Our creative working process is grounded in respectful, creative collaboration.

How we work

Each situation dictates the formal materials included in the portrait. We might spend an afternoon in conversation with a subject, or the production might happen over the course of a number of weeks, where we revisit the subject in changing contexts over time. In each case, we will explore our subject with great sensitivity and attention—seeking to illuminate their most salient and resonant characteristics.
