The agency
The Portrait Collective photography agency was established by Sam Bowles and brings together experienced photographers based in London and throughout the UK.


We cover events and appearances, and shoot features - especially for publishers and clients in the worlds of sport and food+drink. Our photographers are available for location and studio commissions.

On location

Let us know where your next shoot is taking place and one of our team can be there - either in the UK or further afield. Previous commissions have taken us throughout Europe, to Dubai, the Caribbean, USA and Nepal.

Post shoot, all images go through our studio-based colour balancing process. For briefs that require a very specific finish, a high-level retouching service is also available.
