A long word that describes a shoot with just one person. what is portrait photography, what kind of pictures do you take and do I have to look like a model to have a portrait photograph taken of me? Do we just stay in the studio or can I go outside with the photographer too? I'll answer all of that for you here and I also have one or two tips ready for you.
Portraits have been around almost as long as photography itself. The first portrait dates from 1839 and shows the face of Robert Cornelius. He assumed it was the very first photograph in human history, but he was dead wrong, as this was taken 13 years earlier with an image showing the view from a study at Le Gras.
Back to the present. With a portrait, we photograph only you, without other people around you. You don't feel comfortable with the idea of being alone in front of the camera? Rest assured, after a short period of getting used to it, it won't feel strange for you anymore, because we'll do everything we can to make your time in our studio in Munich as pleasant and fun as possible. After all, you should enjoy the moment and maybe then feel a bit like a model. Of course you don't have to be one. We are all far from the definition of "perfect" and yet we all have our individual and characteristic ways that make us who we are. That's exactly what we're trying to do with our lens, light. Capture perspective and creative ideas in a photo.
There are also no limits to your creativity. Are you passionate about music and do you play an instrument? If possible, please bring it to us. A wide variety of sporting passions, books, games and many unique hobbies have already found their way into ours Munich photo studios. Your personal style of clothing should also be visible in your portrait photos. And this is also a tip: Only bring outfits that you really feel comfortable in. If you feel disguised, you will also look disguised in your photo. The right make-up also provides a small boost in self-confidence. We would be happy to book a make-up artist for your shoot.
Of course we have at the Portrait photography Munich as well as the possibility to take pictures indoors as well as outdoors. In the studio we can influence the light ourselves so that your facial features, your outfit and your accessories are perfectly staged in front of the camera. We portrait photographers can create a wide variety of images and lighting situations. From a creative, shadowy portrait in front of a black background to a modern lighting in front of a bright background, everything is possible.
If you're looking for more "natural" portrait photos, it's best to get out there. We pack our camera and lenses and take you for a short walk through the surrounding area or meet you at an agreed meeting point in Munich or the surrounding area. The natural light and surroundings make your pictures look even lighter and some just feel more relaxed and detached outdoors.
It doesn't matter whether you decide to take photos indoors or outdoors, together with us you create a lasting memory that you can, for example, record in a photo album you can hold on to for years to come. You can find out more about portrait photography and our prices here.
