Craig Parton M.A., Counseling Psychology, California Institute of Integral Studies, Concentration in Somatic Psychology

Craig selected our Classic Headshot Session which provides a 45 minute headshot session and three image selections from the proof gallery, to update his professional therapist headshot, website and Psychology Today profile.

We photographed our client in our natural light studio, Studio Northwest, located in Portland, Oregon using our south facing window light and light modifiers.

Lighting Setup

We used window light from the large windows and V-flat light modifier to create shadow on both sides of Craig’s face.

When using natural light the diffused light acts as a very large wide band of light like a 7 ft umbrella modifier for strobe photography. A trick we use when on site and natural light is not available.

Below is an example of our studio set up . The studio setup is using the large windows and v-flat modifier. An additional modifier is used during the session.
