Modelling Portfolios

Not only are you supplied with confidence building exercises, I also offer modelling portfolios to new and experienced models alike. These sessions involve complete training in posing techniques, personal advice on ways to pose your own body type, as well as unique tips on which expressions suit you best.

Sessions also include a guide on how to begin your modelling career, how to spot scams, which websites will help advertise you for free, and also which local agencies will get you into your desired genre of modelling. I also offer references for applications to these agencies, as well as always being available to answer any questions in the future about the industry. I often stay in touch with my models for months after the shoot to get them started.

Each photo shoot can last anything from one hour to five: all depending on what you require. There is no extra charge for the lengthier shoots. A make up artist is available should you want a bit of pampering for just £35. After the shoot, we take a look at the photographs and you choose how many you would like edited. Finished photographs are then emailed at maximum one week after the shoot date, perhaps more if more than 30 are ordered.

Event Coverage

Hiring me to capture your event is a fantastic way to forever remember the success and of course hard work put in your company. Whether you would like me to be more in the background to capture the natural feel of the event, or are looking to earn a bit of extra revenue via a studio set up, I can provide all you require.

The Natural Package

Costing just £25 an hour, I will arrive at the venue 15 minutes before requested to set up, and proceed to photograph everything I see. From the action you’ve arranged on stage, to the reactions of audience members, I promised a 3D experience: seeing a complete picture of your event taking place. If you would also like portraits of attendees for lifestyle magazine write ups of your event, just let me know! All packages are bespoke, so are catered to your specifications of what you will then be using the photographs for.

The Posing Package

Ideal for proms, ladies nights, and shirt/tie events, the posing package gets you the studio set up at your event as well as my services completely FREE. I can provide professional, and friendly portraits for all who desire it, and charge just £10 per portrait, either printed or sent via email (with copyright). For the exclusive right to set the studio up, your company receives 25% of the total profit from sales of photographs, which is a handy way of earning extra revenue from your event without having to lift a finger. I’m willing to negotiate a higher percentage if the event is a charity fund raiser as these matters are very close to my heart.

Family Portraits

Fed up of trying to get the “perfect” family photo to go on your wall? Come down to my studio today and let me show you how easy it can be! Having had experience in a busy Derby portrait studio, I’m more than used to dealing with new borns, troublesome two year olds, and stubborn teens. With a keen focus on it being a fun experience for all, whilst getting all the shots you’re after, you’ll receive an array of photos from the posed to the natural.

But that’s not all I can offer. Why not have a couples shoot to celebrate your love? A photo shoot with your partner can be as mushy or as casual as you see fit. Whether as a present for your other half, or for a classic canvas on the wall, book in today!

Still stuck for ideas? How about a shoot with your little (or not so little) ones? I can capture both adorable shots of your little angels as well as something with a little bit more attitude and personality. Each shoot is catered to your style and your ideas of what side of your children you’d like to show, so be as adventurous as you’d like!

A photograph needs to be more than just a 2D object. It needs to tell a story of the person or object within it. I find this to be even more the case in advertising and in business, as your product needs to be seen as an achievable aspiration by its audience. Whether shooting portraits, products or events, this is what I aim to achieve. I refuse to be the one-shot-and-leave photographer, and work with you to create your own vision whilst offering guidance along the way. I've 8 years of photographic experience ranging from weddings to corporate, and also a 1st Degree in Fine Art Photography. Last year I also came third in the Professional Photographer of the Year award held by the Photographer's Guild, as well as being fifth in National Photographer of the Year. I have recently begun confidence building workshops for individuals who feel that a portrait session is far too pressurized to just jump straight into. This involves a counseling session to get to the route of the individual's insecurities, and to then capture their essence in the photograph, as opposed to just a 2D image of how they look. Services I can provide: Events Portraits Make Overs Confidence Building Workshops Weddings (through Electra Films) Products Family Baby Modeling Portfolios Book Design Advanced Photoshop Airbrushing and Editing I work full time as a freelance photographer, and own both a studio and all my own equipment to take on any project, so you can dream big!

Easy and fun, with a beautiful result




Rei did the first professional photos for my 6-month-old son. She was very professional, yet very easy to deal with - even though my son was being rather difficult! She had some great ideas for shots, and even though he wasn't being the easiest subject, she managed to get a set of stunning photos! Whenever I show them to people, they are always impressed and ask to know where I got them done. I will definitely be arranging our next set of photos to be done by Rei.

Amazing, Fun and Professional




I was so nervous before my first photo shoot but Rei Bennett helped me to relax, suggested different poses which made it so much fun. I also found it very difficult to finally pick the photos I wanted as they were all so nice. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to have a photo shoot. She has very competitive prices and the final photos are beautiful and represent me perfectly.

Brilliant, Friendly and Truly Professional




Having a shoot with Rei Bennett is a truly pleasurable experience; she is professional, incredibly charming and produces superb results from a completely novice model to a professional. I recommend her whole-heartedly, she has incredibly competitive prices and invests a great deal of time and passion in ensuring your photos are the perfect representation of you.
