Traditional Portraits \ Classic Portraits

Jason’s photographic style is deeply entrenched in traditional lighting and cinematic light patters. Jason believes that by continuing to use techniques of the old masters, the images from your session will be just as relevant decades from now as they are today. It’s very important to Jason that the photo’s he creates of you won’t look as dated as 80’s glamour portraits do today. 

In addition to traditional light patters Jason believes strongly in the power of posing and has hundreds of hours experience photographing nude subjects. His knowledge of how light falls across the body coupled with his theories on what angles will flatter your unique body type most, influences Jason’s posing direction for your photo shoot. 

Traditional portraits are classically beautiful and have a track record going back hundreds of years in in the form of classical paintings. These traditional techniques as so well established we still see them applied in major film productions to this day.
