The photo studio is up an running.  Here is a photo of my wife Heather, who was kind enough to pose for a few shots while I worked the kinks out the lighting.  ”Real Photos” is an effort to show people in their everyday real state, not a posed or fabricated event, but the randomness of everyday in how we present ourselves to those closest to us.

We need more models to help fill in our portfolio, if you would like a Real Photo, just contact us and we’ll schedule a time.




Real Photos

Real Photos ; that’s what I’m calling it.  The word “Portrait” has become a dirty word in the photography world.  It solicits images of families all dressed up in their best, kids with perfectly combed hair and photographers shooting standard poses with standard set-up.  I’d like to move away from that.

I was fortunate this week to finish a semi-pro, fully functional photo studio (on a budget) complete with lighting and backdrops.  My goal is to capture the images of people in their own reality; not some made-up scenario that doesn’t ever happen in a person’s or family’s life.  Real photos of the individual in their everyday attire.

This photo of me is how I look as casual me.  It’s not how I dress for work, but how I am around the house and running errands around town.  It’s how the people closest to me know me.  Some days I might wear a suit, others business casual, but that image is for the benefit of others and not for me.  This is a photo of the real me, flaws and all.

Comptois Photography is interested in capturing the real you.  We won’t even charge for the session.  We’ll even give you free digital copies to use on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, or wherever you are known in the virtual universe.  Our goal is to create a portfolio of real photos, without created backdrops or fancy poses – but for the focus of the image to be you.  Contact us if you want to be part of our venture and have the real you captured in a Real Photo.
