I love portraiture.
Though I started my career as a photojournalist, for over 30 years I enjoyed working primarily as a portrait photographer, out of my spacious studio located in central West Virginia.
Now my work is mainly on location, in the homes and special places selected by myself and my clients.
I think I will always be interested in faces and families - people and their relationships with one another.
The great photographer Edward Steichen once said, “A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it."
With this in mind, I have developed skills over the years to not only help people to look their best in a photograph, using lighting and posing techniques, but also I strive to develop a rapport with my clients, whether high school seniors, children, weddings, families or professionals.
My goal is to create portrait art that reveals the unique qualities of the subject or subjects in a visually pleasing manner that will provide enjoyment for many years to come.
These galleries represent some recent work. Feel free to browse and enjoy the images I have created.
Thank you for your interest in my work and please feel free to contact me with your ideas about your special portrait project. ~Jürgen
