Photographic Artist, Photo Assistant & Digital Retoucher.

B. 1996, London, UK

Concerned with materials, objects and space, Portet's practice often pairs photographic processes with a curiosity for the installation and physical potential of the medium, to explore subjects and their relationships with space and materials, in reality, and through their reproduction. 

Since receiving her Foundation Diploma in Art & Design from the London College of Communications and First Class degree in Photography from Manchester School of Art, Mia has been awarded by the Castlefeild Gallery, Manchester as their honorary graduate, co-produced and exhibited her work as a part of Rencontres d'Arles photography festival in France and also exhibited in China as part of Pingyao International Photography Festival. 

The past two years have seen Mia working in London as a Photo Assistant, Set Stylist and Digital Retoucher to a variety of commercial photographers, as well as working on her own commissions and personal projects. Aiming to continually widen her skillset, and use her artistic background and outlook to shape her own career in photography and the creative industries. 

Portet's photographic style and eye translates well into her commercial work, having worked for a range of clientele including Folk Clothing, BEAST London and Mini Uk to date.
