SIGNATURE PORTRAITS

Hover on right or left sides to scroll, click for larger sizes!

We are creating a collection of portraits of individuals who have contributed in a significant way to our culture. These individuals may come from any walk of life, and their contribution is not tied to a genre. The objective is to honor people who have achieved greatness in their field of expertise. From heads of state to artists, from scientists to religious leaders, we are looking for the best of the best to create a collection of compelling portraits that has not been done in this century.
 
Master Photographer Yousuf Karsh documented many world leaders and significant individuals in his day, and those portraits have stood the test of time. Kevin G Saunders’ photographic voice is similar, using traditional portraiture, classic lighting, and the techniques and execution that bring out the visual story of the individual — we want to capture the person, not their profession.
 
Our main goal is to create an image that is beautiful, timeless and compelling, and will be appreciated forever.
 
All our Signature Portraits are offered on fiber-based gelatin silver paper, created in the darkroom. No modern inkjet or giclee printer can approach the level of quality that true artisanal darkroom prints can provide.
 
We offer contemporary frames as well and at the 30" and up level, we provide complimentary frame
lights and a custom silver leaf hand-lettered nameplate.

The Signature Portrait session is focused on creating your dignified legacy and Kevin has the ability to find your emotional signature and capture it respectfully. Sessions last about an hour and we recommend that you or your assistant visit the studio in advance of the session if possible. Many notable individuals have time constraints and we respect them but ask that you give us the time to find who "you" are. Contact us for more information and booking advice. 

COLOR  SIGNATURE PORTRAITS

When we added color canvas family portraits to our offerings in 2016, we knew that the business would scale and grow. This means that Kevin would not be able to create all the portraits the studio produced at some point. 

 

We created our black and white Signature Portraits for a certain clientele and we found that some wanted our best of the best in color as well. Our color Signature Portraits are shown here.

 

Kevin commented that his mother had a painted wall portrait hanging above the family piano for 50 years and he wanted to create a "Red Carpet" line featuring solo portraits of women in color. This also has become one of our Signature offerings.
 
We offer contemporary frames as well and at the 30" and up level, we provide complimentary frame
lights and a custom gold leaf hand-lettered nameplate.

The Signature Portrait session is focused on creating your dignified legacy and Kevin has the ability to find your emotional signature and capture it respectfully. Red Carpet sessions last about 3 hours including full hair and makeup and have unlimited looks. We recommend that you or your assistant visit the studio in advance of the session if possible. Many notable individuals have time constraints and we respect them but ask that you give us the time to find who "you" are. Contact us for more information and booking advice.
