Our photography

Photos by Poe focuses mainly on event photography and portraits.

Our event photography can make just about any business or social gathering more memorable. Photojournalistic-style pictures of speakers, awards presentations and entertainment, as well as overall audience shots, will remind everyone how awesome your event was. Candid or posed pictures of attendees during breaks, meals and receptions will reinforce the memories. Optional photo-booth-style pictures taken with our portable studio lighting equipment in front of your banner or logo will make guests feel like stars on the red carpet.

Likewise for parties, dances, receptions, boat cruises, art openings and other social events. Our candid and spontaneous photos of people having fun help keep the positive vibe alive in the minds of guests. We also cover activities such as dance performances, sports, yoga and fitness.

Our portrait photography comes in an equal variety of flavors. Business portraits help you project a professional image online or in printed marketing materials. We can bring lighting equipment and backdrop to your premises so you can have a formal studio-style shot without going to a studio. Or we can take on-location portraits showing you in your working environment. Best of all, we can do both types at your workplace in the same session.

But our definition of portraits goes beyond the traditional "headshot." Other types of location portraits can include dating/social media images, actor/model portfolio pictures and high school senior portraits. All of these can be shot outdoors in scenic or gritty settings. More important, they can include full-length, three-quarters, waist-up, head-and-shoulders and simple head shots. They also may involve the use of either portable lighting equipment balanced with the background, or natural light only. In short, our portrait photography does whatever it takes to express the real you.

We also do specialized types of photography such as political campaigns, which combine studio-style or environmental portraits with action shots of the candidate at campaign stops, town halls and voter meetings. We also create dramatic composite images for use in posters, flyers etc. Other services include sport/fitness, dance, corporate imaging, product and art item photography.

Whatever your photographic needs, we can often spice up your image by use of non-traditional techniques such as motion blur, silhouette highlighting and minimalist directional light to produce unconventional, edgy images.

The following sets of pictures, arranged in no particular order (and still under construction), illustrate the full range of our event and portrait photography.
