"As a photojournalist for newspapers, I’ve learned that a great photo is created when you anticipate what is going to happen. Just as important is understanding professional lighting to get the correct exposure. Combining both takes your picture from mediocre to extraordinary."  — Steve Whysall

WeddingWire Whysall Photography Reviews, Best Wedding Photographers in Washington DC - 2015 Couples' Choice Award Winner
 
“Simply put, we lucked out with Steve. Our wedding photos were more artistic, beautiful, and unique than we could have possibly hoped for. We have heard from so many family members, friends, and coworkers tell us that our photos are the best photos they have ever seen. At the risk of sounding narcissistic, we have to agree. So like I said, we really lucked out. Look no further. Steve is a true talent and is the best at what he does.”
— Chau

No Food Stylist Needed

When you photograph food it should reflect all the passion your vision used to create it.  You can be a great food photographer, but if you don't understand what is special to create the plate, you will never design it properly.  As a former professional chef for 15 years around the world at exclusive restaurants, I understand how the flavors all work together, and how to present your dish to make your food sell. I bring your food to life with my creative compositions and my expert lighting techniques.  As an honors graduate from The Corcoran Gallery of Art in D.C., I display your food in an artistic manner.  I draw upon my experience with National Geographic to shoot your food photography with expert lighting techniques.  There is no need for a food stylist with me!

Product Photography

 

You want your products to sell! Never trust a photographer who claims to be a "natural light" photographer.  The truth is a true professional photographer is paid to light the set as much as to create the professional composition.  My 5 years of National Geographic training is where I learned my expert lighting techniques.
