From Wayne Radford himself…
This book is for the photographer who wants to pre-plan his/ her portrait sessions and produce timeless art for their clients.
So if you’re a professional or keen enthusiast reading this, don’t feel threatened, your skills and continual education should put you many years ahead.
Throughout this book my aim is to give you sound advice on developing your technique and style, by showing you actual studies and diagrams on how I create portraits.
Before I start, I have to tell you I’m not an experienced writer in fact this is just my third ebook. I’m a working photographer first and foremost and my writing is based on my daily work experiences.
Each page is written in a “how to” style to help you better understand how to make your portraits timeless.
My style is classic and timeless, mostly in black and white. I have no interest in trendy, vivid colour as I don’t believe it offers my clients long-term value. The aim of each session is to create portraits that will endure generations and families will enjoy and never tire of. My portraits don’t date.
A timeless portrait in its purist form is a simple portrait. It should be simplified by clothing selection, background selection, lighting, composition and expression. They should also harmonise with the rooms they are displayed in.
These are just a few elements required for a timeless portrait which I will explain in more detail throughout the following chapters.
- How to Create Timeless Portraits
- Clothing selection

- Colours, tones and textures
- Background distractions
- Breaking my rules
- Natural Lighting
- Type of lighting techniques
- Sweet light
- Subtractive light technique
- Additional portable light
- Rule of Thirds and Golden Means Ratio
- Expression and Mood
- Creating Heart & Soul
