Environmental portraits

One alternative to a standard headshot is what’s known as an environmental portrait. It’s a great approach for artists, authors, and crafts- or businesspeople, because we can shoot with you in your work space, using that as a backdrop to tell more about you and what you do, rather than just showing what you look like. And, if you’re the camera-shy sort, it can definitely help you feel more comfortable during your session, because you’re shooting in a space that’s already familiar to you.

Here’s a shot from a recent environmental portrait session, with an artist who recently relocated to Portland, and some of her tools of the trade. This was shot with natural light, but we can always bring our professional studio lighting to your location, if it needs a little extra boost of light.
