A Bentley Portrait


one of the most extraordinary portraits you and your family can own

Created within a carefully lit studio environment.

Renaissance & Baroque style portraiture created using 21st-century techniques

My goal is to take the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Exquisitely detailed, my portraits impart deep, sharp contrast and provide a traditional artistic look with subtle luminosity, helping to display the realism of a photograph with rich creative enhancements.

👉 My goal of a portrait is to capture a person’s life essence.

👉 you, the viewer, must first focus on the subject’s face and eyes, then on their clothing and lastly, the background.

👉 The experience as a portrait studio allows me to understand what type of light achieves the best portrait results and therefore offers the highest level of customer satisfaction.


The mission is to create an elegant portrait that will last throughout your lifetime. It will be a gift that can be passed from generation to generation.


The final 

There is a choice of finishes with a ‘Bentley Portrait.’

You can commit our artist to further enhance the rendered canvas artwork with wet mediums that will add more depth to the final artwork, or choose to have the work sealed with a clear protective varnish or laminate that will help protect your desired portrait above 100 years.

We have taken the children to see John a few times now for portraits and have never been disappointed. John makes everyone feel at ease and relaxed, and always gets some great natural shots.highly recommended.

I cant recommend John highly enough. He is so approachable, funny and professional at the same time. He makes you feel at ease straight away and this makes for the wonderful portraits he shoots. If you are remotely thinking of a portrait for yourself, family or even pet you wont be disappointed with Johns work.

Down to earth friendly funny guy who makes you feel at ease as soon as you meet him. Very professional and his work is outstanding. I would recommend you give him a call before trying anywhere else.

John is a skilful photographer, and a lovely bloke. I have a terrible time in front of the camera but he managed to make my face look alright and I have a headshot I'm happy with!

When it comes to Manchester I will always represent the true genius of this man’s work.

Not only is John Bentley an amazing photographer he is a beautiful person who’s natural wits have humored me ‘I mean what a fun and funny person he is’ His presence is completely motivational. I recommend John’s talents to all of you back in the UK. His work has inspired me to embrace my future paved journey. His works have been a complete credit to my accomplishments. Until we meet again lovely.
