backgrounds or flowers etc. with the idea of looking variation in my photography rather than shooting with a plain white background all the time which is nice for one or two shots. But its certainly the case of less is more when it comes to white back drops dont you think?
