Portraits as Unique as You Are...

I am Colin Watkins, a traditional photographer based in Essex, UK. Working with the techniques I learned in college in the 70's I use film photography but inspired by my loves of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, early photography, Julia Margaret Cameron, Irvin Penn and Mike Disfarmer. 

My photographs are all crafted to evoke emotion in the viewer, to be timeless, and to be treasured. You'll see that I don't take standard portraits, but rather I create a scene, use props and endeavour to create something timeless. 

I hope you enjoy looking at my portraits, hopefully find something out of the ordinary. If you would like to discuss having your own portrait taken, or giving a session to a loved one as a gift, please reach out to discuss: photoboothportraits@yahoo.com. My work is on permanent exhibition in Leigh on Sea, 50 Elm Road: CafĂ© Vino.
