Portraiture photography for editorial media, firm marketing & the unlimited uses of social media now take on softer and more welcoming & engaging viewpoints. This is the new age of personal brand photos.
As a photographer of personal branding portraits my photos tell a story of person, place and persona. I frame the touch points of my subject giving the viewer a layered impression of the person & the surrounds that are important to them.
These pictures are of my photography clients in San Francisco & Los Angeles. For each shot my clients & I collaborate to find a setting fit for their “story”. I shoot these portraits on location in homes, offices & work environments.
My goal is not only to capture my client’s picture with positive open expressions, ones that are welcoming to the viewer, but also to reflect their creative personality.
