Portraiture and Architecture

Welcome to George Soules Photography

George Soules Photography specializes in pictures of men, women, and youth. My style combines artistry with technology to create images that are both beautiful and lifelike. I love meeting new people and helping them feel comfortable in front of the camera. While my goal is to make you look your very best in a photograph, I want you to enjoy the experience and have some fun during our photo session together.

Portraits & Headshots

The key to a great portrait is the lighting combined with an expression that captures your confidence, friendliness, beauty, or warmth. A portrait can be full length or just your head and shoulders whereas a headshot is only your face. The backdrop is typically plain, but lit in a way that makes you stand out in the picture. People often associate the word “portrait” with a picture that is formal and stuffy, but I prefer casual, artsy, edgy, or even glamorous.

Environmental Portraiture

Taking pictures of people in the places where they work or play is what I like to do most. The environment is the photo’s backdrop and the person is the subject. The challenge is to light both in a way that doesn’t just capture a moment, but also tells a story. An environmental portrait can be taken in a place that illuminates your life and surroundings, or in a location that’s simply fun or looks cool and edgy.
