Extraordinary Portraits

Our Story

Extraordinary Portraits was created by George Fairbairn after he had used his experience photographing bands and musicians for some of the UK’s biggest magazines and applied it to his own family Christmas portraits. George has continued to create these portraits of his own family every year for the family Christmas card. The response to this first image was tremendous and as a result Extraordinary Portraits was born. Since that time Extraordinary Portraits has expanded to offer unique portraits of children and teens as well as adults and families. Each session is approached in a manner of delivering images that are fun and offer a true reflection of the people that are being photographed.

What Makes It Extraordinary?

Extraordinary Portraits is all about creating portraits that are out of the ordinary.  Unique, bespoke portraits that reflect personality and style.

We are hands on in the planning process of your portrait session.  Our goal is to capture something that is a reflection of a time in life.  We will work with you throughout the creative process and planning.  This ensures that on the day of the shoot everything is ready and planned.  This allows us to create extraordinary images that capture unique personalities.

What Others Are Saying


I’m trying to get on with the cleaning but it’s taken me so long because I keep stopping to look at our portrait.
I really cannot express how much I love it, it’s getting me all teary eyed because it is just US!! And it’s in our little house with all the things that make us ‘us’. Thank you so much George



What an enjoyable piece of art! It was so much fun and so easy to work with George! A creative process we felt part of from the beginning to the final portrait. Frederick is extremely excited about his science lab and character portraits!
And I’m happy, I can tell people we knew George before he was famous!
