Portraits of Paris,

Rome and the United States. Headshots of Parisians and people around the world by portrait photographer David Henry.

Paris makes for a wonderful photo studio! Have portraits of you, your family and loved ones in the City of Lights with the famous monuments of Paris in the background: Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, l’Arc de Triomphe, the musée du Louvre and the River Seine. Regardez 

The photographs I’m showing here are typical of my classic treatment/concept of outdoor portraits, with the exposure finely tuned between the ambiant light, the sky & clouds, and the flash, all the while paying careful attention to people’s expressions, and the composition; the juxtaposition between the subjects and the background. To make a long story short this amounts to doing studio photography onsite, outside…

Reserve your session…

I been taking portraits for twenty years at least, and I made a great leap forward in 2003 thanks to a better understanding of flash lighting, and especially when I “went digital” in 2009.

People like what I do more and more, I’m pleased they appreciate my work, there is a snowball effect, and it’s a win/win situation… Candid, paparazzi-style pictures of wedding proposals, or even engagements and elopement are my latest specialties!
