Environmental Portrait Photography
Traditional portraiture does an excellent job of capturing a person’s physical appearance. Environmental portraits are for those who seek photography that also captures an element of who they are as a person. Some people are business executives, some are artists, or musicians. Others identify themselves with a sport, a religion, or by their romantic relationship. There are boat captains, pilots, yoga teachers, kids at play, and those whose passion is illustrated in the homes they’ve created. Each of these themes can lend itself to environmental portraiture.
Portrait Photographer in Delray Beach and Boca Raton
As a photographer of environmental portraits, I’ve learned that advanced scouting and planning, followed by extreme patience is the key. If I’m going to capture a person in their world, I have to adapt my workflow to their environment, and then wait for the moment when their passion shines through. The shoots take a little longer, but the results can be very rewarding. As a photographer in Delray Beach and Boca Raton I have the opportunity to shoot executive power portraits one day and a yoga instructor on the beach the next. Although they are vastly different settings, my process stays the same. I talk with the subjects and try to learn about their passions. I then do my best to translate that information, the shoot location, and their physical attributes into images that illustrate who they are as an individual. The end result is intended to be a photograph that shares a bit of the subject’s story with the viewer.
