Downtown Saint Petersburg Business Headshots :: Wallace Welch & Willingham

I have had the pleasure of doing business headshots for Wallace Welch and Willingham since 2009 and is always great to work with their team. When photographing a large group of business professionals it is a lot of times easier to set up a mobile studio in the office to save everyone time from having to come to the studio. Therefore, we set up a mobile studio in their hallway to photograph everyone and then proofed the images on a laptop so they could make their selections. Below are the chosen photographs.  If you or someone you know are in need of a new business portrait, please do not hesitate to give us a call 727-851-9965

Downtown Tampa Engagement Photography :: Lavinia + Keary

I had such a lovely time photographing Lavinia & Keary for their engagement session at the University of Tampa in downtown Tampa. We started at 7am and the light was just beautiful! They make such a great couple and simply cannot wait to photograph their wedding later this year! Below are a few of my favorite images and a Q&A:      How did the two of you meet? We met while working for the same company. I kept turning him down so he finally agreed to just be friends and we were for about 3 years until he left the company. He then contacted me about a year later and I finally agreed to go out on a date with him. How long have you two been together? We've been together now as a couple for about a year and a half. How did he propose? The proposal happened 1 month after we started dating. It was low key and on the day before Valentine's day. He'd cooked my favorite dinner and while we were watching tv, he professed his feelings and popped the question. Turns out,  he'[...]

Tampa Realtor Headshots :: Kelly

Recently, I had the pleasure of creating a new headshot for Kelly and thought I would share what she had to say about her experience working with me: "Jonathan exceeded my expectations! I required some professional head shots for business, which for me is difficult. I have never been satisfied with photographs of me in the past - then I met Jonathan. He made the experience easy and fun, and I had the absolute BEST photos in perfect format the next day! I've received the most compliments I've ever received, and all my friends and associates are asking me about Jonathan. I highly recommend his work. He's amazing!!"   Thank you so much Kelly for your kind words!

Clearwater Professional Photography :: Beards of Tampa Bay :: Chris

I am very excited to share another photo shoot I did for my Beards of Tampa Bay project. Chris was a lot of fun to work with and certainly had an epic beard. Name: Chris Baumaister  Where are you from? Long Island, New York Occupation: Owner of Ceramic Creations Inc How long have you been growing your beard? I've had some sort of facial hair for over 20 years but just over a year to its current condition. What started you on this path? Wanted to see how far I could take it. After the initial itchy phase passed it was all downhill from there. What is your end goal for your beard? Make me famous! Jk What is the funniest experience or comment that has happened to you because of your beard? This past Christmas I took my kids to the mall to see Santa, after the pictures where over Santa told my son to go with his mother while he has a talk with Dad. Not sure if it was the belly or the beard but Santa was actually offering me a job. Pay is great, unionized and benefits but I had to de[...]
