What is a Portrait Photo?
A portrait photo is a photograph that predominantly depicts the face, or head and shoulders, of a person. The photographer taking portrait will primarily focus on the client’s eyes, facial features and expressions.
Why take Professional Portraits?
Professional portraits are essential for any professional profile or portfolio, online or in print. Professionals, such as doctors, dentists, lawyers, realtors …, use their professional portraits in publications, on their websites and for ads and marketing campaigns. The photos we take, unlike mobile phone photos, don’t get lost when you get a new phone. We achieve our photos at multiple locations and on the cloud to keep them available for our customers years down the road. The pictures we print in our studio are rated to last between 200 years, for color photos, and 400 years, for black and white photos, without losing their vibrance, if well kept.
Where to take Professional Portraits?
Location to take professional photos is a professional studio that is well-equipped with high quality cameras, lenses and lighting systems. Having a the ability to apply, or retouch, makeup in the studio is a great advantage, particularly for high quality portraits that show the finest details of the client’s face.
