Portrait Awards 2016 Submissions
As portrait shooters with a penchant for character-driven imagery, it's our goal to tell a story with every picture we make. Location is an important element in our storytelling process. It helps drives the narrative of a subject's life, so we try to pay it as much attention as we do the subjects themselves.
When a person is connected to a place, you feel it in the image. So, when we find a person we're interested in photographing, we'll work closely with them to either find or create an environment which resonates with them personally. Sometimes it's in their home, place of business, or where they practice a craft or hobby. Other times it requires a full set construction in our studio. Once the location is dialed in, it's just a matter of letting the subject truly inhabit the space. At that point, our job is to simply capture an authentic moment.
