Cliff Krous Photography is inspired by character and emotion, and really anything that brings out the combination of both. Whether photographing weddings, families, individuals or commercial work we’re trying to pull out the character of who and what is in front of the camera and the emotion from the ones viewing our images. Character is what really makes an image great and the greatest part is everyone and everything has character. We hear all the time “I’m not very photogenic”. Well we say to that “if you have character then your photogenic”. It’s our job as photographers to capture your character so you never can say that phrase again.
I Am a self taught photographer and have a degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Seattle. Graphic design is a field that requires a creative and knowledgeable mindset. As a graphic designer you need to know the people or company your working for and at the same time know the people or audience that will be looking at the work to be able to invoke a relationship between company and customer. I have taken my over 15 years of graphic design experience and combined it with my photography to invoke those same type of relationships between me and the ones I work with. I like to take the time to get to know you and find out what kind of person you are and what it is that’s going to bring out the character and the feelings you’re wanting to portray.
Once I’ve gotten to know you a little better, out comes the creative side of me to enhance your experience with me even that much more. So please feel free to browse through our galleries and give us a call. We would love to get to know you and find out what type of character you are.
