Capturing life, one weekend at a time.
Most days I'm wearing a web developer hat, doing my best to design and build interactive applications that are simple to use. I'm fascinated by the way people relate to computers - any machine for that matter. But that's a different story, over on LinkedIn if you're curious.
But I'm also fascinated with photography. Always have been. Ever since uncovering a treasure trove of dark room gear in the attic of my elementary school I've been capturing visual stories through a lens. I'm always learning, exploring, and sharpening an editorial style of photography - realistic, well lit, timeless photos.
I live just outside of Salem, Oregon, with my wife, three kids, two busy beagles and a cat. We have a good time together and the artistic gene seems to be carrying on to the next generation. Proud dad.
This website is mostly a way to share my journey in photography. You can also follow along at the Adriel Henderson Photography Facebook page. Thanks for stopping by!
PHOTOGRAPHING SALEM, KEIZER, AND THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY
I enjoy capturing those significant and special moments in life - senior photos and family portraits, professional head shots, as well as corporate and editorial projects. Full sessions start at $250.
Tell me a little about yourself and what type of photography project you have in mind.
Three weeks jaunting around the American Southwest in our little motorhome, with the challenge of capturing our trip through the fixed 23mm focal length of Fuji's X100t.
There was always something missing in my black and white photos. But here, in this set, something comes alive. After so many years poking at photography, this set suddenly clicked for me.
As they say, careful what you wish for! Right? I signed off my previous post wishing for another low key wedding to sharpen my skills. Just a few months later, here I am wrapping up my second wedding shoot. So, how did this one go? Certainly not low key, but wow, what an experience!
Recently a friend asked if I would photograph their casual at-home wedding, with complete understanding that this was my first go at such an event. I said yes, and dove in over my head!
Last month I took a quick photography trip to our manufacturing facility in Tecate, Mexico. The trip was quick and stuffed to the brim - we were managing both video production and photography and had less than two full days onsite.
Recently I did get to haul my weekend hobby into my day job! I was asked to capture some commercial style photographs of our Portland operation. A nice challenge and a great opportunity to try a different styles of shooting that I'm very interested in.
