Shooting in Boston has undoubtedly made me a better photographer. The neighborhoods, the river, the harbor, the architecture, the seasons, the parks and an unending stream of amazing clients have made my home town a ripe harvest ground of unforgettable photo sessions. As March rolls around, I’m itching to get back outside and take more portraits around town. In the meantime, let’s review what I’ve loved so far.
What I like most about this city is you can go for pretty much any look you want, from any neighborhood, really quickly. It’s such a small place, and that means the sun is never really out of reach, and that allows for spontaneous, dramatic and fun shots. Walking from Beacon Hill to the Public Gardens to the banks of the Charles river takes about 10 minutes, and those are three totally different environments. Go from Rowes Wharf to the North End to Charlestown in the same amount of time. The combinations are so varied that your portrait sessions can be really unique.
Boston has a charm that only a small, old American city can offer. This summer, I really want to use more of the Rose Kennedy Parkway, more water taxis, the Cambridge side of the river and the sea port area. Get in touch with me and let me know where you’d like to have your portraits taken in your favorite part of our favorite city.
