Professional Boston photographer specializing in personality portraits and headshots
People “know” so much about you by looking at your picture.
That is because people are judgmental and impatient. My job is to take that human nature, turn it around, and make it work the best for you. Portraits are a semiotic design process, not a snapshot.
What people see in your picture is the judgment on what you choose to reveal. How does your audience believe you are so good? How do you create and select the right picture? That comes from the process integrating your social and professional contexts and your goals in the visual message.
In short, our photography connects your personality to your audience’s mind.
To accomplish that end at a higher level, our core concepts include:
Today’s standard is to feature a bit more personality and enthusiasm, adjusted to your industry. The facial expression and posture in the photo are critical as the corporations increasingly over-analyze limited information they gather. They also value emotional intelligence. Give your audience some reason to like you.
We know real people have insecurity. BEAUPIX is a place for real professionals who want to enhance something in their career or life.
Sample images on this website are 100% real work. Many people had jobs like yours, with bosses that aren’t very nice, or they needed a job. (There are photographs of actors, models, musicians and other creative professionals on pages that describe services for those specific professions.)
The vision to realize the above goals is by empowering people and encouraging their curiosity to make things a bit more interesting. We also explore creative approaches to counteract against social biases, as evidenced by the diversity of people represented in our sample images.
I’m a conceptual and personality photographer, who shoots primarily in Boston and New York City. I shoot commercial work for corporations, professionals, and creative industry. I also shoot fine art photography. I enjoy visually connecting conceptual dots.
I’m available for expert interviews on any photography-related topic mentioned on this website, for a blog and other media writers.
