This week PCPPA is pleased to feature Tricia Larmore of Ellery Studio LLC on the PCPPA member feature!
Please share a little about your business and what you photograph:
Ellery Studio LLC began in Oct. 2015, I have a professional in-home studio and I also go on location. I’ve had a camera in my hand since I was a kid and got my first DSLR in 1996; it was a Canon Rebel 35mm. I got it right after my daughter was born and took rolls and rolls of film daily.
Could you describe your style and artistic approach as a photographer?
I try and capture a persons authentic self and stay true to them during editing. A little tweak in LR/PS goes a long way and my clients look like the best version of themselves in their portraits. Much of the desired effect is achieved with lighting techniques.
What are your favorite subjects to photograph? How did you discover your passion?
People, for sure. I have had a camera in my hand since I was 7 years old, my little brother was my first favorite subject. When I was 8, I was taken to rodeo and instead of sitting in the stands, I walked around and shot things of interest. Needless to say, I’ve always loved and had a passion for photography.
Who has been your biggest source of inspiration, or greatest mentor in photography?
I’m not really sure where this passion stemmed from. As far back as I can remember-taking pictures has always been my “thing” as well as looking at family photo albums over and over.
What makes your photography business different or unique?
I’m a pretty unique person, with an eclectic background. I connect with all different types of people. Also, I give people what I would want and expect from my photographer…and I have high expectations.
What do you wish potential clients could know about your business?
That I have turned my lifelong passion into a profession. I take this business very seriously and want to meet and exceed my clients expectations.
What traits do you think are important to look for or have as a Professional Photographer?
For me, capturing the mood or emotion of the given situation is important to me. Constant evolution, learning and growth as well as time management.
