Portraits for a Lifetime
Good photographs show a person's outside, Great portraits reveal their character.
Images that show the spirit and character of an individual use a combination of light, composition, and captures a moment which tells their story.
With years photographing portraits for national newspapers, magazines, and wire services, I endeavor to capture storytelling moments. Whether you are the local soccer star or a world famous director, no subject is too small nor too difficult.
From senior portraits & families, artists & musicians, to the executive, I'll capture the unique side of your character.
Here's what one client says about their photos:
"Not only did Paul capture her beauty but he captured the beauty of the Bellingham, WA area. Paul made her dream come true. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts; you captured the innocence of youth and the maturity of adulthood. My wish is that EVERY graduate could experience the life long memories that you created." - Michael
