4 Lighting - Studio Portrait - Shot At 162 Wind Chime Court In Raleigh NC By Portrait Photographer David Williams

The dictionary defines a portrait as a painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person, especially one depicting only the face or head and shoulders. With that said, I do a lot of portraits, but of business professionals and a few models. Although family photography shows a lot of faces, families are not my focus. I truly specialize in individual portraits.

A core part of what I do are head and shoulder shots also referred to as a headshot. However, a headshot can also be a really tight portrait of mostly just the face. I absolutely love doing individual portraits because I enjoy the individual personalities depicted through a portrait like the one you see to the left. Whether it's more of a lifestyle portrait like the one on the left or a business executive type portrait, I am still absolutely passionate about photographing individuals.

The title of this post "Portrait Photography In Raleigh NC By Photographer David Williams" is appropriate because Brenda (wife) and I have a portrait studio located at 162 Wind Chime Court just off Six Forks Road in Raleigh. The studio is set up perfectly for individual portraits while allowing a home base for the equipment needed for the location portrait work that I do. It's not uncommon for a company in the Raleigh area to hire me as their photographer to set up at their location to do business and executive portraits of the core team or the whole team for smaller companies.

Before the 1980's were over, I had photographed thousands of people for individual headshot portraits. In those days, it was all film photography which although I still shoot some film, I must say that I love digital. The only downside to digital photography is that so many people try to jump in the photography industry without the knowledge needed to create a nice portrait. There is far more to getting a great headshot portrait than just point and click. I believe that someone who just picked up a "nice camera" over the weekend could not get the same result as the portrait on the left. Not only is it a 4 lighting in studio set up, but it also involves camera and composition knowledge along with building a rapport with the subject.

Portraits of individuals are something that I am truly passionate about: If you are looking for an experienced portrait photographer in Raleigh that focuses on individuals, please feel free to call me direct at 919.723.8453 or use the online contact form.
