​​​Creative Photography Since 1992 

Von McKnelly

 Fine Art Photographer 

 When people think of portrait photography, thoughts of a shopping mall studio
  comes quickly to mind. Many portrait studios will place and individual or family in
  front of the camera for that all to familiar "sit up straight and smile" portrait. Not
  that there is anything wrong with these types of portraits, and we are more than 
  happy to accommodate our clients if a traditional portrait is what they require.

 ​I prefer to capture the realness of someone's personality rather than a fake smile.

Welcome to the website of Von McKnelly, fine art portrait  photographer.
My team and I specialize in unique portraits that truly capture the spirit of the individual and family. Please feel free to browse the site and contact us at  any time to discuss your photographic needs.

Composite portraits are where we can work in the studio for the main subject and
go on location to capture another photograph, then combine the two. As here in 
the portrait on the left and below, we photographed our clients in the studio and then placed them a country setting background that completes the portrait.

When thinking of  portrait ideas, consider what's important  in your life, passions, hobbies or just a fantasy play, dressing up in costume of  a 1950's film noir character for example. A fine art photographer can take your idea  and fine tune the concept creating a work of art that will hang above the mantel for generations to come.
