Stop Me and Buy One – Cool, refreshing portrait photography
From Cowes’ busy regattas, to the Seaview’s pastel-hued seascapes, Mandy Herbert is a hobbyist photographer who excels at capturing character in contemporary photo portraits. Camera-shy folk marvel at Mandy’s skill for putting them totally at ease, and at her gift for depicting people with warmth and style.
Mandy spends her time on the Isle of Wight, where vintage seaside paraphernalia and lambent coastal sunlight make for softly-hued stippled backdrops. Here, life slows down and exhales, and close family bonds are sacred.
Twice a year, Mandy visits London’s Hackney – the UK’s fastest-paced creative quarter. Her trips to Broadway market, taking in pop-up galleries and street fashions on the way, make for visual culture expertise. It’s this visual mix that makes Mandy’s portraits so fresh and contemporary.
