Helen Bartlett / Family Portraiture

Category: My Inspiration

Read my inspiration and work that goes on behind the best portraits of one of London’s finest professional photographers. These blog posts show what it takes to create fine art family portraits from one of Europe’s hardest-working family portrait photographers.


MY INSPIRATION – my dad’s Christmas portrait of me

Sometimes on the blog I like to share images that inspire me, often images taken by my father who was an incredibly talented photographer and who taught me the love of this medium as a child. We spent hours in the darkroom together developing film and making prints and his endless patience ensured that I learnt to love making photographs.

This image is of me and it's one of my all time favourites. I often come back to it at this time of year as it makes me think back to my wonderful childhood. I hope that the images that I take of families now will be as special to them as the children grow up.
