Lawson Whitaker Photography | About
Lawson’s career has evolved along with the world of photography. His iconic landscape images adorn homes and companies worldwide. From high school senior portrait to the board room, local to international client, dark room to digital painting, his unique vision invites viewing of the familiar in a totally different way. By melding light, subject, and style with his distinctive vision and years of experience, his images become a medium of communication explicit as the written word.
Artist Ideology: Lawson carefully considers the intent of the photo; how will the image be used, what is it meant to communicate, which always takes branding or purpose into account. Every commercial image is designed to sell a product or a service, every family image shows a unique and individual emotion, every landscape captures a place in time.
A typical session: “There is no typical session. Often the client will view shots later and a knowing look will come on their face as they see a corner or wall as they have never seen it before.”
