Awake Portrait Photography focuses on personality environmental exploration over traditional studio photography. I primarily work with artists, musicians, writers, and small business owners to create portraits that are both genuine and slightly surreal at the same time.
I specialize in portrait photography for those seeking to expand their audience and make a lasting impression. I don’t take snapshots. I use hand-crafted action plans to create promotional portraits based on your objectives. All of this started in college when I began photographing friends on a regular basis. I’ve discovered over the past 10 years or so that everyone has an important story to tell, and that photography has the power to do this, albeit not as a whole but in select glances, a pose, or a specific look. The power of portrait photography never ceases to amaze me.
