Large Group Portrait Photographer in Seattle

Our unique specialty is in producing large group panoramic portraits for all sizes of business. Using a large format panorama camera we are able to include hundreds of people in one photograph. We are able to routinely produce color or black and white prints from these negatives from 24 inches to 6 feet in length and deliver them in less than 24 hours. We also are often called upon to take to photographs of groups of executives including Board of Directors. Often for logistical purposes not everyone in a group can be there on a given day but some clients need to have all subjects appear in one picture together. With our experience in digital retouching, we can solve this problem by photographing some of the group on one day and the others on a different day and digitally combine them all together in postproduction.

Corporate photography rates are competitive with photographers of equal caliber in Seattle and are based on a project-by-project basis. Call us for a quote on you proposed project.
