Atlanta Portrait Photography
Portrait photography is a big genre. It includes editorial portraits, commercial portraits, commissioned portraits, headshots, and family photography of all kinds. My specialties are as follows;
Editorial portraits are portraits taken for publication that are not intended for advertising. This can be for newspapers, magazines, and specialized periodicals. Fraternities call on me to shoot for them when they have subjects in Atlanta for instance. The local magazine space is a little confusing. Magazines like Points North or Suwanee Magazine that I shoot for seem to blur the lines a bit. It's more of what is sometimes referred to as "advertorial". Interesting that the spell checker recognizes that word.
Commercial portraits can be businesses looking for a special shot of their CEO. These can end up on websites, annual reports, sent to their college fraternity, and used for other such press releases. A commercial portrait is really a deluxe headshot set in an environment that contextualizes the business persons role.
Portrait Photography - Family
Surprisingly most of my family portraits over the last 5 years have been editorial shoots for magazines. Local magazines often feature articles on local families and family businesses. Recently I did a shoot of a family at Lake Lanier sponsored by REI outdoor gear.
Professional Headshots, and headshots of all varieties, are my strong suit. I'm often called in by a corporation to shoot a number of their employees in a single day. Sometimes as many as 30 or so. For a headshot day to be successful the company should budget 20 minutes per headshot and let me work with each employee. This achieves the best results. Having the subject walk over to my computer and take a look at the set of shots we just did seconds earlier is a great way to develop a session and get great expressions from the subject.
