I also do Funerals for families at Arlington National Cemetery.  Today I photographed a Army Captain that served in Vietnam. Afterwards I had a chance to photograph this beautiful tree, such an amazing place.

Here is a portrait of someone you might recognize. Yes that is Hillary Clinton. A substantial portion of my business in Washington DC and Northern Virginia is doing head-shot portraits for clients. I bring my portable studio with backdrops and lighting to the client location. However, I frequently encourage people to take some photos that look less staged. The results typically have a friendlier, warmer, and more interesting outcome than your standard portrait. #HillaryClinton #DCphotographer

While I do tons of events and on-location head-shot portraits, I also have many interesting corporate clients. This is a shot we did for a publication. FYI... you may have seen my work in Forbes, USA Today, The Washington Post, People Magazine, and other 'big name' publications. But the "Washington DC Photographer" is also AFFORDABLE! Call me, Sandy Schaeffer, directly at 703-926-0666 today to discuss your project and budget.

A quiet eventing at the Manassas National Battlefield Park.  Never get tired of going for a walk there.  Amazing sunsets.  #sunsets

In my last post I told you a big part of my business in Washington DC and Northern Virginia is doing headshot portraits for clients. I typically bring my portable studio with backdrops and lighting to the client location. However, I frequently encourage people to take some photos outdoors with a natural background. Professional photographers call these "environmental portraits". The results typically have a friendlier, warmer, and more interesting outcome than your standard portrait.

FYI From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
An environmental portrait is a portrait executed in the subject's usual environment, such as in their home or workplace, and typically illuminates the subject's life and surroundings. The term is most frequently used of a genre of photography.

By photographing a person in their natural surroundings, it is thought that you will be able to better illuminate their character, and therefore portray the essence of their personality, rather than merely a likeness of their physical features. It is also thought that by photographing a person in their natural surroundings, the subject will be more at ease, and so be more conducive to expressing themselves, as opposed to in a studio, which can be a rather intimidating and artificial experience.

Iconic Portrait: The Father of the Internet wearing Google Glass!
How cool is this? I just had to share. Used my mobile studion with none other than Vint Cerf, legendary Computer Scientist, recognized as one of "the fathers of the Internet". He is wearing Google Glass (aka "Google GLASS") - a wearable computer with a head-mounted display (HMD) that is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project, with the mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer. He was such a friendly and engaging person, too. Yes he let me try out his device! Google Glass is AMAZING.
