Boston Portrait Photographer
Almost all assignments require a portrait photographer at some point. Strong portraits are important because they introduce the main characters. This is true as an editorial portrait photographer and a commercial portrait photographer.
My portraiture work includes authentic executive portraits, professional headshots, and business workplace slice-of-life imagery for company branding
Sometimes I create portraits with a carefully chosen backdrop, lights, and poses. Sometimes the best portrait comes at the end of the day as the sun turns orange and the subject has learned to trust me and shares more of who they are. Either way, being a portrait photographer in Boston didn’t come naturally. It is a skill that I have built up over 10+ years of experience.
This portfolio is mainly editorial portraits, but also includes a few commercial portrait shoots and show a full range of techniques.
Most recently, I have been creating commercial portraits of athletes and adventurers in far-flung locations like Turks & Caicos, Jordan, and Everest Base Camp.
Many of my portraits are made on location with a portable studio of Profoto flashes and stands. I just opened a portrait studio in Somerville, north of Boston! I hope to use the new studio to photograph personal projects, but will enjoy having the space to test out new ideas and techniques.
In this portfolio, you will find several portrait series. My favorite set of portraits were a series of fancy pigeons! Finding all of these pigeons in Egypt and negotiating access was the first challenge. The hardest part was taking the photo before they flew out of my makeshift studio on rooftops.
Also in Egypt I made a somber series of portraits of Morsy supporters at the Rabaa sit-in. It was the month after their president was toppled and shortly before their sit-in was wiped off the streets in a bloody massacre.
