Steve Lowrey @ Atherton Photography Studio

Welcome to Atherton Photography Studio, run by the talented and experienced professional photographer, Steve Lowrey. Our studio specializes in portrait photography, including headshot photography, family photoshoots, black and white portraits, and more.

“In the box” photography sessions creatively capture unique, playful portraits within a confined box, offering a fun, distinctive experience. Several pictures are stitched together by the photographer giving a single image made up of all the separate box images.

Unlike many wedding photographers, I am pleased to provide my services for small weddings when only a couple of hours of coverage is required. This is at a low cost compared to full-day wedding coverage. My wedding packages start with a simple 2-hour cover.

Portrait Photography is an Art Form

Welcome to the world of portrait photography, where capturing stunning portraits is not just an art form but also a skill that requires attention to detail and a creative approach. As your photographer, I understand that the process involves creating a comfortable environment for you as my subject, which allows me to capture your personality and character.

Before the shoot, I take the time to get to know you, understand your style and preferences, and build a connection with you. This way, we can work together to create images that truly showcase who you are.

One of the essential elements of portrait photography is lighting. Whether we’re using natural light or artificial light sources, I know how to manipulate and control light to create a stunning portrait. I also pay attention to composition, which involves framing and positioning you within the frame to ensure that you stand out and the background complements you.

Once the shoot is complete, I take the time to edit and refine your images. This process helps me achieve the desired look and feel and ensures that your final images are nothing short of outstanding.

While professional shoots are great, personal projects are also essential in developing my skills and showcasing my creativity. These projects offer an opportunity to experiment with different styles, techniques, and subjects that I may not have the chance to explore in a professional setting. They also help me build my portfolio and showcase my unique approach to portrait photography.

If you’re looking to capture great portraits, here are some tips that can help you produce outstanding results:

  • Build a connection with your photographer to create a comfortable environment
  • Pay attention to lighting and how to manipulate and control light to your advantage
  • Focus on composition and positioning yourself in a way that complements you
  • Pay attention to the background to ensure that it complements you
  • Take the time to edit and refine your images in post-processing

In conclusion, portrait photography is an art form that requires attention to detail and a creative approach. Whether you’re a professional or a hobbyist, taking the time to develop your skills and experiment with different styles and techniques can help you produce outstanding results that showcase your creativity and expertise. With these tips, you’ll be on your way to capturing beautiful portraits that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
