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.

The Haiti Project

May 16th, 2014 Comments off

    Recently, we volunteered our services to a non-profit organization bringing education opportunities to underprivileged children in Haiti. 140516_StewartImage_Photos

  La Vallee Alliance is restoring libraries, schools and services for children that were damaged in the earthquake. A client ask us to help his daughter with visuals for a fundraiser and we jumped at the opportunity to use our marketing and advertising skills to make a difference in these children’s lives.

We took the groups archive of images and selected the best for posters and a slideshow to be used for fundraising.  We used our  skills to make the amateur images look their best.  The images added the needed illustration of their work that opened minds and wallets to the cause.  Hopefully our effort makes a difference in the lives of the children who were hit hard by the earthquake.

“Michael … These look great!!! Thanks so very much!!!”

“Michael: Ann’s Haiti event was a huge success. Photo display a top hit. She said, ‘Michael made my photos look like National Geographic.’ Many thanks.”




StewartImage does several pro bono jobs every year for causes we believe in, so don’t be afraid to ask if you need photography services for a charity or fundraiser.

Green Screen Portraits

April 13th, 2014 Comments off

We often shoot background images for our archive while on location for photography assignments.  We frequently use green  screen (chroma key) techniques to make a portraits and drop them onto images from our background archive. We have thousands of backgrounds & elements: buildings, skies, grass, bushes, etc. in our archive.  Many of the bushes and other elements have been isolated from their surroundings over the years for various projects.  You could say, the grass is always greener on the other side of Photoshop.  Placing portrait subjects onto random backgrounds does require finesse  to look natural, but we find this to be a compelling way to make interesting and flexible portraits.  See below green screen portraits of structural engineers:

Arlington Architectural Photography

October 3rd, 2012 Comments off

We recently photographed the Westlee building in Arlington, Va.  for an architectural client.  Early fall is a great time for architectural photography in the Northern Va area.  The trees and grass are still green and the skies are clear and blue.  It’s refreshing to get some “Clean” sun instead of the hazy light we get for most of the summer around Washington DC.
