ABOUT LIGHT SCIENCE STUDIOS, LLC
Light Science Studios, LLC offers full-service, fine-art portrait and commercial photography services to the greater Portland, Oregon area, and is available for travel worldwide. As a full-service studio, I focus on providing the best experience from start to finish for my customers.
All services begin with a thorough in-person consultation where we discuss your needs and your hopes for the session. We look at the spaces in your home that we will ultimately decorate with your custom art so we can shoot for the desired outcome during the session.
A few days after the session is complete, we will meet back at your home for your personalized ordering session where you will get to experience your images for the first time with a custom slideshow, and true-to-life representations of your art projected on the wall.
Once your artwork is ready, I will deliver it personally to your home, and hang it with care so you don't have to worry about a thing - you simply sit back, relax and enjoy your new artwork!
IS LIGHT SCIENCE STUDIOS RIGHT FOR ME?
You might ask yourself if Light Science Studios is the best choice to meet your photographic and artistic needs. The truth is that my services are not for everyone. While the best way to know for sure if I am a good fit for you is to contact me for a free consultation, there are a few basic questions you can ask yourself to know if my services would meet your needs and desires.
1. Do you want to INVEST in photographic art that will yield you a lasting heirloom that you will be able to hand down to your children and grandchildren?
2. Do you want a full-service experience where you are pampered and taken care of from start to finish?
3. Do you want the VERY BEST photographic experience with award-winning photographers that give you the pinnacle of creative and artistic expression in order to tell you and your family's story?
If the answer to either of these three questions is "yes", then there is a good chance that I could be the right fit for you, so please contact me with the form below, or by phone, and we will set up your free consultation!
Hi I'm Sam!
I am a Certified Professional Photographer based in Hillsboro, Oregon and I specialize in Commercial Photography and Fine-Art Portraiture. I have had a passion for photography my whole life, and decided to pursue it full time in 2011 with the opening of my own business, Light Science Studios.
I chose the name "Light Science" because I have always been fascinated with the process of photography and the underlying science of light and how we perceive the world through our eyes. In the spirit of light science, I am always looking for new ways to use and manipulate light in my photographs, in order to create dramatic and fascinating images that captivate.
I love having FUN when photographing, and I'm usually pretty easy to spot with a variety of funny noises that work great for gathering smiles from children and adults alike! (See video below) I'm certainly not afraid of making a fool of myself for the sake of authentic expressions, but I'm also very focused on creating a quality art piece for you and your family.
When I'm not photographing, I am usually spending time on the couch with my three dogs (I call them babooshkas), and enjoying a nice evening with my beautiful wife! (See below)
I hope you enjoy browsing my portfolio, and I hope it conveys the love I have for what I do. I can't wait to hear from you and look forward to working with you soon!
