Our studio is fully equipped with professional lighting equipment for any sort of portrait , fashion, or product shoot. In addition, we are able to reproduce studio lighting conditions on location with our portable studio lighting. If you want a portrait or a headshot in your home, office, or an out door location, we can produce magazine quality images on location.

The founder, Gerard Harrison, has been seriously involved in photography for over 30 years. He began in film, building his own color and black & white darkroom, where he developed and printed portrait and fine art work. In the early 2000's, when digital became viable, he moved to this new medium. He has advanced Photoshop editing skills, ensuring the highest quality end product for the studio's clientele.

Image Theory Photoworks Q&A

Image Theory Photoworks Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

You don't TAKE a great photograph, you MAKE one. The great landscape photographer, Ansel Adams, compared the initial exposure (what you get when you click the shutter) to a musical score. It's the starting point, but it has to be played and interpreted before it has real impact. From this initial exposure, imagination and creativity must take over if there is to be a good photograph, let alone a great one.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

We just visit about expectations, my capabilities, and how the client plans to use the photos. The conversation evolves from there. On larger projects, I ask for the client's detailed feedback throughout, whenever possible.

What do you love most about your job?

My first love in the arts was writing. In my writing, I was always trying to create vivid images, essentially creating photographs for the reader's mind. Photography is the natural evolution of that urge. I always look for the way to create something beautiful, distinctive, and striking in any project. I'm happiest when I succeed because that memorable image usually is what makes the client most happy, too.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I retired from my former career and had time to fully pursue photography. It's that simple.

Why should our clients choose you?

You should take a look at my work and decide if my creative directions are likely to give you the sort of photographs you want. This site has only a small selection. If you scroll to the bottom of my profile, you can see some Twitter posts. My website has lots more for you to see. And I welcome phone calls to talk about your needs.
