Lansdowne VA Portrait Photography

February 8th, 2015 Comments off

We recently did four sessions of portraits in Lansdowne Va, within the Lansdowne Resort. We’ve done 23 of these portraits for SSP Ameraica at this point. It’s tough to get everyone together in a big company like this, so we have to reproduce the look time after time. We do like to have some variation in the backgrounds and poses we use, so they look nice when all displayed together.

Photographic Subject Matter

November 2nd, 2009 Comments off

The key to making good photography is to get the camera in front of something interesting. Putting the camera  in an interesting place or looking closely at something of interest usually make good pictures. I try to find clients that can get me in front of something worthy of  photographing. If the product, person, or place isn’t of interest to the intended viewer, then there’s only so much I can do to make a successful photograph. “It is what it is; I just take pictures of it.” My job as a photographer is to recognize the qualities of a subject that are the most intriguing and focus on those qualities.

Finding a good subject matter for photographs has been the driving force in my life. It drives almost everything I do, including having two kids. I told my wife that I wanted kids so that I would have someone to play with, but the truth is I needed portrait subjects.

Alicia’s Studio Portrait

This portrait of Alicia Thurston was made to advertise her morning talk show.  It’s a show for lawyers which airs in spanish.  Alicia is fun, fresh  and entertaining, so the directors wanted to use bright colors to portray her in this way.  It’s not your average legal talk show.
