“Whenever you lift your camera to capture another person – newborn, small, grown-up or old – you are doing the world a favor. You preserve a moment, a spirit, a mood for the person in that photo, as well as for others. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make people proud of themselves. Make them beautiful, memorable, validated and alive forever.”

– Thorsten von Overgaard

I’ll help you improve your images whether headshots, group photos, planned shoots, un-planned shoots, whatever your format. You’ll learn how to us light in a way that will make your subjects beautiful, how to compose your images artfully, which lens will give you the right look, how to pose you subjects and much, much more.

“Being able to learn not just Thorsten’s technique but also his philosophical approach to taking portraits has transformed my ability and approach to photography. Incredible”
