WHO is Shannon Adelson?
I like to think of myself as an audio-visual multi-media explorer, a sort of ambassador of the Arts & Entertainment community. I love working with other creative people, that are equally passionate about the pursuit of their dreams. Having spent decades both on stage and behind the scenes, I have an intimate understanding of the challenges and obstacles Artists face along their journey of personal and professional discovery.
WHAT does being ‘shot by Shannon’ involve?
Powerful portraits captured in a candid, photojournalistic style. While there is a time and a place for posed shots, I prefer the authenticity of unscripted, unrehearsed moments frozen in time. As we get to know each other, I’ll observe unique aspects of your personality, and highlight the most flattering features.
WHERE do these portraits come to life?
Real life takes place out in the real world, so I don’t shoot in a studio. Lifestyle and event portraiture shot on location provides a sense of comfort and familiarity for most people. Depending on your needs, we’ll find an environment that helps enhance the qualities you value.
WHEN is the best time to shoot?
We all have busy schedules, and life’s priorities often make it difficult to plan the perfect session. I’ll work with you to find the most convenient time to get your personalized photo experience on the calendar.
WHY do I create artistic portraiture?
I am passionate about photography; but more than that, I believe creating a memorable image for you involves a special collaboration. Your feelings are important, and the final product should reflect the strengths you wish to showcase. Together we’ll capture a magical moment in time, and preserve it for you to share with friends and family.
HOW do you decide if my style matches your needs?
Every client is different, so I approach each situation with an open mind. I recommend browsing the imagery here on the website, and asking any questions you may have via the email CONTACT form in the navigation Menu at the top of the page.
