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.
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.
This was an entirely new experience for me, a newborn baby shoot!
I recently finished up this promotional video featuring Margaret, Lauren, and the rest of the DuoStar gang.
