LOCATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAITS
Portrait stories and team headshots for websites, social media and print publications
We’ve been working with Chicagoland businesses and national publications to produce on-location and cinematic portraits for annual reports, magazine features, websites and social media campaigns for close to 20 years.
With our expertise in lighting, composition and finding the best location that helps to add to the story, we’ll create a seamless experience that results in authentic and compelling portraits.
You’ve got ideas. Concepts like approachability, authenticity, collaboration. You need to capture these and together we’ve got the vision. Let’s bring your ideas to life and highlight the character behind your best asset-your people. Read more about Tori’s approach to location portraits and how she approaches each portrait assignment.
Portraiture has evolved quickly with the advent of social media. Our audience is looking for so much more information about what we do and how we do it. Let’s give them a little insight by capturing you in your element. We’ll play with lighting and other elements in your location to visually tell your story.
If you’d like to try something different but keep it simple, let’s do it. Unlike environmental portraits where the background is used to tell a part of your story, location portraits use the background only for a pop of color and some dimension. The focus though, it’s all on you.
With onsite photography using top of the line photo gear, creative lighting techniques, super-fast turnaround of images and a crew that is both professional and incredibly fun to work with, Tori has you covered. If you’re in need of new portraits for your website, social media profiles or feature story, get in touch.
OUR RAVE REVIEWS
Tori took head shots of my company’s executive team and I highly recommend her for any corporate photography needs. She was easy to work with, exceeded expectations and went above and beyond to make sure everyone was pleased with the way their head shots turned out. Everyone on our team had a great experience and I look forward to having the opportunity to work with Tori again!
We’ve worked with Tori for a long, long time…over ten years now. We use her for studio work and regularly recommend her to our clients who need headshots, image libraries and event coverage. We’re always very happy with the quality of her work, fast turnaround time, ability to stay within the budget and her fun approach.
Tori stepped right in – with her trained assistant, lights, camera and expert eye. She took the time to tour our offices to choose workable settings, was fastidious with the lighting and shooting angles, and even swiped a few shiny brows with her makeup brush! Tori and her team were on time, well-prepared, worked well with all levels of our executive team, and delivered terrific results from the first session.
Tori was very easy to work with. She understood the project, worked quickly and independently, and always checked in at the right times. And of course, they’re some of the best portraits I’ve ever put in my magazine.
Tori is a class act with a great eye and superb leadership and rapport on-site. She’s agile, committed, creative, effective and efficient. She strikes a great mood among executives during corporate headshots and really brought the spirit out of our professionals on a recent “candid” shoot in our offices. I would hire her again and again – for projects in Chicago and beyond. So pleased to have made a contact with an artist and partner like Tori who I can leverage across a variety of business needs.
We are a consulting company, so our product is our people. We had Tori attend our annual team meeting and it was fun to participate! Now, we have real images of our actual team that we can use for so many things. I was told by so many colleagues how impressed they were with Tori and we are so happy with the results.
Tori made our employees feel so confident in front of the camera. With her easy-to-follow directions, personable and warm disposition, everyone felt relaxed. The staff had so many great things to say about working with Tori! She produced flawless and wonderful portraits for our teams at each of our branches and we will definitely be bringing in Tori again as we add to our team.
Toris’ skill with the camera is unquestionable. Perfect poses, lighting and the just the right amount of editing. Add to that her ability to take an individual unaccustomed to being in front of the camera and putting them at their ease and you have the perfect recipe for a successful photo shoot resulting in beautiful images.
We had worked with another photography company in the past and were unsatisfied with their work after multiple sessions. We hired Tori and when she she came in and the experience was night and day! She put us at ease right away and took time to explain to us what she could and could not do. She brought her assistant and a MUA for us and honestly I don’t think you could find a better team. They were time efficient, more than competent, reasonably priced and just had a great energy. I will absolutely use Tori Soper Photography in the future.
Tori is an excellent photographer, and very versatile at handling a variety of subject matter from portraiture to events. She always brings a positive energy to her assignments. With portraiture in particular, she has a great skill for what may be the most important aspect of all…making the subject feel comfortable on camera.
