Portraits by Spencer Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
Just like any other craft, you have to practice and stay relevant. Photographing people is a very skilled job. Within a small amount of time, we have to connect with the client and learn what they are looking for. Then create a photo that makes them say "WOW", all the while delivering one of the greatest experience they've had in years so they will come back and tell their friends.

What do you love most about your job?
I enjoy making my clients look confident and poised while still coming across as friendly and approachable. I do this by focusing on their expressions and those expressions are the heart of my work.
People often tell me they’re not photogenic and I love proving to them that they are. My job is to direct and coach our clients into looking their best. Putting them at ease while we work on the subtle movements of their facial muscles. It is these subtleties that can make a headshot go from something ordinary to something spectacular.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Since elementary school, I've always been creative and artistic. My mother noticed my talent long ago but I was too busy trying to be a football and baseball star. In 2008, I picked up the camera ... and I haven't put it down since. I'm always looking for a creative way to compose an ordinary shot and make it extraordinary.
Why should our clients choose you?
First and foremost, if my work is in line with your own vision then we may be a good fit for you. It is also important that you feel comfortable with how we work together because getting a great picture is a true collaboration. Ultimately, we want you to be happy with how you look in your headshot at the end of the day.
