When people think of portrait photography, thoughts of a shopping mall studio
comes quickly to mind. Many portrait studios will place an 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 to create an image that tells your story. The picture on the left is of a couple that wanted something different for their portrait.
They also wanted their French Bulldog to be part of the session, and as you can see, he was more than happy to be included in the family 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.
