Using portrait photography to add a face to your project

Portraits are one of the oldest and most common types of photography. Since cameras were invented - photographers have been creating portraits that capture the personality of their subject in a wide variety of ways. Although the technology and style of portraits has changed through the years, the need to capture the humanity of a person in a candid moment has not.

A portrait can be colourful or black and white - artistic or clinical. They can capture milestone events like graduations and weddings or just showcase the everyday life of a fascinating person. Whether you’re a web-designer, entrepreneur or fashion designer - portraits are the perfect way humanize your work and add a face to your project (both literally and figuratively).

Finding high quality portrait photography

If you’ve ever tried searching for stock photos online - you know the hassle it can be. Studio-quality portraits are far and inbetweeen. Sure - there’s a wide selection of paid options, but these can be costly. If you’re a designer, content-creator, or entrepreneur who’s just starting out, paying $20 for every stock image and self-portrait you want to use can be quite a drop in the bucket. And the costs add up fast - especially if you’re working on a visually-centred project that requires a lot of imagery.

There are other options that are better for your wallet - but tend to be worse for your design. You can take your own photos if you’re feeling ambitious, but if you’re only experience with photography is morning selfies, it might be hard to pick up a new skill fast enough. Plus - if you want the photographs to look professional, you’d need to invest in a high-resolution camera that can costs hundreds or even thousands of dollars in some cases.

With all these costs adding up - it can be easy to get overwhelmed by the prospect of finding good, quality images. Thankfully - we’ve got you covered.
