Helen Bartlett / Family Portraiture

Article on Helen Bartlett Photography in Cliick Magazine


It’s always lovely to see my work in print and so I was thrilled when the fantastic American photography magazine Cliick got in touch to ask if I could write an article about my love for Black and White photography and how and why I chose to set up a business that specialized entirely in monochrome family portraiture.

It’s a subject that is close to my heart, I’ve always loved black and white photography and my dad’s influence shines through my work. Thinking back to those days as a child working in the darkroom with my dad, printing my pictures will always make me smile. I love the timeless nature of black and white, how it transcends fads and fashions to concentrate on the essence of the subject, it’s perfect for portraiture.

I also love to share my work and teach other photographers, to help those who are finding their way and deciding on the personal beliefs and visual choices that will allow them to develop their own photographic voices within their own businesses. It’s so important to find your own vision, to know where it comes from and where you want it to go.

I really enjoyed writing about my use of Black and White photography for my family portrait business in this magazine article. Do keep an eye out for the magazine if you are interested in reading it in full, it’s a lovely publication, definitely worth a read.
