Workplace Portraits

My absolute favourite (and to give it its proper name) the environmental portrait isn't just a photo: it's a story. A good environmental portrait leaves the viewer in no doubt as to what you do and how well you do it. Environmental portraits are shot with a wider angle, allowing the viewer to see not only the subject but also the tools of their trade and the fantastic things they create. An incredible amount of thought and organisation goes into putting these compositions together, making you and your workplace into a work of art.

These types of portrait are ideal for anyone with interesting workspaces and who have beautiful products and services to show off, from food to artwork, from the perfect haircut to the funkiest jewellery. Tell your story with an environmental portrait by Paul Oscar Photography.
