Award winning commercial photographer Sara Porter was born and raised in Liverpool.
Having originally studied photography whilst at school, she continued developing her photographic skills during a career in teaching chemistry in the UK and France. She made the switch to full time commercial photography in 2006.
She is known for her ability to specialise in a variety of specialisms, as can be seen in her portfolios saraporterphotography.co.uk/portfolios/
Sara is frequently in demand for her on location commercial work as a result of her creativity and her understanding of her client's PR and marketing needs. In October 2020 she received CAA approval/ PFCO (permission for commercial operations) for drone photography. This is a CAA requirement for all commercial drone photography work.
Whilst based in the North-West, work takes her across the UK and Europe.
